Ubuntu :: Gigolo Keeps Using Nautilus Instead Of Thunar

May 12, 2011

I've got this Ubuntu 10.04 machine at work where I installed xubuntu-desktop as I'm much more familiar with Xfce than with Gnome.This means now all Gnome and Xfce related applications are installed (both Nautilus and Thunar, to make an example).I use Gigolo to access network shares.Problem is, when I open a network share with Gigolo, Nautilus opens instead of Thunar. This is annoying for a number of reasons and I'm not going to bother you with those.I want Gigolo to use Thunar instead.

I already did everything that's suggested on the Gigolo help page, but the problem persists. Uninstalling Nautilus, besides not being an option as this is a multi-user machine, doesn't solve the problem and actually results in this error on the terminal.

Fedora :: Switch From Thunar To Dolphin?

Sep 18, 2009

I've recently fallen in love with the speed and great performance of the xfce desktop. The only problem I have is that the default file manager is Thunar.

How can I change it to Dolphin?

The answer seems like it would be easy but I seriously can't figure this out.

Software :: Thunar Accidentally Replaced Nautilus As Gnome's Default Window Manager

Feb 21, 2009

I was messing around with different GUI sessions, and I wanted to try XFCE. Well, I switched to XFCE for a session, and I played around in it. When I went back to a Gnome session, however, it appears that Thunar is now the default filesystem explorer.I get the Thunar explorer. I want the Nautilus explorer. How do I fix this issue?

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Location Bar - Switch To Text Mode Button Missing

Jul 1, 2010

I just installed 10.04 on a computer I put together, I noticed the button that allows you to switch back and forth to the 'text entry mode' on the nautilus location bar is missing. Is there a way to get this back? I found you can use CTRL+L or use gconf-editor to switch but I used that button quite a bit and want to find a way to get it back.

Ubuntu :: Shortcut To Access Sudo Nautilus (gksudo Nautilus) From The Current Window

Feb 11, 2011

Is it possible to change my current nautilus window to have sudo capabilities,? e.g. to delete locked files. It may be lazy but if it takes a lot of navigation then it would be handy to somehow activate sudo from the open window without the terminal command (gksudo nautilus) which always begins at root.

Ubuntu :: How To Change A Nautilus Icon (an Nautilus Action)

May 16, 2010

I've added a new Nautilus action and I'd like to use another icon that those provided in the nautilus item con list (see attachment).

But whatever image I try (some PNG or even SVG files) I can't get them to be displayed. It seems there is a very special format, size, type to match the Gnome/GTK+/Nautilus icon requirements...

Ubuntu :: Move Nautilus Location Bar In Nautilus Up By Toolbar?

Apr 11, 2010

Does anyone know how I can move the location bar in nautilus up by the toolbar, as shown by this pic:

I'd rather not have to download the source of nautilus and edit the code / compile it myself.

By the way, a guy on Ubuntu Forums thought this was a mockup. It's not. It's the regular version of Nautilus, only I removed some toolbar buttons through the /usr/share/nautilus/ui xml files.

I just want the location bar next to the toolbar to conserve screen space, and be a bit more like Finder.

Ubuntu :: Xfce/Thunar Will Not Mount CDs?

Jul 17, 2010

I have Volume Management enabled in Thunar, and I have Removable Storage set to "Mount removable media when inserted". If I insert a DVD I get an icon on my desktop and in the side-pane of Thunar and a folder appears in /media. If I insert a CD I get... nothing. I can play an audio CD in gxine or mplayer or Decibel, but I can't browse the contents with Thunar. The same drive is used for both CDs and DVDs.

Ubuntu :: Any Way To Avoid Running Thunar?

Jul 13, 2011

I had a problem with Thunar in Xubuntu. As I often work with huge images, memory is consumed generating Previews. Disabling Previews seems to be very difficult in Thunar, as it makes use of external Thumbnailers. Another problem is making a file executable. I couldn't find out how to do that in Thunar. So I decided to change back to Nautilus, which solves the problems. In preferences it is easy to disable generating previews. But I was not able to get completely rid of Thunar. The folders on my desktop still would open in Thunar, although I set Nautilus as default browser. So the problem sometimes is still there. Uninstall is not possible, as it completely uninstalls xfce-desktop. Is there a way to avoid running both browsers at the same time?

Ubuntu :: Lost Thunar Bulk Renamer?

Jun 9, 2010

In a previous version of Ubuntu, when you installed Thunar you automatically got the Bulk Renamer as well.With the latest version not only does it not download automatically, but I can't find it in Synaptic at all. Has it not been updated to work with Ubuntu 10.04 or am I just being blind, and not seeing something obvious?

Ubuntu :: XFCE Thumbnails Not Appearing In Thunar

Aug 26, 2010

When I open Thunar, I can see thumbnails of jpegs, but not for video, pdf or document files. I've got the Thumbnailers package installed as part of XFCE Goodies, and also ffmpegthumbnailers (? I think, I'm at work so can't check). I've looked for a setting to change, but can't see anything relevant. Previous installations have allowed me to have beautiful thumnail icons.

