OpenSUSE :: Setting File Filter For File Open Dialog (to Suppress Showing "hidden" Files, Etc.)?

Dec 10, 2010

On both my 32-bit laptop (openSUSE 11.3) and my 64-bit desktop (openSUSE 11.2) I have been unable to find out how to prevent seeing all the "hidden files" when opening files in many applications, including (for example) GIMP, Xournal, OpenOffice, gedit.In the Control Centre "File management" options "Show hidden and backup files" is NOT checked in "File Management Preferences.

Fedora :: Php - File Dialog - Select And Open A File

Dec 7, 2009

I have an application for loading data into MySQL table using php, through excel-Reader. php is set up on the localhost and the web-page is available from: [url]

The code of xlr2.php:

When I open the page, I get the message to choose a file with the file-dialog box and the notice as:

Notice: Undefined index: action in /var/www/html/xlr/xlr2.php on line 10

Default Action:

Choose a file to Load into MySQL:

Why so? I am selecting file from ("/home/lx/myDocuments/tech/excel/smslist.xls"), but the warning says that [failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/www/html/xlr/xlr2.php on line 33]. A different directory than I selected.

Programming :: JFileChooser : Setting The Default 'file Filter'

Sep 28, 2010


// create a filechooser;
JFileChooser chooser = new JFileChooser(cwd);
FileNameExtensionFilter filter = new FileNameExtensionFilter(
"sdf files (*.sdf)", "sdf");


This will give 3 filefilters ('all files', 'sdf files' and 'xml files') for a fileopen dialog. Exactly as I want (in alphanumerical order), but XML is the default extension and I like SDF to be the default extension. Research has not revealed solutions; the setFileFilter method sets the primary filter. If I swap the sequence in the code, SDF becomes the default (as I want) but the sequence is wrong (All, XML, SDF).

Fedora :: Gnome 3 Open File Dialog Not Talking To Browser?

Aug 25, 2011

I suspect this is a Gnome 3 problem and not a Fedora problem, but I have no way to separate the two here. I cannot upload an image from my computer to Weebly or to Google Plus, but strangely enough, I can upload one to Picasa. The sequence of actions goes something like this:

1. Open Weebly editing interface, add a picture element, click on the element to edit/add a picture. It then gives you a choice: from your local computer, from the web, etc.

2. Click on 'from local computer' and my computer opens the Open File Dialog Window.I am guessing that is its name, it is the same window you get when opening a file in any other application, like Gedit or LibreOffice.

3. Navigate to the image I want to upload and double click on it or select 'Open'.

4. Nothing happens.

I am able to upload images from my laptop, running Linux Mint 11 with Gnome 2.

It sounds to me like the Open File Window is not passing on the necessary information to the browser. I have no idea why it works in Picasa and not in Google+ or Weebly.

I don't really expect anyone to have a solution just yet, but I wanted to mention it somewhere, and I didn't see any forums. On the other hand, if someone does have a solution, great.

This is by no means a knock on Gnome 3, it is fine with me and I Iike it a lot more than I thought I would.

General :: Cannot Open File In RW Mode - Filling Root File System With Log Files

Nov 3, 2010

I work for a company that makes portable devices running Linux and I was recently asked to make the underlying file system read-only for "security" purposes. Since the distribution is based on LinuxFromScratch, I know that very little writing happens at run time. So, even if the device runs on a usb flash device, I doubt that putting the root file system RO will be that beneficial. I am actually more concerned about a process actually breaking because it cannot open a file in RW mode than a process going rogue and filling the root file system with log files, etc. I'd really like to ear what kind of advantages disadvantages there really is with read-only file-systems.

Programming :: Zenity - Hiding Hidden Files From File Selections?

Sep 12, 2010

I'm using zenity 2.28.0 in a bash script (under kde4) to select multiple files in a directory. It works fine, but always defaults to showing hidden files. How can I get it to hide hidden files by default?

I know about toggling them on and off with Ctrl-H, but I would prefer not to have to use that. I have my options set so that dolphin and konqueror do not show hidden files by default. I even tried adding shopt -u dotglob to my script. zenity invocation (extracted from a more complex statement): zenity --title "Select Print Files to Delete" --file-selection --multiple

OpenSUSE :: OpenOffice File Dialog Does Not Reflect Changes Of New Documents?

Jan 7, 2011

Whenever, I successfully save a new document, the document's icon does not display in the KDE File Dialog until OpenOffice restarts. The document exists, because trying to do a "Save As" on it produces a dialog that states if one wants to overwrite the document. Also, trying to export a PDF twice has the same outcome.

