Ubuntu convert for 1 year and counting and loving it more and more every day. My main PC isn't playing nice with my ipod, and of all the music software out there, I enjoy songbird the most.I dig its clean lines and iTunes-esque file management. Now of course comes the question.I connected my ipod to my computer, and it doesn't show up on Songbird. There's no add-on for ipod device support either. What gives? Is there anyway to combine my favorite MP3 player and my favorite multimedia software into one delicious sushi roll?
For about a week or two when I try to open a folder from the menu "Places" of Gnome 2.32.0 (with Fedora 14 OS) the program Rythmbox starts instead. This happens even when I try to access a connected harddrive which requires entry of a code. After entering the code again Rythmbox opens! This doesn't happen only with "Computer", "Network" and "Connect to Server" of "Places". I can't think of anything that I did (apart from using Rythmbox quite often recently) that could have caused this, so I assume that it is a bug of Gnome. Have other people encountered this problem? (I assume that it is not Fedora specific, but rather a general problem of Gnome) If so,
My latest problem: (Ubuntu 10.04)My "pictures" folder is missing from the "Places" menu. It used to be there....I didn't do anything...but now it's gone. I liked having it there- I can access that folder through "home folder" but it was nice having it where I could get to it with just one click. How can I get it back? (There is no option to edit the places menu in the "edit menus" thingie)
I'm not sure this is the correct place for this post, but since it involves a keyring, I'm making my best guess. Feel free to move it if I am in error. I have had a "tmp" directory appear under Places in the first grouping which contains "Home", "Deaktop", "Documents", etc. When I open this folder I find the attached png file.
When I look for this folder I find it is owned by root, but it appears in what should be my home directories. The only guess I have as to it's origin is that I recently formatted a USB stick as an encrypted device. I don't know if that is when it appeared or not.
Can anyone shed any light on what this folder is, and why it appears where it does? Somehow it just doesn't seem a correct placement.
I have a folder in my Home folder and called "Projects". I want to change the icon of the folder Project so the icon changed in everywhere. In "Places", Open Dialogs, Save Dialogs and Normal View in Nautilus.
What I have done: Change the icon using Right-Click -> Properties -> Basic Tab -> Clicked the current icon and changed it.
But this changed it only in Nautilus. If I added this folder to "Places" it will appear with the Default icon. The same thing if I browsed to it using Open Dialogs or Save Dialogs.
I'm keeping my documents, music, and videos etc. on a separate partition from my home directory, formatted with encrypted fat32 so that I can access it from both my windows and my ubuntu installation. So I've made the folders, transferred the files, and I selected custom icons (by right-click, properties, click on custom icon, then select the file from /usr/share/icons/Humanity/places/4.
So far so good. The problem is that the custom icons don't appear in the Places sidebar in Nautilus or the main Places menu in gnome. It just comes up as a regular folder.
See a screenshot of it here.
Does anyone have an idea/workaround so that I can use my custom icons in the Places menu as well? I have tried it with scalable icons, with no difference. I've also tried looking for a configuration file which might have the details in, but I haven't found it - I suppose this probably has something to do with how the Places menu is automatically generated.
Suddenly, my "Places --> Desktop" folder is identical to my "Places --> Home Folder". This happened by accident somehow, and the folders and files in my Home Folder "/home/rj" are displayed on my desktop, and I don't want them to be.
When I click on "Places --> Desktop" it's as if I've clicked on "Places --> Home Folder" (the "File Browser" directory opens, the location is set at "/home/rj", and the title at the top is "File Browser").
Elementary stuff for a lot of you, I'm sure, but I'm blanking on how the Desktop folder can be restored to what I'd like it to be (basically empty, except for a "Downloads" folder), and my folders and files kept off the actual desktop (except for the "Downloads" folder).
I am having this odd problem since I did a clean install of Maverick. I installed Exaile music player but after that when I click on 'Home folder' (or any subfolder in it) under 'Places' menu Exaile pops up instead.I uninstalled exaile for a while and everything worked fine but reinstalling it caused the same problem again.
how to create a additional favorite bar (dock) in Fedora 15?. The gnome 3 has one dock by default on the left pane, the number of icons that could be added are limited to 7, adding more icons reduces the icon size which makes the or favorite bar completely useless.orhow to increase the existing favorite bar height without reducing the icon size(i need two more icons to be incorportated), is it feasible?
i have a problem with th home folder button. When I click the button from the drop down ''PLACES'' menu i get this "Error File not found'' but if i go to places>computer>home folder, then it opens. If i type in ''CWD" i get this "/home/piepie''.so the home folder does exist, and if i type /home/piepie is a directory.
