[Bug 1300308] Re: "select items matching" (ctrl+s) only selects one file in list view (due to interactive_search ubuntu change)


For me, this bug would have never happened if Canonical stopped "fixing" upstream code. When upstream (here GNOME) chooses to modify its own code, Canonical should respect the developers and not patch the software to make it act like they desire. If the sofwtare isn't considered good enough by Canonical, instead of patching it, they should just switch to another piece of software, leaving the original code untouched.

  "select items matching" (ctrl+s) only selects one file in list view
  (due to interactive_search ubuntu change)

Status in Nautilus:
Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  steps to reproduce:
  1. open folder in files/nautilus which contains multiple files and/or folders
  2. type ctrl+s to bring up the "select items matching" dialog
  3. type glob pattern into text entry field which should match multiple files
  4. choose OK

  observed behavior:
   - only the first matching file is selected

  expected benavior:
   - all matching files should be selected

  This bug makes the "select items matching" feature completely
  nonfunctional, and is a regression from earlier versions of nautilus /
