Ubuntu :: Possible To Install Dropbox With Different File Manager Than Nautilus?

May 18, 2011

I would like to use DropBox, but I really don't want Nautilus on my system.I downloaded the source to compile, thinking it would allow me to use a different file browser, but unfortunately it seems they made it dependent on Nautilus.Is there a way to compile it using a different file browser (Thunar in this case)? And if not, is there an alternative to DropBox out there that works on multiple platforms?

Ubuntu :: Dropbox Changed Nautilus Apperance

Apr 20, 2011

I just installed Dropbox.When install completed the appearance of nautilus changed. It looks atrocious - like a 1990s Apple O/S.I guess I shall have to uninstall Dropbox. Last time I tried using it on Ubuntu a year or so ago, I binned it because it stopped working.I just tried changing the Appearnce settings. That's not made any difference. It's doesn't seem to be merely a colour theme that's changed. The actual icons are different. Everything's been squared off. Nautilus icons have lost their nice rounded edges.This might seem minor but it matters. And assuming Dropbox is the cause of this, what else is it making a mess of?

Ubuntu :: Make Nautilus As File Manager?

Dec 13, 2010

I have, in fact, stated my problem correctly. I want to make Nautilus as the default File Manager in KDE. I use GNOME on other computers, and don't like the feel of the KDE file manager on my PC. I looked online but most "solutions" are for the other way round and in either case, didn't work for me.

I tried changing the 'inode/directory' file association to Nautilus but it didn't change anything. What can I do ? (I have GNOME as a DE here too .. But I would like to know how to change the association in KDE as well)

Debian :: Nautilus-dropbox Installation On Wheezy

Nov 9, 2014

I added the following line to my sources.list

Code: Select alldeb [URL] ..... wheezy main non-free

and then after:

Code: Select allapt-get update

I run:

Code: Select allapt-get install nautilus-dropbox

but I got stuck (console freeze) and I had to reboot hoping to sort out somehow...

After reboot I try to apt-get again but I got the following message (my traslation)

Code: Select allE: dpkg was interrupted.

It's  necessary to do "sudo dpkg --configure -a" for correcting the problem

So I went in the console again for that command and I get

Code: Select allConfigurazione di nautilus-dropbox (1.4.0-3)...

Dropbox is the easiest way to share and store your files online. [URL] ....

but nothing fruitful seems to happen; and now how to proceed?

Ubuntu :: Nautilus File Manager Looks Strange In Lucid

May 7, 2010

I need some restoring my Nautilus File Manager back to its original state. I tried installing Elementary Nautilus but for some reason it was not working for me, so I uninstalled it but have been having an issue with Nautilus looking like its former self. Now Nautilus doesn't display the "tree" on the left, there are no back/forward icons, and generally looking strange.Here's a picture to showcase my issue:


I would love to use Elementary Nautilus but can not get it as my default file manager. Since I can't do that I just want Nautilus (the one that comes shipped with Ubuntu) to look and act like it's supposed to.

Fedora Installation :: Nautilus Opens Only Through Dropbox Folder

Aug 25, 2011

I just did a clean install and started with the software installation. After I installed dropbox, a window popped up asking me for administrator's password....I put in my user password and it said wrong password (i just now remembered not adding myself to administrator's group while creating my user...ouch!) after which a notficiation came and went too fast for me to read it properly....it said something like unable to set user /etc/x something something.....I know it sounds completely vague but that is all I could before it disappeared.

Now, nautilus won't open unless I click on the dropbox icon below in the taskbar.I guess I can manage for a while but I'm hoping to find a solution to the problem.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus File Manager Very Slow With Folders With Many Files?

Jun 3, 2010

With Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.0.4 I have seen that the nautilus filemanager is extremely slow with folders that contains many files or/and folders.I made sure that "Assistive Technologies" is diable. On the filemanager preference I set all preview to "Never", tried all possible views, but the filemanager remains extremely slow. It seems like it becomes even slower when the subfolders in the folder you are viewing new files are being created by for example a program. Possibly nautilus filemanager is updating continuously ?

I use to be using debian etch nautilus file manager. With the same directories, nautilus in debain etch was working much faster. But contrary to the one in Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.0.4 is is far less stable. It seems like the newer version is more stable but however extremely much slower. I was wondering if I am missing something. Or whether this is a bug. If it is a bug, then I am wondering when this is going to be solved in nautlius filemanager.

Ubuntu :: Choose Nautilus File Manager Header Format?

Oct 31, 2010

Last night I had to re-install Ubuntu. Previously, the header of the file manager had been configured up with the three buttons on the right for icon/list/compact view (see 1st image below), whilst since re-installing, they appear with the drop-down menu instead (as per the 2nd image). How do you change between these two formats? My preference is for the first of these.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Access Network Shares From Nautilus File Manager

Oct 15, 2010

I'm running 64 bit Lucid on a HTPC that is networked with a Windows 7 64 bit laptop. Up until this morning, sharing media between these two worked fine. When I attempted to connect through Rhythmbox to play music, the computer couldn't find the files. I attempted to access the network through Nautilus and it was unable to mount the location. So I tried the Create Launcher command and created a link of the network on the desktop. I was prompted to login and it worked perfectly This has happened once before and the only way to fix it was to reinstall Ubuntu.I would very much like to avoid that if possible as the system is setup perfectly.

I wouldn't bother with the issue if it didn't prevent me from adding my music files to Rhythmbox. I have run findsmb as well as smbtree. Smbtree returned nothing and findsmb had a dotted line with nothing underneath. Nothing has been removed. I did install security updates this morning, but since it has happened before, I am more inclined to thing it is a bug or conflict somewhere.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Actions - This XML File Is Not A Valid Nautilus-actions Config File

I've been trying out Nautilus-actions (Gnome 2.28.4), but have been unable to import most config files from [url].

When I attempt to import an action, it complains:


Can't parse file 'convert_flv_to_avi.schemas' as GConf schema description file!

This XML file is not a valid Nautilus-actions config file (missing keys: )

So far, the only one that has worked for me is "Move to custom folder" [url].

Ubuntu :: Safe To Install Dropbox In 10.04?

Aug 18, 2010

whether it's safe to install Dropbox in Ubuntu 10.04. It seems to be easy enough: [URL] and here for people who like me need to be held by the hand with simplest things: [URL] But as a newbie to ubuntu I've been burnt trying out seamless things that turn into tweaking nightmares that I can't manage. It would be useful to receive any prior warning as to how Dropbox cohabits with Gnome, Nautilus or anything relevant in Ubuntu 10.04.

OpenSUSE :: How To Install Dropbox In 11.4 64-bit

I have a new install of OpenSuse 64-bit. I've stumbled around blindly and seem to have installed Dropbox using dropbox-lnx.x86_64-1.1.24.tar.gz. It apparently worked because I was able to enter successfully my Dropbox log-on information.

I have no idea what to do next. There's no indication of any synchronisation in Dolphin. Dropbox installation in Ubuntu/Mint is a no-brainer but this has me stumped.

Debian :: How To Install Dropbox On Jessie PowerPC

May 31, 2015

I am new using linux and don't have too much experience in terminal, however I am curious and work hard. I have an imac G5 powerpc with 2g processor, 768 mb ram and 232.7g hard disk. I recentrly installed debian 8.0.0 (jessie) with xfce environement. I have three other computers (two with xununtu runing and one with windows) using dropbox to sync all my work in differents places, so I use dropbox to get all synchronized. I don't want to change all the pc's to other cloud service, I would like to install dropbox in this machine.

I installed libnet-dropbox-api-perl, pear-channels and pho-dropbox packages from the synptic package manager with the hope to use dropbox...but I dind't even find something colled dropbox in the pc.

My question is: is it possible to install and use dropbox in this powerpc machine ? if yes, is there a tuto (for dumps) to get it ?
