Ubuntu :: Desktop Showing Contents Of Home Folder?

Mar 14, 2011

Today I uninstalled Zimbra desktop from my Ubuntu 10.04. After doing it, I am facing several problems due to changes in system configuration.

My Home Folder contents are shown on Desktop and if I delete them from Desktop, they are also deleted from the Home Folder. I don't understand why this is happening.

Also, from the side pane in Explorer, the option of Home Folder is not present any more. When ever I go to Home Folder, on the side pane is shows that I am on desktop and the location bar shows that I am in Home Folder.

Fedora :: The Folder Contents Could Not Be Displayed?

Apr 30, 2011

I recently changed from Ubuntu 10.10 to Fedora 15, I haven't chosen to make them dual boot because I liked Gnome 3 that much. But I installed them on my second hard disk because then I can move my documents to this OS.But when I go to the Ubuntu files I get this message:The folder contents could not be displayed. You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents.mage:So now I can't access my documents anymore... Does somebody know how I can move them to Fedora?

Ubuntu Servers :: Apache2 - Browse Directories In /var/www From Firefox - Error "The Folder Contents Could Not Be Displayed"

Aug 16, 2011

I recently installed Apache on Lucid Lynx (Macbook 1.1) using the following tutorial: [URL] Everything appears to work correct except that when I browse http://localhost/ in Firefox, I cannot see any of the directories. Although, files such as html documents are visible. When I view the /var/www directory using the default graphical file browser, all of its child directories have Xs over their icons. When I attempt to open the directory "js", the following error message displays:The folder contents could not be displayed.
You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "js".

I figured this was preventing Firefox from viewing the directories. So I launched it with the "gksu" command to see if it would help. I still couldn't see directories when browsing http://localhost/ I'm basically trying to achieve functionality identical to the MAMP local server for Mac OS X. I'm about to start a LAMP project for a new client so having this up and running is important!

I also am having problems with 11.04 and the Unity desktop. In particular when I ask Evolution to Back Up its settings, I get the error message "The folder contents could not be displayed" "Operation not supported".

Ubuntu :: How To Have Desktop Display Contents Of HOME Directory

May 24, 2010

I am just coming to GNOME from KDE where I used the folder view desktop widget to display the contents of ~ directory (/home/<user>) rather than the "Desktop" directory itself, as that's where all the stuff I wanted to access from the desktop was. Is there any way I can do this in GNOME with the actual desktop (as opposed to a widget)?

Fedora :: Corrupt .gvfs Directory - List The Contents Of /home/Razorblade Folder - Nothing

May 4, 2010

I installed Fedora 12 x64. Now everytime I start my Linux the .gvfs directory in my /home/Razorblade -dir is corrupted. So I have to reboot and start an Linux LiveCD, mount my home partition and delete this folder. After that I can login normally. Symptoms: I am able to login normally, start a browser, start my mail client, list the contents of subfolders of /home/Razorblade/... - everything fine. But as soon as I want to list the contents of my /home/Razorblade folder - nothing but this turning blue thing around the curser. The command line does nothing after "ll /home/Razorblade", sometimes even crashes and closes. As root I am able to do "ll /home/Razorblade" And this is what I get:

OpenSUSE :: Can't See Contents Of The Desktop Folder On KDE ?

Jul 14, 2011

I have KDE 4.6.5 and (up until now) I could see and access files and folders on my Desktop. My Desktop was set to display the contents of /home/john/Desktop.

I set this up from Right-click --> Folder View Settings --> View --> Layout --> Folder View. Then Location --> specify a folder == /home/john/Desktop.

But now when I do this I don't see the contents of the /home/john/Desktop folder. Instead I see a blank screen with a tab on the RHS labeled "New Activity".

How do I revert to viewing the traditional Desktop and its traditional contents?

Ubuntu :: Delete Desktop Folder Without Deleting Contents

Oct 7, 2010

Im assuming there is a simple answer for this but I have yet to find it in forums. I have 2 partitions mounted on my ubuntu desktop, one is Windows C: drive labeled "Core" and the other is D: drive labeled "Reserve" but for some reason I have a second Windows folder on my desktop, when I attempted to delete it it began to delete the Windows files as well, one forum said to right click and "remove from desktop" but this option isnt in the menu. How can I just delete the folder?

Ubuntu :: Desktop Showing Wrong Folder Contents

Jul 22, 2011

My ~/Desktop is generally kept empty.

Yesterday on start resume from hibernate, it looked as if my encrypted home directory was unmounted; or at least instead of my $HOME contents I got a bunch of files related to this.

I rebooted the system, and since then my desktop has been rendering icons for every file in my home directory, but not updating the icons until the next reboot, if I change anything in $HOME while it is running.

I opened the gconf-editor and checked: the box for using the home dir as the desktop is not checked. I even tried toggling it and the option that controls drawing the desktop on/off in every possible combination. Nadda. The only thing that works is turning off drawing the desktop.

Ubuntu :: Moving Downloaded Files To Correct Folder?

