|0000487||Cinelerra-GG||[All Projects] Feature||public||2020-08-06 12:33||2020-08-06 12:34|
|Platform||openSUSE x86_64||OS||Leap 15.2||OS Version||Gnome 3.34|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0000487: File Menu - Load Files - Directory address - pressing ENTER for File listing|
|Description||1) Using Copy and Paste in a Directory path from either a file browser (Gnome Files/Nautilus) using Ctrl-L (text path) or from a Terminal (pwd) contains a path like this (even also without / at the end when the path in CinGG is selected from the list) :|
The normal behaviour in the file browser or terminal is to press Enter at the end of this path and get a file/directory listing.
ENTER here after typing or paste in the directory path in CinGG either quit the file menu with an error message or nothing happends. No files are listed before adding a "/" at the end of the path, which is confusing for new users.
Therefore I suggest to adjust this behaviour so that file listing arrieves after pressing ENTER at the end of the Directory path, with and without / at the end.
2) I will also suggest that the default directory listing contains all mounted and auto-mounted file systems (drives) like what is shown in the file browser or as listed in the terminal using
df -h /dev/sd*
This will make it easier to move to the correct directory. As now it is almost necessary to know the path for auto-mounted portable drives like USB3 external drives, ie.
