Ubuntu :: Customize File Folders In Karmic?

May 27, 2010

Is there a way that I can download either a new folder management system for Ubuntu Karmic or at least customize the current one so it works better? I don't like when I'm trying to find a certain file such as a .mp3 and I can't sort it by the name of the artist or the name of the show? I know that the actual MP3 file as the meta data embedded into the file but with Ubuntu Karmic I can't seem to set it so it will display in the List Columns. When I tried to go to List columns to change the preferences it only gives me limited options of what I can display and most of them our useless such as MIME type, Octal Permissions, SELinux context, etc.. I want to have columns such as Name, artist, author, album, etc...

I would like to customize my bootprocess on Karmic Koala.on <= jaunty i have been using the bootupmanager but on karmic it does not list all the processes and their state properly. so i think the internal changes within the karmic bootprocess have made bum inoperable. which is not that bad since karmic boots much faster but still i would like to make some changes to karmics boot.

Ubuntu :: Customize The Application Type Of A File?

Jun 2, 2010

I have some .loc files from geocaching's website. I wrote a special script that takes these files and converts them to my Bushnell GPS format and moves them into the correct folder. Now I'd like to associate a double click with my script. However, the .loc file shows up as "XML Document". yes, it's an XML document, but I only want .loc XML documents to be executed by my script. How can I give .loc files their own "type" so I can give them their own "Open With" application and not mess up every other xml file?

Ubuntu :: Shar File, But Karmic Says That It Is A Shell Script?

Jun 2, 2010

I downloaded the demo of Penumbra Overture, it is a sh file (113Mb). I can't open the file.In a terminal I ran chmod +x PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553sh and then sudo./PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553sh and I get an error "./PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553sh: 2:Syntax error: "(" unexpected" . The quotation marks are my own. Is the file corrupted?ne of my lugmates thinks it might be a shar file, but Karmic says that it is a shell script.Another friend says that it is too large to be a shell script. Here is the code:

johnjohn-laptop:~$ cd /home/john/00
johnjohn-laptop:~/00$ chmod +x PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553sh
johnjohn-laptop:~/00$ sudo ./PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553sh

Ubuntu :: Create Folders In The File System?

Oct 15, 2010

Why am I trying to create folders in the file system you ask? I'm messing around with Drupal and I want to add some modules. So I need to go to the blablabla/sites/ folder and add an 'all' folder followed by a 'modules' folder.No problem, right? Wrong?It seems I don't have the rights to create folders in the file system ( which I only recently figured out is actually root. duh. )I've figured out that I was able to install all the LAMP parts because I was using 'sudo' before every command, which apparently grants me temporary rights to root? ( I think? )Sooo... what's the magic for creating folders and transferring files to my Drupal folder... which it seems requires root permissions?

Ubuntu :: Create Folders In 9.10 File System

Nov 9, 2010

I have set up a dual boot system with Windows XP and Ubuntu 9.10. I have upgraded Ubuntu to the most current version available online. I'm unable to create folders or subfolders in the Linux file system. I have researched the manual and my Unbuntu Linux book and see that I should be able to click on 'File' from the menu, then 'Create Folder', and then input the new folder name, but the 'Create Folder' selection is 'grayed' out which I conclude means that it is set on inactive and unable to be used. I am able to access my Windows disk by mounting and then typing in my password, so I have Administrator privileges.

I'm able to create a new folder in Unbuntu Linux for my Windows (NTFS) files. When I installed Unbuntu, I did not see any options to have write access to the Ubuntu file system. I can create new files within the existing folders. Soon after working out my Linux problems, I will be using PHP/MySQL/Apache to do some important work, so I will need to be able to create new folders and subfolders in my Linux system. I have some urgent tasks I need to do away from my PC soon, so I will be a while before getting back to this.

Ubuntu :: No Network Folders Displayed During File Upload

Jul 27, 2010

I am trying to upload a photo to craigslist from a NAS drive on my network but when I go to choose the file, the network resources are not listed in the file tree. Or maybe I am not looking in the right place? Take a look at the attached. This is what I see, but there should be something on the left pane that says "Network" so that you can access your workgroup shares.

I also attached a screenshot from my "files & folders" menu which clearly shows such a "network" option in the file tree. How come it's in one place and not the other?

Ubuntu :: Can't Change The File Permissions Of Files And Folders

Nov 17, 2010

I've just read that I can't change the file permissions of files and folders if they are sitting in what was my old Windows D: drive. Is this correct? If so what is the work-around?

I don't want to have to cut and paste that entire D: drive's contents over to a recognised Ubuntu folder. I had in my mind that this D drive would continue to be my data dumping ground, to which I need read/write access to.

General :: Copy One File To All Folders?

