Ubuntu :: DVD Drive Not Listed In Nautilus?

Nov 26, 2010

For some reason, my CD/DVD drive is not visible in Nautilus. I I can't see it either as a top-level item in Tree or Places views or in File System > /media. There is a /media/cdrom entry, but nothing in it, even with a DVD in the drive. When I type "sudo blkid," there is no entry for the DVD drive. It is physically connected and I can read from it when I dual-boot into Windows XP; just can't find it in Ubuntu

General :: USB And Hard Drive Listed In /proc But Not /dev

May 10, 2010

I'm working in CentOS 5.4 with the default 2.6.18-164 kernel (which I will be editing but have reverted back to in order to solve this problem.)

Near the end of the init script I have thrown a /bin/sh to get into a busybox bash shell in order to test some scripts. Ive attached the init below.

While in this shell I can see my usb drive in /proc/bus/usb/devices and my hard drive in /proc/scsi/device_info however I cannot mount them as they are not in /dev.

I have scsi emulation set in the kernel. When I plug in a USB stick it finds the address but still no sign of it in /dev. There are other modules listed in /sys/module such as usbcore that dont show up in lsmod, is that possibly the problem?

Init Script


mount -t proc /proc /proc
echo Mounting proc filesystem
echo Mounting sysfs filesystem
mount -t sysfs /sys /sys

Fedora :: Backup Drive Listed Twice (Make Auto Set Permissions)

Dec 14, 2009

I have an issue that my BACKUP drive is listed twice. (internal FAT) I am running F12 32b. I have it listed in FSTAB so it will automount & set the permissions. I did this in the earlier versions I upgraded from. I would like to either get rid of the other entry or, if easier, make it auto & set permissions but I don't know where it is.

Ubuntu :: Remount A Usb Drive With Nautilus In Lynx?

May 8, 2010

After using "safely remove drive" on a usb drive automatically mounted (in lucid lynx) i no longer have the ability to remount that drive without cycling its power.I don't know if it has anything to do with removing the "unmount" option from nautilus in favor of cleaning up menu.Anyway I didnt see any forum posts on the issue ---ps. anyone have trouble using a proprietary gfx driver (nvidia for me), a custom console resolution (specified by grub), and the splash screen - when trying to access the ctrl-alt-function tty's?seems the resolution is all screwed up or something and i cant see the login prompt. disabling splash via grub fixed it fine (EDIT - did not fix it)

Ubuntu :: How To Get Nautilus To Automount Ext Drive At Startup

May 29, 2010

I want nautilus to automatically mount my external drive when ubuntu 10.04 starts. This drive is encrypted, but the key has already been stored and all I have to do is click on it in my Places menu for it to mount.

It mounts to: /media/Will's Drive

I feel like I shouldn't have to edit fstab or anything like that. If I can add it to my startup programs, that would be great, I just need to know the command to get nautilus to open up /media/Will's Drive at startup.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus And USB Drive Weird Behavior

Jul 14, 2011

I am running Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty) with Gnome Classic (no effects) desktop. I have an external USB drive on which I have cloned my sda drive that contains my Ubuntu partition and an XP partition. Both of these partitions mount automatically. For some reason, Nautilus opens randomly on its own for each of these partitions. When this happens, two copies of Nautilus open; one for each of the partitions. I have not been able to discern any pattern for when nautilus opens. This actually began to happen in Maverick shortly before I upgraded to Natty. Any ideas on what the cause is and how I can stop this from happening?

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Crashes When Inserting Usb Flash Drive?

Dec 11, 2010

I am having some trouble with usb flash drive lately:when plugging in: all nautilus windows close all icons disappear from the desktop but reappear seconds later after a couple of seconds of high cpu usage I can open a new nautilus windows and the drive is properly mounted.I have apport enabled: once in a while there is apport running and trying to gather a report which cannot be sent because it is an assert failure.. once in a blue moon apport gives me the not-enough-memory error message (screenshot here) but I don't think it should need more than 400MB I had at that moment.dmesg gives this..:

Ubuntu :: External Hard Drive Within The Nautilus Browser?

Jun 8, 2011

I don't know why it's happening or what caused it, but just a few minutes ago it occurred that every time I unmount/power down my external hard drive from within the Nautilus browser, Ubuntu freezes and Caps Lock starts blinking, indicative of a kernel panic. It doesn't do this when I Safely Remove the drive from the right-click menu on the drive's desktop icon. Even stranger is that no other external device I've tried causes the panic. It only does this with this particular external hard drive and it's a repeatable error.

Why is this happening and how do I fix it? EDIT: To note, I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 with the kernel. Not Ubuntu 11.04.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Crashes When Reading External Hard Drive?

