mint 6 opens always the wrong folder if i click on a other

Postby vandread on Sat Feb 14, 2009 8:04 am

hey,

i intalled mint 6 yesterday on my desktop-pc, i have used mint 5 on my notebook... so i decided to install the new mint 6 on my desktop-pc...

but now i found a little problem, let me explain it to you:

when i am browsing the folders, for example in my system harddisk, if there are a lot of folders i always use the search funktion by typing the first letter... than it jumps to the first folder which starts with this letter and it marks the folder too!
(i hope you understand me, here a screenshot: http://s3b.directupload.net/images/090214/du98inad.png)

but now if i click with the mouse on the marked folder or any other folder it does not mark the folder where i am clicking (like on my notebook with mint 5) it opens always the first folder on the top which you can see...
(here the screenshont when i click after searching: http://s10b.directupload.net/images/090214/tv98r6hu.png)

can somebody say me where the problem is?
i mean thats not normal...
thx!

Sorry - I don't understand what happens - just tested and the folder you click on is opened - did you expect the folder your search has marked to open regardless of where you click?

hm than let me explain you again...
on the pictures is only a example the problem is on all folders...

okay again:
for example i am now in my home folder and it looks like this: http://s3b.directupload.net/images/090216/sfwnr4xc.png

plz notice that nothing is marked...
now if i want to move to the folders which start with "V" im clicking on my keyboard the key "V" and nautilus marks the folder Videos looks like this: http://s10b.directupload.net/images/090216/k5ajm2uu.png

now the problem...
if i want to open now the folder by clicking on it (double klick) nautilus opens the submenu of the first folder in the window... looks like this: http://s4b.directupload.net/images/090216/nb7qs5ff.png

that happens all the time it doesnt matter where i click nautilus opens all the time the first folder ^^

(hope you understand now, if not im will make a video xD)

Ok - I get it - no matter which folder you mark its the top (first) folder that opens when you double click
Does it matter if you mark the folder with the mouse or is it just if you press a key that it happens?
This does not make sense to me and I don't recognise it....

When you type the letter, have you just tried hitting the enter key and see if the folder opens up? Just because it makes no sense for you to use your keyboard to mark the folder, then use your mouse to open it.

Either use your mouse exclusively to open your folders, or use the keyboard. Type the "V" for example for your "Video" folder, then just hit the "Enter" key. It just seems rather unproductive to me to go back and forth.

@Husse
it happens always if i type a letter to search a folder and try than to open it by clicking not only dobble with one click it happens too!
and it happens if i click anywhere...

@dlkreations
if i press enter after searching with the letter it opens the "right" folder... it opens the marked one...
sure it make sence... because it im using this to jump to the felders with the right begining letter and than open the folder i want with my mouse

hm i mean on my notebook it just works fine :S
