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:


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 :: Nautilus-actions Path Set Incorrectly

Jul 16, 2010

I am installing lucid, have installed nautilus-actions, and am trying to install a "Search for file in the active folder" function into nautilus-actions.. I brought up Nautilus Actions Configuration under System>Preferences and did the following:

Under Action tab
Checked Display item in selection context menu
Unchecked Display item in location context menu
Label: Search For File In Active Folder


when I right click a folder and select "Search For File in Active Folder, it brings up the search tool, but the folder setting is always my home folder--not the active folder. Of course I can change the folder to be searched, but the point was to search in the active folder. I got this Search For File in Active Folder function from an Internet site that I don't remember. However, I thought --path=%M would get me the active folder.

General :: Nautilus-actions 3.0 And Desktop Menu

May 8, 2010

I'm using gnome and I'm trying to add custom actions to the right-click on desktop menu. I've read that this can be done using nautilus-actions, but all the references I've found explain it for older versions of nautilus-actions.

If I create an action (a firefox launcher, for example) and don't add any special conditions for it to show up, it shows when I right-click anything in nautilus, but not on the desktop.

I know it's possible since nautilus-open-terminal shows up on the desktop menu.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Actions Error - Duplicate Object ID

Ubuntu :: Edit Existing Right Click Menu With Nautilus Actions

Feb 26, 2011

I installed nautilus-actions in order to edit the right-click menu when I click on pictures. All tutorials I read deal with adding custom entries to the right-click menu. But what I want to do, is to edit the present nautilus right click menu. In particular, I have installed nautilus-batch-rename, which comes in english. I want to translate the right-click entry "Rename files..." to German, since my system language is German, too. I already managed to translate the batch-rename pop-up program entries after clicking "rename files..." by editing nautilus-batch-rename.glade but I would love to translate "rename files..." as well.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Actions 3.0.5 - Natty Missing Addons In Context Menu

Apr 30, 2011

Upon a fresh installation of Ubuntu Natty, I have noticed only a couple of my nautilus-actions are actually showing up in the context menu. On further review, I noticed Nautilus-actions has changed a lot, and I cannot seem to figure out why most of my actions are not showing up. It seems no matter what I change, they will not show up. Some of the ones I cannot seem to get up are 'Wipe' commands and several of my homemade ones that worked flawlessly in past Ubuntu versions, such as Chown, Make Executable, Renamer, among others. Oddly, two of them work just fine, Search Here and Open Root Nautilus. I am not sure why these work, while the others do not, other than they are not used by selecting item(s)/folders. Also, I noticed there is a change with the parameters, in which now all of them use %F instead of %M. Does anybody know why that is, and/or does it really matter. FYI, I am using the classic version, not Unity as my desktop.

Debian :: Use File Manager Actions With Root Permissions?

Jul 30, 2011

If I use the GUI File Manager I ofter get stuck because I need root permissions to write or delete some file or directory. I realize I can drop down to Terminal and do either a sudo or change the permissions of a particular file, but these are several extra steps. Is there a way I can perform root actions on files using File Manager/Browser? Or is there an alternative file manager program I can explore that is more flexible? I am currently using Debian 6.01a installed from the Live CD, Nautilus 2.30.1.

Networking :: Error: Can't Load Actions File '/etc/privoxy/match-all.action': Invalid Line (9): { +standard.Cautious }

Apr 26, 2011

Every time I try to set to standard.(cautious|medium|advanced) I get Apr 26 17:20:59.960 7f7faff15700 Fatal error: can't load actions file '/etc/privoxy/match-all.action': invalid line (9): { +standard.Cautious } /

or something similar. No additional help is available in the docs. So i try to use http://p.p (i.e. config.privoxy.org), and click on [URL]... expecting to get the three mode buttons. It just returns to p.p.

I already set the three edit vars to allow remote editing etc.So I looked in the top 15 Google hits for "Privoxy standard.Cautious". Apparently, nobody else knows how to do this either even tried launching firefox in root. but I'm getting kind-of frustrated with the writers/maintainers of Privoxy 3.

Ubuntu Servers :: Webdav + Nautilus = Forbidden - DON'T Have "Options Indexes" In Apache Config File When Try To Access Via Firefox

Feb 20, 2010

I've installed webdav on my server and I can access it fine through cadaver. However, when I try to access it via nautilus, I get Forbidden. It is NOT secured (SSL). When I try to access it via firefox, I get an error since I DO NOT have "Options Indexes" in my apache config file. If I add this option in, then I can browse the root direction and webdav folder via firefox, but still not from nautilus. what other information you need. I've googled and searched the forums for awhile, but not "solutions" I found have worked for me. I want the webdav folder to just be a single folder within the direction, so this is how I have my config file setup:


As a side-note...when I included "Option Indexes", it allowed me to view the passwd.dav file from firefox!That doesn't seem very good...

