cannot change 'behavior' to single-click. (F19 alpha release)
Last modified: 2013-07-10 18:08:56 EDT
Description of problem:
1. open caja
2. click Edit
3. click preferences
4. click behavior
5. default setting is single-click, but it still requires a double-click.
6. click "double click to open items"
7. click "close" at bottom of window.
8. go back and do steps 2 thru 4 again.
9. note it is still set to single-click, but still requires a double-click.
10. click "double click to open items".
Then caja disappears and all desktop icons flash off and back on.
It STILL requires a double-click.
You can do these steps til the cows come home and it always crashes caja
and never activates single-click.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. doesn't crash caja
2. allows single-click behavior.
Fixed on upstream git:
is there going to be a fixed RPM one of these days, please?
The trick is to change to double click and back to single click in preferences.
Does this works for you?
Is the setting is alive if you restart the session?
The fix is in upstream and will be available with mate-file-manager-1.6.2,
if the workaround is working for you i won't patch caja.
Wolfgang: thanks for the hint. I thought I had tried all the possible incantations, and that one seems so simple I'd think I would have tried it, but apparently I hadn't because having just done that I now have the behavior I want.
So, don't feel pressured to issue a fix just for me, but I suspect I'm not the only one who'd like it fixed eventually.
