Assuming the Windows machine is still accessible over the network, you can use a port scanning program to scan for the VNC server it's running. If host name discovery is not working, it's often faster and easier to scan your network for the running server than to troubleshoot it. This may seem complicated at first, but port scanning soon becomes a very ...

So, add the files with the extension what you want in this folder and you can create them after files with the same extension from the right click menu: Moreover, if you add some ...

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 it is perfectly fine to run some applications as root we definitely need to know of the risks when doing so. One of the benefits of any Unix-like operating system (like Ubuntu) is a tight security concept to minimize unwanted damage to vital system files. File permissions are an essential part of these security measures . Only if we make sure that ...

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 ...

You can try to edit the Nautilus source code to scale the font in the zoom like in Nautilus 3.4. NOTE: In this example I'm running ubuntu 13.04 with nautilus (files) 3.6.3. You can test this in a virtual machine to see if everything is OK. First of all, I set the Nautilus Prefereces in "List View" as Default View and "200%" the zoom in List View Defaults. ...

My solution is to add an option for “Open as Administrator” to directories. As you can see, there is no “Open as Administrator” option when you right click on a folder: First, add the package repository by opening your Terminal and typing: $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/apps A message will appear: You are about to add the following PPA to ...

I'm going to risk answering this question since I now feel I have collected enough information on this issue. Basically downgrading to Nautilus 3.4 seems not to be an option at this time; it was coded for an earlier version of GTK, thus it wont compile on Ubuntu 13.10. The only practical way is installing a different file browser. As it happens, Nemo is ...

The method with editing ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini doesn't work with Nautilus 3.8. But there is better and simpler way. Simply open dconf-editor, navigate to org->gnome->desktop->privacy and uncheck the remember-recent-files key. That takes care of it, once for all!

No, it is not possible to do so. The reasoning of "is it really not possible to do so" might be uninteresting, but I can say something about why it isn't, and probably shouldn't be, possible. Fair warning: the answer is wordy. Its lengthy, but I believe its sensible. While I highly recommend that you do read on, feel free to not read on. The design of ...

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 ...

You can fix the missing context menu. I suggest removing the installed PPA version and the ppa (How do I remove a PPA added via command-line?), reinstall the version from Ubuntu and follow the instructions I derived from the bug reported: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/rabbitvcs/+bug/1093533. You need to download the following file ...

Unfortunately pasting file path from Nautilus to GNOME Terminal does not work as expected. It pastes the path as an URL with URL encoded characters. For example it pastes: file:///etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults/%25gconf-tree.xml instead of /etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults/%gconf-tree.xml Solution with clipboard Use the Edit > Paste Filenames function ...

Nautilus 3.6+ has removed or changed many good features it had in older versions; One is the typical search you mentioned. You have two options, one is to change your file browser from nautilus to "nemo" or something similar; another is to use non-official patched nautilus, named "SolusOS".

Short answer: do rm -r 4F8ZBREShQ and go for a walk or get yourself a coffee. Long answer: Seems a bug of BleachBit.

The keyboard shortcuts for Nautilus are mapped in the ~/.config/nautilus/accels file. From there I deduced that: Ctrl+Page Down is used to switch to next tab. Ctrl+Page Up is used to switch to previous tab. Alt+1 is used to switch to first tab. Alt+2 is used to switch to second tab. Alt+3 is used to switch to third tab. Alt+4 is used to switch to tab 4. ...

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 ...

I don't think Nautilus or any of the major file browsers have this feature. The only File manger I have seen this feature is ranger. According to ranger website: ranger is a file manager with VI key bindings. It provides a minimalistic and nice curses interface with a view on the directory hierarchy. In ranger you can use uq keybinding to undo closed ...

If you find yourself opening nautilus as root often, I would recommend adding the option to the right-click menu in Unity: (it uses the same command as the top answer, gksu nautilus). You will need to edit a *.desktop file in order to add the menu option, and you have two choices: /usr/share/applications/nautilus.desktop (requires root access to edit) - ...
