Can't enter a path to save a file to
Last modified: 2009-05-13 06:44:06 EDT
Description of problem:
Can't type in the path to where I want to save a file
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time I try to save a file
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Save Link As... on a file on the internet
2. Attempt to type in path
No are to insert path
Just type in the path to where I want to save
If there is some magic key that I need to press to be able to do this, it needs to be somewhere on the dialog where I can read it.
What's exactly the problem?
a) you don't like Gnome file-open dialog and want to write the pathname/filename by hand.
b) Gnome file-open dialog really doesn't work for you
b) would be bug, which we would consider. a) is the upstream decision, which we cannot do anything about
Well I am no fan of the Gtk/Gnome file-save dialog. But since that's what Firefox uses I need to be able to save a file to a path. I have paths that need to be accessed directly (autofs).
So if this is not the right place, tell me where I need to file this bug and I will.
I consider not being able to save a file to directory that I have access to a bug.
Actually, I have overlooked that we are talking about File/Save As... THAT should work. Just write in the location input box the name of your autofs directory and press enter. It should call autofs, make connection and provide you with the content of the directory in the dialog box.
Will test this here, but I have to build NFS network on my computer.
OK that works. I thought that box was only for the filename.
Close this as not a bug at your will -- though usage of this dialog is not exactly intuitive to me.
Yeah, I am not the biggest fan of this dialog either.
