Ubuntu :: Drag File/Folder To Taskbar Button Creates Launcher, Not Bring Folder To Foreground?

May 20, 2011

After upgrading to 11.04, I noticed something strange, being that when I want to drag a file or folder from one Nautilus folder window to another which is not visible, I can no longer hold the item over said folder's taskbar button and wait for it to appear. It just shows the + for copy, and when I let go (which I have no choice but to eventually do), it creates a launcher to that item (I assume it's doing that, and not actually copying there, but the + has me unsure).

I've looked in Nautilus's preferences to see if this is some new behaviour that I can revert back to, but could find nothing there.

I'm of course using the Classic desktop with bottom panel being the taskbar. If you know how I can rectify this, please let me know, as the times I would want to create a file or folder launcher without the usual hassle would be rare, but I am constantly dragging stuff from one folder to another, and it would be a real pain to have to line up source and destination folders each time.

OpenSUSE :: VLC Integration In 11.4 - Cannot Drag And Drop Files

Mar 12, 2011

With a default 11.4 (64bit) installation with Gnome - and using the 11.4 one click installer on
VideoLAN - VLC: Free streaming and multimedia solutions for all OS! - the 11.3 integration seems to have worked better.

The first issue is that it's no longer automatically integrated into the right click context menu of movie files.

This integration happened in 11.3.

The second, which I think is user error but I really cannot get it to work is dragging and dropping files does not work.

-> Open Nautilus
-> Navigate to folder with movie files
-> Open VLC
-> Click on a file in Nautilus and try and drag it onto VLC

The VLC is hidden during the file click and drag, so a drag to the bottom panel is required to try and activate VLC - however, VLC is never activated. I have tried different positions on screen but still over the VLC entry to try and activate it, but nothing happens.

This same sequence on 11.3 correctly activates VLC so I can drag and drop.

A workaround on 11.4 is to make VLC "Always on top" via the right click menu on the VLC title bar.

Fedora :: Want To Right Click Folder In Nautilus To Open Terminal To Folder

I basically am hoping for a line of bash script I can put into "Open With" for folders so I can get a terminal with the right path. I hate manually typing in paths to places when I am looking right at them in nautilus. "gnome-terminal" doesn't work - it just opens a terminal to ~.

How would i go about copying all .jpg or .JPG files from a folder and all its subfolders to my /usr/name/pictures folder? I'm guessing I'd have to use some sort of .[jJ][pP][gG] to get all the pictures from other examples i've seen, but really not sure how to use that in a recursive cp.

Ubuntu :: Camera In Nautilus And Drag Them To A Folder From The Card?

Nov 28, 2010

I've looked all over the internet for an answer to this problem. Maybe I am the only one experiencing it. I am running ubuntu 10.10 and have problems getting pictures from my camera using any photo program (f-spot, picasa, etc). When I plug in the camera, it shows up in "Places" and under "Computer", it even brings up f-spot or whatever I have set to open under media handling in the nautilus preferences, however, when f-spot or picasa open, the camera is listed, but there are no pictures detected. I have removed and re-installed f-spot and picasa with the same results. I believe I even removed the config files for them before re-installing them.

I can open the camera in nautilus and drag them to a folder from the card. If I remove the card from the camera and use a card reader I can import the photos using fspot, picasa or any other photo program. I just cant figure out why f-spot or picasa cant get them from the camera as they have in past verisons. This is not limited to one camera, it happens with a canon and a Nikon. I hope thats not too much info and is not too confusing. The camera(s) show up in lsusb.

Fedora :: Disappearing Files - Open A Folder And It's Empty ?

Dec 27, 2010

I've using RedHat/Fedora for years now, and every now and then I encounter the following situation :

I open a folder and it's empty. The folder was containing files and I'm 100% sure I didn't deleted them myself. Each time the folder is deep inside the hierarchy and is among other untouched folders. Sometimes it's a folder I never use, sometimes it's a folder I use almost everyday. The missing content is not large (a few regular files).

