Ubuntu :: File Preview In Nautilus On 11.04 On Networked Home Drive

Aug 2, 2011

We have recently upgraded to ubuntu 11.04 64bit from 10.04 and 10.10 in a networked office in which our home directories are mounted on a server raid array. Ubuntu considers that the home directory is a local drive rather than on a networkWe have noticed that file preview are very very slow in 11.04 for pdf's and pictures in nautilus, causing a lag of around 10 seconds for each file. This can cause a problem for folders which hold multiple files which can be previewed. Preview worked fine in previous versions of ubuntu on the same machine, with the same network setup. Previewing of actual local files works faster, but is slower on 11.04, than previous versions.

Both the 10.10 and 11.04 systems are up to date with available updates (11.04 - and 2.30.1 on ubuntu 10)Obviously, there is a work around for this problem - turn off preview. But, it would be nice to turn it on as its a useful feature.

OpenSUSE :: Nautilus Image/video/pdf/html Preview Failing

Apr 18, 2010

I don't how long is has been happening for (I've just upgraded my old computer, so it is now my faster and better machinig), but Nautilus is failing to create thumbnails for anything other than text files.

I've swapped the settings around to try to trigger changes, but even on "Local only" or "Always" with a 10MB cap then Nautilus won't generate previews for anything other than text files. All images/videos/pdfs/web pages that should have thumbnails generated for them have the "pending" icon but never generate a thumbnail. If, however, I open the file (with Eye of Gnome or Gimp) and refresh the folder then the thumbnail appears for the one file I just opened (so I could go through and preview all images, but I'd really rather not!)

I've tried removing/renaming my .local/share/mime folder in case it was incorrectly handling file types, but that didn't help. I've looked in gconf at the thumbnailer apps, but that appears to be for everything except images. Running "evince-thumbnailer" on its own works fine as well and generates an image. There aren't any related errors in .xsession-errors, and I don't know where else Nautilus logs to (running "nautilus --browser" creates a browser window but then drops back to the command line and doesn't print any output).

I'm using openSUSE 11.2 and the default Gnome, with codecs from Packman. A fairly similar setup on my other machine is thumbnailing perfectly fine.

Debian :: Too Many Nautilus Windows When Browsing?

Oct 23, 2010

Is there any way to configure nautilus to open new folders in the same window? Now, when I browse to a folder in my ~/ and finally reach the folder I was looking for. I have several or so nautilus windows open. Just to navigate to a specific folder in my home directory (~/). I think all those windows are a little excessive.

Ubuntu Networking :: Autofs And Nautilus Replacing Fstab - Browsing?

May 6, 2011

Because of NFS traffic congestion, I am trying to use autofs instead of fstab(NFS) to mount /home and /data directories on our system (from a NFS server). I have it up and running - users can log in and their /home directories work fine. However, when they need to save a file (openoffice or nautilus) they cannot see the directory tree to locate folders for saving. I have tried setting the --ghost option in auto.master, and I have tried commenting the BROWSE_MODE in /etc/default/autofs. But no luck. Using the terminal, I can go a folder and see subfolders using ls -la. They then appear in Nautilus, but later disappear. Since this is a school network, I can't expect teachers and students to use the terminal to save files. They are used to using Nautilus, with our regular NFS mounts.

Ubuntu :: Browsing The Filesystem (Nautilus) And Firefox Seems Realy Sluggish Compared To The Windows 7 Counterparts

Mar 22, 2011

I can't quantify the behavior, but every time I run Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (32-bit), I get the impression that I'm using a much slower machine. All I have to compare it to is my Windows 7 64-bit install on the same machine (specs in signature), where almost everything is very snappy by comparison.

I don't have skipping audio or delayed video when watching DVDs in VLC Media Player, and Urban Terror (a 3D game) runs fine, but just general stuff like browsing the filesystem (Nautilus) and Firefox seems reaaaaallly sluggish compared to the Windows 7 counterparts.

What I'm doing at the time does not appear to affect the sluggishness. I have noticed the same impression of sloth both while copying large files, and while doing nothing in particular. That's not how it's supposed to work, is it? Does an Ubuntu install normally slow down over time? I have only been running 10.04 LTS since last October or so.

Ubuntu :: Preview Icon For MPEG Files?

Jan 30, 2011

Ubuntu 9.10 and Gnome 2.28.1

I have a set of MPEG-4 files, all created by Handbrake, sitting in a directory.

Most of them have an icon that shows a still from the video content, but four of them have the generic "film spool" icon.

Why do some of these files have that generic "film spool" icon? How can I choose the frame to be used as the icon?

Debian :: Nemo Won't Preview Network Files (JPGs And PNGs)

Nov 7, 2015

I have noticed i cannot get nemo to preview jpgs and pngs that are located on a network drive (smb).

I can preview these file types locally, but not in the network storage.

I have tried changing: Edit > Preferences > Preview

So that:

Show thumbnails: Always
Only for files smaller than: 1GB

This has had no effect, i still cannot preview network jpgs and pngs for some reason.

Networking :: Browsing Ubuntu 10.10 Shared Files From OSX Snowleopard?

