Fedora :: Missing Use Compact Layout In Nautilus Icon View?
Jul 10, 2011
In gnome 2 we had the option in gconf-editor to use a compact layout when displaying icons in nautilus, it was essential to browse pictures, otherwise the thumbnails are spaced way too wide for nothing and you can't get enough of them in a screen.the option is not there in dconf, can we set it somewhere else?
Just wondering if it's possible to change the size of icons when Nautilus is in List View. I tried playing around with gtk-icon-sizes in the gtkrc file of my theme, but there doesn't seem to be a setting for it there. I could just zoom in/out, but when I have the icons the size I want them to be, the text is too small (see attachment).
I've looked in gconf-editor but there is no entry for Nautilus.Can't find anything in documentation either.For certain folders I want nice big file icons but zoom increments are so large. At one point I have 3 icons across with extra space on the side. So I want to increase a little. One increase makes it so big only one icon fill fit across.Where can I find this setting and just pop in whatever zoom level I'd like?
I am having a small issue with how Ubuntu displays my files. In Windows 7, I typically view my files in the "list format." In Windows 7, when in that format, it displays the entire file name of my files. In Ubuntu, "compact view" is the same format as "list" from Windows 7. The only difference is, it does not show the entire filename. Kansas - Carry on my Wayward son.mp3 for example, is viewed as Kansas - Carry on m... This is really not a big deal. And I get it, compact means compact. I can just use Ubuntu's "List View" to see the entire file names of files. But that's not my preferred way of viewing files. I was wondering if there was a way to make "compact view" show the entire file of my files.
I just got an 8 gig compact flash card for my SLR camera. When I open the card (using a card reader) in Nautilus (Ubuntu 10.04) it will only list about 1024 files and not the rest. It does not provide any warnings so one could easily think all files have been copied when in fact they haven't. This could be a real issue if the user does not notice. Using another app called rapid photo downloader in Ubuntu does not seem to list/preview all the files either. I dual boot to win xp 32 bit and I can see all the photos and can copy them to the harddrive without any issues so I don't think it is hardware related. How to get Nautilus to allow the copy of all files?
I'm searching for a tool that can show current keyboard layout in GNOME tray panel. As I reminded there was such tool for KDE, but at this time I'm using GNOME and it's a really problem to find such stuff. Is there any tool for GNOME (showing keyboard layout tray icon) like in KDE?
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.

How can I view the keyboard layout? Sometimes I need to write things in a different language, and I can't find the keys that go with certain symbols. How can I view the keyboard map? In Ubuntu this is easy, but I can't find anything in Kubuntu.

I've been using using Ubuntu and Arch with gnome for ages, but after the whole gnome3 and unity hubub, I decided to go with kde and openSUSE. and I'm completely loving it. However, I have one problem Ubuntu (gnome) has the option to choose the Faroese keyboard layout, but in openSUSE with kde, it's not an option. Now I really need to be able to write a lot, so I need the regular Faroese layout, otherwise I'm missing the letter "ð". openSUSE should really implement Faroese into the keyboard layout options
I use several keyboard layouts all the time. In all previous versions of Ubuntu I could see which one is current. After upgrade it is not showing anymore -- there is just an irrelevant picture. If I click on it -- I see current layout name -- but not other layouts. There I need to select "Keyboard Preferences" in order to see others. Because I often switch between layouts -- this simple feature is VERY important. Why it is broken in Ubuntu 10.10?
I like view file listings in Nautilus in the List View. By default the "Location" column is not visible and I have to set it to visible through "View -> Visible Columns" each time. Is there anyway to make the change permanent?