OpenOffice 3.2.1

Software :: Evolution Is Showing Hidden Files And Folders In Folder Tree

Oct 31, 2009

I am using evolution for my email client, and it shows me hidden files and folders in the folder tree. Basically, my email folder is in a unix folder on a system, and that system logs me into my folder when I try using evolution. The downside is that files like .bashrc, .bash_profile and other weird stuff end up in the foldertree view

See how the tree would show bashrc and .lynxrc?The folder "documents" shouldn't be showing either.Yeah, that's really annoying. It showing the contents of the $HOME folder that I login to.In thunderbird those things wouldn't show.It must be evolution specific.Anyone have an idea how to fix this issue?

Fedora :: Cannot Select Multiple Files In "File Upload" Dialog

Fedora :: Fc14 Amd64 Gnome - Hiding Hidden Files In Dolphin And Showing Full Location In Nautilus?

Apr 4, 2011

Trying the various settings (and noticing ubuntu gnome users recently had the same exact OPPOSITE problem -- they can't SHOW hidden files in dolphin) to hide my hidden files in dolphin is not working. The settings are saved OK, but those damn (ending in tilde, ie "~") files do NOT ever hide! I even see the correct little green recycling symbol on them, indicating they're identified as such, but no actual hiding goes on..

Nautilus, which I've used before (but have grown tired of, and was looking forward to dolphin), also has a weird issue that seems to have appeared with FC13 (I'd been using FC12 'til now mostly because of this) - there's no way (AFAIK) to tell it to show the location; to see it, you have to click Go->Location each time. Previously I could set it to print out the whole file or server path and it would stay that way when I opened new windows.. This is on fresh install & update.. kernel is

Programming :: Programmatically Getting Standard File Dialog

Jul 14, 2010

Is it possible to do the following in C/C++ in Linux:Without direct linking (my program should NOT depend on Qt or GTK), display a GTK or Qt based file dialog.The behaviour should be something like this when my program runs, when you want to open a file:The program scans whether you have Qt installed. If so, it somehow manages to link itself to Qt (e.g. dynamically loading the .so file) and display its file dialog and get the path from it. If Qt wasn't found, it tries the same with GTK. If that also wasn't found, it displays a less powerful replacement dialog instead (better than nothing).

Or is there any other simple way in Linux to get a standard file dialog somehow (similar to when compiling for Windows you can very easily get its standard file dialog, no matter what version of Windows, in your code, even if your program doesn't use any other Windows GUI at all).

Server :: Firefox "Save File" Dialog For .otf Font File On 1 Server And Not On Another

May 25, 2010

I have 2 Linux servers, both Red Hat Enterprise 4.

If I visit a page with links to .otf (Opentype Font) files on a Linux server (prod) and I click on one of them, Firefox renders the font. If I visit the same page on a different Linux server (dev), I get a "Save File" prompt in Firefox.

In Internet Explorer, I get the File Save prompt from either server.

It's probably a package that the prod server has that the dev server doesn't? I'm not sure where to start looking or what to look for.

I do want the Save prompt.

I am trying to comply with a security mandate that all log files in the directory /var/log are set to 0640. The two mentioned files always seem to have the permissions 0644, does anyone know where and when these filea are created and how I might set the permissions when the files are created

Software :: GTK File Chooser Dialog Box Side Panel Behavior

May 10, 2011

In both Slackware 12.2 (gtk 2.12.12) and Slackware 13.1 (gtk 2.18.9), the left-hand side panel of the GTK file chooser (File Open and Save) dialog box displays three sections. The first section contains two options: Search and Recently Used. The second section contains several options. The third section are personal bookmarks I have created and stored in $HOME/.gtk-bookmarks.

Modifying the bookmarks section is straightforward, but I am searching for ways to modify the first and second sections.

1. In both 12.2 and 13.1, the second section shows the following: $HOME directory, Desktop, File System. In 13.1, several mount points now appear. I think the criterion being used is the mount point being outside the main root tree. Several of these mount points are configured in fstab with the noauto option and are user mounted only as necessary. I do not want any of these volumes appearing in that section nor the Desktop option. Is there a way to exclude those volumes and options?

2. In that same second section are two mounted volumes from a second internal drive. Those two partitions are part of my bookmarks. In 12.2 those two partitions appeared in the bookmarks section. In 13.1 those two bookmarks are ignored and instead appear in the second section. I prefer those two points appear in my bookmarks section because I prefer my own labels rather than mount point names. Is there a way to do that?

3. Is there an option in $HOME/.config/gtk-2.0/filechooser.ini to control the width of the side panel?

My sister and I are both dual boot and for now my wife is windows only. Pretty soon though I plan on setting her up on linux as well. What would I need? And are there any "good" guides to setting something like this up?

I would like to use the system to:

- Store media / files
- Maybe have KMyMoney on it and share with the wife
- Hook a printer to and use as common printer
