Fedora :: Unable To Remove Folder From Desktop?

Mar 6, 2011

I was recently learning to compile software from source code(tar.gz) files,he instructions told me to extract the files to the desktop. After I did this, I now see the folder on the desktop with the files in it, and I am unable to delete the folder. The error message says "there was an error deleting copying". Error removing file:Permission denied. Has anyone ever experienced this? I've run out of ideas as to how to get rid of it

Fedora :: F14 Desktop Folder Gone / Get Content Back?

Apr 2, 2011

I was dragging and dropping content from a folder onto the user desktop folder when suddenly instead of the packed Desktop Folder I got the Home folder with the few normal files that were in it AND one file called Desktop.

(actually, the file name was "Escritorio" and it was a PDF file, and in $HOME/.config/ the file user-dirs.dirs was changed to say XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/" instead of XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/Escritorio")

I've searched around but only found how to recreate a folder calles "Desktop" (or "Escritorio") and have it act like such, but not how to eventually recover the original "Desktop" folder AND ALL ITS CONTENTS (quite a lot!)

Is there any way to get the content back?

Fedora is 64bit Fedora 14
Gnome is 2.32
Nautilus is 2.32.2.1

OpenSUSE :: Folder View Appl. Showing Desktop Folder - How To Add Icons

Jan 21, 2010

I have the Folder View applet on the Desktop viewing the Desktop Folder "~/Desktop"

Some shortcuts are outdated because of new installation of opensuse 11.2...

How can I add icons there in?

I can add icons to the Desktop and Taskbar but no in this Folder View on the Desktop (BTW: Is this Panel called "Folder View applet"?)

If I try to move a icon from Desktop to this Panel it is not moved in this panel it is placed behind this Panel...

And how can I get more than one of this panels for example one displays the Desktop folder other the home dir ...

Ubuntu :: Create Folder',and Results In An Empty Folder Being Created On Desktop?

Oct 29, 2010

I have this nasty habit of refreshing desktop in a quick succession by right-clicking and selecting 'Refresh',on my XP system at office.(And,iam sure most of us do the same).With Ubuntu,if a right-click on desktop slowly and select 'align by...',it simulates the XP refresh action as explained above.But,if i perform the same action rapidly,it takes this first option from right-click context menu,which is 'Create Folder',and results in an empty folder being created on desktop.I tried double right-clicking and again it created an empty folder.Is there any workaround to handle this.I mean:Can the right-click context menu items be shuffled so that the 'Create Folder' option is moved from 1st place

Ubuntu :: Desktop Keeps Crashing When Renaming Folder Under Folder View Plasmoid?

Jun 17, 2011

Running kubuntu 11.04x64 w/ xrender and folder-view plasmoid:

I cannot view "open with" for directories on the desktop (but it is visible w/in dolphin file structure) and whenever I try to rename folders on the desktop it crashes and restarts (but the rename is successful and no open windows crash).

This glitch is reproducible under OpenGL and Xrender; had to switch over to xrender after a recent system update that seems to slow my computer to a crawl after a little time and kept it cause it seems much smoother and crisper.

Is there any way to fix these issues or is there an alternative to the folder-view plasmoid to view a folder content on the desktop that is more stable?

Fedora :: Unable To Recover Folder From Trash Bin / Fix It?

Apr 19, 2011

I switched from OpenSUSE to Fedora and I moved a folder full of coursework and a backup of that folder (which was pretty outdated) onto a usb. Once I had installed Fedora, I first deleted the outdated backup, intending to make another fresh one but then I realised that somehow the original files hadn't copied from OpenSUSE onto the USB.

The situation I'm in now is that I only have the outdated backup in the trash can so I need that back but I get the following error message when I try and recover it:

Quote:

Error while copying to "desktop". There was an error getting information about the destination.

And then when I select the "Show more details" drop-down:

Quote:

Error stating file '/media/5E7A-32A1/desktop': No such file or directory

Fedora Networking :: 12 - Unable To Use Add / Remove Software

May 28, 2010

I've recently installed Fedora 12 from the Live CD as a new virtual machine using VMware. The issue I'm having is that when I go into the "Add/Remove Software" package manager, everything is blank. I'm guessing this is probably a proxy issue as I do connect to the internet via a proxy server.

General :: Unable To Share Folder In Suse 10.0 / Folder Defaults To Not Shared

May 13, 2010

I wanted to enable file sharing in for one of my folders under the home directory. I noticed that the 'not shared' and 'shared' always defaulted back to 'not shared'. And now I see what looks like an electrical plug icon symbol over the folder icon symbol like I might see used for some of the root folders. What does the new icon indicate about the folder attributes and why does file sharing default to 'not shared'?

Fedora Networking :: Unable To Mount Windows Server Folder

Apr 29, 2009

I use F10 at home and while away from work on my laptop. Recently I could get the VPN sorted out ( I can now connect to the vpn (ppp0) server at work from home or anywhere else). I am trying to mount a windows folder that is on the work server on my F10 box at home through the VPN connection that is first established.What I know about the windws server

servername
sharename
username
password

When I try this

sudo mount -t cifs //pxxxx/home/abcd /mnt/dir/ -o username=abcd,password=xxxx

I get this error

mount error: could not resolve address for pxxxx: Name or service not known
No ip address specified and hostname not found

I think the VPN connection is established successfully. I have a ppp0 connection under ifconfig with an IP address after vpn connection is established.In windows I just map the network drive (\pxxxxhome) username=abcd, password=xxxx and mount the folder as "abcd on pxxxxhome"
