Ubuntu :: Places Bookmarks Are Opened By Brasero By Default?

May 1, 2011

I opened a folder with brasero a while ago, to make a DVD. For some reason this stuck. When I click on any of the bookmarks in places, Brasero pops up. It also happens if I click "open containing folder" in Ktorrent, so it must be a global setting, but I couldn't figure out where to change this back to Nautilus

Fedora :: Cannot Follow Bookmarks In Main Menu (under "Places")

Jan 13, 2010

Whenever I try to use a bookmark in the Main Menu (under "Places"), I get an error message. For example, if I want to open my Documents folder, the message reads:

"[STOP Sign] Could not open location 'file:///home/pilotferdi/Documents'

Failed to execute child process "/usr/bin/digikam" (No such file or directory)" (I had digikam installed on my computer, then I decided to remove it.)When I open a Nautilus file browser, and choose "Information" from the side pane, my home directory is listed with these three options (buttons) below:

1. Open with digikam
2. Open with Gwenview
3. Open with Open Folder

Somehow, the default choice, "Open with Open Folder" has been replaced with "Open with digikam", and I cannot access the bookmarks anymore. I think I need to make "Open with Open Folder" the default option when I click on a bookmark, but I don't know how to do it. I tried without success to use alacarte to make the changes.

Fedora Networking :: Server Not Show Up On Network Places

Jan 9, 2011

I have a simple problem where Windows machines can connect to shares on my Fedora server (via SAMBA), but only when using the IP address. When Windows users to go Network (in Vista and 7) or Network Places (XP), then all computers on the network show up in that window except for the Fedora server. How can I get my server to appear in that space? Although I can connect via IP address, we are using some programs that can only find shares by the computer name (aka if it's found in the Network window). I have checked and rechecked that the workgroup name is indeed correct.

Debian :: Unexpected "Bookmarks" Section In "Places"?

Mar 1, 2011

as I recently added some folders in the Places sidebar of the file browser to reach them in a single click, I noticed that they also appeared in the Places section of the panel (which is logical and which is good) but in a bookmarks section that I would like to remove (to have the shortcuts of the folders still one click ahead) I tried the 'edit Menus' after a right click on the panel but without any success as it edits only the Application and System menu I also tried via the file browser but couldn't get it

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot See Network Shares In "Places"

Oct 20, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04 x64 desktop. We have a NAS with several shared directories. They mount fine using manual "Connect to Server" using the SMB protocol. I assigned "Bookmarks" on connection so that I can recall them more easily when needed. The shared drives appear under "Places" with the more user friendly Bookmarks for each share appearing after the line divider in File Manager. This is all splendid.

However, when for example wanting to attach a file from a mapped shared drive when writing an email in Gmail (in either Firefox or Chromium), the "File Upload" window that opens DOES NOT show any mapped shared drives or Bookmarks making it impossible to attach anything from a shared drive. how to fix this rather bizarre behaviour since it is severely limiting the usefulness of centralizing our files on a NAS if I cannot attach shared files to emails.

Drag and drop also does not work. Firefox ignores them while Chromium says "This file is 0 bytes, so it will not be attached." I just successfully attached the same files in Chrome running on a Windows 7 machine in Virtualbox. This is both amazing, and somewhat embarrassing. How to do this from within Ubuntu 10.04 so that I do not have to resort to running a Windows machine just so that I can attach shared files

Ubuntu :: Alt+F2 Network Link In Places Not Working

Dec 1, 2010

I'm running ubuntu maverick and i'm having issues with some things.First off, Alt+F2 no longer opens the Run Dialog. I have checked the keyboard shortcuts and settings and re-entered the command but it still doesn't work. I also checked the compiz settings for gnome compatibility. The odd thing is that all of my other Function key shortcuts work, just not Alt+F2 Not sure what else to try.

Next, I am not able to open Network in Places. I click it, then I get a loading icon for half a second then nothing opens. Also, when I click Places > Connect to Server, the only option that I have is custom location. The issue with this is that I used to have several other options like FTP, SSH, Windows Share, etc.

Ubuntu Servers :: Cannot See Shared Samba PC On XP Network Places

Mar 24, 2011

I did set samba server up. I just modified only one configuration from default /etc/samba/smb.conf file.

