General :: Wanted Window Restore Feature In Nautilus?
Aug 10, 2010
suppose an Ubuntu or Linux user is using GNOME and he/she has opened too many folders , suddenly he/she has to shutdown/ switch off machine due to power failure or some other unexpected reasons , now when he/she reboots the machine he/she can't remember the folders he/she had opened earlier so there should be a window restore feature for nautilus in Ubuntu or Linux in general Ubuntu or Linux should implement the same window restore feature in nautilus similar to the one existing in Mozilla firefox see the screen shot here:- [URL]

Is it possible to change my current nautilus window to have sudo capabilities,? e.g. to delete locked files. It may be lazy but if it takes a lot of navigation then it would be handy to somehow activate sudo from the open window without the terminal command (gksudo nautilus) which always begins at root.
My system boots, I login and am brought to my desktop. I click on the file system icon in the launcher to open a Nautilus window. The window opens, but is unresponsive (i.e., I can't move it, clicking on the icons does nothing, etc.). If I press the super key to get the dash and the press escape, the window becomes responsive again, just like normal.
If I open a folder in the window, the window becomes halfway unresponsive in that I can't move the window, but I can select more folders and toolbar icons. The top menu no longer appears at this point, and I can't access any of the system icons on the top right of the screen. Alt-F4 closes the window even if the close button doesn't work.As another example, suppose I open a Nautilus window and then a Chromium window. Both are immediately unresponsive. If I super-esc again, I can move the Chromium window around, and it seems to work normally. I can click on the Nautilus window, but it always stays greyed out. Even if I'm clicking on things in it, the Chromium window always has focus.
I had a similar experience to this with VLC and Chromium. After clicking around enough I eventually got it to the point where VLC apparently always had focus, but I couldn't access any of VLC's controls. Double clicking anywhere on the screen fullscreened the video, and that's all I could really do. Not even escape worked to bring it back.I can usually press super to get the dash and Alt-F2 to get a command prompt. Also Alt-Shift-T seems to usually work to bring up a working Terminal (at least one that accepts commands, even if I can't move the window).Does anyone have any ideas on what might be causing this? The behavior is highly unpredictable and extremely frustrating. I should note that key commands don't always work, even though they seem to in my examples. So I don't think it's just a mouse issue.
I have been tearing at my hair on how to get rid of the dashes that are on every window. For instance dolphin has this on File Edit View etc, and it allows you to navigate trough the menus using the alt f (for file) alt e (for edit), but how do you turn this feature off?
I have Soad Linux installed. E17 environment really works fast for me. But I have a question, how do the one make window manager to be more feature filled? For example other e17 Linux distributions has a full path of file directory on the window tools frame so you can simply click on any directory from this list like "Home/Media/Movies" and you are brought back to the selected directory (Home for example). I managed to find how to enable it, but that section of windows manager doesn;t seem to work well, it is too small horizontally so in order to see other directories the one has to click small arrows and scroll. Resizing doens;t allow to make it bigger, how could I fix that?.
Also how do the one make the mounted mediums list on the left, similar like in gnome windows manager? I found a control panel which lets you choose between KDE, Gnome and LXDE (I think) for e17 But changing between them doesn't seem to change anything. Yes I rebooted the pc so it could take the effect, but no changes were made.
I have installed nautilus-elementary but didn't like it. So I wanted to go back to regular nautilus but the gui items and icons are missing. Only icons left are Backward and Forward buttons. I have removed elementary repository and reinstalled the nautilus but it didn't restore the default nautilus. How can I restore it? Is there any additional packages to install?
Does anyone know what happened to the Multiseat feature that had been in the feature list at one point?To briefly summarise, a single machine with multiple graphics cards, sound cards, keyboards & mice provides multiple seats for users. Each user gets their own monitor, keyboard, mouse & perhaps audio. The rest of the machine resources are then shared.
The last I saw on the topic was this discussion, although I have a recollection that there was going to be support in a newer version of X.Org. I've googled around quite a bit, but can't seem to find anything.
Anybody know anything? It would be a great feature to have and it's frustrating to have had such an omission since F8 :-o
I have two ext3 lv's of 4GB and 10GB in my hda8 partition, and they are automounted by /dev/mapper/ in my /etc/mtab files in each of the four distros (Suse9.3, OpenSuse10.2, kubuntu7.04 and Debian Lenny 5.0.3). Since ext3 is a journalled fs I feel I ought to fsck their integrity every 3 months or so, however I don't know
a) whether they must be unmounted before running fsck, b) whether I should use a live CD such as knoppix to run the fsck command, and c) whether I can and/or should run fsck /dev/hda8, or whether I should somehow fsck each lv seperately?
