This question is essentially a follow up or continuation of:
...but b/c this isn't ANSWERING that question, I'm disallowed from asking this there. So I've no other recourse except to ask a new question (or two).
The issue is a complaint that Nautilus/Files has been dumbed-down and does NOT show hour and minute (let alone seconds) information. In the other "Ask", a method for patching the source code and recompiling is given and then also a method for just obtaining and installing a ppa is given.
I tried both the re-compile method and the ppa method shown in the original "Ask". Neither one of those work for me. I still just see the stripped/simplified/nearly-useless date stamp.
So my question is, can anyone elaborate on and help me get to getting the full date and timestamp?
I'm not sure if it's significant or not, but when running the "nautilus &" command shown in ...496073#496073, my terminal spits out:
Nautilus-Share-Message: Called "net usershare info" but it failed: 'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare: cannot open usershare directory /var/lib/samba/usershares. Error No such file or directory Please ask your system administrator to enable user sharing. tdb(__NULL__): tdb_open_ex: called with name == NULL
The recompile method (cut-and-pasted from the OrgAsk) is as follows:
You can get back the full date by recompiling nautilus:
sudo apt-get build-dep nautilus sudo apt-get install quilt export QUILT_PATCHES=debian/patches apt-get source nautilus cd nautilus* quilt new 999_full_dates.patch quilt edit libnautilus-private/nautilus-column-utilities.c
Change line 77 from
Rebuild and install modified package:
quilt refresh fakeroot dpkg-buildpackage cd .. killall nautilus sudo dpkg -i nautilus_*.deb nautilus &
And the ppa method (also cut-and-pasted) is to visit:
