Summary0008724: Scribus can't access External Drives on Mac OS X
DescriptionMartin reported to the mailing list (and I reproduce here):

The /Volumes folder has the "invisible" flag set that prevents Finder from showing it in open/save dialogs. Scribus does not use Finder widgets, but it uses a Qt file open/save widget that, in its aqua form, apparently respects the "invisible" flag. In the X11 version of Scribus, this does not happen; you will always have access to the drives mounted in /Volumes.

I don't know if there is a configuration option (either for Scribus or for Qt) to switch this behavior off, but it seems desirable.
Additional Informationworkaround:


 sudo SetFile -a v /Volumes

Then you will see the directory "/Volumes" on the top level of the file hierarchy, and in this directory you will find your external drives.

If you want to go back to the original situation, run

 sudo SetFile -a V /Volumes
TagsNo tags attached.

Duplicate of issue 0003096. The issue is directly related to qt file dialog. Nothing can be done on our side.

adding a workaround:

<geekartiste> I did just find that additional volumes are available in the folder settings in Preferences. By setting the default folder to the Projects on the other volume, quitting Scribus and restarting, I can get to the default Documents folder in the File> Open dialog. Then Scribus can access every attached volume. For some reason the /Volumes folder is not listed by default, although all others are.

maybe, this could even lead to a solution...