General :: Searching Content Of The File Using File Browser Nautilus?

May 27, 2011

I'm using rhel6. Using File Browser Nautilus 2.28.4 I could easily locate any file I'm interested in by it name. I'd like to use this File Browser to locate the file name based on it content e.g. based on some word in the text file. It doesn't work for me that way ... My question: does Nautilus support the search of file based on it content or only based on the name of the file itself?

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 :: More Advanced File Browser Than Nautilus?

Jun 12, 2010

Is there an alternative to Nautilus file browser? I mean a file browser which offers out of-the-box (!) more features and where I don't have to install such add-ons like nautilus-actions separately and defined some commands which should obviously be built-in.

Ubuntu :: Any Other File Managers For OS Other Than Dolphin And Nautilus

Sep 29, 2010

I was wondering is there were any other file managers for Ubuntu other than nautilus and dolphin, And it has to have a GUI, I like nautilus, but I cant stand the way it's tabs are now (compared to how they were in karmic) also nautilus is a little slow for my liking, dolphins tabs are fine, but I use gnome and it looks terrible outside of KDE.

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 :: No Nautilus File Dialogue Window In Ooo 3.3?

Jan 29, 2011

I just upgraded from Ooo 2.4 to Ooo 3.3, running it on Hardy. Everything seems to work fine, except for the dialogue window to open / save files.

In the previous version of Ooo I worked with, files were opened and saved by Nautilus. Now Ooo uses a different file manager which I don't like, because I can't jump quickly to my favourite maps and it's harder to navigate through my files. It has to be easy to have Nautilus again opening files, but I just can't find out how.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Ignores File Associations?

Apr 19, 2011

I have my default text files (also source codes etc.) associated with gedit (checked with ubuntu tweak).However, nautilus tries it to open with some "notepad" - dunno what it is I don't even have such a program. Files are OK, opening them directly from gedit or vim is fine.Some weird things:- nautilus correctly displays gedit icon- I have dualboot system with windows 7 and notepad command looks like it came from "there"- when I click on open with -> gedit, file is correctly open. However this option is not remembered by nautilus (even though I checked it as always open with ...)- nautilus (after clicking on open with) also suggest to use some "iexplore" command, I totally don't have idea where that came from Any suggestions? I really don't feel like using another file manager, but opening text files is pretty elementeray action and should work properly

Software :: KDE/Nautilus File Associations?

Jan 4, 2010

I know Dolphin/Konqueror is the manager of choice while in KDE, but I prefer Nautilus, mostly because I'm used to it. If I launch either a pure Openbox or Gnome session, Nautilus works perfectly fine. If I launch a KDE or KDE/Openbox session, Nautilus seems to 'forget' all the file associations for... well, pretty much everything. Thumbnail image previews and the mouse-over playing of audio files also seems to have stopped working, though these I can live without.

I looked into how Openbox handles it, and it seems to be that it launches 'Gnome services' to allow it, but I've not found exactly what those are, or how to launch them within KDE to fix Nautilus.

This is on Debian Lenny, with the KDE 4.3 repository containing the backport for Lenny enabled.

Ubuntu :: Translate GUI Actions To CL Code?

Jul 27, 2010

The main thing I want to know is: how to translate my GUI actions into command-line code. I want to know if there is a command that outputs all the commands being made by interaction with my GUI.Say, for example that I type this command and then open a file, the terminal would then print: "gnome-open /{path to file}".(The reason I ask is because I need to know a command to open with a non-default program. I have downloaded MiniCopier, so I want to add a launcher for it to my panel, by figuring out the code to launch it, but the default app to open ".jar" files is archive manager, rather than Java, so "gnome-open" doesn't do the trick. I've even changed the default to Java and still "gnome-open" uses archive manager, while double-clicking will use the new default=java. Weird...)

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.

Ubuntu Servers :: Gedit / Nautilus And SSH File Saving?

# sudo chmod -R 770 /var/www
# sudo chmod -R g+s /var/www

I have added the user "user" to www-data group. Now I connect using ssh as user "user" to my server with nautilus. When I copy files using nautilus file get the group permission 'www-data' as they should. But if I edit a file using Gedit and save it, the file's group get changed to "user" group ?

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.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Highlights All File Including Extension?

Nov 10, 2010

At the moment, when I rename a file in Nautilus it highlights the full file name including the file extension. How can I make it only rename the first part of the file and ignore the extension (as it always did)? The odd thing is that if I rename a file on the Desktop directory, it does not highlight the extension.
