Fedora Installation :: Nautilus Opens Only Through Dropbox Folder

Aug 25, 2011

I just did a clean install and started with the software installation. After I installed dropbox, a window popped up asking me for administrator's password....I put in my user password and it said wrong password (i just now remembered not adding myself to administrator's group while creating my user...ouch!) after which a notficiation came and went too fast for me to read it properly....it said something like unable to set user /etc/x something something.....I know it sounds completely vague but that is all I could before it disappeared.

Now, nautilus won't open unless I click on the dropbox icon below in the taskbar.I guess I can manage for a while but I'm hoping to find a solution to the problem.

Debian :: Nautilus-dropbox Installation On Wheezy

Nov 9, 2014

I added the following line to my sources.list

Code: Select alldeb [URL] ..... wheezy main non-free

and then after:

Code: Select allapt-get update

I run:

Code: Select allapt-get install nautilus-dropbox

but I got stuck (console freeze) and I had to reboot hoping to sort out somehow...

After reboot I try to apt-get again but I got the following message (my traslation)

Code: Select allE: dpkg was interrupted.

It's  necessary to do "sudo dpkg --configure -a" for correcting the problem

So I went in the console again for that command and I get

Code: Select allConfigurazione di nautilus-dropbox (1.4.0-3)...

Dropbox is the easiest way to share and store your files online. [URL] ....

but nothing fruitful seems to happen; and now how to proceed?

# cd /home/abby/Desktop

# ./go2html

The script appears to run but the foreground process closes unexpectedly.

Fedora :: Beesu Nautilus Window Never Opens (VNC Via Xinetd)

Feb 23, 2011

I have setup a vnc server using the "every imagineable server" thread which setups up VPN using xinetd. I have also installed Beesu and its associated scripts so I can easily open root privileged nautilus windows.

beesu works a treat on the actual display. However whilst vnc'd into the box I get prompted for my root password (which it accepts) but a nautilus window never opens. No errors, it just doesn't open.

Fedora :: Places Menu In Gnome Opens Dolphin (KDE) Instead Of Nautilus

Feb 26, 2010

I'm having a strange problem in my gnome installation. I have about a dozen window managers installed, and just to test the new KDE 4.4 update I used kde for one day (use gnome mostly) and now the gnome places menu opens up the kde file manager dolphin instead of nautilus. How can I change it. It doesn't even appear in the edit menus item on right clicking the menu.

Fedora :: Want To Right Click Folder In Nautilus To Open Terminal To Folder

Feb 19, 2010

I basically am hoping for a line of bash script I can put into "Open With" for folders so I can get a terminal with the right path. I hate manually typing in paths to places when I am looking right at them in nautilus. "gnome-terminal" doesn't work - it just opens a terminal to ~.

Ubuntu :: Dropbox Changed Nautilus Apperance

Apr 20, 2011

I just installed Dropbox.When install completed the appearance of nautilus changed. It looks atrocious - like a 1990s Apple O/S.I guess I shall have to uninstall Dropbox. Last time I tried using it on Ubuntu a year or so ago, I binned it because it stopped working.I just tried changing the Appearnce settings. That's not made any difference. It's doesn't seem to be merely a colour theme that's changed. The actual icons are different. Everything's been squared off. Nautilus icons have lost their nice rounded edges.This might seem minor but it matters. And assuming Dropbox is the cause of this, what else is it making a mess of?

Ubuntu :: Possible To Install Dropbox With Different File Manager Than Nautilus?

May 18, 2011

I would like to use DropBox, but I really don't want Nautilus on my system.I downloaded the source to compile, thinking it would allow me to use a different file browser, but unfortunately it seems they made it dependent on Nautilus.Is there a way to compile it using a different file browser (Thunar in this case)? And if not, is there an alternative to DropBox out there that works on multiple platforms?

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Always Opens An Extra Directory?

