"The folder contents could not be displayed" message when using file search
Last modified: 2009-07-11 11:49:53 EDT
Description of problem:
When using the desktop file search, an error message like:
The folder contents could not be displayed
Error stating file '/home/james/mnt/'/home/
james/mnt'': No such file or directory
is displayed. I click "OK" it disappears. Otherwise search appears to work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right-click on a folder in Nautilus.
2. Select Search for Files.
Annoying error message.
No error message.
The "search for files" context menu item is provided by nautilus-search-tool
If you look in the process list, you see:
dell $ ps ax | grep search
30242 ? Sl 0:00 gnome-search-tool --path='/home/mwilson/Desktop'
But the error message is:
Error stating file '/home/mwilson/Desktop/'/home/mwilson/Desktop'': No such file or directory
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
