View Full Version : Search for Files -- result, left truncated

Search for Files cuts the leftmost 2 characters identifying the folder a found item is in, if I search in Home, as by default. I just found out that I have a couple of things in the folder "oot/...".

Searching in Filesystem, however, gives full result strings, such as "/root/...". A search for "var" yielded "/" (both without quotes), which is correct.

Provided the left-truncation problem doesn't occur in newer distros, there's no need to fix anything.
