Upon a fresh installation of Ubuntu Natty, I have noticed only a couple of my nautilus-actions are actually showing up in the context menu. On further review, I noticed Nautilus-actions has changed a lot, and I cannot seem to figure out why most of my actions are not showing up. It seems no matter what I change, they will not show up. Some of the ones I cannot seem to get up are 'Wipe' commands and several of my homemade ones that worked flawlessly in past Ubuntu versions, such as Chown, Make Executable, Renamer, among others. Oddly, two of them work just fine, Search Here and Open Root Nautilus. I am not sure why these work, while the others do not, other than they are not used by selecting item(s)/folders. Also, I noticed there is a change with the parameters, in which now all of them use %F instead of %M. Does anybody know why that is, and/or does it really matter. FYI, I am using the classic version, not Unity as my desktop.
I have a partition that I mount as /data on all of my distros of my multi-boot machine. I am having a bear of a time figuring the right way to address permissions/groups so that any distro can use it (or any removable drive).I tried (in linuxmint) making a group '/data' and assigning the users on my machine to that group, then changing the permissions/groups of the files and folders in that mount as belonging to the /data group, then booted to fedora 15, made the /data group, added the users to that group, I'm not sure that this way will work (it doesn't seem to) or if it's the best way to proceed. some of the things I don't get are:what is the '1000' user and group?is the user/group info on (in or somehow attached) the mount itself?does this seem like a good way to do this?is there on way to 'apply permissions to enclosed files' recursively through the nautilus context menu?
In Windows Explorer, if a file is focused, press Menu Key on keyboard, context menu will show on top of the file. But in Nautilus, the same action shows context menu where the mouse cursor is. That's a bit annoying. Is there anyway to make it work like Windows?
I've been using Ubuntu for quite some time now and my context menu has become cluttered with a lot of applications that I don't use or menu items that I have never used - and most likely won't use.
So I want to remove them, or at least disable them.
So, after searching Google (irrelevant or old results) so then I tried Google with [URL] but nobody has had their problem solved.
Edit: I've looked through GConf-Editor, found nothing, and have looked through the directories .Cache/.Config/.Local/.Nautilus in my home diretory and nothing came up of relevance in the first three and the .Nautilus directory was empty.
I uninstalled xmms player quite a long time ago. I think when I had hardy heron. Currently I'm on 10.04. When I right click a .mp3 file I still have the option to play with xmms player showing up. Even if I choose an "other application" the xmms player option remains stickied to the top.Does anyone know how I can remove this entry? I did a lot of searching but couldn't find a solution.
I have installed Fedora 12 (Constantine) in my laptop. I updated gnome packages in my system and after the update I found that the menu bar in nautilus is missing. I tried a lot to restore the default appreance it could not be done. Please help me to restore my folder view settings especially the menu bar in nautilus.
I switched from 11.2 to 11.4 yesterday. I noticed that the Appearance dialog has only three tabs instead of four tabs. The last tab "Interfaces" does not exist, in where I can select "Show Icon in Context Menu". But I do not know, how to show icons in context menu.
There's any way to add the "Extract to <folder>" to context menu in Nautilus and/or Gnome Commander where <folder> is de name of the archive that I want to extract?Other question: how can I associate .001 extensions to Peazip with the same "Extract to <folder>" right-clicking menu?

I have special permission from the management to stimulate my colleagues to learn Linux - er, Fedora. So I'm dual booting a few machines for them to toy around with. However, all of the popular things of course have to work easily, otherwise there's no convincing them..Almost everything has been arranged, except for an easy way to bulk-print pictures onto A4. I have probably missed it but google doesn't help, this forum doesn't give me too much that I can find.
I did find gpp (Gnome Photo Print) but that is still too complicated. I need to be able to either get it directly from the nautilus context menu, or set the gui so that this app is automatically used when viewing images in a memory card. And then it has to be easy to print.
