OpenSUSE :: Nautilus Address Bar Doesn't Show Filesystem Path / Text Location Bar

Aug 22, 2010

I have openSUSE 11.3 Gnome installed. The nautilus address bar shows the "Button Bar" and if I press Ctrl+L it swaps to the "Text Location Bar". The Text Location bar is where you see the full path to the directory that you're viewing.But I can't set the default addressing to the Text Location Bar.What else should I do to get the text location bar (i.e. the full path) to be the default view in the address bar?

Fedora :: F13 - Make Location/address Bar In Nautilus Look Like A String?

May 31, 2010

In Fedora 12/11 there used to be a button in the Nautilus to the left of the address/location bar which would let me switch between two representation of location bar: 1) buttons 2) as string that I can type in.

In Fedora 13 I cannot get the same behaviour. The button is missing and location only shows up as a set of buttons.

I have looked in the settings of Nautilus, but couldn't find anything related to this. How do I get location bar to show up as a string where I can manually type the path?

Ubuntu :: Why Is The Text Field For The Path Not In Nautilus Anymore

Feb 26, 2011

Why do you have to press ctrl-L to use the location text box in Nautilus? There used to be a setting in preferences where you could have it always use the text bar. Now you have to use some gconf command in the terminal. The gconf command I've used also will only work for normal users. If I want to open a root nautilus terminal to move files around between my mounted drives then I have to hit ctrl-l every time. It is really annoying because if I am in a Nautilus window there are lots of times where I need to copy the path to something I am doing in the terminal.

Why does it seem like everything involved with Ubuntu is simplifying things at the expense of having options? I thought GNU/Linux was all about options. I guess it still is, but I just cannot understand why you would completely remove options instead of just putting them in an advanced section or something.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Location Bar - Switch To Text Mode Button Missing

Jul 1, 2010

I just installed 10.04 on a computer I put together, I noticed the button that allows you to switch back and forth to the 'text entry mode' on the nautilus location bar is missing. Is there a way to get this back? I found you can use CTRL+L or use gconf-editor to switch but I used that button quite a bit and want to find a way to get it back.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Doesn't Show All Files?

Nov 29, 2010

Nautlius doesn't show all the files that are in a folder From the screenshots below you can see that there are more files in the folder (ls from the terminal shows them all), however nautilus doesn't. Other .mkv files show up in other folders so its not that

I've tired turning off previews and that didn't work. Running nautilus as root didn't work either

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Doesn't Show Free Space?

May 30, 2010

After moving to Lucid Lynx, I've noticed, that when I view Folder Preferences, Nautilus no longer displays the free space available, but instead displays "Free space: Unknown".

In some cases it still appears to show the free space, for example when viewing properties of Home folder, or viewing the properties of a detachable HDD in media-folder (but not when trying to view the properties of any of the folders _on_ that HDD).

Ubuntu :: OpenMotif : Create Network Location Link As Local Filesystem Location?

Apr 26, 2011

I'm working with a program that uses Open Motif to create all of the widgets, including the Open File dialog box (obviously). However, Open Motif being kinda old-timey, 80's vintage, and for the most part now an abandoned project, it is quite clunky. So, actually what I need to do is to open some files located on my work server. I have already successfully connected to the relevant server directories with Samba, and with programs built with GTK+ (such as GIMP) I can open files across the network because I have created a bookmark in Nautilus, and those bookmarks appear in the Open File dialog box created by GTK+. Now, Open Motif is different: it doesn't see network locations, orNautilus shortcuts. When I type "smb://serveripyadayada" in the search folder, it really doesn't like it and complains. So, what do I do? Can I get somehow Open Motif to open a network location? Or can I do a run-around and place a shortcut in the file system that points to the network location?

Ubuntu :: Move Nautilus Location Bar In Nautilus Up By Toolbar?

Apr 11, 2010

Does anyone know how I can move the location bar in nautilus up by the toolbar, as shown by this pic:

I'd rather not have to download the source of nautilus and edit the code / compile it myself.

By the way, a guy on Ubuntu Forums thought this was a mockup. It's not. It's the regular version of Nautilus, only I removed some toolbar buttons through the /usr/share/nautilus/ui xml files.

I just want the location bar next to the toolbar to conserve screen space, and be a bit more like Finder.

Oct 8, 2010

I use this command:

But I want the executed command to create this path

OpenSUSE :: Weird Characters And Missing Texts - Don't Show Any Text At All But Squares Instead

May 22, 2011

I am using a VRS for ftp operations. I have bought it with OpenSuSe 11.3 installed without any Control Panel installed. I have used NX and installed IceWM as windows manager. It works really great. Then system wanted me to upgrade. I did so. After upgrade to 11.4, my programs screwed up. They don't show any text at all but squares instead. I have tried everything i know to fix this but i could not manage to repair it.

My VRS has 512mb RAM , OpenSuse 11.4 (32-Bit) and has no control panel. I use yast through SSH Telnet client (Putty).

Ubuntu Security :: HOME - /bin Location In PATH ?

Dec 1, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 10.04 only be dismayed to find ${HOME}/bin FIRST IN THE PATH. I blogged about it at my blog (I sudo an xterm rather than just sudoing to get a different background for the sudo'd xterm): [url]

I agree that some new user should probably not be logging on as root. But if the replacement for 'ls' is in their ${HOME}/bin/ the sudo'd shell inherits the same PATH, umask, and everything else! In general I take a dim view of a sudo only way of doing things. It seems to cause more problems than it solves for disciplined, knowledgeable users. In the case of Ubuntu it caused me to create a /root folder for root to reset the umask back from 077 which is what I use over to 022 which is what root should use. The /root/.profile of course made sure there is no /home/me/bin in the sudo'd PATH. It didn't matter because somebody is not just SETTING the file perms and is instead calculating them based off of modifications to the umask. JUST SET THEM! I ran into a problem with GRUB getting things fouled up because I was having to remove the new kernels and instead of using the command line option (much prefereable) used Synaptic Manager instead: [url]

In fhe case of an infection living in a user's file space you really should want to go in to clean it out as some other user than the user that is infected. Having said that the hackers seem to be going for the whole enchilada right off the bat. A WARNING is in order here. DO NOT USE A ROOT ACCOUNT OR SUDO FOR NORMAL TASKS! But please put ${HOME}/bin last in the PATH or preferably don't even put it in the PATH at all. Let users add it themselves if they want it. Also once hackers figure out that hijacking a sudo tty (from what I just read else-where here I would say several hackers are working on doing that right now - sendmail my ****) is a dandy way of doing things you really will need to provide for ways of cleaning a user infestation out by going at it some other way than through that infected user. A lot of Ubuntu users have only one login account, the one they created when they set the machine up.
