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)?

Ubuntu :: Search Based On Nautilus File Type?

Aug 10, 2010

Is there any application that will let me restrict search results, by, for example, whether it is a plain text document or a jpeg image (not by extension, but the same way nautilus knows if something is a jpeg even if it doesn't have an extension)?It would be nice to have an easy way to search for, e.g., just images, just videos, or just music without relying on file extensions.

Debian Multimedia :: File Search In Nautilus Hangs

Jun 26, 2014

As of today I can't seem to use the search feature of Nautilus (in GNOME 3). Say I open my home folder and press Ctrl-F to get the search bar. Whatever I type, as soon as I stop typing and Nautilus should start the search process, it just freezes completely. The cursor stops blinking and that's it, all I can do is run `killall nautilus` from a terminal. According to the System Monitor nothing is really using CPU.

Ubuntu :: Removing A Directory From The File Search Menu?

Sep 9, 2010

When I search using Places -> Search for Files..., there is an extra directory that shows up in the "Look in folder:" menu. This directory (jim) is unwanted and doesn't appear in the general Gnome menus (such as Places). The attached image of a screenshot shows what I mean.

I cannot figure out how to remove it in the search menu. Perhaps it was put there because I frequently search in that directory. Whatever the case, I'd like to get rid of it. I understand that this isn't the biggest computer problem ever posted in a forum. Nonetheless, I'd really like to hear how to remove that blasted directory.

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:


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.

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 Copy File/directory Path Should Not Put "file://" Prefix

Dec 27, 2010

I really missed the old Ubuntu file/dir. copying feature. When I copied in nautilus file explorer and paste into a terminal or text editor, I got the exact path (eg. /home/user/abc.txt), but when coming the Ubuntu 10.04, it added some "file://" prefix to the actual path (eg. file:///home/user/abc.txt), and I always had to manually delete the "file://" prefix. I don't see clearly that we need to place "file://" in front of the actual path (maybe just in the case we want to put the path in an Internet browser?). Wish this reversed back.

Ubuntu :: Search In Nautilus Elementary?

Oct 18, 2010

Since update to 10.10 I seriously cannot figure out how to do a normal file/folder search. When I search a file it only shows the last day, month, etc of Zeitgeist.

Not only that but I cannot narrow a search down to a specific folder. I go to Pictures folder, hit Ctrl+F, search term = ground, it no longer just searches the Pictures folder, and I'm looking at 0 results when there is a file named ground.jpg in my Pictures folder..

Ubuntu :: USB Shared Drive - Corrupted Directory

Mar 12, 2010

This is a USB shared drive, with an ext3 partition. The partition is located at /dev/sdb1. I use Samba to share /media/tiga1000/samba/public, and everyone on the network can add/delete files to it. Specifically, this is our media drive, and we upload a lot of pictures to it, since me and my sister are amateur photographers. Under /public/images/camera_pictures/2010, I have 3 directories. 01_january, 02_february, and 03_march. The directory that has been corrupted is 03_march, and when I say corrupted, I mean that I cannot open it. It acts as a unknown file type that can't be opened.

Here is the file properties of it:
drsmall@mycroft:/media/tiga1000/samba/public/images/camera_pictures/2010$ ls -lah
total 960K
drwxr-xr-x 4 nobody nogroup 4.0K 2010-03-11 21:22 .
drwxr-xr-x 5 nobody nogroup 4.0K 2010-02-18 20:19 ..
drwxr-xr-x 14 nobody nogroup 4.0K 2010-01-31 11:57 01_january
drwxr-xr-x 10 nobody nogroup 4.0K 2010-02-23 15:47 02_february
-r--r--r-- 1 nobody nogroup 938K 2010-03-11 15:46 03_march

How I should go about recovering it. Somehow it lost it's directory switch. Should I unmount the drive and run fsck on it? I would like to be able to recover these images, if it is at least possible!

Ubuntu :: Directory Is Corrupted During A Cold-start Reboot

Jul 3, 2010

I urgently need expert assistance. During a cold-start reboot, something corrupted my / directory making it impossible to access much of anything. I was able to log into a recovery console and do "ls /" which shows most of the critical directories although "media" is missing. However attempting to "ls /home" gets the "no such file or directory" error message, as do attempts to ls most of the others. Doing "ls -l /" gets one item listed, followed by a single record out of /var/log/syslog, then nothing at all.

Attempting a normal login (I've disabled the quiet and splash options, so I see all the startup messages) gets to doing fsck on the swap partition, and that stalls out at 14% complete. The fsck on the root partition completed okay, apparently. This machine is my router, firewall, FTP server, and also hosts VirtualBox VMs that contain all of my customer support tools. The VMs themselves are partially backed up on another box, fortunately, but it took me a couple of months to get the failed box configured properly so if possible I need to recover it. For lack of space, I've never been able to do a full backup of it -- and permissions have foiled portions of all my other backup attempts on it.

Complicating matters is the fact that I have a moderately large data recovery job scheduled to arrive this evening (July 3) to be done while the customer's business is shut down for the holiday. Without the FTP server I'm unable to receive the files, which will total from 100 to 200 MB in all. Is it likely that testdisk may be able to rebuild the borked main root directory, if run from a live CD? The system is Hardy LTS 8.04.4, with 3 GB of RAM and a 250 GB SATA drive. I'm posting this from my WinXP laptop, which doesn't get along with my LAN so connects from a different router than the one that's down.
