Root node in file browser
Submitted by jmmalmedy on Monday, 10 December, 2012 - 17:31
Hello,

I'm using jEdit 5.0.0 on Windows XP SP3.

In the file browser (or file opening window), when I select the root node, "loading" is displayed but the file list is never refreshed.

The activity logs contains the following error report:

Is there a workaround for this trouble, please?

Unfortunately, when I disable the filter I get the same error.
I believe this bug was solved in a previous release of jEdit. It seems it has reappeared.
Thanks.

I'm on XP SP3 too. Just installed jEdit 5.0 and have no problem with roots: neither in VFS browser nor in open file dialog.

Maybe You should try to start jedit without plugins and settings: rename Your settings directory before starting jEdit.

jEdit 5 has a different location for the settings directory than jEdit 4. Are You sure that You've renamed the right directory? You can check the path via "Utilities -> Settings Directory". The first item of the popup shows the currently used settings directory.

Also, maybe it's an issue with access rights. Have You tried as admin?
