File Browser (from Jolla Store) did not show file information when select


File Browser from Jolla Store

  2. Change to $HOME/Pictures/Default
  3. Select file All_green.jpg


File information should be shown


Empty page with working cycle is shown (never finish).


(Please ALWAYS attach relevant data such as logs, screenshots, etc…)

Which version of File Browser are you running? You can find the version number on the settings page; swipe right two times from the directory view.

Does this happen for all files or is there any specific file/kind of files? If so, please attach the/a problematic file. Please try and select multiple files, then tap the “info” icon to see if the info page for multiple file opens correctly.

Can you run the app in the terminal and check the output for anything unusual? (Or just post the output here; remove any personal info before.)

Also: did you install any GNU tools after the upgrade to Koli? Jolla is replacing more and more GNU tools with inferior busybox drop-ins. We already had problems once because of this, as the file size calculation on the file info page relies on system utilities…

(File Browser is not affiliated with Jolla.)

Update to version harbour-file-browser-2.4.3-1.armv7hl fix my problem on Gemini PDA ;-).
Many thanks.
On Tablet the same version have an error playing mp4 videos (see Cannot play mp4 videos on Tablet).

Ah, I’m glad the issue fixed itself ;).
