Usually, when I drag a link to the terminal, the link target is pasted in the terminal. However, when I just dragged a FTP link from Chromium to my Terminal (first result on Google for "ftp pdf", ftp://ftp.ipswitch.com/ipswitch/manuals/ftpserv.pdf), a file download was immediately initiated (I knew because a desktop notification appeared).
I tried to locate the downloaded file using
find ~ -iname '*.pdf' (also in
/tmp), but I didn't find any traces. When I tried to reproduce the problem by dragging the ftp-URL again, the download completed much faster than before, from which I infer that the file is still cached, somewhere.
So, my question are:
- Why is the ftp resource being downloaded after I drag the link to my Terminal?
(instead of being pasted as text, like http-URLs)
- Where can I find the downloaded file? (I want to delete it)
