Can't create empty file with right click

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
nautilus (Ubuntu)
Ubuntu Desktop Bugs

Bug Description


Since the last update of nautilus (2.16.1) you can't no more create empty file with right-click>create new document>empty file. Every time, you fall to a permission error :
"you do not have permissions to write to the destination"

Was due to a distro patch, this upload fixes the issue:

" nautilus (2.16.1-0ubuntu2) edgy; urgency=low
   * debian/patches/02_umask.patch:
     - dropped for now, it creates issues on file creation (Ubuntu: #63934)

Hi, what about using the 02_umask.patch from Debian? Like in

nautilus (2.17.1-0ubuntu1) feisty; urgency=low

  * debian/patches/02_umask.patch:
    - updated version from Debian

It works fine in Debian and should not create issues for Ubuntu.

Philipp it's fixed in feisty

Sebastien, I meant as a fix for edgy

Sebastien Bacher (seb128) wrote :

The bug doesn't apply to edgy, it was created by the patch which has been dropped before edgy

That's right, but the patch was intended to fix:

It is fixed in 2.16.3:
It works in Debian experimental and is with the same patch fixed in Debian testing:

I don't find a seperate bug for that issue in Ubuntu, but the bug is present and caused by removal of the prementioned patch.

I've created a separate bug for the umask issue:
