Description Nikolay Kichukov 2019-06-20 10:36:44 UTC
Under specific circumstances, xfce-base/thunar-1.6.17 may be unable to transfer files to gvfs mount, ie SMB but is able to create new directories and files. The error that is printed is: "the destination is read-only", where it is not. Copying to: '/var/run/user/1000/gvfs/smb-share:share=XXX' works, but Thunar drag and drop or copy does not.

The attached is a backported batch from Thunar 18.4 from:
https://gitlab.manjaro.org/packages/extra/xfce/thunar-gtk3/blob/270f0c86629e31245034bcdc448561e5aefec882/0001-ignore-null-value-for-destination-write-attribute.patch

which does solve the problem on xfce-base/thunar-1.6.17.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a CIFS share on Windows 10
2. In Thunar, navigate to: smb://DOMAIN;username@IP/SHARENAME
3. Attempt to copy a file and observe how Thunar fails with 'the destination is read-only'
Actual Results:  
I was not able to transfer files to the share in Thunar.

Expected Results:  
Be able to transfer files to the share as it is mounted by gvfs in read-write mode.

Apply the attached patch.

Perhaps worth applying this to the latest 1.8 ebuild too.