Just workgroup = MSHOME to workgroup = WORKGROUP.
And browseable = yes.
Beacuse my xp workgroup is WORKGROUP. So I changed as same workgroup name
both unbuntu and XP.

But I couldn't find samba pc on network places at XP. I have started smbd and nmbd already. There is a ridiculous something. I can access samba at XP only typing \samba IP address. But why I can't see at network places. I am using ubuntu 10.04 TL.

Ubuntu Networking :: NFS Mount Shows Multiple Times In The Places?

Mar 23, 2011

I have the follwoing fenomenan. In my /etc/fstab I have an entry to automatically mount my NAS. Here is my entry: /media/My�40NAS nfs _netdev,
auto,rw,hard,users,intr 0 0

When my laptop boots it successfully mounts the NFS NAS and I get an icon "My NAS" on my dekstop that points to the NAS. If I double click on the icon it opens my file browser and I can browse thru my NAS fodlers.

What I see on the left hand side of the file browser is that I have to entries for My NAS. One of it has a button to shows that it is mounted and the other does not.

If I go to Places I also see 2 entries for "My NAS". One of it takes me to browsing the NAS and if I click on the other it says "Unable to mount ... busy or already mounted". Which makes sense.

General :: Secure Erase Of CF Card Over USB?

Aug 9, 2011

I have a CF card I'd like to erase. My CF card reader is connected to my Linux machine via USB. How do I do a secure erase (i.e., the ATA Secure Erase functionality) of the CF card?

I have tried hdparm --security-erase NULL /dev/sdc, but I get an error: ERASE_PREPARE: Invalid exchange. In fact, any hdparm command gives me the same error:

# hdparm -I /dev/sdc
HDIO_DRIVE_CMD(identify) failed: Invalid exchange

I read somewhere that hdparm can't do an ATA Secure Erase of a drive that is connected over USB. Is this true? I tried using sdparm, but sdparm doesn't seem to have the capability to send the ATA Secure Erase command to the CF card. So, what is the proper way to do this?

Ubuntu :: Erase Profile At Logoff

Aug 3, 2010

I work for a public school and we are implementing a number of Ubuntu NBR 9.1 netbooks. I wanted to use Likewise Active Directory for authentication, but have problems with the software so now I'm onto another solution for our problem.
We are going to have one login for all users (Students, is the name). The problem with this is that Website passwords can inadvertantly be stored, potentially compromising users personal data. Additionally, I don't want to have any files left in the Students profile in case people accidentally save personal information in their files.I'm thinking there are potentially two solutions:

1. The Students profile is deleted when the user logs off. This will erase web history and files

2. The Students account is always logged in with a temporary profile (or no profile, if that is possible) that deletes itself at logoff because it is temporary.

I'm having a hard time coming up with search terms for a solution like this, so I thought I would put the question to the experts.

Ubuntu :: How To Erase And Reinstall Grub

Oct 11, 2010

Several moths ago I installed Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat alfa3 in a newly created partition while I was using Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx. After I installed the 10.10 alfa3, I realized that it also installed its grub. Moreover that grub could not detect the kernel updates of 10.04. Thus, I recovered the grub of 10.04 via live CD. Interestingly after I returned the grub of 10.04 the boot time of 10.04 has considerably increased.

For example, the Ubuntu splash screen appears 20 seconds after selecting Ubuntu in Grub menu. I thought that a fresh installation for 10.10 final release would solve the problem but it seems that I'm still getting the same boot time until the splash screen is the same. It seems that I need a fresh installation of Grub. The methods that are introduced following url are just recovers Grub. I need to erase and reinstall the Grub. [URL]

General :: Erase Operating System

Nov 22, 2010

Assume I have a computer on which I want to use ubuntu for a while (single boot). Assume also that in about six months I want to give this computer to Mr. X, but I do not want Mr. X to know that I have been using ubuntu. I don't want to install anything over top of ubuntu, I just want the computer to be completely (or as nearly completely as possible) blank so that Mr. X cannot infer what I've been doing on it. The trick here is that I can't use operating system x_{1} to delete operating system x_{0}. I don't want Mr. X to know anything about which OS I have been using. Mr. X, by the way, is a sophisticated computer user but not particularly interested in tracking me down. Once he sees that the computer is blank Mr. X will just install his own operating system and everybody will be happy.
