Fedora :: Gnome 3 Open File Dialog Not Talking To Browser?

Aug 25, 2011

I suspect this is a Gnome 3 problem and not a Fedora problem, but I have no way to separate the two here. I cannot upload an image from my computer to Weebly or to Google Plus, but strangely enough, I can upload one to Picasa. The sequence of actions goes something like this:

1. Open Weebly editing interface, add a picture element, click on the element to edit/add a picture. It then gives you a choice: from your local computer, from the web, etc.

2. Click on 'from local computer' and my computer opens the Open File Dialog Window.I am guessing that is its name, it is the same window you get when opening a file in any other application, like Gedit or LibreOffice.

3. Navigate to the image I want to upload and double click on it or select 'Open'.

4. Nothing happens.

I am able to upload images from my laptop, running Linux Mint 11 with Gnome 2.

It sounds to me like the Open File Window is not passing on the necessary information to the browser. I have no idea why it works in Picasa and not in Google+ or Weebly.

I don't really expect anyone to have a solution just yet, but I wanted to mention it somewhere, and I didn't see any Gnome.org forums. On the other hand, if someone does have a solution, great.

This is by no means a knock on Gnome 3, it is fine with me and I Iike it a lot more than I thought I would.

Fedora :: Php - File Dialog - Select And Open A File

Dec 7, 2009

I have an application for loading data into MySQL table using php, through excel-Reader. php is set up on the localhost and the web-page is available from: [url]

The code of xlr2.php:

When I open the page, I get the message to choose a file with the file-dialog box and the notice as:

Notice: Undefined index: action in /var/www/html/xlr/xlr2.php on line 10

Default Action:

Choose a file to Load into MySQL:

Why so? I am selecting file from ("/home/lx/myDocuments/tech/excel/smslist.xls"), but the warning says that [failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/www/html/xlr/xlr2.php on line 33]. A different directory than I selected.

Fedora :: Alternative Gnome File Browser?

Dec 27, 2009

I asking for an alternative to nautilus. The problem I have with nautilus is that it take up too much screen real estate, the icons are too big, etc. My screen is 1280 x 1024 and I dont plan on going higher.

Any alternative should have the option of using small, smaller icons and when resized keeps the smaller size the next time the file browser window is opened.

General :: Single Click To Activate Items - Gnome - File Locate Dialog

Jan 21, 2010

I have changed the preference in the Nautilus file manager/browser to "Single click to activate items" and it works.

However, when I run an application, say Totem Movie Player, and select Movie/Open I am presented with a Nautilus like file navigation dialog. This is a common dialog to most Gnome applications - probably part of Gnome. Problem is, the dialog does not respect my "single click..." preference.

I have tested this in Ubuntu 9.10, 10.04 alpha 2 and CentOS 5.4 - I do not think it is distribution related.

Ubuntu :: Enable Breadcrumbs In The "open File" Dialog?

Aug 12, 2010

Is there a way to enable breadcrumbs in the "open file" dialog? Like, if you were to open GIMP go to file--> open--> it would give you a gui to find the file that you're looking for. I have a feeling this will be no simple task, is it an extension of nautilus? or a seperate application?

I have succesfully attached some networkdrives (Windowsshares actually) to Nautilus. It's possible to access these with Nautilus and the Open File Dialog of Open Office.

Programming :: PHP - Browser Doesn't Open The File Only To Download

Apr 12, 2010

I'm currently on LinuxMint. I'd like to start PHP scripting, but the browser doesn't want to open the file, only to download. I've red the description on Ubuntu's site how to bring apache2 and PHP together, but it simply cannot find php module. How on earth can I force Linux to act as a normal OS?

Fedora :: Check The Box For 'always Open In Browser Windows'

Sep 16, 2009

I'm running Fedora 11 64bit on an Acer Aspire 3935, dual boot with Windows Vista. I installed three days ago and the system is supposedly fully updated. While doing some routine configuring I noticed that I am unable to access the Preference window of File Management.

I want to check the box for 'always open in browser windows', but therefore I need the Preference window. When I try to access through System > Preferences > File Management, it says starting for a few seconds and then nothing. When I try to access through Computer > Edit > Preferences, the window crashes and disappears. I suppose there are other ways to change that setting, but in any case I'd like to get the general problem solved, not only the setting changed.

Fedora :: Thunderbird 3.0.4 Won't Open Browser On URL Click

Dec 21, 2009

Just in the past few days, after I installed a recent spate of updates, my Thunderbird stopped opening up URLs from within an email into a browser window.I'm using F12 and just updated to the latest Thunderbird 3.0.4 on the 9th. But things didn't get weird just then. Perhaps it was the update to Firefox on the 16th when I got 3.5.6 that did it. Firefox still opens up a window from my RSS feed reader (Liferea) just fine but Thunderbird can't open diddly unless I manually copy the link location and paste it into the browser window.

Ubuntu :: Open Application From Dialog Box?

How do I open an app from a dialog box? Eg the download db in FF in which you have options to Open or Save. I want to be able to navigate to a folder containing app folders which I can then open to find an icon to double click so as to launch an app. Much like in Windows navigating to Program files (I think it is called). How do you do this in Linux?

Fedora :: Get EPS Image Support For A Gnome Browser?

Jul 22, 2009

I am trying to figure out how to get EPS image support for a Gnome image browser, in particular Eye of Gnome (EOG) -- the default image viewer in Gnome. In Nautilus, thumbnails appear fine for EPS images, but when opening them in Eye of Gnome or gThumb, neither program can open the images. EOG says "unsupported file format", and gThumb shows a blank screen. Apparently both programs can get additional image support, but I can't seem to get it to work.

I have ghostscript updated to the latest version, and I'm using Fedora 10.

Anybody know how to do this?

Ubuntu :: Gnome Preference Dialog For Gdm User Prompt

Sep 14, 2010

I have one Ubuntu 10.04 machine that is configured this way.I want GDM to prompt the user to enter their username via a text field, and then a password, instead of displaying a list of users to choose from.One way to configure GDM's appearance is to run the following from a terminal: gksudo -u gdm dbus-launch gnome-appearance-properties.If I remember correctly, there is a different dialog to run than "gnome-appearance- properties" that allows changing whether GDM prompts for a username or displays a list. But I do not know what it is.

Fedora :: Cleaning Up - Make Epiphany Remeber Tabs After Close Browser And Open It Again?

Nov 13, 2009

I just moved to Fedora 11 from Ubuntu and I am very happy, not even thinking to go back to Ubuntu (because of gma500 driver support). How can I clean up Fedora? On Ubuntu I could go to Synaptics, remove Installed (not residetial) packages, I coud use terminal sudo autoremove, autoclean, clean. On Fedora I found out only one so far: yum clean all. Is there anything else I should now, can you share with me how you are cleaning up your Fedora? Second thing, which is not only related to Fedora, is there any chance to make Epiphany remeber tabs after I close the browser and open it again? Don't really want to use any other browser.
