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 ...

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.

You can edit the gtk-main.css or nautilus.css files. I recommend you to try this under your ~/.themes and not system-wide. You may either change the background color of nautilus only or the base theme as a whole, which affects a lot more programs. In this example I will change the background color in the default Ubuntu Theme "Ambiance" from white (#ffffff) ...

As well as nautilus . you can also do: xdg-open . and it will do the same as if you double clicked a file in nautilus. Which also means you can open a spreadsheet in LibreOffice with xdg-open mysheet.ods etc. I have it aliased to xopen for slightly quicker typing by putting the following in my .bashrc alias xopen=xdg-open

The actual equivalent to Nautilus Mount/Unmount operation is gvfs-mount -m -d /dev/ice /some/directory and gvfs-mount -u /some/directory.

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 ...

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).

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.

I don't enjoy saying this, but customizing Nautilus is not high on the list of priorities of GNOME devs at the moment. If you're unwilling to modify the source code of Nautilus, I very strongly recommend that you consider installing Nemo. Nemo is everything that Nautilus was, and more. Installing Nemo is easy: search in the Software Centre (where it's ...

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.
