I'm eager to see you video but there isn't one. Also, shouldn't this be a file-roller bug?

Comment 3 Patrick Klingemann 2011-08-24 18:21:53 UTC
@Tomáš: apologies.  I wasn't sure where to file this bug.  I figured that gtk uses nautilus file chooser dialogs, so I file it here.  I'll move it if this is the wrong place.  Thanks for your response.

Comment 4 Tomáš Bžatek 2011-08-29 14:52:37 UTC
The application you're using is file-roller. However the file chooser is standard Gtk one. Since file-roller extends the dialog, can you please try the same operation e.g. in gedit? Also, does using plain metacity or Gnome fallback mode reproduce the issue?

Comment 5 Patrick Klingemann 2011-08-29 21:25:12 UTC

I'll give that a try this evening

Comment 6 Persona non grata 2012-12-12 10:47:35 UTC

I'm also facing this problem on freshly updated f17 as in 12.12.2012.


Comment 7 Persona non grata 2012-12-12 10:59:31 UTC
This happens only in file-roller and only sometimes (even in the same directory sometimes it works, sometimes not) for me.
Gedit is ok, Web is ok.

Versions of libraries and applications:

Reassigning to file-roller per comment 6

Comment 9 Fedora End Of Life 2013-07-04 00:18:47 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '17'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

Bug Reporter:  Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you 
would still like  to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version  of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 10 Fedora End Of Life 2013-08-01 03:51:33 UTC
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
