Bug Description

I got an error popup with no title and the message:

Ups! Etwas ist schiefgegangen.

Die angeforderte Datei kann nicht gefunden werden. Bitte prüfen Sie die Schreibweise und versuchen Sie es noch einmal.

                                           OK

1) Could we please get a title for this dialog that tells users which program threw up that popup? Normal users surely don't know how to use xprop and they shouldn't need to know.

2) "The requested file could not be found". Could you please also mention the name of the requested file?

Thank you for your bug report, that doesn't seem a nautilus issue though. Could you include a screenshot of the dialog? How did you trigger it?

According to https://github.com/GNOME/nautilus/blob/8442b4e7dd45fe15ebafa4457e781e9e9c89d166/po/de.po#L4500 the original message is "Unable to find the requested file. Please check the spelling and try again."

I don't remember how I triggered the error message - maybe I copied lots of files to or from a network drive, or I was copying lots of files and deleted one of them before Nautilus could get to it.

I don't "complain" that the error happened, it's only that the error message is not helpful.

It should have a window title, so that users can know which program is talking to them. And it would also be nice if the message includes the path and filename. Nautilus just tried to copy/move/delete the file, it surely knows which file it is talking about, and that's also an information that is useful for the users.