I'm a Fedora user, and recently I switched from KDE to Gnome. Since then I'm experiencing a nerve-wracking problem when I use the right-click. Almost every time when I right-click the result is the automatic selection of the option in the context menu which is at the same level as the cursor. This happens more than 50% of the cases. Is that normal in Gnome or am I the only one that experiences this kind of problem?
Looking for a rename utility that I can start from the context menu. Would like to be able to highlight a bunch of dig-cam pix on my desktop, right click to the context menu and open a bunch rename utility.
I like to create files using the GUI context menu. I right click on windows and one of the options in the menu is "new" and then I have many options such as Word 2007 file etc. I create a lot of files and so this method is more convenient by far for me than opening the application, saving and then navigating to where I want the file to go. Because when I want to create the file, I will probably be in the directory in which I want to create the file, the process takes only a few gestures to complete which is not the case if I have to go through the file system in the "save as" window. Is it possible to have this functionality in Ubuntu?
I don't know how it came and how to disable it but here is something that will turn me crazy:with Lucid, when I select an URL (or a part of it), an automatic context (popup) menu appears and shows me different options like "Open in Firefox", "Send URL", "Open in Mozilla" and "Open in Opera".I really would like to disable it because I always have to press "Esc" to be able to do a copy-paste.We are a few on the french forum to have the same problem and we cannot find a solution, so I try the "international" forum.
I just upgraded from ubuntu 10.04 to 10.10 and noticed that right click stopped working on some applications.
Usually, there are two ways to select items on the right click context menu: a) press and release right click, hover over option, press and release again b) press and hold right click, hover over option, release right click
I lost option a). No matter how fast I press and release the right click button, it will select the first option on the menu as soon as I release it. So for example, the first option on the context menu on the chrome browser is "back". So if I try to open the context menu it will just go back. Because it selects the back option as soon as I release the right mouse button.
So far I only noticed this on Chrome and Eclipse. Firefox and the other default ubuntu apps are working properly.
Googling it, I found some other people with this issue, but no solution. Any idea what this could be about and how to fix it?
how could i change the context menu of any program?i want to create special context menu for each program that each one has its own context menu that doesn't look like the other program.how could i do that?
In gnome 2 we had the option in gconf-editor to use a compact layout when displaying icons in nautilus, it was essential to browse pictures, otherwise the thumbnails are spaced way too wide for nothing and you can't get enough of them in a screen.the option is not there in dconf, can we set it somewhere else?
So I made two shell scripts under /usr/bin/ (would've preferred under ~/bin, but I couldn't get it to add that folder to the path, even when appending it to ~/.bash_profile), named 'Wine' and 'Wine64', each containing something like this:
So basically it's a script to automate the switching between wine architectures and to set the proper prefix path. While this works fine when launching an application from a terminal, say:
Code: Select all$ Wine64 some-windows64-app.exe
I can't get it to work when right clicking the said executable, and opening it with Wine64 (which I previously added it as a choice in the context menu) So is there something I'm doing wrong, or is this not possible at all? In the latter case, is there any way to achieve this through other means?
I'm doing it this way as I'm installing this system for a relative that isn't that knowledgeable with Linux (so I would like to avoid instructing them how to launch commands in a terminal), but would still like to offer him a Windows compatibility layer for the odd Windows-only app that he might need.
my context menu in dolphin/konquerer is very slow -- 2-3 seconds to pop up.I have a dual core 1.4ghz pc, so pc speed is not an issue.My cpu pins during the delay that the context menu takes to pop up. I ran valgrind --tool=callgrind dolphin and attached the two files that it produced.I viewed them in kcachegrind but i dont know what to make of the data.
I am using Kubuntu 10.04 for a couple of days now and so far, I am very happy with it. But there is one thing I cannot figure out why it does not work:I have downloaded new services for konqueror's/dolphin's context menu. This is quite easy because there is an option in the settings menu. Both programs (konqueror and dolphin) show me in their settings the services I downloaded as installed. But in the context menus there are no new services.
