Remote connections: Gnome Commander misreads file ownership
Submitted by Ken Taylor
I had filed this bug on bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu which was perhaps not the correct place. I am moving it here and closing the bug on launchpad.
gnome commander 22.214.171.124 running on Ubuntu 10.04 is connected by ssh to a Ubuntu 10.04 server. On the server is a file which I have examined with ls -l
-rwxr--r-- 1 moe users 20 2010-12-12 12:17 moe.txt
As shown the owner is "moe" and the group "users".
If I examine the properties of the file in gnome commander by right clicking the file name and viewing properties and then looking at the Permissions tab I am shown that the owner is "root" and the group is "root". This is not correct.
Gnome commander does show the permissions of the file correctly when viewing files on a remote server over an ssh connection.
