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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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

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 ...

Short answer: do rm -r 4F8ZBREShQ and go for a walk or get yourself a coffee. Long answer: Seems a bug of BleachBit. See http://bleachbit.sourceforge.net/forum/unremovable-folder-after-trying-wipe-free-space; you can join the discussion there. The OP of Not able to delete folder from gui or terminal has been able to get rid of it, see the answer; but ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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: ...

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: ...

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.

If you want to Directly open "Computer" location, then run/type following command: nautilus computer:/// Or by using Alt+F2, then type computer:/// as follows: This will Show "Computer" which you want! you can also use computer:/ only.

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 ...

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 ...

A link to a network folder will only work immediately if it is mounted automatically at startup; you need to edit fstab, create a folder to mount the network folder in and set credentials. I am trying to find a good manual, will post it back... OK, couldn't find it, but it is not that complicated: Install cifs-utils. create a folder to mount the network ...

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 ...
