Fedora :: GThumb Image Viewer Delete - Files Moved To Trash
Mar 4, 2010
When I am deleting pictures using gThumb image viewer it asks "The selected images will be moved to Trash, are you sure?" And if I press "yes" button - it moves message to ~/.Trash, can it be configured to move them into "real" trash? I have created symbolic link and it solved part of my problems, but files "restore" option is unavailable to files which were moved in to trash by this method.
I am an Ubuntu refugee. Allow me to explain what happened. I am dual booting with Windows 7 and F15 x64.
(1) I wanted to created a shortcut of my "Documents" folder in my Windows in Nautilus (2) I opened the Windows drive by double clicking the drive under Devices, and navigated to my "Documents" folder (F15 already has ntfs-3g installed so no hassles there) (3) I then dragged the folder to the sidebar to place it under the Trash icon--but for some reason, it would not let me do this, and accidentally got placed in the Trash bin. (4) problem is I can't see this folder in the Trash bin (it is not even hidden) (5) To check if the Trash bin actually captures items when we move files/folders to Trash, I tried sending a folder from my Home directory to Trash, and the folder appears in the Trash; it can even be restored to Home. (6) Only files/folders from the NTFS formatted Windows drive do not appear in the Trash folder if sent there. (7) I have Google searched this problem, but to no avail. (8) I even thought that because the drive is not mounted 'officially' I would mount it using command line:
(9) But still I can't see the folders in the Trash (10) Interestingly, when I try to unmount the Windows drive 'formally' then I get a message if I want to "empty the Trash"--I obviously chose not to--so I know there is my Windows Documents folder in there somehere.
If I move a file to the trash,I can restore it later.But if I empty the trash,I'll be warned that I cannot recover the files if I proceed.Is this really true or are there Linux applications for recovering files deleted from the trash?Uhm...are the files deleted completely and unrecoverably or are there any traces left behind?
I just can't stand knowing that there's a slight problem with my PC.I have roughly 12.5 Gigs of files, mostly movies that are multiple clones of a particular movie (which was an entirely different problem altogether) and I CANNOT DELETE THESE THINGS! There has to be a simple way to do it from terminal, problem is, I can't seem to find the trash directory in terminal.
I started using gThumb for viewing images and it's perfect except for one thing. Sometimes I have many pictures in a folder and I want to interrupt the slide show to browse the net or send an email. The problem is that after pressing F5, the slideshow reverts to the first picture in the set and I've got to find where I was up to, which can be very time consuming. Since gThumb is now at version 2.12.0 it's absolutely certain there's a setting for this but, try as I might, I can't find it.
I can't delete any files bigger than 4 Go. I got a message telling me that my trash is full and I should empty it. But there is nothing in it. Is there any thing I can do to be able to delete files over 4 Go?
i have an issue due to some high security requirements. what i want to do is to remove the files in trash folder permanently from the memory so that they cannot be recovered again. am aware of the "shred" command but i dont know if it can reach to files that are already in trash.I have found a solution but it requires to fill the whole unused memory with a file that consist of some ramdom bits and than deletes it:
I am looking for a way to permanently delete files immediately - no trash, no taking up space but a command to make a file immediately gone. I have a USB flash drive and it has a hidden .trash file on it that builds-up until I have no more room on the flash drive - all space taken up by deleted files. I need a command that bypasses the trash and immediately deletes a file for good making space available.
I hope that I'm posting this thread in the right place. This involves a very unique problem which has caused the .Trash-1000 folder for my external USB drive to become corrupted, to the point of causing massive heat problems which then causes my system to crash, i.e. become completely inoperable, forcing me to do a hard reset.
The scenario: Recently I went through all of my backup data which is what I use that external USB drive for. After finding several GB of data files, some dating back 2 - 3 years from a root server that I used to have, I went ahead and tried to delete all of those files. Well, with exception to 3 folders, containing no more than perhaps 35 files which totalled less than 8 MB in space, everything was deleted properly without a hitch. The files that couldn't be deleted prompted some strange "couldn't delete blahblahblah file due to input/output error" message. One message for each file that couldn't be deleted.
Now mind you, I can open these files, look at them, rename them, copy them, but I cannot delete them. Still being pretty wet as far as Linux is concerned, I tried numerous suggestions that I could find on the internet, all of which had to do with file permissions in one form or another. I've tried everything that made any sense and still can't delete those files.
All of the data is my own, all of the hardware is mine, and I'm the only one using this machine. I'm not attempting to do anything illegal. Then I figured, smart as I am, why don't I just assign ownership of the .Trash folder to myself via the chown -R command, followed by deleting the files afterwards. Okay, the chown command gave me no error, I assumed all was well since it's my USB drive to begin with and since it automounts during every restart anyway. I just figured that this would be something to try. BIG MISTAKE !!!
My system runs just as perfectly as before, with but one exception. NOW, when I attempt to delete those files that I couldn't delete before, I don't get an error message anymore but the CPU starts hyperventilating during the deletion process which goes on endlessly (remember, we're taking about less than 8 MB of data) ... ultimately causing the system to crash, i.e. become totally unresponsive. NOW, if I delete additional files from that USB drive and then attempt to empty the trash, the newly deleted files take substantially longer too now. Not as long as the original "bad files" but still quite long. The drive itself checks out fine and it's not a dual-boot system with Windows. Just did a virus check recently too and everything checks out in that regard as well.
Can someone tell me how to reassign whatever original values there were for that external drive .Trash folder? I think if I could restore those values to whatever they used to be before I used the chown -R command, perhaps then everything would be fine again as far as the crashing is concerned. HELP .... (Please take a look at the screenshots too)
The last screenshots shows "preparing to delete" which takes a very long time. Then it takes anywhere from 15 to 45 seconds PER FILE before that miniscule file is actually supposedly deleted. Eventually, after a few files are deleted, the system crashes. I wrote "supposedly deleted" because after a reboot the files are still there .
I edited fstab so that my Windows disk partition will be automatically mounted when I log on. However, when I delete a file from said partition, I am told that the item(s) cannot be moved to trash - I can only permanently delete files from the Windows partition. Here is how I configured in fstab: Code: /dev/sda1 /media/Vista ntfs nls=iso8859-1,umask=000 0 0 I suspect I mis-configured the options. Can anyone see an issue?
I've noticed in Gnome pretty much all applications auto-rotate images when viewing, but leave the original image data intact. This may sound silly, but when I want to post pictures on, for instance, Facebook they upload as the picture was originally taken. So, if I took a picture with the camera flipped sideways it appears upright in Nautilus and the two image viewers I have installed, but when I upload the picture it appears to be flipped on its side. Does anyone know how to disable the auto-rotate when viewing feature?
I have a separate ext4 partition which contains all my data (music, movies, etc). When I delete files from this partition it is very slow because it copies files from my data partition to the Trash folder in my home partition. How can I avoid this? Can't the trash be configured so that it uses a trash folder in each partition instead of copying files to another partition (which is slow).
Iam looking for an Image viewer that lets me delete images through an 'delete' button/option in toolbox.. Most of the image viewers uses edit menu-->delete option,but iam looking for an direct link,clicking on which deletes the image currently open in image viewer ???
Is there a stand-alone SWF viewer I can use to view downloaded SWF files on Fedora please? I know there's a browser plugin, but it does not have any controls to pause or rewind the file - it just plays the SWF file from start to end. I've tried using Mplayer, but it does not appear to support playing SWF files.
I have a Fedora 12 box with a fresh install. I use ktorrent to download something, eg a series, into my home folder. Now, as root, I move (not copy) the folder with the downloaded files to /var/www/html/bob so that when someone opens http://myserver/bob/ they see the list of folders and files I have placed there. I also chmod the whole folder to 755 and chown to root.root. The folder I have just moved there is not displayed. So to work around it (before I realised it was SELINUX) I created a new folder. Now the folder is visible. Good. So now I move the files into the new folder and delete the old one. The files are displayed ... good. But wait, there's more: you cannot access (download) the files, even though they are visible.
1. How do I VIEW what context is assigned to these files?
2. How do I correct the context so that http server can allow people to access them?
3. How do we get the SELINUX authors to consider re-labeling files when they are moved from one place to another so as not to cause this fault?
I recently tried to delete some files off of my USB drive and it was being glitchy and really slow so I pulled the drive out and put it back in so it would read normally again. I now have an "untitled folder" in my trash that can't be deleted, and the error says "no such file or directory". Unlike a lot of the other problems I've read with not being able to delete the trash files, I don't think this is a permissions problem.
I probably made a stupid mistake and went into the .Trash-1000 folder for the USB drive itself and tried to delete the files, but each time I did that it just duplicated the original folder and renamed it, and now I can't delete those files either!
I have a problem with a couple of folders in the Trash. If I click on the Trash icon, 2 foldersare there, and when I try to delete them, it just says "Failed to delete the item from the trash"
But when I go to .local/share/Trash there are no files there! Anyway, I tried using the command "sudo rm -rf .local/share/Trash", it shows no error, but the files continue when I click in the trash icon.
I would like to display a fully opaque image (e.g. PNG RGB8) on the desktop in an image viewer - but such that I can set the window (showing the image) to be, say, 50% transparent (so I could see through and compare with other windows below). It would be even better if the viewer just shows a "panel" instead of a "window" (i.e. I'd prefer just the image shown, possibly with a border - instead of a full blown window with menubar, titlebar etc).
I'm aware that in Compiz, it should be possible to run a plugin, and have any window you want transparent - but I was hoping for a solution (viewer) that would not be Compiz-specific (and even more preferred, if it is neither Gnome nor KDE specific - but I'm not sure that is possible).
Whenever I want to look at an image on the command line I use Kview, but what I want to use is the standard one you get when you click on an image file in windows mode. For me it's called visionneur d'image cos I'm using linux at my university in France.
I want to know if there is any application from which I can view/convert the JBG Images to any other format. I have installed XnView and Image Magick. XnView does no support the JBG Images and Image Magick gives error while converting the image.
I moved a few files from a directory in my home directory structure to the KDE trash folder, and then deleted them from the trash folder. About a minute later I regretted this, and now I'd like to see if there's any way to recover the files. First, are there any good utilities for restoring accidentally deleted files? If so, where would I look for these files? Does the KDE trash config file actually correspond to a physical directory somewhere, or do the files just remain hidden in their original location?