I'm running Ubuntu Netbook on my laptop and have tweaked it by removing Window Picker and replacing it with NameBar. The only problem I have is that I can no longer double click the title bar to restore a maximized window. Is there any way to change this?
How do I get Nautilus to "remember it's window size? It seems that with F12 when I open a nautilus window it starts at some preset default size, and even though I change it and then close it. It returns to the default size when I open it again.
I just upgraded from Ooo 2.4 to Ooo 3.3, running it on Hardy. Everything seems to work fine, except for the dialogue window to open / save files.
In the previous version of Ooo I worked with, files were opened and saved by Nautilus. Now Ooo uses a different file manager which I don't like, because I can't jump quickly to my favourite maps and it's harder to navigate through my files. It has to be easy to have Nautilus again opening files, but I just can't find out how.
I got many problems after installing ubuntu 10.04 on del vostro!! Problems: when I right click the background i can find only one option "change background".I am expecting something like "create folder" ,"create launcher " etc. when i tried to move clock, notification area, window selector, i can't because all the things out there are locked and and unlocked is not available! i can't find window decorations for nautilus and most other windows but i have it in case of system settings windows. i tried metacity --replace but it is not working.
Slightly concerned as 10.04 is still suffering from the slow window restore, same as 9.10. Are we going to be looking at running another patched xserver-no-backfill (xorg-server) package, which was well out of date on 9.10? [URL]
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.
Can I change the colour of the window that appears if I use nautilus with gomesu? I want it to differ from the color of a normal nautilus window of (the in GNOME logged in) normal user "tux"? I use the GNOME file browser nautilus sometimes with superuser rights. But I want also to remind me that I am now root and has his power.Can I just ad an argument/option to the command (like "--no-desktop") or do I have to change some settings for root?I doubt the second would work (alone). But if the second has to be and would help: where can I find his window color settings of root?
Is there a alternate way to open the Nautilus Preferences Window (http://i.imgur.com/hCffn.gif)? I cannot open it via Edit -> Preferences (the option is not there). I removed Nautilus-Elementary and I think that messed up something.
I don't know if this is a known issue, but when I want to copy/move a file to a folder containing lots of sub-folder displayed as list, I can't do a simple drag&drop, because there is no empty space to move this file. It will always go into one of the sub-folders. So obviously I have to go up one folder or to change view from list to Icon or Compact. Is it a known issue? Is there a solution? (Using GNOME nautilus 2.30.1)
There's something very annoying about how Nautilus opens "image viewer" windows. They open, I can see them, but when I press the keyboard, it's still Nautilus which gets the commands. This is because Nautilus stays the active window!
Most annoyingly, when I want to have a quick look at an image, and then close it, Nautilus closes instead (Alt+F4).
Does anyone know what I'm talking about? How to solve it?
I was messing around with different GUI sessions, and I wanted to try XFCE. Well, I switched to XFCE for a session, and I played around in it. When I went back to a Gnome session, however, it appears that Thunar is now the default filesystem explorer.I get the Thunar explorer. I want the Nautilus explorer. How do I fix this issue?
I have just installed F11 and want to change Nautilus to default Ubuntu and not open each folder in separate window. But I can't go to Edit/Preferences.Nautilus keeps crashing and I get this report:Quote:
For instance, the one thing I hated more than anything, was the touch-pad on here, and I mean whenever you touched it it counted as a mouse click. I always hated it and in Windows I found a way to disable it with disabling the entire mouse pad, how do I do the same in Ubuntu? In every other distribution I didn't have to worry about it, but I suppose that I'm using the proprietary drivers or something.
Anyway, TL;DR: How do I disable a touch pad feature
I was wondering is there any way to add additional, alternative key binding to a particular feature in compiz? I am using Wall plugin and on my ThinkPad it is convenient to switch between horizontal workspaces with media buttons for browser navigation. But there just two of them, so I have to use completely different combinations to switch between workspaces vertically and that would be good if I can also use similar kind of combination to switch horizontally as well in addition to those media buttons. Is there a way maybe to send a message to the compiz to execute particular command?
