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 :: 9.10 - Any Way To Unhide Menu Toolbar In Nautilus

Mar 15, 2010

I just recently installed Nautilus, or upgraded, from whatever was pre-installed with Ubuntu 9.10. I accidentally clicked Hide Menu toolbar, which apparently in this, there's no way to unhide it. The only thing showing now is the Sidebar, and I don't know how to get any of the toolbars back. [URL]

Ubuntu :: Custom Launchers On Nautilus Toolbar?

Apr 16, 2011

i have a question about customising the toolbar in the file explorer, which i think is called nautilus. i was able to add a few buttons by hacking about in /usr/share/nautilus/ui/nautilus-navigation-window-ui.xml ..but they were already defined actions. what i would really like to add is custom launchers. i have whipped up a python script that will foo and bar a glob of files in a directory, which i can pass as an argument to the script, and i would like this to be a toolbar button so i can just click an icon up there. so the launcher would need to know what directory is open in the tab which is in focus, or alternatively be able to launch from that directory as current working directory and then i can dig out the path in python. a keyboard shortcut for the launcher would be nice too

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?

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 :: Nautilus Location Bar - Switch To Text Mode Button Missing

Jul 1, 2010

I just installed 10.04 on a computer I put together, I noticed the button that allows you to switch back and forth to the 'text entry mode' on the nautilus location bar is missing. Is there a way to get this back? I found you can use CTRL+L or use gconf-editor to switch but I used that button quite a bit and want to find a way to get it back.

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 A File To A Nautilus Window With Folders In List View?

Nov 23, 2010

I don't know if this is a known issue, but when I want to copy/move a file to a folder containing lots of sub-folder displayed as list, I can't do a simple drag&drop, because there is no empty space to move this file. It will always go into one of the sub-folders. So obviously I have to go up one folder or to change view from list to Icon or Compact. Is it a known issue? Is there a solution? (Using GNOME nautilus 2.30.1)

OpenSUSE :: Nautilus Address Bar Doesn't Show Filesystem Path / Text Location Bar

I have openSUSE 11.3 Gnome installed. The nautilus address bar shows the "Button Bar" and if I press Ctrl+L it swaps to the "Text Location Bar". The Text Location bar is where you see the full path to the directory that you're viewing.But I can't set the default addressing to the Text Location Bar.What else should I do to get the text location bar (i.e. the full path) to be the default view in the address bar?

Fedora :: Fc14 Amd64 Gnome - Hiding Hidden Files In Dolphin And Showing Full Location In Nautilus?

Apr 4, 2011

Trying the various settings (and noticing ubuntu gnome users recently had the same exact OPPOSITE problem -- they can't SHOW hidden files in dolphin) to hide my hidden files in dolphin is not working. The settings are saved OK, but those damn (ending in tilde, ie "~") files do NOT ever hide! I even see the correct little green recycling symbol on them, indicating they're identified as such, but no actual hiding goes on..

Nautilus, which I've used before (but have grown tired of, and was looking forward to dolphin), also has a weird issue that seems to have appeared with FC13 (I'd been using FC12 'til now mostly because of this) - there's no way (AFAIK) to tell it to show the location; to see it, you have to click Go->Location each time. Previously I could set it to print out the whole file or server path and it would stay that way when I opened new windows.. This is on fresh install & update.. kernel is

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

When I attempt to import an action, it complains:


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 :: Gnome / Metacity / X After Lucid Upgrade - No Toolbar - Couldn't Move / Resize / Close

May 2, 2010

Gateway box
P4 3GHz processor
one 40 GB Western Digital IDE Hard drive
one 500 GB Western Digital IDE Hard drive
NVidia-GeForce FX 5200 DDR 128MB Video Card
Hauppauge HVR-1600 Tuner Card (with accompanying remote of unknown model #)
Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Card

Ran Lucid upgrade on a mythbuntu box on Friday. On startup, though, the desktop looked quite odd - in fact, I didn't even know it was my desktop at first. It was a small white terminal 'window' in the upper left corner of a black screen. My mouse was responsive, because I had to mouse over the 'window' before I could type. I say 'window' because it had no toolbar, and I couldn't move, resize, or close it. No top or bottom panels on Gnome. it was so unrecognizable I didn't initially think it was my desktop. I assumed it was nvidia drivers, and spent a long time making sure they were installed - they do not seem to be the problem. After searching forums/internets, found several pages telling people to rename/move/delete .gnome, .gnome2, etc and gnome should revert to default. Problem persists. I can open gedit or firefox by running from command line, but when I close those windows, the image of those windows remain as part of the background.....

Ubuntu :: How To Move The Swap Location

can you move your swap to a new location after a install and if it is possible will it give any kind of performance boost if it is moved to a separate hard drive? I did this on my XP machine and it made a pretty big difference in over all speed of the machine and wanted to try this on my Ubuntu machine, assuming it will even make and difference in performances.
