Ubuntu :: Firefox Opens File Listing Instead Of Nautilus Opening File Listing

Jun 20, 2010

Firefox opens file listing instead of Nautilus opening file listing.When I access a folder via "Places" -> "Home Folder" or "Places" -> "Downloads", Firefox opens and list the contents of the directory.I have re-installed Nautilus, un-installed Firefox and then going to "Places" -> "Home Folder" or "Places" -> "Downloads" launches Nautilus and I can view the contents normally. Anybody else had this problem with Firefox ? Anybody know how to fix this Firefox problem ?Running Ubuntu Desktop 9.10 64bit.

Software :: NFS Share - Wrong File Listing?

Nov 5, 2010

I have the following strange problem on one of my redhat clients. It is mounting an nfs share from a server. When I do a ls -l on the mounted directory - I get a wrong (old) file listing.Mounting the same nfs share on other clients works fine.I already unmounted, restarted nfs, re-mounted - no change, still a wrong file listing. Looks like it is cached somewhere.Update: On the client that has this problem I created a file on the mounted share. I can see the new file in the listing on the client, but not on the server where this share is mounted from or other clients.

General :: DU Style Directory Listing With File Numbers

Sep 6, 2010

Is there a command to return a recursive listing of sub-directories and the number of files in them? I have found plenty of ways to give me the total number of files in a directory structure, but none that gives a list of the sub-directories with the number of files in them. "du" gives me a listing of directories with their sizes, but I couldn't find an option (or any other way) to give me the number of files as well. Ideally, I'd like to get list with "Size" "Files" "Dir name" - And the order of the columns doesn't matter. Is there a "simple" command line solution or do I need a shell script for that?

General :: Prevent A User From Seeing A File In A Directory Listing?

May 3, 2011

I have, for example, a folder called "MyFolder" and it contains 3 files: MyFile1, MyFile2, MyFile3. The only file that I do NOT want a particular user/group to even see that it exists is, for exmple, MyFile2.So, when they do a directory listing on MyFolder, they should only see MyFile1 and MyFile3. How can this be done in Linux? The important thing is that it is not just preventing them from "executing" MyFile2, but to prevent them from even knowing that it exists by not including it in a directory listing.This is a simpified example using one file, but in reality, I have lots of files and some of those that I want to block are also subfolders.It is very important for me to hide the existence of certain files/folders when the user does a directory listing. It's also important that the files stay in their current folder (that is, I can't use a workaround which requires moving all the files into a separate folder and then securing that folder).

Many years ago I was able to print a listing of bookmarks in Mozilla browser. I would like to do that again.

The problem is that I'm now using Firefox 3.6.12 and can't find anything in the menus to allow this. I've tried cut and paste from the organize bookmarks view but it doesn't work very well, loosing formatting.

Fedora :: "find" Lockup \ Opening Another Xterm Window And Killing The Listing Command?

Oct 12, 2009

I have a problem that I'm not sure how best to debug. About every other time when I boot my system, I get a condition where listing the files in /root locks up that xterm session.This can be cleared by opening another xterm window and killing the listing command. This happens on "ls -a", "find", "tar" and I think "stat" also. The locked up xterm echo's chararcters but does not respond to any control sequences. This is new with FC11.This has only been seen to happen for root. And once a system is booted with this problem it seems to persist until you get it booted without the problem.

Ubuntu :: Click On The File System Icon In The Launcher To Open A Nautilus Window The Window Opens, But Is Unresponsive?

Aug 8, 2011

My system boots, I login and am brought to my desktop. I click on the file system icon in the launcher to open a Nautilus window. The window opens, but is unresponsive (i.e., I can't move it, clicking on the icons does nothing, etc.). If I press the super key to get the dash and the press escape, the window becomes responsive again, just like normal.

If I open a folder in the window, the window becomes halfway unresponsive in that I can't move the window, but I can select more folders and toolbar icons. The top menu no longer appears at this point, and I can't access any of the system icons on the top right of the screen. Alt-F4 closes the window even if the close button doesn't work.As another example, suppose I open a Nautilus window and then a Chromium window. Both are immediately unresponsive. If I super-esc again, I can move the Chromium window around, and it seems to work normally. I can click on the Nautilus window, but it always stays greyed out. Even if I'm clicking on things in it, the Chromium window always has focus.

I had a similar experience to this with VLC and Chromium. After clicking around enough I eventually got it to the point where VLC apparently always had focus, but I couldn't access any of VLC's controls. Double clicking anywhere on the screen fullscreened the video, and that's all I could really do. Not even escape worked to bring it back.I can usually press super to get the dash and Alt-F2 to get a command prompt. Also Alt-Shift-T seems to usually work to bring up a working Terminal (at least one that accepts commands, even if I can't move the window).Does anyone have any ideas on what might be causing this? The behavior is highly unpredictable and extremely frustrating. I should note that key commands don't always work, even though they seem to in my examples. So I don't think it's just a mouse issue.

Fedora :: Firefox Not Opening CSV File

Oct 31, 2009

I am trying to use Firefox to open a *.csv file from a download button on a Web page. The download button would open a dialog that offers me to choose to either open the file with Open Office Calc or save the file. I would like to open it on the fly. But an error comes up that reads:
/tmp/HIST1031-4.csv could not be opened, because the associated helper application does not exist. Change the association in your preferences.
The helper application in Firefox's Edit > Preferences is Open Office Calc. I checked in /usr/lib/openoffice.org3/program/, and found the script for scalc.

Ubuntu :: Doesn't Appear On GRUB Listing?

