Debian Multimedia :: Nautilus No Longer Automounting

Feb 18, 2010

I'm running a Debian squeeze system on AMD64, and with recent aptitude safe-upgrade the automounting of gnome/nautilus broke. Now if you click on a usbdrive it give this error: "Unable to mount 'volumelabel' Not Authorized".Previous it automatically mounted it, making/removing mount points as needed in /media, or you could mount by clicking on the drive icon in nautilus. (It varied a bit with package updates, but i didn't worry too much)Anyone got any ideas what could be wrong? I'm lost where to start, and systems nautilus or gnome-volume-manager use to mount things.

OpenSUSE :: CD-ROMs No Longer Automounting In 11.3

Jul 18, 2010

When I insert a CD, the system no longer offers to automount it and CDs no longer show up in the list of disks on the left side of Dolphin windows. USB keys still work properly and I can still manually mount CDs through the command line? Was there some tweak to the HAL rules that disabled CD/DVD automounting and is there any way to fix this?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nautilus No Longer Plays MP3s On Mouse-over

May 11, 2010

I just noticed that after upgrading to 10.04 Lucid Desktop, nautilus no longer plays MP3 files on mouse-over. It does recognize the file as a music file as it displays the music note icon in the comic balloon next to the music note file icon when the mouse is positioned over an MP3 file, however no sound is played.If I double-click the MP3 file, totem is invoked and plays the MP3 file just fine.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Scripts No Longer Run?

Jan 26, 2010

I am suddenly no longer able to run any Nautilus scripts. If I right click a file, select Scripts, then a specific script, nothing happens. No errors, no messages, etc. I have checked permissions, and everything appears to be OK. I am also no longer able to run anything via Alt+F2.Typing that keyboard combination does absolutely nothing.

Debian Multimedia :: Cronjob No Longer Running

Aug 4, 2015

I am running Debian 8 with the Xfce Desktop Environment.

A few weeks ago I created a cronjob which randomly changed my desktop wallpaper every two minutes. Here is that cronjob:

Code: Select all*/2 * * * * DISPLAY=:0 /home/alessandro/bin/random_wallpaper

Today, however, this cronjob stopped working. (The random_wallpaper script still works as intended.) The only changes I made to my system were

1) I modified my compton configuration settings; and
2) I installed a new display manager, SLiM.

I'm not sure why any of these changes would prevent my cronjob from running though.

Debian Multimedia :: No 'Audio' Tab In Nautilus?

Feb 11, 2011

What do I have to do (i.e. which package do I have to install) to activate the 'Audio' tab in Nautilus? With Debian Lenny, as with Fedora Goddard, it is possible to see ID3 tags when right-clicking on a audio file in Nautilus, but oddly this feature is gone with a fresh Debian Squeeze installation. However, it is still possible to view EXIF informations when right-clicking an image file.

Debian Multimedia :: Changing Mimetypes In Nautilus?

Feb 9, 2010

I'm a user of Kicad, a schematic/printed circuit design suite. Kicad uses the extension '.mod' for its component module library files. When I view these files in Nautilus, (or one of my other file managers), they are displayed with a music note, and the file type is shown as 'Amiga SoundTracker audio'. I've never had such a file on any of my computers, and I'm fairly certain I never will. However, I have lots of Kicad module files on several computers. How can I make Nautilus report the correct filetype, or at least report an unknown filetype so my PCB libraries don't look like music files?

Here's what I've tried so far. I searched my whole system for files containing the string 'Amiga SoundTracker'. The only files that came up were three XML files:, mime.xml, and x-mod.xml.In each of these files I found one line that referred to both the extension '.mod' and the phrase 'Amiga AoundTracker'. (Also, in each case the line of code was the only one in its file that referred to the extension '.mod'). I commented out only this line in each of the three files, saved, and re-booted. After re-boot I confirmed that my changes to the files had persisted, yet my file managers still report my library files as 'Amiga SoundTracker'.Can I correct these filetypes, or am I out of luck?

Debian Multimedia :: Jessie Gnome-xrandr No Longer Works

that I could run (twice in a row, it needed) to allow the scroling of the screen to see the bottom 1/4.

This no longer works.

Debian Multimedia :: Vlc No Longer Shows Image - Display Movies Again?

Apr 4, 2010

I used to have a working vlc. Then I added debian-multimedia to my sources.list and installed several other movie players (kplayer, kaffeine,). As a result, my vlc no longer works: When I run it to display a movie (any movie, I tried several) I get the sound OK, but there is no image, and the window stays small (like when playing a sound file). How do I get vlc to display movies again?

Debian Multimedia :: Kazehakase No Longer Displays Pages In Squeeze?

Jun 5, 2010

In squeeze, Kazehakase just displays a blank page, regardless of how I open it (from file manager, from terminal, from mail client or from menu and bookmark.) This problem occurs with version 0.5.8-3 (i386) and goes away with a forced downgrade to 0.5.8-2. If I open it from a terminal, the program open to a blank page, and there's no output in the terminal. Does anyone else have this problem, and does anyone have suggestions on what to look for to maybe fix this? I don't see any matching bug reports, but I'm prepared to make one.