Ubuntu :: GUI Freezes During Right-click Thunar Operations?

Jul 6, 2011

This has been going on for a few days now... when doing anything involving an opened right-click menu in Thunar, there seems to be a chance that the entire desktop will "freeze". I can move the mouse cursor, but cannot interact with any windows. If I use ALT+CTR+F* to switch to a terminal session and switch back to the graphical session, all the windows on the desktop appear blank. The computer appears to be running normally, I just can't interact with the GUI.So far, I've just been shutting down and rebooting when this happens... any ideas on how to go about diagnosing the problem and/or regaining control of the graphical session? I am using compositing and making non-focused windows translucent, but no other actions cause the GUI session to freeze so I don't think it's just a graphical issue.

Ubuntu Networking :: Thunar And Terminal Permissions Don't Match?

May 6, 2010

I just upgraded my laptop to Xubuntu 10.4. I have a nfs server I connected to with my old Xubuntu 9.10 set up. I loaded portmap and nfs-common then made a mount point. I chowned and chmodded the mount point in the terminal to my user name. But Thunar (the file manager for Xubuntu) won't let me open subdirectories. So I went back to the terminal and chowned and chmodded again with a -R. In the terminal I can read and write as user. Thunar (as user) says I don't have permissions to see the subfolders. When I start Thunar as root it assigns the permissions to my user name but not when I start Thunar as user. When I start it as user and browse to the folder and select properties it says the owner is root. What the frak? How do I get Thunar to see the permissions I set in terminal as sudo? Or better yet, how can I set the permissions for my mount point so that I can access and write to directories and files on my nfs share. I have no problems with my other computers with this server's shares.

Debian :: Gtk Upgrade Borked Thunar

Apr 14, 2010

i seem to have encountered a problem with thunar since upgrading gtk2. about once every fortnight i'll do an apt-get update/upgrade. today a lot of gtk2 libs were upgraded. ever since thunar won't recognise mouse clicks to open any folders in the detailed view, and i'm not entirely sure how or if i can roll back the packages with apt. synaptic won't let me force versions. running squeeze 64 bit btw.

Debian Multimedia :: Thunar Hangs/Goes To 100% CPU?

Aug 11, 2011

Thunar, for some reason, always seems to become non-response and consumes 100% CPU after I open a certain folder on my external hard drive. What could be the cause of this? I've tried opening the same folder on Windows and it didn't give me any problem, so I'm assuming that the problem lies within Thunar, and not the external hard drive itself.

OpenSUSE :: Unrecoverable Space With Thunar

Apr 4, 2011

When I plug in a USB drive and delete some files, there's no indication I can empty the recycling bin. The files aren't visible anymore in thunar, but the space isn't available to use. I end up having to format the drive to get my space back.If I open a terminal and go to /media/NEW VOLUME/.Trash-500/files I can see the files and folders that should have been deleted.

I'm using a net install of openSuSE with the XFCE environment, and I've never had this issue on a clean gnome install or any other desktop. I'm also using kernel 2.6.38-30-desktop.

Software :: Configuring Thunar In Xfce4?

Apr 25, 2010

I know its just a small preference thing - but is there a simple way to stop the filenames being underlined when the mouse cursor hovers over the Thunar window icons?

The desktop is Xfce4, which is as it comes with PureDyne (Ubuntu-ish Debian-ish RT kernel distro built for sound and video recording / editing)

Installing Nautilus instead seems a bit of an over-reaction

Debian :: Chromium And Thunar Use Different File Associations?

Mar 16, 2016

For some time (I don't remember exactly how long/since when, maybe since I switched to i3 window manager?) I have the problem from title.

Chromium browser uses completely different programs to open files than file browser (thunar). And most of the time thunar has associations I want. For example thunar opens PDFs with iceweasel, and chromium opens them with GIMP (!), note that I have never changed this king of settings. Until I changed it today chromium also used Baobab (I didn't even know it existed before I saw it) to open directories ("show file in directory" for downloaded files).

I know how to change for a single file type (at least for browser), but is there some way to set all file types to something sensible and keep both, browser and thunar in sync without doing all of that manually? Or at least revert it all to default?

Debian version: latest "testing" version. (I use testing because I really need up to date versions of a lot of programs)...

Debian :: Mount Any External Volume In Thunar?

May 27, 2011

I am running wheezy + xfce. When I attempt to mount any external volume in Thunar, I get a message saying "Unable to mount-- not authorized." This is problem #1. A bigger problem that I think is related is my wireless. Logged in as a normal user, I cannot connect to any wireless networks using network-manager. My wireless card is functional and I can see all the networks around me, but when I click on one to connect, nothing happens. No password prompt, nothing. Strangely, when I log in as root, wireless works flawlessly. I am a member of the netdev group.
