Bug Description

* Impact
The nautilus view doesn't display the informations with the selected layout

* Test case
1. Change to 100% zoom
2. Go to Preferences > Icon View Captions
3. There are three captions: First, Second & Third

When selecting details for those they should reflect in the right order

* Regression potential
The code change is only the order of the widget in the preference, check that the preferency/views tab is not buggy

-------------------------------------------

In the Preferences for Nautilus, under the Views tab, the user has the option to select information to appear in the "First", "Second", and "Third" position beneath icons. However, in icon view, whatever the user selects to appear in the "First" position will appear in the second location beneath the icon. Whatever the user selects to appear in the "Second" position will appear in the third, or bottom, position. Whatever the user selects to appear in the "Third" position will appear in the first, or top, position.

I'm on

Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS
Nautilus 3.26.4-0~ubuntu18.04.2

Thanks!

Upstream Fix:
https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/nautilus/commit/86080e646a81679761e09aee4071abf68a2dac3b

Steps to reproduce:
1. Change to 100% zoom
2. Go to Preferences > Icon View Captions
3. There are three captions: First, Second & Third
I expect to see that the 1st caption is displayed just below the file/folder name, 2nd is below 1st and 3rd is below 2nd.

Current behaviour:
The order of the captions is mixed up.
The current order is this:
- File/Folder Name
- Third caption
- First caption
- Second caption

Expected behaviour:
- File/Folder Name
- First caption
- Second caption
- Third caption

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. The issue you are reporting is an upstream one and it would be nice if somebody having it could send the bug to the developers of the software by following the instructions at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Upstream/GNOME. If you have done so, please tell us the number of the upstream bug (or the link), so we can add a bugwatch that will inform us about its status. Thanks in advance.

ok, sorry for reporting it in the wrong place. I'm not a developer and am unfamiliar with these boards. Nautilus wasn't listed as a product under File a Bug there, so I was directed to file it at https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/nautilus/issues/766 .

Thanks for your help.

so the Gnome folks said they won't fix it, because the version of Gnome I'm using (3.28.2, which was distributed with Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS when I did the installation of the OS earlier this month) is too old and no longer supported. The Gnome developers said I should persuade Canonical to distribute a more current version of Gnome. Apparently, the problem can't be re-created on Gnome 3.30.2.

Thanks for the help!

How do I "nominate to Bionic"? I appreciate it's a simple fix, just don't know the process to get Canonical to patch....

Thanks,

Steps to verify in Bionic:
1. sudo apt install nautilus/bionic-proposed nautilus-data/bionic-proposed
2. In a terminal: nautilus -q
3. Check the order of icon view captions are correct now
I verify the bug is fixed in Bionic.

Could we get this verified for cosmic as well?

Paul White (paulw2u) wrote :

Had to test in a live session as I currently do not have a cosmic installation

1) Booted live session
2) Started nautilus to check bug exists
2) Enabled proposed and upgraded nautilus
3) Restarted nautilus to check captions display correctly, which they do

Verified in cosmic