Ubuntu :: File Preview In Nautilus On 11.04 On Networked Home Drive

Aug 2, 2011

We have recently upgraded to ubuntu 11.04 64bit from 10.04 and 10.10 in a networked office in which our home directories are mounted on a server raid array. Ubuntu considers that the home directory is a local drive rather than on a networkWe have noticed that file preview are very very slow in 11.04 for pdf's and pictures in nautilus, causing a lag of around 10 seconds for each file. This can cause a problem for folders which hold multiple files which can be previewed. Preview worked fine in previous versions of ubuntu on the same machine, with the same network setup. Previewing of actual local files works faster, but is slower on 11.04, than previous versions.

Both the 10.10 and 11.04 systems are up to date with available updates (11.04 - and 2.30.1 on ubuntu 10)Obviously, there is a work around for this problem - turn off preview. But, it would be nice to turn it on as its a useful feature.

Debian Hardware :: Raid 1: Nautilus See Too Much Drive?

May 7, 2011

I installed Debian Squeeze using "dmraid=true" because I have an onboard RAID controller. Everything is fine except when I go into Nautilus I see, the raid array and the 2 disk inside the RAID array. This is a little confusing!

Is there a way to fix that? Is this only a bad config in fstab?

Fedora :: Disable Auto Open Nautilus When USB Drive Plugged?

Aug 4, 2011

In Fedora 15, when I plug a USB drive, Nautilus will automatically open and show whats inside of it. I'm working in a project where I have to plug and unplug USB drives many times, and Nautilus opening every time is really annoying. I tried to use gconf-edit and set the keys apps>nautilus>preferences>media_automount and media_automount_open to false, but it didn't work.

Ubuntu Networking :: Create A Writable (preferably Nautilus Setup) Network Share On External NTFS?drive?

Jul 22, 2010

So I have the strange task of trying to make something like I said above work in Lubuntu 10.04. But every time I do, the share is not accessible because none of the important permissions (other) can be set because its, well, NTFS in linux. And I know of no way to fix it.Is there an easy way, preferably with Nautilus since the person I am setting this up for isn't a computer expert, to setup this share so thats its accessible and writable by other computers on the network?

Ubuntu :: Shortcut To Access Sudo Nautilus (gksudo Nautilus) From The Current Window

Feb 11, 2011

Is it possible to change my current nautilus window to have sudo capabilities,? e.g. to delete locked files. It may be lazy but if it takes a lot of navigation then it would be handy to somehow activate sudo from the open window without the terminal command (gksudo nautilus) which always begins at root.

Ubuntu :: Network Drive Visible In Nautilus - Not In "Open File Dialog"

Apr 23, 2010

I have succesfully attached some networkdrives (Windowsshares actually) to Nautilus. It's possible to access these with Nautilus and the Open File Dialog of Open Office.

However .. The "Save To" in Google Chrome and "Open File" in Notecase are not showing these networkdrives. Is this a different browser? Is there somewhere somehow a setting to see the drives?

Ubuntu :: How To Change A Nautilus Icon (an Nautilus Action)

I've added a new Nautilus action and I'd like to use another icon that those provided in the nautilus item con list (see attachment).

But whatever image I try (some PNG or even SVG files) I can't get them to be displayed. It seems there is a very special format, size, type to match the Gnome/GTK+/Nautilus icon requirements...

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.

Ubuntu :: Multiple Drive Items (icons) In Nautilus - Storage (which Appears To Be Of "unknown Type" In The Properties)

Feb 26, 2011

I have a "Storage" partition in my hard drive which I have labeled as such and added to fstab. This is my fstab file:


The problem is that when I open up nautilus and click the Computer icon in the toolbar (which gives the fake computer:/// address) I see two items referring to my Storage partition:

* Storage (which appears to be of "unknown type" in the properties).
* 500 GB Hard Disk: Storage (which is the one that works).

Ubuntu One :: Says A Folder Is Sync'd, But It Isn't Listed?

Aug 21, 2010

I did some searching, but haven't found a good solution to this problem I'm having. While there are a lot of issues with syncing between my desktop and netbook (we'll get to them another time), I am really trying to get two folders from my desktop to sync to Ubuntu One. I followed the reinstall steps here a few times and it has almost fixed the problem.

My last issue is that my .mozilla folder won't sync at all. If I right click on it in Nautilus, I get a greyed out "stop syncing with Ubuntu One." I can't stop it and can't start it. If I do u1sdtool --list-folders, then this folder isn't shown. I've tried disconnecting, reconnecting, and a lot in between.My question is, is there a config file or something like that where maybe this .mozilla folder is still set up that I can just delete? Clearly, it thinks it's set up when it isn't and I'm not sure if there's somewhere on the filesystem that can be checked or cleared. One thing I did notice when I was going through the instructions above is that I don't have a .share folder and thus no /local/ubuntuone under that.
