On right click you will have an option under scripts, Open folder as root. And you can open a folder as root after providing your root password. ...

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 ...

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 ...

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

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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: ...

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 ...

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 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 ...

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.

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 ...

I'm connecting to remote server using ssh and this works for me. Nautilus (my version 3.8.2) saves it's thumbnails in ~/.thumbnails and ~/.cache/thumbnails. By default it shows thumbnails only for local files, but you could change it in preferences. And if the mount point for you remote server is the same, nautilus saves those thumbnails. And this I ...