May 22, 2010

When I open a directory from the Places menu on the Gnome panel, two Nautilus windows open up. One is the location I asked for. The other is always "/media/Data/ZZZMaint/PC/R stats pkg". I think it may be to do with the fact that some time earlier I had created a launcher in the Main Menu - called "R documentation"', with command "nautilus --no-desktop '/media/Data/ZZZMaint/PC/R stats pkg' " (the idea was to have a menu item that opened up a folder containing a set of documents I refer to). I have since disabled that menu item but the problem remains. I would very much like to stop Nautilus opening this extra window.I've tried looking through gconf-editor but haven't seen anything that looks relevant. The extra window doesn't get opened when I run Nautilus from other places, but it always happens when Nautilus is opened from the Places Menu, regardless of whether I'm opening a drive or a bookmark.

Fedora :: How To Create New Folder In Nautilus

Oct 18, 2010

In re of Fedora 13. I'm having trouble trying to figure out how to create a new folder with nautilus. Yes - I know about doing a right click in the background of the window to use the pop up menu to create a folder. BUT - ALAS - When the folder is full of files, there is no blank background space to click in so I cannot get the pop up menu to appear. Hence, I cannot create a new folder. Seems to me that the constant tinkering with Nautilus is leaving essential features missing or totally not-obvious to locate. Argh!!! Since the main menus are also missing (as compared to prior Fedora releases), I seem to be left with little choice other than to open a terminal window and do a mkdir command.

Ubuntu Security :: Encrypted Home Folder And DropBox

Mar 9, 2010

I just installed 9.10 on my laptop and selected the option for home folder encryption. I am running DropBox and placed the DropBox folder on my desktop (meaning it should be encrypted when I am logged out.) So I have two questions:
1) Shouldn't this setup cause my DropBox files on the server to be encrypted? Apparently they are not because they appear as unencrypted text using the DropBox Web interface.
2) If they were encrypted on the server (which doesn't appear to be the case right now), how would it be possible to share them with another client unless the encryption on both clients were set up identically?

Ubuntu :: Set Up A Specific Folder On Box That Can Treat As Own Personal Dropbox?

Oct 3, 2010

how difficult it would be to set up a specific folder on my box that I can treat as my own personal dropbox. That way I can access the folder and whatever is inside of it by hitting my external IP, or domain, etc. It'd also be nice to upload to that specific folder on my box too. This is speaking from externally to the LAN.

Slackware :: DropBox Folder / Clonezilla Back Up Images

Mar 18, 2011

I subscribe to DropBox and save all my important data in my /home/DropBox folder which, I presume, is living on my /home partition (/dev/sda3). I was hoping that I could create a new partition (/dev/sda4), 'move' my DropBox folder to this new partition so that when I use Clonezilla to make my back up images (/dev/sda1 & /dev/sda3) it would take much less time and space.

Fedora :: Nautilus Can't View Home Folder?

Mar 12, 2010

When I try to view ~ in nautilus, the animation in the upper right corner just spins indefinitely. It happens when I run nautilus as root too.Typing "ls -la" in the home folder will cause the term to freeze. Neither "ls -a" or "ls -l" by themselves cause it to freeze The freezing only happens in ~ to my knowledge.The freezing terminal also ONLY happens in xterm, inside gnome. Through ssh I can display the folder contents just fine, and I don't see any strange file names that might be causing an issue.I tried following advice I found, I believe on this site, to "rm -rf ~/.gvfs"I feel that I may e overwritten a fedora-specific library somewhere when trying to compile different things. I don't recall this being an issue immediately after upgrading from fc10 to fc12, though it could have conceivably gone unnoticed.

Fedora :: Home Folder Does Not Always Load In Nautilus / Sort It?

Nov 27, 2009

HiI still have a issue where nautilus occasionally wont show my home folder's contents.
(it has no images or videos or music in the home folder directly (only in sub-folders), only other folders and text files, incl dot files for settings)

I have to reboot to get it to work.
Sometimes it does it right after a reboot, a 2nd reboot then allows nautilus to see contents of the home folder.

This thread was from F12 Beta stage, now closed:
