I came here because of Francesco Sensi script to fix the copy buffer on nautilus. It doesn’t work for me. Do you have any idea on what should I do to make it work?
Here is the direct link: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/nautilus/issues/634#note_541313
I haven’t really looked at that script yet, but in case you’re not aware, you can right click in gnome-terminal and “Paste as Filenames”, or drag-and-drop from nautilus to gnome-terminal.
If you’re using Wayland, the script needs to be run with
GDK_BACKEND=x11. Wayland doesn’t let you snoop on the clipboard. Also, it needs to be run with python3, not python (depending on your platform).
I improved it a bit:
#!/usr/bin/python3 import gi gi.require_version('Gtk', '3.0') from gi.repository import Gtk, Gdk, Gio import shlex def quoted_path(uri): path = Gio.File.new_for_uri(uri).get_path() if path is not None: path = shlex.quote(path) return path def callback(clip, event): lines = clip.wait_for_text().strip().split('\n') if len(lines) >= 3 and lines == 'x-special/nautilus-clipboard': paths = [p for p in (quoted_path(u) for u in lines[2:]) if p is not None] clip.set_text(' '.join(paths), -1) Gtk.Clipboard.get(Gdk.SELECTION_CLIPBOARD).connect('owner-change', callback) Gtk.main()
This version supports multiple files, non-
file: uris, and filenames with spaces and shell metacharacters.
Now we are talking. This is working for me, thanks for the corrections.
@Chrisaw, when the script is running I can’t Ctrl+c, Ctrl+v to copy and paste a file on nautilus anymore. Do you know a fix for that?
This workaround stops working for me. Purism maintains a stable copy Nautilus 3.26 which has everything. I am using it now.
