Bug Description

Binary package hint: thunar

After renaming a folder and enter it the folder itself is marked as active (colored) but by hitting 'Enter' again the folder does not open.
Enter has no effect!
In older versions of Thunar you could enter the folder at once by hitting twice 'Enter'...

Very very curious - some times it acts!
Maybe a problem where the curser is at the end of the renaming... (or something like that)

Thanks for your response. Are you using detailed view in Thunar? If you are, this is indeed a duplicate of bug 520118. Please try to reproduce it using either icon view or compact view.

LAZA (laza74) wrote :

No, I changed of cause of this bug into ico view (CTRL+1) - so it is reproducible in every view i tried!

It happens also with F2 when I'd like to rename directorys...

Or should i look different way or later? Or is this page wrong?

Also i cant do an update on 12.04 xubuntu. Its still original version.

It's fixed in raring (the current development release), not in precise.The fix can't be backported easily. If you want to try Thunar 1.6.0 on precise, check the xubuntu-dev/xfce-4.12 ppa.