Apr 4, 2009

I am developing a Web-based application and have some folders that will generally reside outside of the Web accessible area of the server. However, since some people will not be able to store those folders outside of the "public_html" folder, I am looking to put a blank "index.php" inside of every folder within that section of the application. To make things easier, I would like to know if there might be a way to recursively copy one file into every folder in a certain location.

In other words, is there a command that might do something like:
> cp -R index.php /home/user/public_html/source-files/*
Basically, I want every directory inside of "source-files" to get a copy of "index.php". The directory hierarchy within "source-files" can go at least three or four levels deep, so the command would need to be recursive. I am looking for a command-line statement that I can type to perform this action.

Networking :: Nfs Cache -> Don't See New File In Some Folders?

Nov 19, 2010

I'm using an embedded linux with a TX25 starterkit board.To start, this board proceeds as below :1. connect to my PC to download the kernel (using a ftp connection).2. uncompress the kernel and start it.3. connect to my pc to mount the root file system using nfs.. start the system.Everything works fine, except that I noticed there's maybe a nfs cache issue.for example, if a program run on the board creates a file in /home, I can see it from my PC (nfs server). => perfect !But if a program creates a file in /var/lib/dpkg/, I can see it from the board but not from my PC, so when I restart the board everything is lost.It seems to be a bad configuration.I tried to restart the nfs and nfslock services.here is my /etc/eports file.

I tried to use async.

Ubuntu Servers :: Default File Permissions For System Folders

What the file permissions should for the following folders:

The server is running and I fixed the some of the ownership issues already. I use a basic LAMP setup with samba, and proftp.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus File Manager Very Slow With Folders With Many Files?

Jun 3, 2010

With Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.0.4 I have seen that the nautilus filemanager is extremely slow with folders that contains many files or/and folders.I made sure that "Assistive Technologies" is diable. On the filemanager preference I set all preview to "Never", tried all possible views, but the filemanager remains extremely slow. It seems like it becomes even slower when the subfolders in the folder you are viewing new files are being created by for example a program. Possibly nautilus filemanager is updating continuously ?

I use to be using debian etch nautilus file manager. With the same directories, nautilus in debain etch was working much faster. But contrary to the one in Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.0.4 is is far less stable. It seems like the newer version is more stable but however extremely much slower. I was wondering if I am missing something. Or whether this is a bug. If it is a bug, then I am wondering when this is going to be solved in nautlius filemanager.

Ubuntu :: Configure File & Folders / Applications Objects To Display

May 18, 2011

It functions perfectly well, but the Files & Folders object has as a feature a 'recent' section which displays recently opened files. This is much the same as a menu object available in Gnome, except with the latter you could clear recent files for security or privacy purposes - you cannot do this in Unit.I have found that if you drag a file from the 'recent' section in the Unity Files & Folders object to Trash it doesn't just delete the shortcut - it deletes the target as well.

It is not at all clear if and how you can configure the File & Folders and the Applications objects to display what you want rather than the default, and the inability to quickly and safely clear recently opened items is something I think is in need of a fix.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Increase In File Size Of Ripped CD Tracks To MP3 Between Previous Releases Of Karmic?

Has anyone else noticed an increase in file size of ripped CD tracks to MP3 between previous releases of Ubuntu and Karmic? Specifically using the same Gstreamer pipeline settings the file size in Karmic is now considerably larger than in previous releases like Jaunty or Intrepid. Is there a fix for this bug. Seems like Sound Juicer/Rhythmbox have some significant bugs in Karmic!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Making A Mess Of Folders And File Names

Jan 8, 2010

I've been enjoying using Rhythmbox to rip a stack of CDs. Initially I had problems getting it to recognise Lame but following uninstalling and reinstalling it, it seemed to be working well. That is, until I looked in my Music folder.

It turns out files have been placed in individual folders, named "number - title.udio" (e.g.: "11 - She Can Do What She Wants.udio". The mp3 file itself is named identically throughout - it's the string for the gstreamer settings, i.e. "x-raw-int,rate=44100,channels=2 ! lame name=enc preset=1002 ! xingmux ! id3v2muxmp3".

The settings within Rhythmbox's properties for folder and file naming are all set to the sensible default. This is a pain. In the short term I'm going to try EasyTAG to sort it out, but ultimately I need to sort this or find alternative software.

Ubuntu :: Move A File To A Nautilus Window With Folders In List View?

Nov 23, 2010

I don't know if this is a known issue, but when I want to copy/move a file to a folder containing lots of sub-folder displayed as list, I can't do a simple drag&drop, because there is no empty space to move this file. It will always go into one of the sub-folders. So obviously I have to go up one folder or to change view from list to Icon or Compact. Is it a known issue? Is there a solution?
