Software :: Can't Close/kill/stop Instance Of Nautilus File Browser

Jun 9, 2010

I'm running

Opensuse 11.2
Kernel Linux
GNOME 2.28.2

I have an instance of Nautilus File Browser that will not close or be killed, and it always opens to the same directory, kdenlive in my home directory. I'm a newbie and have already googled. Rebooting, logging out and in as someone else, then logging back in again as myself doesn't stop it. And, I'm afraid to uninstall Nautilus. I've tried Re-installing it to no avail.

General :: Searching Content Of The File Using File Browser Nautilus?

May 27, 2011

I'm using rhel6. Using File Browser Nautilus 2.28.4 I could easily locate any file I'm interested in by it name. I'd like to use this File Browser to locate the file name based on it content e.g. based on some word in the text file. It doesn't work for me that way ... My question: does Nautilus support the search of file based on it content or only based on the name of the file itself?

Jun 12, 2010

Is there an alternative to Nautilus file browser? I mean a file browser which offers out of-the-box (!) more features and where I don't have to install such add-ons like nautilus-actions separately and defined some commands which should obviously be built-in.

Debian :: Nautilus File Browser - Open Folder By Using The Shift And F4 Keys

In the kde realm, with the dolphin file browser, I can open a terminal in whatever folder is in the gui by using the shift and f4 keys. I'd like to be able to accomplish the same in gnome with the nautilus file browser but can't figure out how to do same. So far I have to open a terminal and then cd to the desired folder. Or do I have to use some other file browser and which one?

Ubuntu :: Close Terminal, Kill The App That's Running?

May 15, 2010

So, this may have something to do specifically with conky, but I don't understand how sometimes when I run 'conky' from the terminal and then once it loads I close the terminal, it kills conky. But other times, I do the same thing, wait for it to load, and it just keeps running! In both cases, I don't get a "user@computer~:$" prompt back after running 'conky' either. That happens sometimes with other things like gedit too..

Ubuntu :: Closing A Nautilus Window Instance ?

Apr 18, 2010

Is there a way to identify and close a given instance of an open nautilus window from a command line?

Or can one identify via a command line that a given instance is open?

I'd like to tag one when it is open with a specific title and then if that is already open not open it again all from the command line.

Ubuntu :: Browser Tabs Close When Clicked

Nov 13, 2010

Since I installed Maverick, I've had trouble with Chrome and Firefox tabs. When I click a link, sometimes (50-60% of the time) the link opens in a new tab. When I click on tabs, again 50-60% of the time, they close. It's been happening since I installed Maverick, and there doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason to when I get a new tab or a tab closes. I have a Compaq Presario V6000 running 64bit Maverick with an Nvidia card.

Ubuntu :: Stop Suspend On Laptop Lid Close In GDM

Jun 14, 2011

I have done a fresh install of Ubuntu 11.04. My problem is that at the login screen if I close my laptop lid, the laptop goes into suspend. This is not the effect I want. GDM doesn't respect my settings in gnome-power-preferences and I can't seem to locate any other way to configure the power preferences for GDM. I have had 11.04 installed before as an upgrade to 10.10 and I did not have this problem in that case.

OpenSUSE :: KDE 4.5 - Mouse Will Stop Moving For About 1-1.5sec And Then Dolphin Will Close

Sep 13, 2010

I run my desktop the old fashioned way, lots of icons on it, I think its what you would call under KDE: Folder view. (right click desktop, settings, appearance, type: Folder view)

1- first thing I noticed was that you now have the + and - signs when you hover or select icons, I understand what they mean to do but to be honest I can do that perfectly well using ctrl + mouse click, so is there a way to not show the + and - sign.

2- with 11.2 and KDE 4.3.5 if I held my mouse over a folder on my desktop I would see its content in a panel. If I for exampled placed an image on the desktop the icon would be a small version of the image. In KDE 4.5 I no longer have these effect. In Desktop settings - Plasma Workspace under Display the Previews is checked and under More Preview Options I selected the whole lot. But nope it not longer will do a preview, am I missing something here ?

3- sometimes, but hard to reproduce, when closing for example Dolphin, it wont close right away, mouse will stop moving for about 1-1.5sec and then Dolphin will close. Not sure where to look for that. I won't mind entering a bug report at KDE but rather not do it if I simply missing something in the configurations.

Fedora :: Cleaning Up - Make Epiphany Remeber Tabs After Close Browser And Open It Again?

Nov 13, 2009

I just moved to Fedora 11 from Ubuntu and I am very happy, not even thinking to go back to Ubuntu (because of gma500 driver support). How can I clean up Fedora? On Ubuntu I could go to Synaptics, remove Installed (not residetial) packages, I coud use terminal sudo autoremove, autoclean, clean. On Fedora I found out only one so far: yum clean all. Is there anything else I should now, can you share with me how you are cleaning up your Fedora? Second thing, which is not only related to Fedora, is there any chance to make Epiphany remeber tabs after I close the browser and open it again? Don't really want to use any other browser.

Ubuntu :: Links From Widgets - Task Bar Shows An Instance Of Konqueror And Another Instance Of Firefox

Feb 15, 2010

I have KDE 4.4 and Firefox 3.6. Whenever I click a link from a plasmoid widget, it tries to open Konqueror and another instance of Firefox. The page actually loads in the opened Firefox window, but the task bar shows an instance of Konqueror and another instance of Firefox, that keeps loading for a while then close. See image below:

I currently have setup the browser default application as "firefox". If I set this option to use the default application, it opens in Konqueror and I don't see additional windows in the task bar. If I change the option to "firefox %u", then it exhibit the same issue, but the process is much faster, so the loading windows don't stay for long in the task bar. Additionally, it opens the link on a new Firefox window and opens the page twice. Although Konqueror is not loaded, the bouncing icon next to the mouse pointer shows up and stay for a while.

I need to stop the viewing of robots.txt on my website. I get the contents of the file displayed in my browser when I issue the command: [URL] stop this as it displays all the directories I don't want them to go to.
