Progress bar provides no info on deletion


Description mirh 2017-12-19 14:27:09 CET
Then when it finished after whatever time it takes, window closes.

Would you care to elaborate?

Dialog I'm talking about

When you are coping/moving files the dialog has the bar properly progressing. 
When you delete stuff instead, that's everything you'll ever get.

I see. Tracking down this issue, I found the _thunar_io_jobs_unlink function, its name is misleading, but it's responsible for files deletion. I didn't see in it any indication that it updates the progress dialog.
Needs more investigation...

Fix patch

Finally I found some time to investigate this issue.
Surprisingly it's was rather easy, it seems the previous maintainers forgot a couple of lines while migrating from thunar-vfs to gio.

Fixed, it will be available in the next 1.8.x release.
Thanks for reporting.
Comment 9 mirh 2018-07-30 21:36:17 CEST
It's fixed in -git, thanks. 

Though it still misses any kind of "time estimation" (still unlikely copy)

Show numeric(%) progress in file operation dialog (Bug #14102)

Comment 12 Andre Miranda editbugs 2018-08-10 03:46:46 CEST
In order to add time estimation, we would need to use ThunarTransferJob instead of ThunarSimpleJob, too much work for little benefit. I'm more interested in optimizing the delete operation so time estimation won't be necessary.
Comment 13 mirh 2018-08-10 21:57:39 CEST
I appreciate the making it faster and percentage (the "empty space" on the bottom at least feels meaningful) things. 
But this asymmetry between copy and deletion still feels off and a missing feature. 

Besides, I mean.. Even 100/Δ%*s could be already called a day under some pov.
