#879 copy and paste missing, only works with drag and drop


Hello @lstranger , here me again.. now with a clear issue... first of all thanks for help able to build pcmanfm and libfm with gtk 2.18 and glib 2.24 (do u remenber?)

i review the #720 report, but now using parcellite 0.9.4 from debian oldstable pcmanfm 0.9.7 works well, but pcmanfm 1.2.0 not! perhaps sneding signals to ignore copy&paste operations will to the trik!

1) install parcellite 0.9.X from debian an pcmanfm 0.9.7 & libfm
2) copy a file in local home (one partition for system+home and one for swap)
3) make new tab (or whatever, stay in same tab)
4) right click
5) paste operation exist and sussesfully paste are done
now with SAME PARCELLITE but upgrading pcmanfm&libfm
6) ppurge and remove all pcmanfm and libfm instalation and files
7) install libfm 1.2.0 with all (including gio extras for glib < 2.26)
8) install pcmanfm 1.2.0 and remove older config files from home
9) open pcmanfm an repeat same operation (copy a file, no remote mounts)
10) try to right click and perform paste
11) paste operation are missing from menu!!!

gtk 2.20 and glib 2.24 with all need gio modules
libfm 1.20 with all modules and gio compiled modules
pcmanfm with udisk enabled
gvfs with all backend (but thi are irrelevant)
no mounted fs (only system default) and no remote mounted fs
parcellite are same that WORKS with pcmanfm 0.9.7

i make many test and using cases with pcmanfm and linfm 1.2.0, great! very powerfully an good! i see the #720 bug before send this issue, due perform many test

pcmanfm and libfm are great both, very thanks again for be able to work under glib 2.24 an gtk+ 2.18!!!


  • i remember that some code to detect invalid copy&paste operations was added to 1.X brand, due i really think this are a bug, maybe are possible to able disable that feature in configure script or a patch that help to do that?

    i test again, pcmanfm 0.9.7 and parcellite 0.9.4 works toggeter with copy&paste operations, but pcmanfm 1.2.0&libfm 1.2.0 with parcellite 0.9.4 not rocks! X-(

    i not great with the C style code of GTK+2, specially when are too many pointers and references jjeje

  • hey, i recently tested, recent verwsion of parcellite fixed that! with 1.1.7 pcmanfm and libfm works like a charm...

    feel free to close this bug as duplicate or invalid. see u and thanks
