File Operations Indicator

Contains notifications of file management stuff like copying, moving, and deleting files. Of course it only appears when one of these is happening.

What's that app you've got on the left? Does it actually exist or is it a mockup too?

I like this a lot. instead of those annoying pop ups, it's kept in a simple manager. As long as this also worked for downloads from your browser, it would be perfect.

This is something like what the KDE Plasma Desktop does with the file operations.

this is necessary?
BassUltra's avatar
That was never the intended design of the notifications.
khotar's avatar
is essentially a notification. Would be nice to control it from there. Even gala notifications would make more sense
BassUltra's avatar
System notifications will be stored in their own indicators. But there's going to be an indicator for app notifications.

I do not know. I like the idea of ​​unifying and give more functionality to gala notifications ... you know. :D (Big Grin)  Good job xD
BassUltra's avatar
Well, there should probably be something to show the progress of a file operation.

If we implement all your indicators in beta1, the clock will get annihilated XD

Could be used as historic

I like it, it's much better than a window!
Hi BassUltra,

I love this idea. I'm always searching for the Operation-dialog (on almost every OS). When using my phone (Android) I can track the process in the notification-window. But on other OS, I need to search that damn window (it's always hiding for some reason..)

I don't think File Operations needs an indicator. 

I don't know exactly how to explain this but File Operations dialog in my opinion belongs to pantheon-files.


BassUltra's avatar
It still belongs to files, but instead of a dialog for whenever you're doing something with your files they'll be a notification and stored inside the indicator, where its more accessible.

…and presumably remains accessible should the user close pantheon-files midway through a file operation (the file operation continuing to completion in the background). If memory serves, this is how nautilus works. Does pantheon-files not already do this? I forget (it's been a while since I conducted a lengthy file operation outside of the terminal)

P.S. I'm loving this new indicator mock-ups ~BassUltra. Can these be implemented as is, with all the visual splendour (e.g. 32/48px icons, etc…), with the current state of the art?

Not with the libraries from Ubuntu I believe. Well I dunno, pretty sure the libindicator stuff is strictly menu based.