I'm currently running F13 but I've seen this behavior before on previous versions. This is kind of scary all my work is there and my backups are also done on a a linux backup server.

I'm puzzled, I cannot see any specificities to these folders, I had no crash or cold reboot, nothing I see can explain that. Could it be related to ext3?

Ubuntu :: Add A Folder To A Hard Disk Which Was Full Of Symlinks To A CD Drive

Jun 22, 2011

if there was a way, to add a folder to a hard disk which was full of symlinks to a CD drive. This would primarily be a way to store offline media and a way to access it. I would still be able to browse the folder structure and see the files (but possibly not the sizes). I imagine something like this:

/archive/cd/cd1/photos/me.jpg > /mnt/cdrom/cd1/photos/me.jpg

Therefore I can see what files I have available, and I know which media to insert (in this case cd1) and I would then be able to view the files? Or if anyone has a better idea I'm open to it. Just to mention I don't have a GUI on this server, it is completely headless so any solution needs to be console based

Is it possible to share one folder between 2 users with full RW access without sharing every other directory they own outside that folder?

This seems straight forward enough to me. I've just asked it on #linux at irc.freenode.net but when we tried it became apparent that no one there could tell me how it was done.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Drag And Drop Is Slow?

Apr 11, 2010

The GUI on nautilus is painfully slow to work with. Every time I drag and drop a file I have to wait for the nautilus to slowly shade the whole file window . . . . . . . before it stops and lets me drop the file. I searched for a way to turn off this "animation", but found nothing.

I've tried pcman, but it wouldn't open my files. Thunar insists on copying files instead of just moving them.

Ubuntu Networking :: Drag And Drop Failing With VNC?

May 30, 2010

I have been using Ubuntu 10.04 (32 bit) as a headless workstation, running a VNC screen. Worked perfectly for about 3 weeks, then suddenly, I lost the Drag and Drop capability, for all applications.

For example:

Dragging and dropping to move items on the desktop does not work. The item simply pops back to the original location. Dragging and dropping to move items from one folder to another does not work. Same behavior -- the item just pops back to the original location. Dragging and dropping Bookmarks in Firefox does not work. The attempted Drag and Drop is ignored. Copy and paste still works fine. The problem does NOT occur when using an attached monitor (primary display screen :0).

I suspected that the changed behavior was caused by an update (from Ubuntu Update Manager). I confirmed this with the following:

Reinstalled Ubuntu 10.04 fresh from the live cd.
Configured minimal networking and installed VNC server.
Tested Drag and drop -- works okay
Applied pending updates (116) from Ubuntu Update Manager
Tested Drag and drop -- not working

I am using vnc4server and openssh-server installed from the repositories using Synaptic.

Ubuntu :: Drag And Drop Icons Between Views

Apr 5, 2011

I have just installed ubuntu 10.04 after using 8.10 until now. I have two sepparate screens (NOT Xinerama). The problems is that I cannot drag and drop icons on the desktop betwen the 2 screens. On ubuntu 8.10 this was working perfectly.

I do not want to use Xinerama because it is not what I want - when I change workspaces, it changes on both screens, one one screen I have to click exactly on taskbar to minimize/maximize application, so I do not whant to use Xinerama.

So do you have any ideeea how I can have back the feature from 8.10 to be able to drag and drop icons from one screen to another ? I have a sepparate home partition and old settings were loaded into this ubuntu, i erased settings from .gnome, .nautilus etc and still doesn work.

Ubuntu :: Activating A Partition - Cannot Drag And Drop Anything

May 10, 2011

I want to do is use a partition other than the one the OS is installed on for my data files. Before I installed 10.10 I set up a separate partition for this purpose and formatted it as ext 4. It shows under Places as a "131GB Filesystem". It contains a folder called "lost+found.

When I try to set up folders/directories to use for data using Ctrl+Shift+n nothing happens. The File menu does not have the option to create new directories. I cannot drag and drop anything onto it. The properties shows root as the owner. how to make the partition usable or direct me to where the instructions might be? After going through 400+ pages of a book on using the command line, I haven't found anything to deal with this.
