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


FWIW, this bug is present in Ubuntu 15.04 beta 2.

Ctrl-S select pattern works in icon view (will select multiple files),
but not in list view (will only select one file).

If it helps, this also affects a selection once it is pasted/copied to a
destination, same pattern as selection. i.e. pasting a selection of
files in icon view mode, the selection is retained, whereas pasting in
list view, only one file remains selected.

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

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 /
