File/Open produces the following nag screen:
The folder contents could not be displayed
Operation not supported
The message began several releases ago and exists with 3.6.4.
Fortunately, the operation is supported as I can select and open a file
after clicking OK.
I reported this as bug 55165. My original thinking was the problem is
distribution based. However, my current thinking is that I log in as
root with a / home directory - root:x:0:0:root/:/bin/bash. I realize
it's popular to use root root or log in as a non-root user to a non-root
home directory. However, I choose to use root at / and have done so for
years. LibreOffice only recently began presenting the message.
I can't find old releases for Linux and can't test exactly when the
message began. I'd appreciate if someone would test my theory. This
certainly not the world's biggest problem and I realize I operate
against the grain, but I don't believe the message should appear.