Jan 11, 2011

I have a desktop running Ubuntu 10.10 and several terabytes of files on it. In Windows all I have to do is enable sharing and my Mac will see the shared folders right away and I have no problem browsing them. I read somewhere that it was essentially the same process in Ubuntu which I followed but I am unable to browse. The desktop does show up in OSX but when I click on it from Finder (Path Finder actually) I get a message saying "The server "Foo" may not exist or it is unavailable at this time. Check the server name or IP address, check your network connection, and then try again."

If I select "Connect to Server" under the Go menu in finder and type in smb://ip-address then I get one step further. I am asked to log in and I just click on guest (my user name and password didn't work) and then I get a list of all the shared folders but when I click on one I get a message very similar to the one above but not identical.

Everything I have found is about 5 years old. Or has anyone had similar issues and solved them? This is the first time I have ever tried any kind of networking in Linux but I am thinking Ubuntu 10.10 may have some sort of software firewall enabled by default?

General :: Browsing Files On Device Through Kde Bluetooth

I use fedora12-Gnome as my major desktop OS. Every basic need was fulfilled , until I tried Fedora12 KDE. The problem is with Bluetooth connectivity to my cell phone device.It connects to the cell phone and set trusted but I can't seem to see any option of "Browse files on Device".Does that mean in KDE I actually can not browse my Bluetooth connected devices?The same thing happened with Mandriva2010-Kde and Fedora13 Kde , I mean I guess It's related to KBluetooth app.

General :: Enabled Directory Browsing And Could Watch Files In The Browser On PS3?

Sep 22, 2010

Not sure if this was the right place to post this. Recently installed Ubuntu Netbook remix on my netbook. On Windows I used IIS and pointed my website to a directory full of video files all in .avi containers, enabled directory browsing and could watch files in the browser on my PS3.

I'm wondering how I go about doing this in Apache? Since there isn't any GUI to do it for me like in IIS :P.

OpenSUSE Network :: Setup An Apache Server On Computer Which Will Allow Browsing Of Files In A Specific Directory And Subdirectories?

Jun 13, 2011

I'm trying to setup an Apache server on my computer which will allow browsing of files in a specific directory and subdirectories, without needing any sort of authentication.

I've got the Apache2 server up and running through yast, and everything works fine as long as I try to point it to the /www/htdocs folder. However, I want to point it at another folder, which is on another partition. This partition is formatted as NTFS, if that matters at all (here's some background on some permissions issues I had with the NTFS partitions recently).

When I change the "Directory" setting in the Yast http server configuration utility to the directory on the NTFS partition I wish to use, attempting to access the server results in the following error:

Code: Access Forbidden: You don't have permission to access the requested directory. There is either no index document or the directory is read-protected. If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.

Error 403

General :: Turn Turtle-speed Browsing Into Penguin-speed Browsing?

I can browse some pages e.g. ..... with firefox very slowly but NEVER facebook. I can browse almost any page, even facebook, with OPERA but very very slowly. The same goes with konqueror... Wicd shows that i am always connected with my WPA wireless network

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Won't See Files

Jun 2, 2010

Since a couple of days back mostly all the folders and files I had on my download directory are not visible in Nautilus. Some of them are still there, but the majority it's like vanished. The folder is where everything I download with Transmission goes into. The tricky thing is that all those files are visible through the terminal, pcman file manager or konqueror, but not Nautilus, which is very annoying. I've tried reinstalling Nautilus from Synaptic, checking the 'show hidden files' option, checking and changing files and folder permissions and I also checked that there's no hidden instance of Nautilus running. I have Ubuntu 10.04 (upgraded from a 9.10) and the files are on a ext4 drive. Nautilus version is 2.30.1

Ubuntu :: Where Do Deleted Files Going After Using Nautilus

Mar 22, 2010

I use XBMC a lot and recenty i have been trying to download movies i have d/l using SABNZBDPLUS. I noticed my 320GB getting low so i tried deleting the files within the folder itself but got this message "Cannot move file to the deeted items folder, do you want to delete permanently?". Anyway i tried to delete but i guess it would not also the main folder had a lock icon on it.

So i read somewhere you can use nautilus in the terminal and once i navigated to the folder in question i pressed the delete key on my keyboard. The file is not in my trash can and i dont think is permenantly deleted as my disc space has not been reduced.

Ubuntu :: Use Nautilus To Open Files Within Swiftfox?

May 5, 2010

where's the nautilus app that i want to use to link to the "open containing folder" option within the download menu. For some reason it's as if it's completely forgotten it. After searching for nautilus, i didn't see one single file that looked like it was the main part of nautilus to link to, there was a myriad of files to choose from and i thought it'd be better to ask here and quicker than to try each one out myself.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Deletes Files Without Warning / Fix It?

Nov 14, 2010

I've noticed since upgrading to Maverick that nautilus has become very buggy and crashes quite a bit (I've noticed it tends to happen during multiple file transfers but really it happens often and not only because of transfers).

While I've been able to tolerate this crashiness, today I came across a problem that is very distressing. If I have two files in a folder and I rename one so that it has the same filename as the other, nautilus does not display an error message. Instead what seems to happen is that it retains one file and deletes the other permanently (There seems to be nothing in the trash as far as I can tell).

Has anyone come across this error before? If you have, I'd really appreciate any advice on how to fix it.

I've tired turning off previews and that didn't work. Running nautilus as root didn't work either