I installed ubuntu maverick a couple days ago, total newbie. After trying to install some software I no longer can access any of the Places folder and get an error - file not found.
I can open Computer, partitions and devices, just not the first 7 folders which i think are bookmarks. Thanks for helping, U.
Ok, I eventually solved it. Appears I had inadvertently selected another program as default folder openenr. Just opening any folder with right click - open with - folder openenr reassigned nautilus and opens Places folders ok.
I recently preformed a full update to my openSuSe 11.3 x64 + gnome install. Everything was running fine before the update however post a number of features have stopped working or have changed. I used the command zypper up to update everything. The errors I've been recieving are as follows, Wastebasket
Won't open on via Desktop or Places menu. Gives the following error "Could not display "trash:" File Is Of An Unknown Type". If I drop things on the Wastebasket the files do go to /home/USERNAME/.local/share/Trash/files but I can't Empty Wastebasket upon right click as the option is highlighted out.
Computer Icon If I try to open it from link in Places menu I get the error Nautilus cannot handle "computer" locations.. The link to it has also disappeared from the left hand panel if I have a Nautilus window open. Mounted Icons Previously I used to have 4 drives mounted;
1 network (NFS), 1 encrypted (TrueMount), 2 Windows (partitions of main machine)
Out of these only the encrypted and network drive showed on the Desktop and two Windows drives would stay mounted under /windows but have no icon on the Desktop. After the update, all these drives are on the desktop and but the only way to not have them appear on Desktop is to set Gnome config not to show any of the icons on Desktop. Although these are independent errors, they are all related to folders (at least indirectly) so I felt it was better to group them together to give a better picture of the issue.
I was trying to view a dvd on ubuntu (which works on windows) so I downloaded a few progams from the synapatic manager and software center - nothing made the dvd work but now when I go to "places" and "home folder" movie player opens and has a error message window that is at least 10 deep that says "could not open location; you might not have permission to open file." I can't get to home folder at all!Did I totally ruin Ubuntu? Is this fixable? I rebooted and that didn't help
I'm having a weird problem with GNOME. Inside a folder I have several files and when i open the folder graphically i can't see some of the files. If i use my terminal i can see those files. It's very strange!! I've rebooted my computer and the problem is still there (inside the same folder)
I had to reformat my hard drive because I was trying to run windows 7 and ubuntu 10.10 on the same drive which caused many problems. After re-installing ubuntu 10.10 alone I noticed that I no longer had access to any of the "Places" sub menus, Home folder through Ubuntu one.
Whenever I try and open any of the files that are in "Places" instead of opening them it opens my Appearance preferences instead. It was happening with everything in the Home folder to start off with (so that's desktop, documents, music, videos, pictures and downloads) and now it's spread to the icons for my windows filesystem and Computer. When I click on the windows filesystem it opens Appearance preferences but it still mounts the drive so I can access my folders by clicking on the desktop icon that appears but I'd prefer if I could access them through "Places" in my top panel.
I keep on downloading tar.gz files into my downloads folder and i cant do anything with them. what i need to do to install the file so i can use it? An example, i am trying to install Frets on Fire, and am failing bad.
I am having problems seeing files and folder names using Nautilus, but they are there as I can access them using CLI commands. Is there a way to get Nautilus to update its database or whatever it uses? I am using Nautilus 184.108.40.206. As is shown in my signature I am using F14 and Gnome 2.32.0.
I've using RedHat/Fedora for years now, and every now and then I encounter the following situation :
I open a folder and it's empty. The folder was containing files and I'm 100% sure I didn't deleted them myself. Each time the folder is deep inside the hierarchy and is among other untouched folders. Sometimes it's a folder I never use, sometimes it's a folder I use almost everyday. The missing content is not large (a few regular files).
I'm currently running F13 but I've seen this behavior before on previous versions. This is kind of scary all my work is there and my backups are also done on a a linux backup server.
I'm puzzled, I cannot see any specificities to these folders, I had no crash or cold reboot, nothing I see can explain that. Could it be related to ext3?
