Ubuntu :: Easiest Way To Find Files In Folder / Directory?

Oct 10, 2010

With Windows XP, I just right clicked a folder/directory and pressed FIND then I could search for whatever file/folder name i wanted to. I could even do custom searches based on the size, modification date etc.How do you do this on Ubuntu? There doesnt seem to be a way to easily do it like this. So far i found PLACES -> SEARCH FOR FILES but that means I have to go into the directory i want. Where as I would much rather be browsing through directories and THEN want to quickly search in a particular folder. The SEARCH FOR FILES method in PLACES just wastes more time.

Fedora :: Can't Find / Display Files In Home Folder In Terminal Or Fm

Feb 23, 2010

I was messing around with fed 12 yesterday (only on a test installation) and i've hit a snag. I installed openbox and tint2, nitrogen, obconf etc so i could have a #!-style session at startup. It all worked fine until i installed pcmanfm and removed nautilus. The problem is that i can't display files in my home directory, either using pcmanfm, a reinstalled nautilus, or in terminals. Every time i try to point a file brower there it just seems to get stuck searching forever, until i kill it. Weirdly in terminator i can do an 'ls' to see visible files, but 'ls -la' causes the problem again.

ps i thought permissions might have something to do with it, so i did a 'chmod -R 777' as root. it changed permissions for quite a lot of the files but then froze again, and now the problem persists.

Ubuntu :: Can't Create New Folder In System Files (not Even In Terminal)?

Mar 17, 2011

I don't seem to be able to create a new folder in my system files. I know I have to do this in the terminal as root, but I always get the answer that it cannot create the directory because there is no such file or directory. Yet the directory where I want to make the new folder definitely exists (I even just go there and try to create the folder)Here is the exact code:Code:lukas@lukas-VGN-FZ21E:/proc/asound/card0/pcm0p$ sudo mkdir ossmkdir: cannot create directory `oss': No such file or directory

Ubuntu :: System Crashing On Navigating Into Folder With Video Files?

Apr 2, 2011

Whenever I navigate into a folder containing video files, my entire system freezes/crashes. The keyboard, video, and the entire system become entirely unresponsive.

I can recreate the problem every single time by simply opening a nautilus window, then going into a directory containing 1 or more video files (avi, mkv, mp4, etc.). It doesn't seem to matter whether I stay in the folder, or quickly navigate away either. Seconds later, the system freezes entirely, to the point where my capslock key does not even toggle the capslock indicator.

I first noticed the problem when I installed 10.10 months ago on my Acer AspireOne D250. I had recently upgraded to ubuntu natty beta hoping the problem might have been fixed.

Software :: Dependent Libraries And Header Files In Non System Folder?

Apr 5, 2011

I've a source code of a program and I know that to compile and install that program I've to do:
./configure --prefix=/opt/test
make
make install

Now I want the program to look for dependent libraries and header files first in a non system folder. Now how can i instruct "configure" and "make" script to look for dependencies first in a different folder without editing configure and Makefile. And after these folders are searched for dependencies by the script it can look in system folder. Is there any environment variable that i can supply to "configure" and "make"? Will that work without any conflict? what are these environment variables? And also if I use these environment variables do I need to edit the source code files?

I mean do I need to change these lines
Code:
#include <test1.h> ...
to
Code:
#include "test1.h" ...

If yes then is there any other way to compile them without modifying the source code?

General :: Find Contents From Recycle Bin That Were Put Into One Folder - Name Unknown?

Oct 13, 2010

Recently I did a System Mechanics clean-up of invalid and other misc files. The files were moved to the recycle bin, but I couldn't open a file individually while it was in the recyle bin in order to double check whether or not I wanted to perminently delete it. I then selected all items and moved them to a single folder hoping to open it later to review the individual files.I don't know the folder name or what part of the computer this folder was moved to. Is there a way I can find this new folder, name unknown, that was created on 10-12-10? I'm sure it's taking up valuable space in my computer and I want to permently delete the unwanted items individually and not as a whole batch.
