Ubuntu :: Icon View In File Select Dialogue Box

Apr 23, 2011

Is there any way to make the file selector dialogue box in Ubuntu show icons instead of a list or detail view? I have been trying to convince people to use Ubuntu instead of windows, but this seems to be a deal breaker for most of them. When uploading pictures to the web or facebook it is very difficult to navigate pictues in the file browser window with the little bitty thumbnails beside the file name. If there is no way to do this how would I recommend this idea for Ubuntu and to whom would I submit it?

Debian :: Icon View / Thumbnails In Web Browser File Uploader

Aug 17, 2011

I regularly use an online imageboard website, and as such I am constantly uploading images. Being new to the linux OS, I was quite familar with Microsoft Windows file explorer and its adaption with file uploading. However, it would seem that GNOME follows a different method and uses a separate file browser to a file uploader Here is my file browser and the various options available (icon size, icon view, bigger thumbnails):

And here is what I get when I upload files to a website: My question is, is there a workaround or package available to allow changeable icon sizes/thumbnails in the file uploader? The picture preview is good, but really isn't enough for what I require

Fedora :: Can't Select A Program From The "System Settings" Dialogue?

Jun 1, 2011

After a new installation with Fedora Core 15 KDE is starting slow. It's now giving me a lot of errors in $HOME/.xsession-errors:

kwin(5077)/kdeui (KNotification) KNotification::slotReceivedIdError: Error while contacting notify daemon "Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken."The message repeats and repeats. Sometimes I start applications and they timeout with similar messages. To be more precise: I can't select a program from the "System settings" dialogue.

klauncher(5065)/kio (KLauncher): SlavePool: No communication with slave.
Selinux is off. Any ideas?

Ubuntu :: Drag Select From List View?

Jul 8, 2011

I have a cluttered documents folder with hundreds of html documents. and some other stuff. So I went to list view, sorted that view by clicking on the type tab, then tried to drag the cursor over all the html items to select them, and NADA. couldn't do it. Is that a feature I have to enable?
I can do icon view drag and select, and yes, I could do it from the terminal with
mv $PWD/Documents/*.html $PWD/Documents/BrokenSites
But It seems this is like a pretty basic feature which doesn't work.
So Is this something I can enable? Is it launchpad where one can recommend / vote for improvements?

Ubuntu :: No Nautilus File Dialogue Window In Ooo 3.3?

Jan 29, 2011

I just upgraded from Ooo 2.4 to Ooo 3.3, running it on Hardy. Everything seems to work fine, except for the dialogue window to open / save files.

In the previous version of Ooo I worked with, files were opened and saved by Nautilus. Now Ooo uses a different file manager which I don't like, because I can't jump quickly to my favourite maps and it's harder to navigate through my files. It has to be easy to have Nautilus again opening files, but I just can't find out how.

Ubuntu :: Cant Browse Network Shares In File Dialogue Box From A Web Browser?

Aug 10, 2010

While in a web browser I'm trying to attach a file which resides on a network location. The file dialogue doesn't allow me to browse any network location. I've mounted the volume and added locations to favorites. I've also tried entering an smb:// path. This only happens in browsers, both FFnd Chrome, some examples would be attaching a file in gmail, yousendit, etc. I can browse and work off the network normally in desktop apps.

I'm very new to *nix.

Ubuntu :: Folder View Changed To Icon?

Jul 25, 2011

When I freshly installed Kubuntu all was just fine.I was curious about how the netbook environment would look even though I am on a Desktop. So I tried it out and everything went fine.I switched back to the Desktop environment and noticed that the widget on my desktop, which normally shows the items of my desktop folder,changed into an icon I have to click first before I can see the content.I rather have it as if was when I installed Kubuntu.

Ubuntu :: View Wireless Networks Icon Has Disappeared

Jan 28, 2011

I just upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS from 9.10 and the icon that lets me view and choose wireless networks to connect to has mysteriously disappeared. I did the whole "Add to Panel" thing and added the "Network Connections" icon to my task bar, but for all the searching through that and other things like System -> Preferences -> Startup Applications, I just can't find a solution! The Network Preferences still has the list of all the wireless networks I have connected to in the past. It still connects to my home network automatically (although I did have to delete another neighboring network from the Network Preferences list so it only has one auto connection to connect to). So where in the world did my icon go? It was so great. Left click to see all local wireless networks and to connect. Right click to turn off networking or wireless.

Ubuntu :: Change Icon Size In Nautilus List View?

Mar 16, 2010

Just wondering if it's possible to change the size of icons when Nautilus is in List View. I tried playing around with gtk-icon-sizes in the gtkrc file of my theme, but there doesn't seem to be a setting for it there. I could just zoom in/out, but when I have the icons the size I want them to be, the text is too small (see attachment).

Ubuntu :: Nautilus: Manually Set Zoom Level In Icon View?

Aug 23, 2011

I've looked in gconf-editor but there is no entry for Nautilus.Can't find anything in documentation either.For certain folders I want nice big file icons but zoom increments are so large. At one point I have 3 icons across with extra space on the side. So I want to increase a little. One increase makes it so big only one icon fill fit across.Where can I find this setting and just pop in whatever zoom level I'd like?

Ubuntu :: Select An Application To Open A (specific) File?

Mar 16, 2011

I have this problem, that I want a specific .exe file to open in Mono, but all other .exe files to open in Wine.

However, the only option there is, are 'Select an application to open XXXX.exe and other files of type "DOS/Windows executable"'

but I just want to open THIS .exe file in mono, and the rest in WINE.

I have been in similar situations before, in that I opened a folder containing music with VLC, and it worked fine, but after that, it assumed that I wanted to open all folders in VLC.

I assume that there must be an option for this, and I can not see why it ain't an option by default.

(I'm using Ubuntu 10.10)

Ubuntu :: How To View A .mkv File

Apr 7, 2010

I downloaded a documentary to watch and it is in the .mkv format.this is cool because the format contains different languages and subtitles and everything, but the problem I have is some parts are in a foreign language. the subs are in the file but how do I get to them? I thought, no problem I'll just burn it to a dvd and watch it on my dvd player but can't find any way to encode this file to burn on a dvd. it's supposed to have the menus and languages and subs and everything but I can't find a program that will use it in Linux or Windows. what gives? if this is the case it really is a more than useless format, it's a waste of time to create using this format and a waste of time trying to use on the other end. I found a program that will extract the video but doesn't address getting the right language track or the subtitles.

Ubuntu :: Cannot View Flipbook File?

Running 9.04 and Firefox 3.0.18 I cannot view a catalogue with Firefox, it just keeps displaying "waiting for users.flipbook..." It must be some shockwave problem with Ubuntu and Firefox, as other people are able to view the catalogue/file , and I assume they are running Windooze. The problem is when I go to the Thrifty Link Catalogue and take the YES option.

Ubuntu :: How To View PDF File That Is RARed?

Jan 18, 2011

I have some PDF documents that are in a winrar archive (im in the process of going being fully linux and not windows dependant at all!) but i cant figure out how to view the files in linux!i installed the unrar package which lets me opent he folder.i also installed adobe reader package....

but when i open the folder i go to double click to open the document and it just says "choose a application to open with" but theres no applications in the list! so is this something that is not possible in ubuntu? i tried draggin the RARed folder to desktop so it would unrar - but it only copies the folder - not the actual pdf files inside the folder!! so is this where my excitement for ubuntu ends? will i go back to windows?
