Latest versions in address bar displays file:///Dir1/Dir2..... It is bit tricky to copy/paste in to terminal

Earlier versions (Freya) had just //Dir1/Dir2/.....

How to get around?

Regards, Ivars

There is an open PR about this (https://github.com/elementary/files/pull/1149) awaiting review and merging. Should be fixed in the next release.

  • Thanks, but meaning not in Hera ?

  • I meant in the next release of Files - which will be contained in a Hera software update at some point. Jan 31, 2020 at 15:19
