Sort By Type not work on link file type

Bug #1259020 reported by Hernawan Fa'iz Abdillah on 2013-12-09
This bug affects 2 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
nautilus (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

How to Reproduce?
1. Open nautilus
2. Select a folder which contains, in my case, image and link file to image.
3. Change to list view
4. Sort by type

Image file type and Link-to-image file type should be grouped.

Files (image and link-to-image file) are sorted only by its name (as by default) and not grouped.

This is fixed by a commit upstream (I'm assuming this means it'll get into GNOME 3.30 and Ubuntu 18.10), I'll test to see if I can reproduce the bug or not in the Files Nightly Flatpak soon...
