Well I'll start off with the recent changes I've made. I have three hard drives in my PC, two of which are formated NTFS. I recently installed Storage Device Manager and changed a few options around so they auto-mount of start up. Well when I did this, and wanted to delete files off those drives, I suddenly was being promoted that I must delete them permanently or not all at (wouldn't go into the trash)
I added the lines to FSTAB: uid=1000,gid=1000 0 1
So for example my secondary drive is:
And also added .Trash-1000 folders in each of the two NTFS drives.
When I delete items off one of the two NTFS disks they go to the trash... I don't get the "delete forever" prompt and I can actually see them in the trash bin.
But when I empty the trash the icon remains that of the "full" trash, despite when I open it there being no trash in it.
often we need to add attachments to things, like adding a picture to a gmail when composing or to add a picture to a document. When I try to do this, nautilus shows only folders. It shows all the folders I would expect to see but none of these folders actually contain documents. If I navigate using places and open folders of course all my files are there, I just cant see them when trying to insert a file. Why might that be? Does anyone know?
I notice the "select which types of file to show" pulldown is empty - whats happened?
I figured out how to give folders the icon of my choosing (say, by digging through to /usr/share/icons/Humanity/places).
But, if I drag my newly decorated folder to the side pane so I can have easy access to it, it becomes an ordinary folder icon again.
I've looked through the options in gconf-editor for Nautilus, and there does not seem to be an obvious fix there. It should be doable, because if you drag, say, the Music or Photos folder to the side pane it maintains its custom icon.
How can I keep my chosen icon on a folder when I bring it to the side pane?
Can someone please tell me if there is a way to have Nautilus open with the extra pane by default? I use it quite often and would like it to open that way. I have been searching but seem to only find fixes for Gnome on Jaunty and earlier versions. Bill
I have a compaq laptop with a hard disk separated in three partitions:Partition 1: Ubuntu 9.04Partition 2: Windows XPPartition 3: DataI usually work 95% of my time with Ubuntu, but store all my data in the data partition, so the information is always available no matter if I work under Windows or Ubuntu.The system has been working perfectly well for several months, but a couple of weeks ago I detected that some subfolders are shown as empty, but I know that there are several files on them (mostly pdf files document-scanned). When I use windows, all the files are shown correctly. In other folders, the system shows some files, but not all of them. (again mostly PDFs are not shown).My Ubuntu system is fully updated. The data partition is in NTFS format. Linux is EXT4. Windows is NTFS again.I would appreciate to know if any of you guys have detected a similar problem and if so, how to solve it.
After starting up today, I noticed that nautilus has suddenly become quite minimalistic (see screenshot). Additionally, each folder opens in a new window (didn't before) and turns gray when it is opened. It looks the same running as root (except not themed, of course).
When I load the disk I can view my backup drive properly but when I try to view my working drive it shows it as being empty. I also noticed that I had a 1 mg unallocated partition at the beginning followed by my ubuntu partition.
I then ran gparted in terminal and it did show the partition as having my system on it but I am not able to perform any tasks. No moving or resizing.
Lucid 10.04 distro. On an ext usb hd I have 250Ǵ info in 6 directories. All directories are visible in terminal mode mod 755. All directories are visible in nautilus, all files are visible except in one directories which contains 200gig of videos.A file search shows all in all directories. All files can be opened mv, cp etc. I can move a file from this directory to another and all is well.In my Debian 5.05 distro with the same hd and directories etc, this problem does not occur.
I just had a bad experience with a server, and now i have a 17GB lost+found. It appears a lot of the stuff in there are folders which are empty. Since those really serve no purpose as far as recovering data from what I can tell, is there a slick way to delete just the empty folders from my /data/lost+found folder, leaving me with just the stuff I truly need to look through?
I'm on Debian 6.0 and 4 TB of HDD Compaq Presario 9000
My problem is all of a sudden get a message on deleting files that the trashcan has reached its full capacity and needs to be emptied manually. After emptying the trashcan in Dolphin I still can't delete the files I want and get the same message again and again. I have shut down the computer before, but today that didn't seem to help at all. Also it seems a bit drastic to shut down the machine everytime this happens. Is there perhaps another 'manual' way of emptying the trashcan? I have found a post recommending to rm -in my case- the directory in question in the terminal, which worked, but it doesn't solve the trashcan problem.
I've been getting this error message:"The configuration defaults for GNOME Power Manager have not been installed correctly. Please contact your computer administrator."a few times, and it turns out to be because of low disk space. No worry, I empty the trash uninstall unneeded programs and clean out the downloads folder that filled up my disk. And all is ok. But not this time.Since I can't use X, I delete stuff from the terminal, and also make sure to clean out the .Trash in both /home and /root. But still the disk is full. I delete more stuff, but it doesn't even seem to go to .Trash. It disappears, but no more disk space.
I have 2 drives formatted NTFS, which I'm mounting with /etc/fstab to ~/Movies/ and ~/Music/ and an EXT4 partition on my primary drive for games, mounted to ~/Roms/ and I would like for these drives to NOT show up in the side panel of nautilus.
I've been doing some looking around, and what I've found so far is that supposedly if you mount a partition/drive somewhere besides /media/ nautilus will ignore it. I'm finding this not to be the case, and it's driving me bonkers. here's my fstab:
Code: # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier # for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name # devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
I have a bunch of NTFS externals set up as samba shares on Linux Mint and they'll work just perfectly, but after a while they will stop functioning and the folders will be empty. It fixes itself if I restart my computer but only for a little while. This happens whether i access them locally or over the network through samba. I don't want to set the as ext3/4 because I need to access on windows from time to time (i'm dual booting) and I don't want to set them as fat32 because they I have files over the filesize limit on there.
I created some .tar.gz archives, and later discovered that the archives include their mount points and drives as empty folders. How can I avoid that happening in the future? I suppose I did something wrong when creating the archives. I mean, what is the point of the archives having empty folders that represent the mount points and drives of the archived data?
Using Fedora 14 with Gnome 2.3 Desktop utilizing Compiz and Emerald theme manager. When I empty the trash, the icon is still the FULL Trash icon. I tried using different Emerald Themes, and different Icon sets, but still the Trash Icon stays full. I checked the trash folder in $HOME/.local/share/trash and found nothing, no hidden files.
I have never seen anything like this before. Starting up today my usually completely free of clutter desktop is showing all of my home directory folders!If I delete folders from the desktop, they are also deleted from my home directory. If I create a new home directory folder, it also appears on my desktop. In effect my desktop has become my home directory and I don't like it.
I have lived with this for months and it isn't a big deal, but my Thunderbird 3.1.7 shows 2 Outboxes-Local Folders. Right now I have my Inbox divided into Local Folders and *****@Sympatico.ca. I would like to put everything under Local folders but I am unsure if I should do this when there are 2 Outboxes
I connect my laptop to my TV (1280 X 720) and mirror the images, having the same exact display on both the computer and the television. I tried doing this with another laptop (core2duo with nvidia gforce 9600) and the tv will show the desktop (not the full thing) while the computer remains the same. This is not usable. I tried using the nvidia settings application but to no avail.
Actually, Nautilus allows two instances of the same folder, or two folders with the same name in the same directory, as long as one is hidden (with the .prefix) and the other is shown. It happens that, if during a download (through a download manager or a torrent client) the user adds the . prefix to the download folder, another will be automatically created by the application (let's say Transmission for example) and the download would continue to that new folder. If any renaming happens (or if the original folder is restored), the download will resume to the folder with whichever initial name. Eventually, the user will be left with an unusable/corrupt complete download.
