Debian :: Too Many Nautilus Windows When Browsing?

Oct 23, 2010

Is there any way to configure nautilus to open new folders in the same window? Now, when I browse to a folder in my ~/ and finally reach the folder I was looking for. I have several or so nautilus windows open. Just to navigate to a specific folder in my home directory (~/). I think all those windows are a little excessive.

Ubuntu :: Browsing The Filesystem (Nautilus) And Firefox Seems Realy Sluggish Compared To The Windows 7 Counterparts

Mar 22, 2011

I can't quantify the behavior, but every time I run Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (32-bit), I get the impression that I'm using a much slower machine. All I have to compare it to is my Windows 7 64-bit install on the same machine (specs in signature), where almost everything is very snappy by comparison.

I don't have skipping audio or delayed video when watching DVDs in VLC Media Player, and Urban Terror (a 3D game) runs fine, but just general stuff like browsing the filesystem (Nautilus) and Firefox seems reaaaaallly sluggish compared to the Windows 7 counterparts.

What I'm doing at the time does not appear to affect the sluggishness. I have noticed the same impression of sloth both while copying large files, and while doing nothing in particular. That's not how it's supposed to work, is it? Does an Ubuntu install normally slow down over time? I have only been running 10.04 LTS since last October or so.

Ubuntu Networking :: Autofs And Nautilus Replacing Fstab - Browsing?

May 6, 2011

Because of NFS traffic congestion, I am trying to use autofs instead of fstab(NFS) to mount /home and /data directories on our system (from a NFS server). I have it up and running - users can log in and their /home directories work fine. However, when they need to save a file (openoffice or nautilus) they cannot see the directory tree to locate folders for saving. I have tried setting the --ghost option in auto.master, and I have tried commenting the BROWSE_MODE in /etc/default/autofs. But no luck. Using the terminal, I can go a folder and see subfolders using ls -la. They then appear in Nautilus, but later disappear. Since this is a school network, I can't expect teachers and students to use the terminal to save files. They are used to using Nautilus, with our regular NFS mounts.

General :: Browsing With Linux Much Slower Than Windows

Jan 1, 2011

I have a big archive with about 10000 documents in a usb stick. What I have noticed is that browsing of that archive with gnome is much slower with ubuntu than winXP ( dual boot , same PC ) where it is almost instant.I have disabled assistive technologies and installed Thunar file browser. It improved things but again the lag is important. Linux is in general much faster than windows, so I wonder why is it happening ?

Ubuntu Networking :: Windows Browsing To Samba 3.4 Shares Freezes Randomly

Oct 8, 2010

I have an Ubuntu Server 9.10 box running Samba 3.4.0. It has 4 shares, one of which is a CIFS connection to an XP machine, another of which is a password protected share. All the shares work fine and well. However, lately the client has called to say that "everything's hanging and freezing" when they browse the shares via Windows Explorer (approximately 30+ PCs on network, variety of XP, Vista and 7 OSes).

Not all users always experience the problem, and I remote in to test when I hear this via an XP machine, and today for the fist time I also experienced this problem - browsing literally sticks and hangs. No entries in PC's eventviewer. They are running on Netgear switches, all the same age, a couple of months old. A simple reboot and and everything's fine again for an indeterminable time, then I get another phonecall and an unhappy client on the end!

Ubuntu :: Stop Nautilus From Unfocusing Windows When Pressing On An Item In Another Windows And Dragging It To The First One

May 28, 2010

this might not seem a big issue but I'd really like to know whether it's possible to stop Nautilus from unfocusing windows when pressing on an item in another windows and draging it to the first one. For example, I want to move a file from one window to another. I click the middle mouse button on that item and drag it to the first one which looses it's focus so often it's quite irritating.

Debian :: Browsing HTML Documentation That Comes With Python Packages?

Nov 16, 2010

There seems to be a lot of documentation automatically installed on my hard drive, is there a unified browser for all of the -doc packages? Is it just the man command? What about the html documentation that comes with python packages? Is there an easy way to browse these? As it stands, all I know how to do is navigate to the directory and open the html file explicitly, it just seems like there might be an easier way. I've googled around and don't know exactly what I'm looking for.

Debian Configuration :: Browsing For Samba Network Printers In KDE?

Mar 12, 2011

I noticed that KDE does not have a way to browse for network printers like Gnome does. I installed system-config-printer to fix this(if there is a KDE route that would be nice as well). Anyway, I go to add a printer and select "Network Printer" and click "Windows Printer via SAMBA". This is where i would typically press "Browse..." but it is unclickable. This leads me to believe that I am missing a package. Essentially my question is: What are the necessary packages to access Windows printers via SAMBA with system-config-printer?

General :: Turn Turtle-speed Browsing Into Penguin-speed Browsing?

Oct 17, 2010

I've just installed Slackware 13.1 in two different laptops for first time. I have some strange internet browsing behaviour in one of the laptops. I've installed 2 internet browsers(firefox,opera) using the directions from Slackbuilds.org and there is also konqueror pre-installed. Moreover I installed Wicd network manager.

