Description Piruthiviraj Natarajan 2012-08-01 11:00:52 EDT
Description of problem:
When you add a torrent you should be able to download it to a user specified location on your hard disk. But in Deluge 1.3.5 when you select  file->add a torrent->options->downloadlocation-> other(scroll down to the lowest in the menu).  What ever location you set in "other" is not recognized by the application and it sets itself to default /home/user/Downloads.

So basically the "other" option is not working.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Every time

Additional info:

but except 'other' in the menu all other default Download locations shown in the menu are working.

Its been more than 6 weeks. No reply. I didn't know that bugzilla was a joke.
Comment 4 Calum 2012-10-06 06:33:29 EDT
It is best to report upstream directly to us, however this has been reported already: dev.deluge-torrent.org/ticket/2169
Comment 5 Piruthiviraj Natarajan 2012-10-06 07:06:22 EDT
Thanks for the answer and concern, much appreciated!
Comment 6 Piruthiviraj Natarajan 2013-02-18 10:01:09 EST
Its still not fixed.

Did you even check?
Comment 7 Rahul Sundaram 2013-02-18 14:05:57 EST
Perhaps you didn't understand the status.  CLOSED UPSTREAM  =  it is being tracked upstream.  It doesn't mean it is fixed downstream.
Comment 8 Rahul Sundaram 2013-02-18 14:18:14 EST
On second thought, this bug isn't really in deluge either but in GTK2.  I am going to reassign and request a GTK2 update

GTK2 maintainers - the issue is addressed by the following patch


Upstream discussion at


2.24.15 seems to address this but cherry picking patches is ok as well.  This affects a number of packages using GTK.  Thanks!
Comment 9 Piruthiviraj Natarajan 2013-05-17 05:47:01 EDT
Looks like its solved in Rawhide now 2.24.18.
