When I renamed files (by F2) in Krusader on Ubuntu 10.10, only the file name got highlighted for renaming, not the file extension. After I upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04, the whole file including extension is highlighted.

Before (10.10): it_crowd_subtitles.srt

After (11.04): it_crowd_subtitles.srt

It's not a big deal, but I miss the original functionality. Is there any way how to set the file highlighting so only the file name gets highlighted when renaming files in Krusader?

update: it's the same on Ubuntu 12.04


Go to Settings->Configure Crusader->Panel and uncheck Rename selects extension.

I've used krusader since 9.04 - but I've never really noticed (or paid attention) the selection behavior. I just checked, the issue may not be with krusader - but with KRename.

  • I think that issue is with Krusader, not with KRename - that's used as an external app with batch renaming, not for single renaming. (+1 anyway, because you gave me the reason to check out KRename and it's an awesome app :)) – Lukas Stejskal Jul 11 '11 at 10:08
  • oops! typo - the issue my not be with krusader -> the issue may not be with krusader ; sorry – Syborgia Alphas Jul 13 '11 at 8:44
