I've been using Linux Ubuntu for about 2 months now, and this is an interesting error...Anyone know how to fix it?When I loaded up the past two times, I've had issues...I get the following series of message:Quote:Could not update ICEauthority file /home/atmarsden.ICEauthorityThere is a problem with the configuration server./usr/lib/libconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with status 256)Nautilus could not create the following required folders: /home/atmarsden/desktop, /home/atmarsden/nautilus.Before running Nautilus, please create these folders, or set permissions such that Nautilus can create them.Followed by a blank screen with just my background... screensavers worketh not, and Alt-F2 only seems to run terminal, no apps.Running an example app in terminal (Chrome):
I thought the standard was that rc.local was executed before GDM and Nautilus loads. For some odd reason, my Lenny desktop is loading Nautilus before it decides to execute rc.local. This is causing me some serious problems.
I have a problem with nautilus thumbnails since a few days. I checked they are indeed generated in .thumbnails, but all I got in nautilus is the "loading.." icon instead of the thumbnail, for all kind of files (pdf, image, video..) + a high cpu load.
I really don't see what to look at here, didn't found any trace of error in several logs/debug tool like gdb (and btw does nautilus have log abilities?)
I don't know which change could have triggered this (it used to work fine), maybe adding the i386 compatibilty with "dpkg --add-architecture i386" ? (I did this a few days ago in order to install acrobat reader)
Also I've been copying all of the home folder files from my previous ubuntu account to the new debian one, maybe I broke something in the process ?
I was browsing my folder with lots of images, after finished i close nautilus and i notice that my computer became slow, so i'll check it with system monitor and had found that nautilus are using almost 100mb of ram (opening 4 tabs). I'm not sure if this was normal or not because i try to reopen the same folder with pcmanfm and it only consumes less than 20mb of ram (opening 4 tabs). here's the screenshot from system monitor .
Is it possible to change my current nautilus window to have sudo capabilities,? e.g. to delete locked files. It may be lazy but if it takes a lot of navigation then it would be handy to somehow activate sudo from the open window without the terminal command (gksudo nautilus) which always begins at root.
I attempted to install Nautilus Elementary...the results were not what I expected however. First of all, it doesn't seem to even have installed correctly, but thats not the main issue...after installing, Nautilus looks like this...
I've a folder named "lynx" in my desktop . It contains ebooks - pdfs,chms etc . The problem is sometimes when i open the folder in nautilus , the folder keep loading forever and sometimes it shows two or three files and keep on loading . But at some other times , folder contents are displayed just as any other folder(i.e normal ).
I installed Drupal and there is only one site. It I access the website [url] where Drupal is installed I can easily see it functioning properly. But on internet it is not loading properly the colors etc are not visible properly.
When I try and boot my Debian computer I get the messages: Grub Loading stage1.5. Grub loading, please wait... Error 15 Is there any way of recovering from this - or is it simply a fresh install? I was attempting an upgrade from Lenny to Squeeze and despite a few hurdles it looked like it was all happening. Got the new kernel loading, and the new grub. It looked as though grub2 was working so I ran the grub-remove-legacy-support command (something like that) and now my computer won't boot grub or Linux.
I'm assuming the MBR on my harddrive is lost, however I don't know what state the partition is in. I'm guessing that maybe this has been lost as well. I tried a few tools from the Ultimate Boot CD but nothing here was able to re-install my grub or boot from any partition or even mount my file-system. I'm fearing the worst but would like it confirmed before I blow it all away with a new install.
Got a Dell GX280, and it is not seeing any usb drives. The usb keyboard works fine, the usb wireless adapter works fine, and if I run "lsusb" the thumb drive is listed, but it does show up in nautilus. I reinstalled nautilus, but it didn't help. What else do I need to do to get it to show up in nautilus so I can copy files?
In Nautilus->Edit->Preferences->Preview everything is set to Always and the size for previews is set to any files under 100Mb of size.
Still I can't see any previews. I am trying to look at the icons inside usrshareicons but all I get is a little icon that looks like piece of paper with an analog clock on it.I gotta see the images without having to open image viewer every time.
Since a couple of days back mostly all the folders and files I had on my download directory are not visible in Nautilus. Some of them are still there, but the majority it's like vanished. The folder is where everything I download with Transmission goes into. The tricky thing is that all those files are visible through the terminal, pcman file manager or konqueror, but not Nautilus, which is very annoying. I've tried reinstalling Nautilus from Synaptic, checking the 'show hidden files' option, checking and changing files and folder permissions and I also checked that there's no hidden instance of Nautilus running. I have Ubuntu 10.04 (upgraded from a 9.10) and the files are on a ext4 drive. Nautilus version is 2.30.1
I have a USB hard drive for backups using rdiff-backup (/media/backups/). I tried to do a backup last night but rdiff-backup could not find the appropriate destination directory of the drive. Sure enough a ls of the drive could not find it. Odd thing is that it is all visible in nautilus! An umount and a (re) mount did not help, even a re-boot did not help.
Ubuntu 10.04 has nautilus 2.31, which has a couple of features i don't like:space bar doesn't open multiple folders, like ENTER does. Sometimes it's more comfortable to hit the space bar instead of the enter key. I could do this in fomer versions (ubuntu 8.10 and 9.04).when i copy folders or files which are called the same as the ones in the destination folder, the prompt to replace/merge has the options accept and skip, and if i want to do the same every time the soincidence of names takes place, y have to first tick "always do the same" and then click "replace", for example. In former versions of nautilus/ubuntu (8.10, 9.04 at least) the prompt had buttons replace-replace all-skip-skip all, so a single click could do the job.How can i go back to those versions of nautilus, while still using ubuntu 10.04?
I accidentially replaced default file manager Nautilus with Gnome Commander and now when browsing other hard drives or devices throught Places menu it opens in Gnome Commander. How can I revert to Nautilus?
I had been playing around with various Python scripts in order to add certain columns to Nautilus, in particular bitrate, length, artist and genre for information on mp3 files. Well, I got greedy and installed something I shouldn't have and now I have massive duplicate columns available, and checking them to be visible has no effect at all. I have lost all the information that would populate the aforementioned columns.
I went to the Configuration Editor, went to apps>nautilus>list view>default visible columns and deleted the extraneous columns. I also disabled all the pythons scripts I put in ~/.nautilus/python-extensions. The extra columns never go away, and, if checked, never make visible the named information. Here is a screencap.

Apparently, I am suffering from this bug:
What I find particularly strange is there has been no update recently related to the U1 client. I am guessing this may be a server issue, but it seems that only a few of us are affected currently Until this is resolved, I can no longer use ubuntu one. Pretty much a show-stopper as I rely on it regularly.
