Tracker: Window/Attributes - user settings do not persist for System folders

Reported by: dcatt Owned by: stippi
Priority: high Milestone: R1
Component: User Interface Version: R1/Development

Blocked By: #10094 Blocking:
Has a Patch: no Platform: All


I noticed that when making various Tracker setting changes via the Window or Attributes menu options, they do not persist, which is a regression when compared to older versions of Haiku.

Version: Walter (Revision hrev50194) x86_gcc2

Steps to Reproduce

  1. open a Tracker window and navigate to the System folder (in root)
  2. perform various user settings via the Window or Attributes menu
  3. close Tracker window
  4. re-open a Tracker window and navigate to the System folder
  5. (BUG) observe that the user settings performed earlier do not persist and return to default settings

Expected Results

I would expect that the user settings for Tracker windows would persist regardless of folders being targeted (Home, System, etc...).

Actual Results

Currently, when performing user settings for Windowd and Attribute options in Tracker for the System folder, they do not persist.

The system folders are on a read-only partition now; storing attributes on them isn't possible. So we'd either need to hack support for this into packagefs (similar to how cdda does it), or extend Tracker to handle those differently.

I would prefer to have Tracker implement this (with per user settings), as all read-only folders would benefit from it.
