Fedora :: How To Create New Folder In Nautilus

Oct 18, 2010

In re of Fedora 13. I'm having trouble trying to figure out how to create a new folder with nautilus. Yes - I know about doing a right click in the background of the window to use the pop up menu to create a folder. BUT - ALAS - When the folder is full of files, there is no blank background space to click in so I cannot get the pop up menu to appear. Hence, I cannot create a new folder. Seems to me that the constant tinkering with Nautilus is leaving essential features missing or totally not-obvious to locate. Argh!!! Since the main menus are also missing (as compared to prior Fedora releases), I seem to be left with little choice other than to open a terminal window and do a mkdir command.

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

Feb 19, 2010

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 ~.

Ubuntu :: Made An Error With Chmod - Create User But Don't Allow To See The Other User's Home Folder

Jan 18, 2010

I wanted to create an user but don't allow it to see the other user's home folder so I made chmod 0750 /home/folder and it worked fine so I went ahead and decided to completely forbid access to the root folder and I had the "great" idea to make chmod 0750 /, and now I'm having problems with wine and other applications, in example I used to have a folder in this address but now it's giving me errors and if I try to run some applications I got error "There was an error creating the child process for this terminal"

Ubuntu :: Create Folder',and Results In An Empty Folder Being Created On Desktop?

Oct 29, 2010

I have this nasty habit of refreshing desktop in a quick succession by right-clicking and selecting 'Refresh',on my XP system at office.(And,iam sure most of us do the same).With Ubuntu,if a right-click on desktop slowly and select 'align by...',it simulates the XP refresh action as explained above.But,if i perform the same action rapidly,it takes this first option from right-click context menu,which is 'Create Folder',and results in an empty folder being created on desktop.I tried double right-clicking and again it created an empty folder.Is there any workaround to handle this.I mean:Can the right-click context menu items be shuffled so that the 'Create Folder' option is moved from 1st place

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Upload Images Because It Cannot Create The Directories Required

Jun 1, 2010

I'm running OpenSuse 11.0 in a lamp configuration with Apache 2. I configured Apache with the .conf files instead of YAST because I am running virtual hosts (that's another story).

My problem is that my server will not render the pages unless the permissions are set to 775 which I know is not necessary. This is also causing a problem because I am trying to install WordPress onto the server. WordPress will run, but it unable to upload images because it cannot create the directories required.

Apache2 is running as 755 with root as owner and www as group. I changed the owner of the htdocs sub-directories to myself, and created a group that has permissions to write to the directory. WordPress runs as my user and has the same permissions (775).

I am mighty annoyed that I have to dive into the file menue to create a new folder.So I googled and found something that supposedly fixes it.:


So I tried that, for starters I only added the line

<toolitem name="Cut" action="Cut"/>

and saved nautilus-navigation-window-ui.xml again. However this has NO effect.

Ubuntu :: Possible Nautilus Bug With Shared Folder?

Oct 24, 2010

I've just discovered something I've not noticed before in earlier releases. I have samba installed but like to go the easy way when setting up smb shares by right-clicking on a folder and selecting 'Sharing Options' (That, by the way, sets up the configuration for the share in /var/lib/samba/usershares rather than in /etc/samba/smb.conf.)

Trying to get my Mac to be able to access the share, I was trying different modifications to the share with right-click > Sharing Options > Modify Share. Each time I did so, this caused Nautilus to restart - that is, the whole desktop blanked out to just the wallpaper and then my icons slowly reappeared. Worse, a file copy was interrupted. And much worse, a lengthy video encoding using OpenShot was interrupted. Both the latter irretrievably.This is unfortunate behaviour. Has anyone else seen it? Can anyone else confirm this? I couldn't find anything on Launchpad.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Can't Access Home Folder

Jan 3, 2010

I can't access the home folder. sudo nautilus in Terminal returned this message:


'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare: cannot open usershare directory /var/lib/samba/usershares. Error Permission denied.
You do not have permission to create a usershare. Ask your administrator to grant you permissions to create a share.Or something to that effect. When Nautilus opened, the screen showed a generic root folder and the only icon was Desktop. Some research led me to install Samba, which reduced the error message.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Freezes When Accessing Certain Folder

Aug 6, 2010

Every time I try to access the .wine folder Nautilus freezes. It may have nothing to do with wine and just be something about that folder or it's contents but here's what I have figure out so far:

-it freezes when double clicking the folder in Nautilus, right clicking, selecting folder next to it then arrow over to select
-does same thing when accessed as root
-everything worked fine when booting from a live CD
-restarting Nautilus or rebooting has no affect
-when it freezes, I can not scroll, select another folder, or do anything else in Nautilus, but it does respond to clicking the close window button by displaying the force quit dialog.

Ubuntu :: Home Folder Not Opening - Nautilus - UID?

Nov 29, 2010

I am helping a friend with his ubuntu PC, and I reinstalled to go from 8.04 to 10.10. In the process I had reconfigured his home directory to be a separate partition, it all worked ok. Although I did have to do the new install as a new username etc as I think is usual in such cases. I am not *convinced* I sorted all ownerships and permissions out. after the new install, I did change ownership of /home/oldusername contents using chown, which seemed to work ok. I do note that for the old username in the original 8.04 installation the uid was 1000, but the same username in the new installation is 1001

the problem is that nautilus does not start from Places > Home folder all that is seen is a waiting circle, which soon stops. But nautilus *does* start from a user terminal with just nautilus

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Folder Icons And Emblems Not Being Remembered?

Sep 15, 2010

I've recently acquire a new HDD and I've decided to use it for multimedia files.
So I've edited my fstab so it mounts this disk at startup.

What's more important, I've bind the folders in that disk (i.e. media/theDisk/Music) to a folder in my home directory (i.e. /home/me/Music) so I can have all the folder mounted at home (Mount the disk in /home/user is not possible because Nautilus start to whim about not being able to set some files in .nautilus or something, I believe its because it does not know which disk to save to or something like that)

So everything works fine, except for folder icons. When I open the home directory, all folders in the disk are shown with the Desktop default icon. Even if I change them (whether from home or from the mounted disk) the next time I open the home directory they are shown with the Desktop icon. Emblems are lost too.

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.

OpenSUSE :: Nautilus: Get The Opened Folder To The Top?

May 13, 2010

I was wondering if there is a way to make Nautilus scroll up when opening folders. If I open a folder at the bottom of the page, the subfolders open below and I have to use the scroll bar to move down the page to see what's under the top folder. I would like to have it put the opened folder at the top of the page so I can see as many subfolders and files as possible without having to scroll. Something like the file roller when you are looking for a place to extract files. It does exactly what I'm looking for. Are there any settings I can change in Nautilus that would provide this function?

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Clamscan File Or Folder Scan Freezes

Aug 13, 2010

I decided to check out nautilus-clamscan, in which all it does is add an option to scan the selected file or folder for viruses in the context menu, and while it works fine for some things highlighted, for some that I've randomly tried it freezes, and won't complete scanning. using the usual method of scanning for viruses through Clamtk, it scans those files and folders just fine, so it's not those themselves that's causing the freezing.

Fedora :: Nautilus Can't View Home Folder?

Mar 12, 2010

When I try to view ~ in nautilus, the animation in the upper right corner just spins indefinitely. It happens when I run nautilus as root too.Typing "ls -la" in the home folder will cause the term to freeze. Neither "ls -a" or "ls -l" by themselves cause it to freeze The freezing only happens in ~ to my knowledge.The freezing terminal also ONLY happens in xterm, inside gnome. Through ssh I can display the folder contents just fine, and I don't see any strange file names that might be causing an issue.I tried following advice I found, I believe on this site, to "rm -rf ~/.gvfs"I feel that I may e overwritten a fedora-specific library somewhere when trying to compile different things. I don't recall this being an issue immediately after upgrading from fc10 to fc12, though it could have conceivably gone unnoticed.
