Thanks for the reply and screenshot. This now seems to be a
distribution/DE issue as you have exactly what is missing here: a list
of drives and partitions. It is somewhat similar to the dialog box on
6.0.1.x running under XFCE that I just looked at.

Here is the current save dialog from Mageia 7 running Enlightenment:

I will check further in Mageia, but would be curious to hear if others
see variations based on DE, etc. I should also have thought of
downloading the rpm from the DF to see how it behaves.

Thanks again for the feedback.
