For this 14.04 Trusty release, the developers have backported much of the "old" nautilus 3.2/3.4 functionality that was found in 12.04 & 12.10. Many of the defaults are set for the 12.04 users so that they have a "seamless" transition to 14.04. The feature you mentioned came in much later - probably 13.04 or 13.10. Luckily, the developers have ...

It is still there in "Files > Connect to ..." Enter sftp://user@address/folder/ and you should be good to go.

This is one of the main reasons I always use List View: It's not always ideal. Some file managers have a multi-pane option. Nautilus used to but this was stripped back. There has been a bit of a struggle to get it back but I'm not sure how viable that is now. I use Dolphin these days (I'm also a KDE user so that makes sense for me) which might be an ...

As far as I know... with nautilus 3.10 in Ubuntu 14.04 there is a new patch to the source named restore-traditional-menu-bar.patch to bring back the "File | Edit | View | Go | Bookmarks | Help" menus instead the new "View" & "Location" buttons. In Nautilus 3.6, introduced in raring, the menu layout was changed from the traditional ...

In the file manager hit Ctrl-L and then type in computer:// Note: computer:/// also works.

The udisks command is most likely what you are looking for. While sudo unmount /dev/sdXY will work, udisks can do this without root level (sudo) permissions. If you have a drive /dev/sdXY, mounted, where X is a letter representing your usb disk and Y is the partition number (usually 1), you can use the following commands to safely remove the drive: udisks ...

The actual equivalent to Nautilus Mount/Unmount operation is gvfs-mount -m -d /dev/ice /some/directory and gvfs-mount -u /some/directory. This uses the same API that Nautilus uses, GIO virtual file system (gvfs), which provides different tools to use several services as mount points, such smb, NFS, FTP, block devices, etc. To identify which device you need ...

Using the dconf-editor approach doesn't seem to work in Trusty Gnome. But the following does: In your home directory press Ctrl+h, open the .config folder, the nautilus folder, and the accels file; ie, open ~/.config/nautilus/accels and change the line: ; (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/ExtensionsMenuGroup/NautilusOpenTerminal::open_terminal" "") to ...

In Ubuntu Gnome 14.04, open dconf-editor. Go to org>gnome>nautilus>preferences. Check the box next to enable-interactive-search. Restart nautilus

You can try to edit the gtk-main.css or nautilus.css files. I recommned you to try this under your ~/.themes and not for system wide. In this example I will change the background color for nautilus in the default Ubuntu Theme "Ambiance" from white (#ffffff) to a light grey (#D8D8D8). 1) Create your ~/.themes directory and copy the original Ambiance theme ...

Once you know the device, possibly using the df info as in @rcpao answer, the best way to "eject" the disk is, imho, using the same command that the graphical interface is using: udisksctl unmount --block-device /dev/sdc1 I have a script to do a backup to a disk that I know will mount under /media/romano/movlin, and after the backup I do: sync ...

I don't know if it still applies to unity, but once in a while one would make a ~/.gtk-bookmarks file with something like the below to get a custom list of places: file:///home/boris/bks bks file:///home/boris/box box file:///home/boris/dwn dwn file:///home/boris/cmp cmp file:///home/boris/pcs pcs file:///home/boris/msc msc file:///home/boris/pst pst ...

The seahorse-plugins is deprecated since 10.04 and as stated in the error message, the seahorse-nautilus package now replaces it. For details you can look at the source package and its debian/control file: Package: seahorse-nautilus Architecture: any Depends: ${shlibs:Depends}, ${misc:Depends}, seahorse-daemon (>= 3.2.2) Recommends: ...

The clean way would be to create a .desktop file for your script and then make it the default text editor. Create a file called /usr/share/applications/foo.desktop with the following contents: [Desktop Entry] Name=foo Exec=/usr/bin/foo.sh %U Terminal=false Type=Application MimeType=text/plain; Make it the default program for the text/plain mimetype: ...

If the command only replies one file with its path then use the following command: nautilus $(dirname "$(locate /home/*special*.odt)") dirname strips the last component of the path nautilus ... open nautilus file manager at the given folder But I recommend to use it like this: nautilus "$(locate /home/*special*.odt)" With the file as argument, the ...

When you run software as another user you're in fact starting the new minimal and isolated environment that doesn't carry on some "excessive" variables (among others variables responsible for injecting libraries or setting certain privileges). Replace your sudo nautilus call with the following - it will carry on user-specific x server settings from the ...

Here is a small Nautilus script which gives you a "Use a custom command" dialogue box on Nautilus. The Script Save the following script as Open with custom command in your ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/. If you are using Ubuntu 13.04 or above, you need to put the script in ~/.local/share/nautilus/scripts/ #!/bin/bash var=$(zenity --entry \ --title="Add ...

Execute the following command in terminal (Ctrl + Alt + T) to enable the typeahead feature in Ubuntu GNOME: gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.preferences enable-interactive-search true This is set to false in Ubuntu GNOME by default, but set to true in Unity, which enables the type-ahead functionality in it.

Hi & Welcome to AU, Assuming that you're trying this on nautilus but no through the terminal. Well there's a known Bug discussion in place for a while now. Not sure what has happened to it yet though. Default behavior of deleting a file/folder is that; the moment you hit DEL button; file/folder will be moved to Trash without any further ...

You could also use a nautilus script instead of a dedicated extension: #!/usr/bin/perl -w # # Open terminal here # # Nautilus script that opens a gnome-terminal at the current location, if it's # a valid one. This could be done in shell script, but I love Perl!. # # 20020930 -- Javier Donaire <jyuyu@fraguel.org> # http://www.fraguel.org/~jyuyu/ # ...

After a lot of tries, I came upon the very simple method given above by Gill Bates, which was to Go into System Settings Switch default manager to something else Switch it back So I did that, then closed and reopened Firefox and sure enough, it worked like a charm. Maybe I can invoke Occam's Razor here...

This seems to be a limitation of the GTK+. You can't force its file selector to do something it just can't currently do. Any applications that use the GTK+ file selector widget are going to have the same problems. However applications that use the Qt equivalent (and therefore all KDE applications and many others), can open directly from HTTP links. I have ...

Sometimes Nautilus lags behind on filesystem changes. I don't think I've ever experienced a delay that allowed me to post a whole question but oh well. You can refresh Nautilus by pressing F5, or changing directory and then back.

But... But... You've already found the answer... rename really is the best thing since sliced bread. If you need some examples of it doing really cool things, I've written a few in my time here: Simple replacement (another example: Changing extensions) Zero-padding existing numbers Shunting existing parts of a filename around Rewriting entire directory ...

A keyboard shortcut like this doesn't exist by default, but you can use the bash built-in bind to define one. Just add the following section to your ~/.bashrc: # define function that opens default FM in working directory fmhere(){ xdg-open "$PWD" } # bind hotkey to it (<Alt><Shift><F>) bind -x '"\eF":"fmhere"' \eF is the terminal ...
