Ubuntu :: Nautilus Simple Click Mounting Method At Boot-time?

Feb 16, 2011

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.

Networking :: NFS Shares Not Mounting At Boot Time?

Jan 15, 2010

I've got a mostly Debian Lenny network but I've set one machine up with Squeeze. One the Squeeze machine I can mount my NFS shares manually but can't get them to mount at boot time. Here's my /etc/fstab file:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'vol_id --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).
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>

OpenSUSE Network :: Error Mounting NFS Shares Ato Boot Time?

May 20, 2011

I'm using Opensuse 11.4 updated from 11.3, update from 11.2 updated from. I'm mounting at boot time (in fstab) some shares from an opensuse 11.2 server. Mounting worked fine in 11.2, 11.3 and also in 11.4 but suddenly (maybe an automatic update?) It stopped working.... sometimes.

Sometimes they are mounted properly but sometimes they aren't. When mount fails I get a log error: "rpc.statd is not runninf but is required for remote locking. Either use '-o nolock' to keep locks local or start statd"

If I run manually (as root) mount -a the shares mount properly always, so I thought it was a problem of timing (the service starting late) so I tried to get a script to run after the network initialitation, the script does: "mount -a". But it doesn't work either.

Ubuntu Networking :: Grub2 Is Unable To Deal With Mounting The Samba Shares On Lan At Boot Time

Oct 15, 2010

I've been having terrible trouble with my 64bit Desktop v10.04 ever since I upgraded it. Has been a long battle - but I think I have it down to just one remaining issue which I suspect is more related to the network than to the upgrade. So I'll ask here also... The old system always used grub as the bootloader, and has always worked just fine. I have now had to do a complete fresh install, which incorporated a change to grub2 (first time I have used it).

It would seem now, that grub2 is unable to deal with mounting the samba shares on my lan at boot time. The boot always fails, dumping the user to the cli rather than the gui desktop. The error given indicates that the network is unreachable. Most users of the system have given up on Ubuntu altogether because of this, and fallen back into the clutches of the evil empire (the machine dual boots XP). If I log in, and manually startx to open the desktop, the network is there, and the shares are mounted just fine. Everything seems to be working ok - but for crashing out of the boot process with network errors. The fstab file follows, in case there is some cause there I'm not seeing (I have edited names and passwords prior to posting)...

Slackware :: How To Change Mounting Method To Suit Needs

May 18, 2010

I am after some suggestions on how I could change my mounting method to suit my needs.At the moment, I simply mount the device to a location as root.What I would like to do is setup automounting, but in a particular way. In particular, I would like it if when I put in a usb stick, it would be automatically mounted to say /media/usb1, and a second stick would be to /media/usb2, while an esata connected drive would go to /media/sata1

Even better would be if I put in the first usb stick and it was mounted at /media/usb1, it would *always* be mounted at /media/usb1, no matter what order I connected it to my computer in.I would also like to quickly ask about the difference about udev rules and HAL. At the moment I have only used HAL for my touchpad, and have not touched udev at all. What are the differences/advantages etc...

OpenSUSE :: Get LXDE Listen To A Simple Click?

Sep 27, 2010

I just tried the openSUSE-LXDE-11.3.i686-0.9.8-Build1.2 live CD.All started nicely. But trying to click a file in the LXDE file manager (and same for the Install icon on the desktop) did not do much. It was only that I frustrated let loose a series of clicks that happened what I expcted: opening a directory (called folder for some reason) in the file manager resp. starting the installer.I browsed through the most promising looking configuration screens, but could not find any related item.My mouse works perfectly in my normal openSUSE 11.2 KDE system (where I am now again).

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.

CentOS 5 Server :: Method Of Seeing Real-Time Traffic / IP To Apache

Sep 16, 2010

We have a production web site running apache 2.2.3 across several web servers. we also have a major problem with SPAM comments right now. our method of identifying valid IPs (whether by external clients/customers, or internal personnel) vs SPAM'ers is not ideal - its prone to erroneously labeling legit IP's as targets to be blacklisted.

What we need is.. a way to see how much distinct request traffic is coming from any given IP address to the site in real time (or very near realtime). Essentially we want to see in some graphic/chart way requests per sec to apache / per ip sorted by requests per sec.Would nTop do this? I've only used this in a limited form at a branch office, not on a production web server.

Ubuntu :: Mounting Windows Share Using Nautilus

Jul 20, 2010

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?

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Mounting Windows Share?

Aug 4, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Mounting - Partition Not Showing In Nautilus

Jan 1, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Adding Right Click -> Keyboard 'v' For Editing A File With Gvim In Nautilus?

Mar 21, 2010

In windows when I install gvim/vim, it automatically installs a context menu in explorer that lets me edit a file in gvim by simply right clicking and pressing v. For someone who edits a lot of files and is really used to vim, it is super-convenient. I want to do the same thing in nautilus. So I installed nautilus-actions and added to the context menu of editing with gvim. That wasn't hard. The hard part is getting that keyboard key to bind to that context menu item. Currently when I right click and press v, it sends the item to trash. I want it such that when I right click a file and press v, it edits the file in gvim. How can I do that? I want a good solution, and am willing to switch file managers/window managers if need be. This particular shortcut key is very important to my user experience.

Ubuntu :: Long Disk-activity-pause On Boot - Between Mounting Root And Mounting Swap?

Jul 14, 2011

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?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nautilus Not Mounting Canon 450D?

Apr 9, 2011

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...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Find A Simple Video Cutter That Works All The Time

Nov 13, 2010

I been struggling with this since Karmic and I know others have as well. This is really the only thing making me keep a Windows install around for my personal stuff.

Problem: Convert .TS files to iPod or really any smaller format keeping A/V sync after edit. I can covert my .TS file perfectly if I do not edit it but I want to just do a simple, quick trim of 2 mins from beginning and end.

HandBrake with convert the file perfectly but cannot trim. Avidemux does a great job on the video but I always have to play with the audio shift to get it in sync. It is usually betwenn -250ms to -1000ms off but I cannot count on it. If I run the video through DGIndex in Wine or view it with Mediainfo both programs detect the an offset problem but they are always wrong by almost 500ms and it is never constant.

Regular video editing I have pretty good luck with my normal DV files and I could even run the .TS files through other programs but it is too time consuming to be useful form this simple task. Anytime I want to take my recorded TV .TS files I cannot edit them quickly without making a full project out of it in Openshot Cinelerra, etc.

Has anyone found a quick, reliable way to do some lite video trimming in Ubuntu and keep A/V sync without having to resort to any Windows programs?

EDIT: Also I really do not want to resort to have to demux separately either. I know I am asking a lot but I got spoiled with a couple of Windows programs that will edit without reencode programs like VideoReDo can do the editing and converting all at once (for $100 !).

General :: Gnome/nautilus Mounting And Unmounting Without Root?

Feb 28, 2010

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:

$ gconftool-2 -s /apps/nautilus/preferences/media_automount --type=bool false
$ gconftool-2 -s /apps/nautilus/preferences/media_automount_open --type=bool false

Ubuntu :: Mouse Click Stops Working After Some Time?

Unfortunately there is a problem with the mouse. After some time the left mouse button stops working. There is no problem with the right button and with the movement of the cursor. I tried several mices, therefore the problem shouldn't be related to the mouse hardware.

OpenSUSE :: Adjust Click Time Response

Mar 8, 2010

how do you adjust the response time of the taskbar menus, such as when you click on the start button on the bottom left of the desktop? My problem is that when I click them, it would delay for about 1 second before popping up the menu. But right-clicking on the desktop popped out fine without any delay though. Is this normal? Where do I adjust the settings for this? I have configured my ATI graphics card succesfully. Direct rendering, desktop animation and everything else is working fine btw.
