Ubuntu :: Nautilus Won't Open With Hotkeys?

Jun 11, 2011

I'm using Gnome on 10.10 and use hotkeys (shortcut keys) for opening just about everything. When I go to System>Administration>Preferences>Keyboard Shortcuts and enter a shortcut to open Nautilus (file manager) it doesn't work.

The shortcut key I have set for this (Mod4-m or Windows key+m) works fine if I replace 'nautilus' with 'thunar' or 'pcmanfm' as the command, but when I use 'nautilus', nothing. The same shortcut key works fine to open Nautilus in Xfce. If I type 'nautilus' in a terminal in Gnome up she pops. I can stick just about any other command in there and WinKey+M will work fine.

My regular setup is with Xfce where everything is dandy but I am fairly curious as to what Gnome has against Nautilus in the shortcut key menu.

Ubuntu :: Global Hotkeys On Audacious Don't Respond Unless Open Preferences, Open Settings For Global Hotkeys, Then Close Down The Settings?

Feb 19, 2010

I have two major issues, and one minor one, after I started using Ubuntu, I tried searching the forum for them, but couldn't find anything relevant to my problems.First issue: Screenshots and the cursor.This is probably a very easily fixed issue, but none-the-less, I can not figure it out.How do I NOT include the cursor in my screenshots on Ubuntu 9.10?What I do is, I press the Prt Scrn button, and my cursor is always there in the image, and I don't want that.Second is pidgin.I love it, but every time I boot it up, my friendly name is reverted back to firefoxfag.I think it has something to do with me using gmail for msn, but I'm not sure...Also, as a last very small issue, the global hotkeys on audacious don't respond unless i open preferences, open settings for global hotkeys, then close down the settings..

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Open A Terminal With App

Sep 2, 2010

I have some adlib music files I want to be able to double click from Nautilus.. the command line program that will play them is adplay.. However, if I just do that, then when I double click, the music plays, but no way to stop it!I tried "gnome-terminal adplay --output=oss" as the custom command but it doesn't seem to work.. I need it to open the terminal with adplay so i can stop the music when im done, since there's no GUI front end for this program..ALSA is the default for this app, but it skips horribly, and OSS was the only output device that works..

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Won't Open Anymore

Apr 11, 2011

Not sure exactly when it started, but when you try to click on any icon on the desktop, like Computer, or my home folder they will not open anymore. The screen act like it will but then nothing happens. I can use Dolphin to brows the file system, but I hate it.

Ubuntu :: Use Nautilus To Open Files Within Swiftfox?

May 5, 2010

where's the nautilus app that i want to use to link to the "open containing folder" option within the download menu. For some reason it's as if it's completely forgotten it. After searching for nautilus, i didn't see one single file that looked like it was the main part of nautilus to link to, there was a myriad of files to choose from and i thought it'd be better to ask here and quicker than to try each one out myself.

Ubuntu :: Gnome-Do To Open Folders In Nautilus?

Mar 12, 2011

I rely heavily on Gnome-Do to open folders in Nautilus.

This worked just fine in Ubuntu Desktop. However, in Openbox it opens folders in Chromium.

This is annoying for two reasons:

One, obviously i would like to view the selected folders in Nautilus.

And, two, i would like to set Firefox 4 as the browser of choice when opening anything via Gnome-Do. It is set as my browser of choice in Preferred Applications.

I have searched for configuration files, but see no entry i could modify, and would not know where to begin writing my own commands.

I am sure many people must use Gnome-Do in Openbox. If you are one of them, did you encounter similar issues? If so, how did you fix them?

OpenSUSE :: Cannot Open Nautilus Su?

Dec 17, 2010

When i'm trying to open Nautilus as su (or by gksu nautilus or sudo nautilus) i'm getting an enormous sermon in the terminal window, nautilus then starts never the less but crashes immediately when i'm trying to change settings Some of the errors are:(nautilus:13324): Nautilus-GDU-WARNING **: unable to query info(nautilus:13387): Eel-WARNING **: GConf-FehlerAnd then i'm reading (translating here from german) that a cause for the GConf error might be there's something missing between TCP/IP and Orbit. Out of any idea for that as for the rest as well

Ubuntu :: Enlightenment 0.17 - Long Time To Open Nautilus?

May 21, 2010

My PC is a Core2Duo7400/4gbRAM/9600GT. I install Enlightenment e17 on Ubuntu 10.04. It works perfect and runs very fast, but I have a little problem. When I open any browser (Firefox, Chrome, Opera) and a right would click -> save image takes a long time to open the box. I've noticed that happens only once, at first. if I open nautilus, it is the same, it takes quite at first, but only once. I think it is being loaded "some" of gnome and I want to load on boot.