Debian Multimedia :: File Search In Nautilus Hangs

Jun 26, 2014

As of today I can't seem to use the search feature of Nautilus (in GNOME 3). Say I open my home folder and press Ctrl-F to get the search bar. Whatever I type, as soon as I stop typing and Nautilus should start the search process, it just freezes completely. The cursor stops blinking and that's it, all I can do is run `killall nautilus` from a terminal. According to the System Monitor nothing is really using CPU.

Debian Multimedia :: Etch>Lenny, Sudo Konqueror No Longer Works?

Feb 2, 2011

Testing an upgrade Etch>Lenny 5.08, and one issue I've found is that "sudo konqueror" in a teminal no longer gives root priveleges, instead konqueror starts with limited rights. It also seems that using a .desktop shortcut, an attempt to run konqueror under any credentials other than the logged-on user fails.

Yet, 'sudo kwrite' works. Anyone met this before, or know why?

Debian Multimedia :: Nautilus - Thumbnails Blocked On Loading State

May 11, 2013

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 ?

hint0: thumbnails are displayed fine under thunar

Solved due to this post: [URL] ....

I just did:

Code: Select allln -s ~/.thumbnails ~/.cache/thumbnails

and my thumbnails are back

Debian Multimedia :: Using Basic Functions Freezes Nautilus And Desktop

Jul 10, 2015

By pressing 'properties' on a folder it freezes and I have to do killall nautilus && nautilus to get it working again. I have found no fix when googling (saying some packages that isn't installed is the problem).

It just takes a really long time to load based on the CPU usage.

Debian Multimedia :: Nautilus - How To Remove Choices From Contextual Menu

Nov 13, 2010

It's easy to find how to add more choices for the Nautilus contextual menu (with nautilus-actions or nautilus-scripts) but my problem is different: I want to remove some choices! I use Squeeze and when I right-clic on a file there is a lot of clutter in the contextual menu. I want to remove some of these choices (send the file to someone, sign this file, encrypt this file, etc).

Debian :: Automounting USB Drives Without Touching FSTAB And GNOME?

Apr 11, 2010

Before I leave with a bad taste in my mouth forever from the linux communities here, I'd like to ask one more question. I've been snooping around a bit about this issue of how to automount USB Drives, have them show on the desktop in file managers like PCManFM and not have to touch fstab at all.

How do I do this? Without touching Fstab, GNOME, any other DE. I only want openbox around.Another question I also hope to answer: How do I make shortcuts in PCManFM?

Debian Multimedia :: MPlayer No Longer Listed In Apps Menu After System Update

Aug 3, 2010

MPlayer was working just fine last night, but today I'm having problems which may be due to me performing a system update. I noticed that MPlayer was no longer listed in my Applications menu and I no longer had the option of opening videos with it. However, I now had Gnome MPlayer which must have been installed with the update because I never installed it. Whilst going through Synaptic, I found that the MPlayer GUI had been removed, so I re-installed it. However nothing happened when I attempted to open videos with it.

When I tried to use it through the terminal I got the error message:
mplayer: relocation error: mplayer: symbol codec_wav_tags, version LIBAVFORMAT_52 not defined in file with link time reference

I found a bug report on this very problem here [URL]. The conclusion was that the person filing the bug report was using a version of ffmpeg not found in Debian and that he'd need a version of MPlayer built with his version of ffmpeg libs. I'm assuming that this is also the case with me, however I'm not sure how to go about finding a build or simply building a version of MPlayer with whatever version of ffmpeg that I'm using. For reference, I'm using Squeeze.

Debian Multimedia :: What Package Provides "Extract Here" In Nautilus?

I've got file-roller, nautilus, and every nautilus extension I can find in aptitude. But I can't get the "extract here" option to appear when right-clicking on a zipped or tar.gz file. I am remembering wrong? I was sure I've seen that on a default setup, but this is my own gnome build up so i'm guessing I haven't installed or configured something correctly.

Debian Multimedia :: Nautilus SSH "Host Could Not Be Found"

May 5, 2011

I've recently switched from Linux Mint to Debian Squeeze because I wanted a more 'pure' Linux distro. I had some trouble with the built-in IPv6 support, but I've got most everything ironed out. The only problem I have now concerns SFTP-ing over the internet to my home server through Nautilus (v2.30.1). The server has a dynamic IP address so I'm using dyndns so that I can still access my server from anywhere. However, when I tell Nautilus to connect to an SSH server (and I know the information I've given Nautilus is correct), it opens an error window saying that the host could not be found.

I feel like this is just another IPv6 hostname-resolution problem which just comes with Squeeze, but I haven't found a way around it. I also get the same issue when trying to use gvfs-mount to virtually mount my server's file system through SSH...
