Improve usability of Computer:// file pane
Submitted by Yousuf Philips
Assigned to Xfce Bug Triage
computer:/// is in the limelight (bug 16472), we should improve the information that is presented to the user.
Columns: Name, Type*, Size (aka Total Size), Free Space*, Device*
columns that only appear in computer://
- Type: Will be text like 'Internal Disk', 'External Disk', 'Removable Disk', 'Cell Phone', 'Camera', 'CD Drive'
- Free Space: Displayed similar to Size, based on the 'Show file size in binary format' checkbox in settings
- Device: Device name is removed from the current file/folder name field and place in this column
Similar to the desktop, entries will have tooltips which will display some of the same info which is in the columns, primarily the total size and free space.
