So I'd like to rapidly navigate to the following in a File Open/Save dialog let's say:
"/mnt/3tb_hfs/4TB-BACKUP/Installers/Mac/Audio/DAWS/Logic 9/Logic Studio 8 or 9 - Extra Disks/"
I have this (or the same 'in single quotes' I forget) in my clipboard already and keen to just hit paste then press enter to immedately become cd into that directory.
Not only can this not happen, but I can think of no possible solution to make it happen. I've installed pcmanfm and thunar cos I hate the included File Explorer included with a great passion and furious confusion (why no path textfield?) but now I'm struck with one of the worst file dialogs I've ever seen on any Unix, SGI Irix and macOS included. Fairly sure on macOS I can try "command shift g" then paste enter, and fairly sure every linux I've used supports path paste in file dialogs.
So I wondered: is this Gnome doing this? Surely not. Gnome is huge. They wouldn't have done that. Is that why some hate gnome? Almost certainly it is. Then again, is it a customisation made by the maintainers of Zorin OS? If it is, it is a very serious bug. I'd say number 1 worst thing about the os actually, or maybe the tiny thin window borders that are a nightmare to attempt to grab for window resize at position 2. If solved the window border thing mostly, but I need to know what is the source of the non-support of path paste in file dialogs here?
PS Topics should close 9 months after last reply not 3. Don't be like that silicon valley company, which one is it, where you have to create new forum threads for half-dead ones.