I can browse some pages e.g. ..... with firefox very slowly but NEVER facebook. I can browse almost any page, even facebook, with OPERA but very very slowly. The same goes with konqueror... Wicd shows that i am always connected with my WPA wireless network

Ubuntu :: XFCE - 20 Nautilus Windows Upon Every Startup

Jun 6, 2010

Whenever I start XFce, about 20 Nautilus windows also start up, choking the system and generally being a nuisance. I don't even use Nautilus as my file manager under XFce, and whenever I try to delete it or set it not to run on the XFce session manager, it still appears on next startup. I've tried to find where XFce stores its session information - deleting Nautilus shortcuts from ~/.config/session-state did nothing - and had no luck. I'm using Ubuntu (not xubuntu) Lucid.

Ubuntu :: Automate Opening Of Nautilus Windows?

Jul 6, 2010

Every time I start Ubuntu, to enable copying files, I open two Nautilus windows and I then have to drag those windows into the places on the desktop where I'd like them to be. It seems silly to manually do this 800 times a year! Is there any way to automate this? Would a script be able to achieve this?

Ubuntu :: Mounting Windows Share Using Nautilus

Jul 20, 2010

In Nautilus, I can find the share under Network which I want to mount. When I double-click on the desired folder, I was prompted for a username, domain and password. However, I could not log in; there was no error messages, but Nautilus kept prompting me for my username etc..It would seem like I've entered the wrong details, but I've used a Mac OS to access the share using the same wired network and I had no problems doing so.So what could be the problem? Am I missing some setting? Or is the Windows share setting denying access to Linux systems?

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Mounting Windows Share?

Aug 4, 2010

I have been looking into how to get Nautilus to emulate the windows "map network drive" feature.

I have found several howto's that use various command line utilities to try to do this, however they tend to be like trying to use a sledgehammer to fix small dents.

When I connect to a share server, Nautilus puts a directory on my desktop that only Nautilus seems to be able to see and use. I would like to be able to access this directory with non-Nautilus applications.

Ubuntu Installation :: Nautilus Windows Not Using Theme?

Nov 11, 2010

I upgraded to 10.10 from 10.04 today. All went well except Nautilus isn't displaying my theme properly. For Halloween/5th November I've used a simple customised theme with lots of orange and black including 'Human' icons for files & folders. After the upgrade, Nautilus is showing as per the attached screengrab. Although the border is right the icons aren't. No matter what pre-installed theme I use, nothing changes it.

Fedora :: Samba Shares Not Appearing In Some Nautilus Windows

Nov 23, 2010

I am in the process of migrating my small workplace to a basic spin i've created of f14. Everything is suave but some file browser windows eg: file upload in gmail, hotmail etc, does not show my samba shortcuts i've created nor even the option to browse the network in the "places" section. It shows other locally created shortcuts but no samba ones. Just to test it, even creating an ftp:// shoftcut yeilds no dice. I had a quick search through the forums and I couldn't find anything. I have a feeling this has an easy solution that my inferior brain cannot comprehend! Loving F14 on my macbook pro and so are my employees in my office! Feels much less bloated than Ubuntu IMHO.

Ubuntu Networking :: Nautilus Won't Connect To Windows Shares?

After running updates earlier today, none of my Ubuntu-based computers can connect to any Windows shares in Nautilus.Samba is running and working fine; I can access the shares via web browser using smb://hostname, so I know it's not an issue with Samba not working.Also, the two Windows-based computers can see each others' shares, including printers.

Ubuntu Networking :: Nautilus Doesn't See Shared Folders On Windows Box

Nov 24, 2010

I have a home network consisting of a Desktop running Windows 7 Ultimate and a laptop running Ubuntu 10.10. Nautilus won't allow me to open Windows shared folders from the browser by just clicking on the icons. That is to say, clicking on Network in the bookmark pane and opening Workgroup doesn't do anything. Sometimes I get a "can not mount: failed to retrieve share list from server" error, sometimes my Windows box just isn't visible at all. All my shared folders on the laptop are visible and rw accessible from the Windows desktop.

I should add that if I hit ctrl-L in Nautilus and manually enter "smb://<server-name>/share/" in the address bar, it mounts and opens the specified folder just fine. I have some of the folders already manually mounted to various locations in fstab.

I've found the issue with Games for Windows Live, and uninstalled that from the Windows computer. I'm not using firewalls on either computer for now to eliminate that as a possibility. Since the Ubuntu Laptop seems to be the one with the problem, I'll focus on that for now.

Code:
$ nc -zv 192.168.1.100 445
Connection to 192.168.1.100 445 port [tcp/microsoft-ds] succeeded!
$ nc -zv 192.168.1.100 139
Connection to 192.168.1.100 139 port [tcp/netbios-ssn] succeeded!
