Feature #11916: Update doc for 3.0
Adjust to Nautilus not showing the full path of folders in Stretch
In the page regarding copying of the persistent volume we say: "In the file browser, navigate to /media/amnesia/TailsData to open the old persistent volume."
It's a bit difficult to navigate to that location without having an address bar to copy the location into and Nautilus is just showing a "relative" path in the address bar, e.g. when accessing an external volume (e.g. it's just "TailsData" in this particular example).
I'm proposing to simplify the documentation to just click on the volume "TailsData" in the left panel of Nautilus for accessing it directly. (
doc/encryption_and_privacy/secure_deletion already describes it in a way similar to this)
For locations relatively to
/live/persistence/TailsData_unlocked) I propose to describe something similar to "Choose Places -> Computer -> /live/persistence/TailsData_unlocked".

This ticket has no assignee and the doc update is unclear to me (sajolida said today that he doesn't know if he can providing a timeline by the end of April), so I'm removing bonus stuff from the 3.0 milestone: please focus on the bits we really have to update.
#3 Updated by sajolida over 2 years ago
- Subject changed from Simplify description of accessing ext. volumes with Nautilus in Stretch to Adjust to Nautilus not showing the full path of folders in Stretch
- Assignee set to cbrownstein
Renaming the ticket to be more generic: this affects whenever we are telling people to navigate to a particular folder.
Another place that will be affected is #12109 (once I merge it). But then we need to be root, so instead of instructing to choose Places → Computer → /live/persistence/TailsData_unlocked from the top bar, what about instructing to choose Other Locations → Computer from Nautilus.
Tentatively assigning to cbrownstrein since he worked on #12109. cbrownstein: do you want to work on this one? You should do the work on a branch based on feature/stretch since this is for 3.0 only.
#4 Updated by cbrownstein over 2 years ago
- Status changed from Confirmed to In Progress
- Assignee changed from cbrownstein to sajolida
- QA Check set to Ready for QA
I've rewritten the instructions in
doc/first_steps/persistence/copy.mdwn per sajolida's suggestion.
I'll hold off on
doc/first_steps/persistence/configure.mdwn until #12109 is merged.
