In Nautilus, I can find the share under Network which I want to mount. When I double-click on the desired folder, I was prompted for a username, domain and password. However, I could not log in; there was no error messages, but Nautilus kept prompting me for my username etc..It would seem like I've entered the wrong details, but I've used a Mac OS to access the share using the same wired network and I had no problems doing so.So what could be the problem? Am I missing some setting? Or is the Windows share setting denying access to Linux systems?
I have been looking into how to get Nautilus to emulate the windows "map network drive" feature.
I have found several howto's that use various command line utilities to try to do this, however they tend to be like trying to use a sledgehammer to fix small dents.
When I connect to a share server, Nautilus puts a directory on my desktop that only Nautilus seems to be able to see and use. I would like to be able to access this directory with non-Nautilus applications.
Besides having Ubuntu I also have Windows 7 and to keep data between the two I keep a separate partition. So far I have been automatically mounting this partition in /media by editing fstab. The partition shows up in Places and on Desktop. Now I have changed mount-point to be in /mnt and this works fine, the partition mounts. The problem is that it doesn't show up in Places nor on the Desktop. I have changed back the mount-point to /media and the partition shows up on the Desktop and in Places fine, but when the mount-point is changed it won't show up anymore.
so i'm having an issue when I'm plugging in my Canon 450D. I plug it in, the red activity light blinks and "Busy" is displayed on the LCD screen, but after about 30 seconds, it disappears, and all the while, it doesn't get mounted by Nautilus. I've checked Nautilus' media preferences, and verified this behaviour when set to "Auto mount" or "Ask me what to do". I assumed that it just meant that maybe it wasn't being detected by my laptop, but if I open Shotwell, it appears in the device pane to the left, but again, only for 30 seconds. Here's a shot of my message log:
Apr 9 20:20:12 wegonix kernel: [ 4883.781092] usb 1-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 11 Apr 9 20:20:41 wegonix kernel: [ 4912.775528] usb 1-5: USB disconnect, address 11
As you can see, my system sees it, but no application - other than Shotwell - sees this and i guess it consequently times out. I've yet to see whether any other USB drive does this, and i'll try my iphone in a bit. This used to work about 2 weeks ago...
I'm trying to find a way to auto-mount a couple of NTFS volumes at login (or even earlier if possible), not by editingfstab or running the (currently buggy for Maverick) ntfs-config tool, but by simulating the way that Nautilus mounts volumes when you click or double click on one. The reasons for this are not important(just to make things a little mysterious).So, I checked the output of syslog when I click on an unmounted volume in Nautilus. It seems very useful, but I can't make much out of it. So I need your help I need to make something like a script to do this thing at startup.

Gnome version 2.28.1 with kernel 2.6.31-14 on an Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic box.I'm wondering how usb drives, etc get automounted in gnome now days. Thought it might be fusermount, but no.Gnome-mount is not installed. Perhaps it is via AL or udev, but what commands control it? I've found posts that talk about using gnome-mount, but these are outdated as this package isn't even installed by default anymore.I would like to unmount certain volumes via the command line, but without having root privileges as gnome is doing by clicking in nautilus. I would like to do the equivalent from the command line.
Are there any command lines commands that will allow me to do this (not talking about pmount which is not installed)?Also, is there a way to prevent automounting of just certain devices, but not all? I have a USB with 7 different things on it (a "built-in" CD for some reason for windoz users, the original NTFS, and 5 linux partitions). I really only want one of the linux partitions (an XFS for DVD isos) to automount but not all the others. I would like not to have to disable ALL automounting as in: Code:
so tonight i put a pc game in to install with wine, and after a few seconds i checked my desktop to see if it was mounted. nothing was there so i went to main menu>places>computer and i get this message every time i try: 'Nautilus cannot handle "computer" locations' and nautilus just doesnt open. i can however, browse every other folder in my system except computer. i only just noticed this today, so i dont know how long its been like this, and i dont think i installed anything to mess it up. and im not sure why the cd isnt mounting, because yesterday i ripped an audio cd into rythmbox with no trouble.
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.
I attempted to install Nautilus Elementary...the results were not what I expected however. First of all, it doesn't seem to even have installed correctly, but thats not the main issue...after installing, Nautilus looks like this...
Just the last day or so, I've noticed a long pause when I boot my laptop, with lots of disk activity. dmesg says:
Why would there be a 15-second pause (during which the disk is slammed) between mounting root and mounting swap? During this time I see nothing but a blank purple screen, there are no cycling dots or text scroll. Is this normal and I'm just freaking out over nothing because there's no indicator of progress?

I am having permissions errors every time I try to mount a windows host. I have a linux server and all the windows computers can see that computer and its files, but we wanted to start backing up the linux machine to one of our other computers. so I tried to mount one of the computers. here is the sequence of events:
Code: $mount -t cifs //192.168.1.194/Admin$ /mnt/Anita-comp password: (I have no password so I left it blank) Mount error (13): Permission Denied I tried all sorts of passwords we use around the office and none of them worked.
I then decided to try mounting one of our other computers. this one looked like it worked fine. no error messages at all. (I left password blank) so I look in my filesystem and the mounted drive is not in the /mnt/Anita-comp file. What gives?
Got a Dell GX280, and it is not seeing any usb drives. The usb keyboard works fine, the usb wireless adapter works fine, and if I run "lsusb" the thumb drive is listed, but it does show up in nautilus. I reinstalled nautilus, but it didn't help. What else do I need to do to get it to show up in nautilus so I can copy files?
In Nautilus->Edit->Preferences->Preview everything is set to Always and the size for previews is set to any files under 100Mb of size.
Still I can't see any previews. I am trying to look at the icons inside usrshareicons but all I get is a little icon that looks like piece of paper with an analog clock on it.I gotta see the images without having to open image viewer every time.
Since a couple of days back mostly all the folders and files I had on my download directory are not visible in Nautilus. Some of them are still there, but the majority it's like vanished. The folder is where everything I download with Transmission goes into. The tricky thing is that all those files are visible through the terminal, pcman file manager or konqueror, but not Nautilus, which is very annoying. I've tried reinstalling Nautilus from Synaptic, checking the 'show hidden files' option, checking and changing files and folder permissions and I also checked that there's no hidden instance of Nautilus running. I have Ubuntu 10.04 (upgraded from a 9.10) and the files are on a ext4 drive. Nautilus version is 2.30.1
I have a USB hard drive for backups using rdiff-backup (/media/backups/). I tried to do a backup last night but rdiff-backup could not find the appropriate destination directory of the drive. Sure enough a ls of the drive could not find it. Odd thing is that it is all visible in nautilus! An umount and a (re) mount did not help, even a re-boot did not help.
Ubuntu 10.04 has nautilus 2.31, which has a couple of features i don't like:space bar doesn't open multiple folders, like ENTER does. Sometimes it's more comfortable to hit the space bar instead of the enter key. I could do this in fomer versions (ubuntu 8.10 and 9.04).when i copy folders or files which are called the same as the ones in the destination folder, the prompt to replace/merge has the options accept and skip, and if i want to do the same every time the soincidence of names takes place, y have to first tick "always do the same" and then click "replace", for example. In former versions of nautilus/ubuntu (8.10, 9.04 at least) the prompt had buttons replace-replace all-skip-skip all, so a single click could do the job.How can i go back to those versions of nautilus, while still using ubuntu 10.04?
I've been using Linux Ubuntu for about 2 months now, and this is an interesting error...Anyone know how to fix it?When I loaded up the past two times, I've had issues...I get the following series of message:Quote:Could not update ICEauthority file /home/atmarsden.ICEauthorityThere is a problem with the configuration server./usr/lib/libconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with status 256)Nautilus could not create the following required folders: /home/atmarsden/desktop, /home/atmarsden/nautilus.Before running Nautilus, please create these folders, or set permissions such that Nautilus can create them.Followed by a blank screen with just my background... screensavers worketh not, and Alt-F2 only seems to run terminal, no apps.Running an example app in terminal (Chrome):
I accidentially replaced default file manager Nautilus with Gnome Commander and now when browsing other hard drives or devices throught Places menu it opens in Gnome Commander. How can I revert to Nautilus?
I had been playing around with various Python scripts in order to add certain columns to Nautilus, in particular bitrate, length, artist and genre for information on mp3 files. Well, I got greedy and installed something I shouldn't have and now I have massive duplicate columns available, and checking them to be visible has no effect at all. I have lost all the information that would populate the aforementioned columns.
I went to the Configuration Editor, went to apps>nautilus>list view>default visible columns and deleted the extraneous columns. I also disabled all the pythons scripts I put in ~/.nautilus/python-extensions. The extra columns never go away, and, if checked, never make visible the named information. Here is a screencap.
