Ubuntu :: From KDE To Gnome: Setting Nautilus As Default?

Feb 14, 2011

I had KDE installed (kubuntu maverick), and moved to Gnome (to support screen dimming on my dell laptop).

Now, when I click on Places and anything (say Desktop), Krusader starts up (I set krusader to the default in KDE).

Where do I change this? I can't find the location in preferences to change this.

Software :: Thunar Accidentally Replaced Nautilus As Gnome's Default Window Manager

Feb 21, 2009

I was messing around with different GUI sessions, and I wanted to try XFCE. Well, I switched to XFCE for a session, and I played around in it. When I went back to a Gnome session, however, it appears that Thunar is now the default filesystem explorer.I get the Thunar explorer. I want the Nautilus explorer. How do I fix this issue?

Ubuntu Installation :: Adjust The Default Setting Via /etc/default/grub?

May 29, 2010

I have already had Vista installed on another drive and from what i've read on the webs you get to dualboot if you install ubuntu after vista. when i did install it (i installed on a blank hdd with no partitions, choosing the "erase entire disk" option since for some reason default option was attempting to eat a part of my windows 1 gb drive instead of using disk i specially made for it) and the grub 2 loaded for the first time, there was NO option to run vista. only 2 linux (normal and recovery) and 2 memtests. I've ran linux and went to google this. I found that i should add something to some config files in /etc/grub.d/From reading the readme file i understood i could add my own files that are named like NUMBER_SOMENAME and insert code into them. Because it said:Quote: For example, you can add an entry to boot another OS as01_otheros, 11_otheros, etc, depending on the position you want it to occupy inthe menu; and then adjust the default setting via /etc/default/grub. But then i found a file 40_custom that said:

exec tail -n +3 $0

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Nautilus Will Not Remember Default Action

May 28, 2010

I did a fresh install of 10.04 a couple of weeks ago, and all seemed well, but lately when I double-click on, say, an OpenOffice (.odt) file in Nautilus, I get the following message:The file '/home/zerubbabel/Documents/Teachings/Queue/2010.05.15-A02.odt' is not marked as executable. If this was downloaded or copied form an untrusted source, it may be dangerous to run. For more details, read about the executable bit.(The pop-up window title reads: "Blocked: wine start /unix"). I've repeatedly set the "Open with..." and checked "Remember this application...", but it doesn't "stick".

Ubuntu :: Gksudo Nautilus Changes Background To Default

Jun 24, 2010

gksudo nautilus sets the background to default (Because nautilus is rendering the desktop) I set the gconf key to stop it rendering the desktop, but this only affects the icons. How can I get it to give me back my background? Edit: Fixed the desktop (--no-desktop option on nautilus command) - need to find how to kill the nautilus process automatically when I close it.

Ubuntu :: Lost Default Icon Size In Nautilus?

May 28, 2011

some reason I lost my default icon sizes in Nautilus. This only appears to affect any graphic files like .jpg, .png, etc. that I keep in my "Pictures" folder. I also have this issue with video files that I keep in my "Video" folder.Currently I am running Ubuntu Natty and using the Ambiance theme that is customized with Faenznt icons. Nautilus is customized with Nautilus Elementary. Changing themes has no effect. The folders all appear normal and other icon file types appear normal, it's just my graphic d video files that are appearing small.Running dconf editor shows my icon setting is set to normal. I am enclosing a pic so you can see the folders display at a normal size, but the graphic files do not.

Ubuntu :: Make Nautilus Search In Current Directory By Default

May 14, 2010

I work on Ubuntu 10.04 with Gnome.When I open a directory, I can search with Ctrl-f (edited Ctrl-F instead of F3). However, the search starts in my home directory (the home directory is the default). That can be fixed by adding new criteria in the search results. However, I would like to change the default directory always to the directory or folder from which I start the search.How can I convince Nautilus to search by default for files and folder names in the current directory or folder (the one from which I start searching)?

Debian :: Nautilus Does Not Accept Changes To Default Application

May 21, 2010

I'm trying to get Nautilus to open avi files with VLC instead of Totem. This succeeded for two of the three computers I have Debian on, but not on my EeePC. I right click the file, click "Open with other application", select VLC, and check that the "always use this application" option is checked (it always is). Then I click OK and it opens the file with VLC. But it doesn't remember the change; if I try opening any avi file again, it'll go back to Totem.

Ubuntu :: Change Default Permissions Of Removable Media Mounted Via Nautilus?

May 2, 2010

behavior in 9.04:plugged in a disk, mounted it and it as readable to the world.this is intended because it is shared via samba.behavior in 10.04:the disks have 700, meaning, they are not readable by samba.this is a problem.this is the best solution I've found so far:http://www.mail-archive.com/ubuntu-u.../msg10951.htmlexcept, that the mentioned means to fix this are gone.(gconf-editor -> ..., storage and preferences -> removable media)after 3 hours of googleing and reading I'm rather upset about this bug.so please, if you are thinking of suggesting fixed entries in the fstab or anything else that will not work with every media that is plugged into this box, just close this tab.

Ubuntu :: Gnome-Do To Open Folders In Nautilus?

Mar 12, 2011

I rely heavily on Gnome-Do to open folders in Nautilus.

This worked just fine in Ubuntu Desktop. However, in Openbox it opens folders in Chromium.

This is annoying for two reasons:

One, obviously i would like to view the selected folders in Nautilus.

And, two, i would like to set Firefox 4 as the browser of choice when opening anything via Gnome-Do. It is set as my browser of choice in Preferred Applications.

I have searched for configuration files, but see no entry i could modify, and would not know where to begin writing my own commands.

I am sure many people must use Gnome-Do in Openbox. If you are one of them, did you encounter similar issues? If so, how did you fix them?

Ubuntu :: Setting GRUB Default Boot?

Jun 28, 2010

I'm trying to configure GRUB to boot XP preferentially- my wife insists. Having looked up the GRUB manual I see that I can set this using the default command.

The problem is, when I go to my grub command line default is not a recognized command. If I hit TAB for a list of commands, it isn't there.

I think I'm using some 0.9x version of GRUB, since the partitions etc seem to be numbered starting at 0, not 1.

While I'm at it, I was just going to play around and figure this out, but: the menu interface lists five versions of Ubuntu (all those weird kernel variations) then XP. So would XP be default 1 or default 5?
