Ubuntu :: Make Nautilus As File Manager?

Dec 13, 2010

I have, in fact, stated my problem correctly. I want to make Nautilus as the default File Manager in KDE. I use GNOME on other computers, and don't like the feel of the KDE file manager on my PC. I looked online but most "solutions" are for the other way round and in either case, didn't work for me.

I tried changing the 'inode/directory' file association to Nautilus but it didn't change anything. What can I do ? (I have GNOME as a DE here too .. But I would like to know how to change the association in KDE as well)

Ubuntu :: Nautilus File Manager Looks Strange In Lucid

May 7, 2010

I need some restoring my Nautilus File Manager back to its original state. I tried installing Elementary Nautilus but for some reason it was not working for me, so I uninstalled it but have been having an issue with Nautilus looking like its former self. Now Nautilus doesn't display the "tree" on the left, there are no back/forward icons, and generally looking strange.Here's a picture to showcase my issue:

[URL]

I would love to use Elementary Nautilus but can not get it as my default file manager. Since I can't do that I just want Nautilus (the one that comes shipped with Ubuntu) to look and act like it's supposed to.

Ubuntu :: Possible To Install Dropbox With Different File Manager Than Nautilus?

May 18, 2011

I would like to use DropBox, but I really don't want Nautilus on my system.I downloaded the source to compile, thinking it would allow me to use a different file browser, but unfortunately it seems they made it dependent on Nautilus.Is there a way to compile it using a different file browser (Thunar in this case)? And if not, is there an alternative to DropBox out there that works on multiple platforms?

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 :: Choose Nautilus File Manager Header Format?

Oct 31, 2010

Last night I had to re-install Ubuntu. Previously, the header of the file manager had been configured up with the three buttons on the right for icon/list/compact view (see 1st image below), whilst since re-installing, they appear with the drop-down menu instead (as per the 2nd image). How do you change between these two formats? My preference is for the first of these.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Access Network Shares From Nautilus File Manager

Oct 15, 2010

I'm running 64 bit Lucid on a HTPC that is networked with a Windows 7 64 bit laptop. Up until this morning, sharing media between these two worked fine. When I attempted to connect through Rhythmbox to play music, the computer couldn't find the files. I attempted to access the network through Nautilus and it was unable to mount the location. So I tried the Create Launcher command and created a link of the network on the desktop. I was prompted to login and it worked perfectly This has happened once before and the only way to fix it was to reinstall Ubuntu.I would very much like to avoid that if possible as the system is setup perfectly.

I wouldn't bother with the issue if it didn't prevent me from adding my music files to Rhythmbox. I have run findsmb as well as smbtree. Smbtree returned nothing and findsmb had a dotted line with nothing underneath. Nothing has been removed. I did install security updates this morning, but since it has happened before, I am more inclined to thing it is a bug or conflict somewhere.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Actions - This XML File Is Not A Valid Nautilus-actions Config File

Feb 18, 2010

I've been trying out Nautilus-actions (Gnome 2.28.4), but have been unable to import most config files from [url].

When I attempt to import an action, it complains:

Quote:

Can't parse file 'convert_flv_to_avi.schemas' as GConf schema description file!

This XML file is not a valid Nautilus-actions config file (missing keys: )

So far, the only one that has worked for me is "Move to custom folder" [url].

Ubuntu :: Make With Make File Yields Error - /usr/bin/javac: Cannot Execute Binary File

Nov 17, 2010

When I try to compile some Java code on Ubuntu 10.10 (kernel 2.6+) using make and a Makefile.

I get an error indicating that the make utility cannot execute the java compile command (javac).

The error reads: /bin/bash: line 6: .: /usr/local/jdk1.5.0_18/bin/javac: cannot execute binary file

I am executing make as root. I have enabled permissions on all directories in the path /usr/local/jdk1.5.0_18/bin/javac and on javac itself.

I get this error whether using a jdk installed via ubuntu apt-get, or whether I install the jdk myself. And I get it using either Java 1.5 or 1.6

My machine has an 80386 processor. I notice the make utility is built for i686-pc-linux-gnu

However, I can manually compile using javac.

I can compile calling javac from within a bash script.

I can compile using the java compiler gcj from the command line: gcj --main=HelloWorld HelloWorld.java -o HelloWorld.exe

But I cannot compile java code from the makefile. Any reasons why I might be getting this error?

Ubuntu :: How To Make Nautilus Faster

Jul 12, 2010

One of the most common tasks I perform is browsing for files. I have always wanted my file manager to be lightning fast. That is, I open it and it loads directories instantly. No waiting, just opening them right away. This remained always a wish, as in Windows and Ubuntu on a variety of machines I always see that it takes a little while for the program to load directories. I am not talking about folders with thousands of files or anything special. However, I have seen others who have Windows (XP in this case), and their Explorer opens right away. Browsing folders is very much instant.

Is there any way to achieve the same in Nautilus? The other computer is not very modern or super fast, at all.

I have a laptop with SSD drive which I hoped would speed up this process, but this is not the case. On both my laptop and desktop I often see the 'loading' symbol, and files often appear after the folder view has opened (they just appear all of a sudden). This happens with folders I rarely visit but also with folders I often open.

How are others' experiences? Can Nautilus be instant? Is this a configuration tweak or hardware issue?

Ubuntu :: Can't Make Nautilus Autoopen My CD / DVD - Sort It?

I can't have autorun of data or video DVDs and CDs in Lucid. The system simply just won't open the disk in Nautilus. It is such an annoyance that I can barely bear.
I've even added the CD and DVD in fstab, but no use. Since those assholes replaced HAL with DeviceKit, I have to open the removable media manually. I've set the behavior of Nautilus to browse media upon insertion but no use.

Ubuntu :: Make Nautilus Always Launch With - No-desktop Option?

Nov 5, 2010

If I am using LXDE or another non-Gnome desktop and want to use Nautilus as the file viewer it needs to be launched with the --no-desktop option (so nautilus does not load it's desktop image under the other DE).

I know there is a way to make it so whenever nautilus is launched it will not load the desktop (even if you do not pass the --no-desktop argument) but I do not recall how I did this last time! I believe it was a gconf value. Anyone know what this setting is/how I can accomplish what I am looking to do?

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)?

Fedora :: F13 - Make Location/address Bar In Nautilus Look Like A String?

May 31, 2010

In Fedora 12/11 there used to be a button in the Nautilus to the left of the address/location bar which would let me switch between two representation of location bar: 1) buttons 2) as string that I can type in.

In Fedora 13 I cannot get the same behaviour. The button is missing and location only shows up as a set of buttons.

I have looked in the settings of Nautilus, but couldn't find anything related to this. How do I get location bar to show up as a string where I can manually type the path?
