Gedit opens an "Unsaved document" on opening files with mouse

when I open files by double-clicking the file with mouse I always get one additional "Unsaved Document X".. which is very annoying, because I have to close tham all, and click "Close without save"... it happens in dolphin, nautilus and krusader.

when I try opening a file from terminal using "gedit filename" that does not happen.
it also does not happen if I open the files from within gedit.

any hints on how to fix this?
thank you

Re: Gedit opens an "Unsaved document" on opening files with mouse

Hi, have the same problem too.

15 mins of  troubleshooting and cussing later, best I could come up with is to use "Run in terminal" mode when opening the file.

So you see a terminal very briefly appear before gedit itself starts. Sigh.

Its an annoying bug... not entirely sure if its with gedit or kde (dolphin/konqueror/etc). I tend to think the latter.

Re: Gedit opens an "Unsaved document" on opening files with mouse

Same problem here. But your workaround doesn't work for me:

I'm using krusader with urxvt as terminal. When I activate "run in terminal", krusader throws an error when opening a text file with gedit:

"KDEinit could not launch "konsole". Could not find 'konsole' executable."

Yes, no wonder, there is no konsole installed - because I use urxvt. In the prefererences of Krusader is urxvt as terminal emulatur registered.

Any hints?

Re: Gedit opens an "Unsaved document" on opening files with mouse

It's not a bug, it's a feature!

Gedit seems to display data from stdin in a new "Unsaved document". For example:

echo "foobar" | gedit

To break the pipe opened by krusader, i replaced the command 'gedit %U' in krusader with this script:

#!/bin/bash

gedit $1 < /dev/null

Hey, I like this pipe feature big_smile. This is what I've been wishing since a  couple of years.
Thanks for the info.

man, you're a genius. thank you so much! smile

ps. perhaps a more global solution is right clicking Kmenu button -> edit applications -> find gedit there -> put "gedit $1 < /dev/null" in gedits command field -> save

That's an amazing solution!
Maybe better would be...

gedit "$1" < /dev/null

(with the quotes). That way we prevent gedit to open two files with each non-spaced name in the case that our file name had blank spaces.
(gedit foo bar -->one file for 'foo' && one file for 'bar')

Thank you,

DaviD.

Re: Gedit opens an "Unsaved document" on opening files with mouse

It worked for me in dolphin on Debian testing:
"gedit $1 < /dev/null"

When I tried gedit "$1" < /dev/null, I got reprimanded for being root.

Thanks, Hearthstone.