Sep 1, 2011

I'm looking for a script or a bittorrent client which is able to move a file after downloading and placing it in a specific folder depending on the file type. E.g. moving a newly downloaded movie to "Videos" and an ISO-file to "Files".

I feel as if i have used a client with this functionality before but can't remember the name.

Since I at the moment use Transmission as my bittorrent client a script would also work since Transmission can run it after finishing the download.

Ubuntu :: Contents Of Text Documents Displayed In Their Icons?

May 1, 2010

but not all, of my text documents show their contents as their icons, instead of using my theme's designated icons for text files. For example, in the above image, the bottom-right file contains: "hello ubuntu forums / this is my problem / how can we fix it? / thank you" and it's icon displays some of this message so that it may be read without opening the file As you can see, the problem occurs with some filetypes, like .txt and .html, but not with others, like .doc or .rtf. How can I force all text files to use my theme's designated icons?

General :: Cannot Open Places - Home Folder - Getting - Error - File Not Found

Jan 13, 2011

I installed ubuntu maverick a couple days ago, total newbie. After trying to install some software I no longer can access any of the Places folder and get an error - file not found.

I can open Computer, partitions and devices, just not the first 7 folders which i think are bookmarks.
Thanks for helping, U.

Ok, I eventually solved it. Appears I had inadvertently selected another program as default folder openenr. Just opening any folder with right click - open with - folder openenr reassigned nautilus and opens Places folders ok.

Debian :: Share Home Among Distributions - Store Files All In "/home" Folder Of Extended Ubuntu Partition

May 1, 2011

Installed Ubuntu along with Debian on my Notebook and use Grub Manager to choose between them on startup. Since i like Debian now a lot (in past days it was a very hard system to handle, but there has been some progress i noticed), i have to change some things (want Debian as main system now) For Ubuntu i have: (was meant to be main system on Notebook) "/", "/home" and a "swap" partition, but since i am now going to use mainly Debian, i wanted to store my files all in the "/home"-folder of my extended Ubuntu partition (has much more space available) not in the "/home" folder of the Debian system. So i want both (Debian and Ubuntu) to use the same extended partition ("/home") which i created for Ubuntu to save their files like downloads, videos, and so on.

Ubuntu :: Shortcut To Desktop Points To Home Folder?

Jan 12, 2011

I'm using Zorin OS 4 Lite, which is a variant of Lubuntu 10.10. For some unknown reason, the desktop shortcut on PCManFM is pointing to my home folder, so I have all my personal files covering my Desktop (kind of annoying to be honest ). And when I try to add a shortcut to the Desktop it adds it to my home folder instead. Seems like there's some kind of hard link between the Desktop shortcut in PCManFM menu and my home folder. However, I can't find where it is or how to fix this. Has anyone else had this problem? How do I fix this?

Ubuntu :: Prevent Display Of Mounted Home Folder On Desktop ?

Feb 9, 2010

I recently changed linux distros and switched to Karmic. In my earlier setup /home was on a separate partition.

After switching to karmic I added the following line to /etc/fstab to mount my /home partition which was on /dev/sda6 (ubuntu is on /dev/sda7) /dev/sda6 /home ext3 nodev,nosuid 0 2

After rebooting I saw that while earlier I had an empty desktop now my desktop shows the content of my home folder.

On googling I found out about how I could change the nautilus preferences.

I used gconf-editor to change: apps>nautlius>preferences>desktop_is_home_dir to false

I also changed: apps>nautlius>desktop>volumes_visible to false.

However on rebooting I still see all the contents of my home folder on the desktop.

What do I need to do to show the Desktop as blank (as in point to ~/Desktop rather than point to ~)?

Ubuntu :: Desktop Suddenly Identical To Places - Home Folder

Jun 7, 2010

Suddenly, my "Places --> Desktop" folder is identical to my "Places --> Home Folder". This happened by accident somehow, and the folders and files in my Home Folder "/home/rj" are displayed on my desktop, and I don't want them to be.

When I click on "Places --> Desktop" it's as if I've clicked on "Places --> Home Folder" (the "File Browser" directory opens, the location is set at "/home/rj", and the title at the top is "File Browser").

Elementary stuff for a lot of you, I'm sure, but I'm blanking on how the Desktop folder can be restored to what I'd like it to be (basically empty, except for a "Downloads" folder), and my folders and files kept off the actual desktop (except for the "Downloads" folder).

Ubuntu :: All Files In Home Folder Are Gone?

Sep 1, 2011

. . . except mp3s?

I don't know what just happened, but all my photos are gone, as are just about all the other files in my home directory. The file structures are there (all the folders and subfolders under /home/matt/pictures), but there are no files in any of them.

Scattered around the home folder, there are folders that still have stuff in them, but lots are empty. Pictures are by far the most precious thing gone.

I was playing around in a Virtualbox install of PC Linux and trying to get my home folder to display there. Did I do something bad? (I was granting read/write).

Nothing in trash. I have a backup that is fairly recent, but I'm afraid I might lose some precious stuff.

btw - this is Ubuntu 10.10 - NOT KUBUNTU
