I'm the maintainer of subliminal. Latest version of subliminal (1.0.1 as I'm writing this) brings a lot of fixes and a brand new command line interface that is much easier to work with and nicer to look. There is a soon-to-be-released example that integrates subliminal with the Nautilus file manager to add a right click context menu. Screenshot and install ...

The changes are not permanent, therefore Edit the file /etc/sysctl.conf sudo nano /etc/sysctl.conf Add the line below, eg fs.inotify.max_user_watches=1000000 Reload the changes sudo sysctl -p You should see something like this fs.inotify.max_user_watches = 1000000 and with cat /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches 1000000

To kill any GUI program which freezes use xkill command. xkill is very useful in situations like thesse. I suggest you make a xkill keyboard shortcut.

You could, from a TTY, try reinstalling the ubuntu-desktop packages. sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop sudo apt-get install --reinstall unity This will try to do a fresh install of the Unity environment over whatever is already there, which should fix any issues you are having.

nautilus is a file manager in Ubuntu. sudo is declaring that you are a root (it is something like an adminstrator in Windows). So, when you type the command sudo nautilus , you are entering the file manager as a root. Being root gives you some extra abilities that normal user doesn't have.

You could try putting them on a diet, however this may work better than that: ;-) Open the Preferences menu via the Files menu Set the Default zoom level to Small Close the Nautilus Window and open another one Default Small

Steps I've taken I looked into the Nautilus preferences just in case you missed something. You know. Just in case. I looked into the hidden preferences of Nautilus using dconf-editor, in case the option is there but just hidden away. I searched online for a few minutes for solutions I glanced at the source code of the version of Nautilus included in Ubuntu ...

Not many commands can achieve this without any headache. One of the successful, that I know of, is xdotool and even this is somewhat debatable. So you can extend the shortcut to this line: nautilus -w --browser /home & xdotool search --sync --onlyvisible --class nautilus windowactivate

The extension for this menu entry is in the package deja-dup. % apt-file search /usr/lib/nautilus/extensions-3.0/libdeja-dup.so deja-dup: /usr/lib/nautilus/extensions-3.0/libdeja-dup.so Therefore and as you don't use backups (really? You should read this.), a simple solution. Remove Déjà Dup from your system: sudo apt-get remove deja-dup and the menu ...

It is unfortunate the Nautilus is not more user-friendly. The mentioned option cannot be removed neither form preferences nor from Nautilus actions tool. The easiest way to do it is to make changes to nautilus extensions. In the extensions folder rename: /usr/lib/nautilus/extensions-3.0/libdeja-dup.so to e.g. ...
