Fedora :: Default File Manager In Gnome 3 After Installing XFCE?

Jul 22, 2011

I recently decided to install xfce-desktop as a fallback alternative whenever Gnome 3 has problems. Now I have the Thunar file manager opening up by default even when logged into Gnome (for example when using Alt-F2 and typing in a folder name, or when plugging in an iPod.) I've searched around for days but can't find any place to set a default file manager. The Default Applications dialogue doesn't include file manager, only web browser, video etc.)

Ubuntu :: Change The Default File Manager In GNOME?

Dec 13, 2010

How can I change the default file manager in GNOME? I've got these notes but neither methods work:

Change under 'Session control' in 'Ubuntu Tweak'
Delete nautilus and type in pcmanfm or another file manager such as thunar
Quit ubuntu-tweak



gksu gedit /usr/share/applications/nautilus-folder-*handler.desktop

Then replace 'nautilus --no-desktop %U' to whatever you like. Example: pcmanfm %U

Save, logout & login

Update: This works. Why does the Ubuntu Tweak method not work though?


sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/nautilus-folder-*handler.desktop

General :: Remove Gnome Windows Manager And Install Xfce

Apr 15, 2011

Is it possible to install a different windows manager? Currently I am using an HP Netbook 210. The windows manager I am using is "gnome-shell" that comes as default with Fedora 15. However, I am wondering if I could completely remove this and install a different windows manager, such as Xfce 4.8. I am not talking about completely removing Fedora 15 and then installing Fedora 15 xfce spin. Just the window manager. How easy would it be to remove the gnome-shell windows manager and then install xfce 4.8 windows manager? Any steps to do this?

Debian :: XFCE Installing Gnome Dependencies?

Apr 1, 2011

I installed Debian 6.0.1.a on Friday, but the problem is that installing xfce installed a few packages that have nothing to do with it, like Brasero and metacity. I'm using the xfwm but why were these extra packages installed? All I installed at the time were wicd, gdebi, xorg and xfce4. Everything is working fine...but why the extra bits?

Fedora :: Changing Default File Associations In Gnome 3?

May 25, 2011

How do I change the default file associations in F15/gnome 3? My system is currently set to open .tex files with emacs. But I prefer TeXworks, and while TeXworks shows up in the "Open With" menu, it would be convenient if double-clicking on a tex file opened it in TeXworks. In gnome2, the "Open with-->Other application" option let me select the default program associated with a particular type of file, but this functionality seems to be gone in Gnome 3. Do I have to edit some config file?

Ubuntu :: Get Gnome-shell To Be My Default Windows Manager?

Nov 30, 2010

I want to make gnome shell my default window manager. I have it installed, and can get it to run from the terminal with gnome-shell --replace.
the effects aren't permanent though. I tried setting gnome-shell to be a start up application but this hasn't worked. I dont want to remove compiz or metacity before knowing if I can get gnome-shell to run by default somehow.

So, how can I get gnome-shell to be my default windows manager?

Software :: Configuration Default For GNOME Power Manager Not Correct

Oct 26, 2010

After trying to backup my hard drive on my HP Mini 210-1054TU notebook PC, On start up the users menu comes up (A little changed) and when I sign in it comes back with a window flag that say: The configuration defaults for GNOME power manager have not been installed correctly.I can booth with a stick and see my files and directory but, I am not allowed to open any. There is no access to a terminal or anything but, the users menu. It appears to take the password as, if not right, it would say so but, only comes back with same menu and window flag.Ironic, I was trying to backup my files so I would not lose them.

Fedora :: Install Just XFCE And Not Gnome Or KDE?

Aug 14, 2010

Is there a way to install just XFCE? and not Gnome or KDE? I don't mind Gnome, but I definitely don't like KDE. I have tried installing the XFCE spin to my hard drive, but when I use yum to update packages later, using the default repository, yum wants to install Gnome for some strange reason, and a bunch of other stuff I don't need. Is there a way to prevent this? because really you'd think the XFCE spin would setup yum so Gnome wouldn't be installed, wouldn't you think? I don't really mind Gnome being installed, its just that I never use it, I always use XFCE, so it seems like a waste of disk space to even install it.

well I guess the graphical boot loader uses Gnome, I don't know, but I do know yum installs a bunch of other stuff I don't use after the XFCE spin is installed to the hard drive. How do I prevent that from happening is what I'm asking?

My machine is an HP Pavilion DV6-1350US Notebook Entrainment PC

Fedora Installation :: Installing XFCE DE Only From DVD

Nov 14, 2009

During my two previous installation, I almost never try to include or exclude package during the process. I want to know if I only want to install XFCE as my only DE, how can i do it during the installation progress (I Know i can install both, or even with KDE, but I also know that i can do it later should I change my mind)?

Second question is, if I install only XFCE, what will I miss ?(no, not the gnome feature, but maybe fedora distro(gnome) specific tool or something). Last word, no I'm not asking what feature of gnome is absent in xfce nor which DE is better, so don't start it.

General :: Set Krusader As Default File Manager ?

Mar 7, 2010

I'm trying to set krusader as my default file manager. I have gone into System Settings > Default Applications > File Manager and changed Dolphin to Krusader.

When I plug in a flash card the Device Notifier pops up and I click on the device inserted. The choices I get are Digikam, Dolphin, and Do Nothing.

I click on "Dolphin" (hard coded it appears) and it looks like Krusader tries to start. I get the cursor with the bouncing krusader mini-icon and an entry in the panel, but then nothing happens. It all goes away and I'm left with a blank screen (wallpaper, actually).

I've chosen Krusader from the menu, so presumably the arguments to it are good. I have KDE 4.3.3 and krusader 2.0.0.

Ubuntu :: Set Default Applications In PCMan File Manager?

Feb 3, 2010

I have tried to make my own buntu running LXDE as the desktop environment though it is running smoothly on an old laptop it has a certain problem.

I have installed PCMan File Manager as the default file manager for the LXDE and not Thunar or Dolphin, but, I have a problem with opening files from there. The default application set to open all file types is the Terminal.

What I currently do to open the file is right click and choose "Open with.." to open the file in the appropriate application. Is there a way to set the default applications?

I have Ubuntu 9.10 from minimal CD install then got LXDE and installed the following applications aside from the applications that came with LXDE:

-OpenOffice.org suite
-Mozilla Firefox
-Google Picasa
-VLC Player

Fedora :: GNOME Apps Don't Respect XFCE Theme (F15)

May 24, 2011

Just upgraded to Fedora 15 this afternoon, and for the most part there weren't any serious issues with it (except for rpmfusion lagging on a F15 yum repo). I installed the XFCE spin, and a lot of GNOME-specific apps don't respect my GTK+ theme at all. Screenshot: [URL]... On the left are two "XFCE" apps (Mousepad and Task Manager), on the right are two GNOME apps (gedit and the NetworkManager "Connection Information" window). Is there an easy way to fix this? I have a custom Murrine theme set, but the problem is still there using the built-in themes such as Glossy too.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installing Sunflower File Manager Tgz ?

Jan 29, 2011

I d/l the Sunflower File Manager tgz file to install into Ubuntu. I already have the Build-Essential package installed. When I go to the directory I extracted the Sunflower's tgz files to and type in a shell "./configure" I get an error: "bash: ./configure: No such file or directory" Well, yes... looking into the Sunflower directory there is no such file or subfolder there. Now I admit I'm not an Ubuntu expert but IIRC I've done a few tgz installs like this and they went fine.