Aug 9, 2010

I have an old Windows XP Media Centre 2005 computer. My sister is the primary user of the computer and she's always downloading viruses and stuff on it so I decided to clean it up a bit and install Ubuntu via Wubi so we could use something that was harder to screw up, easier to use, and faster. I downloaded the iso of Lucid and ran Wubi.The installation worked fine (with the exception of that annoying "no disk" pyrun.exe error, which I had to keep clicking cancel to get out of). I restarted the computer, selected Ubuntu, and Lucid began to install and showed that very well-presented slideshow of Ubuntu's features. It finished, told me to reboot my computer and all seemed well until it reached the boot menu.

When it comes up to XP's boot selector, it gives me the standard list - pick between XP Media Centre and Ubuntu. I selected Ubuntu. Then, it brings me to the GRUB menu. Except, there's no Ubuntu options, just "Dell Recovery Partition" and "Windows XP." I'm positive that Dell Recovery Partition is the factory restore thing since I've used it before, but selecting Windows XP brings be back to XP's OS chooser. It's just an infinite loop until you choose XP from its own OS list.I'm not sure if this has anything to do with it, but a "skip" button appeared on the installation near the end when it didn't appear to be doing anything, so I clicked it. Would that have affected the install?

I've already googled this problem and I've only come across one thread with this problem, and it was from 2 months ago and didn't seem to have a clear resolution. This problem is pretty depressing considering I've used Wubi on two other computers and never ran into any trouble.Also, I would dual boot but I see no problem with using Wubi since it saves a lot of trouble and there's 95% less chance of breaking something (I've been using it for a month or so on my Dell laptop since my preinstalled Windows Vista KSOD'd and I haven't ran into any complications). Plus, I don't have any blank disks or USBs laying around and I'm not waiting 2 months to get a Ubuntu CD.

Ubuntu :: 9.1 With Samba - Deny Directory Listing

Mar 19, 2010

I have set up Ubuntu 9.1 with Samba etc. as a web server. The files are in /var/www and are shared through Samba as web. The root directory and sub directories have index.htm files in them but unfortunately except for the root directory users can see the directory listing rather than the directory automatically producing index.htm. This is obviously causing security problems. How to prevent directory browsing by users coming into the server over the internet by a redirect URL from another site. E.g. [URL] where bigwebsite is a domain registered with a change ip server because I have a service which dynamically allocates an IP Address.

Ubuntu :: Stopped Listing Windows XP Partition?

Jan 18, 2011

I've noticed that Ubuntu stopped listing my Windows XP partition in my Places menu like it used to but let it go because it wasn't something I needed to access often. But now I'm discovering that Ubuntu is also not mounting my DVD drive when I put a CD in, nor my USB flash drive that I just reformatted to NTFS using gparted within Ubuntu, nor does any other external USB drive. I don't know how to start with troubleshooting the cause.

Ubuntu :: Karmic Listing And Disabling Services Via CLI?

Mar 12, 2010

I have used many other distros and just recently started using the Debian based distro Ubuntu. I am used to disabling services using chkconfig. I read this article on how to disable services using

PHP Code:
update-rc.d -f proftpd remove 

to disable features but how does one list the services that are running via the CLI like with my CentOS box I run chkconfig --list |grep n and that will show me all that is running on all services so how does one do this with Debian or Ubuntu?

Fedora :: USB Stick Listing - Sdb Linked To Sda

Jul 19, 2011

I've plugged a usb stick into my server.
cat /proc/partitions
8 0 1981440 sda
8 1 990720 sda1
8 2 436288 sda2

However when I do:
ls /dev/sd*

I'm sure I got no other devices connected that /dev/sdb would point to
cd /sys/block/sda
[root@footy sda]# ll
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Jul 18 16:27 device ->
[root@footy sda]# cd /sys/block/sdb
[root@footy sdb]# ll
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Jul 18 16:27 device ->

What does this imply, sdb linked to sda?

General :: Possible To 'hide' A Process From The Listing Of `ps` Or `top`?

Oct 13, 2010

I presume that if this is possible it would need to be done as root (or as a user who shares root's UID of 0).How can a process be launched so that it does not show up in a ps aux or ps ef or top listing if the command is run by non-root?Is this even possible?The distributions I typically run are RHEL/CentOS and Ubuntu - so if there is a distro-specific answer, that's ok, too.

General :: Hide A User From The Who Listing?

Sep 3, 2011

Is it possible for a non-root user to hide themselves from the output of who/w, so that they can be logged in without other users seeing it? I think that the file /var/run/utmp might have something to do with this, but it's not writeable by non-root users (permission 644). I'm fairly certain that this can be done by a non-privileged user (because someone told me that they were able to do so), but I don't know how they did it and can't ask them right now.

General :: Listing All Linked Files

Jan 21, 2010

I can't seem to find a way to do this, so maybe it's not actually possible, but I was wondering if there was a way to list all files that link to a file.

For example.

touch a
ln a b
ln a c

I want to find out what files link to a (not symlinks, mind you), assuming that this is more complicated (they are spread around to different directories).

I kind of understand about the filesystem storing links in one area and data in another, so I understand it probably takes more work to find a link from a file location than the other way around.

General :: Listing Filenames Without The Directories?

Oct 3, 2010

list filenames one-per-line, in BASH without including directories. I think he was either wrong or making that up. There is a way to list just the names and one per line but there aren't any arguments I can find that can be used to exclude directories.


IFS=', '; files=`ls -m`; for i in $files; do if [ -f $i ]; then echo $i; fi; done That does only use ls as a command, however he said his GSI thought he could do it without all that...

Would I be correct in assuming that I save my rule as

N: Name="Macintosh mouse button emulation"
P: Phys=


I have followed howtos as listed here, here, and here. Am I not pointing my mouse.rules to the correct location? Maybe my issue is that I followed howtos from varied sources.the mouse.rules i put in /etc/udev/rules.d/mouse.rules had no effect.
