In the 'Open File' Dialog box, Is there a way to specify file/folder path directly by default?
Ideally, I would be able to copy/paste the above example in a text field, and that would be the file that the Dialog uses.
If you need a way to see this dialog, and your logged into Linux Mint, Press Ctrl+O in an application.
I just found this........
If you are in the file open dialog, press ctrl-L, this changes the address bar to the way you want it to have.
How do I make the path bar a text field by default?
In the dconf editor, I find an option to change org.gtk.Settings.FileChooser (capitalization included in original description shown in dconf editor) > location-mode from "path-bar" to "filename-entry". Unfortunately, it has no effect, and as soon as I use a program that should be using this option, it pops back to "path-bar".
The above doesn't seem to work, looks like the proper setting.
This is a GTK+ Dialog. Here is a Post that talks about replacing GTK+ dialog with another.
Here is a grunt way of setting the default through a sh script:
#!/bin/bash string="Attach File(s)" string2="Open Files" string3="Open File" while :; do while :; do exitcondition=$(wmctrl -l | grep "$string") exitcondition2=$(wmctrl -l | grep "$string2") exitcondition3=$(wmctrl -l | grep "$string3") if [ "$exitcondition" != "" ]; then whichcondition=1 break fi if [ "$exitcondition2" != "" ]; then whichcondition=2 break fi if [ "$exitcondition3" != "" ]; then whichcondition=3 break fi sleep .2 done xdotool keydown ctrl key l keyup ctrl while :; do if [ "$whichcondition" = 1 ]; then exitcondition=$(wmctrl -l | grep "$string") if [ "$exitcondition" == "" ]; then break fi fi if [ "$whichcondition" = 2 ]; then exitcondition2=$(wmctrl -l | grep "$string2") if [ "$exitcondition2" == "" ]; then break fi fi if [ "$whichcondition" = 3 ]; then exitcondition3=$(wmctrl -l | grep "$string3") if [ "$exitcondition3" == "" ]; then break fi fi sleep .2 done done
The above is an answer that works... but the problem with that is this script can trigger on a window its not suppose to.
