Feature #308518, revision 3
Title: Nautilus

openSUSE-11.3: New
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Marco Calistri (amdturion)

Wonder if someone can review Nautilus in terms of providing a bigger
flexibility into it usage.
For example:
1) if I try to open a .desktop file into ~.config/autostart, by right
clicking on such file, then I cannot choose any editor to view/edit it
2) if I try to move/copy/cancel... a file into a folder wherein I have
not permissions, Nautilus refuses, why don't offer to select a "su"
option in order to avoid making such kind of operations by exiting
Nautilus and using the terminal?

I think it would be better to request this on

+ Yes, Thomas is right there; that's really the kind of things that
+ should be submitted to upstream bugzilla.
+ (I can't close the fate entry, fwiw)
+ To answer your specific examples:
+ * I believe in the past that it was possible to edit desktop files with
+ right-click. It might be a new design choice, or a bug in the port to
+ gio.
+ * it's a conscious design decision to not propose any "su" feature in
+ nautilus. I honestly don't think this will change.
