There is a fix for FS icons on this link How to fix huge FS Icons in Ubuntu 15.04 menubars? I have tried with FS icons and it works for me, fixing the issue you report and also the huge icons in menus and titles. It did not fix other icon sets though :-(

which soft are you using? for example,ftp or just LAN shared files? When typing IP address on Nautilus, Nautilus have to decide which software to use. so assume your RPI IP is 192.168.1.2, if your RPI were using ftp ,then type : ftp://192.168.1.2. (sftp maybe the same, I haven't used) if you are using LAN shared files, make sure the directory of RPI has been ...

I have a Nautilus extension that hopefully does what you're looking for. See the following website: nautilus-new-folder-from-template This extension allows you to create directory-templates, and choose from among them using the right-click context menu.

gksudo seems appropriate: gksudo nautilus / & From the gksudo man page: gksu is a frontend to su and gksudo is a frontend to sudo. Their pri‐ mary purpose is to run graphical commands that need root without the need to run an X terminal emulator and using su directly. Note: if gksudo is not available for your release of Ubuntu you can ...

Try xdg-su -c "nautilus /" & I use xdg-su whenever I run into problems opening gui applications with sudo From xdg-su --help: xdg-su ? run a GUI program as root after prompting for the root password Synopsis xdg-su [-u user] -c command Not sure if xdg-su comes out of the box with ubuntu. If not, try what Sylvain Pineau suggested, gksudo

Using the pure CLI way ;) sudo -i nautilus / & disown disown – Remove jobs from the table of active jobs sudo -i – Run the shell specified by the target user's password database entry as a login shell.

just kill the command again: go the terminal from which you run the command sudo nautilus and then press the key Ctrl+C Or easily just close the terminal by clicking on X, this would kill nautilus process

I can set it on Ubuntu 14. not trying other versions. Edit -> Preferences -> File Preferences -> Display. Check "Navigate folders in a tree" in "List View". Now you can use left, right arrow key to open and close folders.

Simple as checking a box. And then you can use <- and -> arrow key to open and close folders.

Perhaps it would be wiser to move the files to a Trash folder rather than to delete them altogether.You can achieve this by selecting script from nautilus context menu. I can't tell what script you are referring to, but this one will do just fine. So, create the script, make it executable and place it in the nautilus script folder. #!/bin/bash ...

First Method: Create a new script called add-to-vlc inside the directory ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts Add this to the file: #!/bin/bash for File in "$@" do if [ -d "$File" ]; then zenity --error --text="'$File' is a directory." exit fi done vlc --one-instance "$File" Give permissions to the file: chmod +x add-to-vlc Now restart nautilus: nautilus -q ...

You can do that using nautilus-action-Configuration-Tool Install the tool using using sudo apt-get install nautilus-action After that close all the open nautilus instances nautilus -q Open nautilus-action-Configuration-Tool. Then click on add new action button and name your action. Click the Command tab and enter the command vlc --one-instance You ...

For the error: E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root? Are you root? it seem you miss to use sudo so just run the command: sudo apt-get purge nautilus-open-terminal Then run: nautilus -q


4

Just use the command apt-get --purge remove nautilus-open-terminal with sudo sudo apt-get --purge remove nautilus-open-terminal This is because some commands require administrative privileges to run, and sudo can give you that. Just be careful that you know what the command is for, when you're using sudo along with it.

If someone is getting the error "SSL Handshake Failed", then exclude the "s" from davs since we are not using SSL i.e. dav://user@hostname:port/path This took me a while to figure out so hopefully this helps some people out there :).

You will need to use terminal once to install software that will allow you to do this task in GUI. You can install it in GUI too, but it is too long to explain. Run in terminal sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/apps sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install open-as-administrator nautilus -q You will get a right-click menu "Open as administrator" ...

Here is the temp solution. Run in terminal: pkill gvfsd-sftp nautilus -q pkill will send SIGTERM to GNOME Virtual File System's sftp module, which seems to be stuck after the VPN connection is lost. After that we restart the nautilus.

To get the file name for the thumbnail, start md5sum for the original file name: % echo -n "file:///home/user/Pictures/image%201.png" | md5sum 6e1669aea9c118cb2b7ad23fc6646c71 - % find ~/.cache/thumbnails -type f -name "6e1669aea9c118cb2b7ad23fc6646c71*" /home/user/.cache/thumbnails/large/6e1669aea9c118cb2b7ad23fc6646c71.png Now remove the read ...

You can use the find utility to delete album covers in our music folders: find /music_path -type f -name "*.jpg" -exec rm -f {} \; Now to remove the "desktop.ini" and "Thumbs.db" files use: find /music_path -type f -name "desktop.ini" -exec rm -f {} \; find /music_path -type f -name "Thumbs.db" -exec rm -f {} \; Tip: You could use the even shorter ...

Use Nautilus [Files icon in the launcher] Open the folder containing the thumbnails and click Edit, select Preferences, click Previews tab. In the Files section Show Thumbnails click the drop down arrow and select never close the Preferences window. Thumbnails should now be gone.

You may use PROGRAM to check if your program is running to activate that UDEV rule, otherwise it is disabled because pgrep returns unsuccessfully.

The device properties are made available to the executed program in the environment. ...

The easiest is just to edit sublime's .desktop & add the -n option to the Exec= line. This works well when one has disabled sublime's default of remembering the last session. To do so just run sudo nano /usr/share/applications/sublime-text.desktop & add -n to the Exec= line so it looks like - Exec=/opt/sublime_text/sublime_text -n %F Also to ...

It is a simple question but a tricky one to answer. I haven't used Sublime myself but problem is similar with Gedit as well. If you prefer you can use Nautilus actions to add a context-menu item. Install it through Software center. If you want to create Nautilus script you will have to use $@ characters as substitution of environment variable ...

The PPA ppa:rabbitvcs/ppa doesn't contain Vivid packages.

After you check the template setting in @David Bailey 's post. You need to create an empty file, to say Text.txt in your $HOME/Templates folder, eg by open a terminal in that folder and echo > Text.txt Then you have a "new document" in context menu. Works for me on UBUNTU 15.04

Thanks for your reply. The file which i am currently working on are very large (around 2-3 GB) so break in connection leads to again transfer of files.If i would have a client i can atleast resume my transfer from where it just lost the connection.

Unmounting gvfs solved the problem for me: umount -fl /home/user/.gvfs rm -rf /home/user/.gvfs I found that solution here

For those who didn't liked the dock solution can simply make use of Nautilus environment variable NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_SELECTED_FILE_PATHS or $@.Write a script, place it in the scripts folder so it will appear in context menu. The advantage is that you can select more files at once. To test it: #!/bin/bash notify-send $NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_SELECTED_FILE_PATHS exit 0 ...

With a little reaserch, I found out what you may be looking for. This can be done using .desktop files. Let me demonstrate. Create a file in your home diretory(as an example) with the extension .desktop with the following content: #!/usr/bin/env xdg-open [Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application Terminal=true Exec=bash <path-to-your-script> %u ...

It turns out that it depends how I connect to the server - through another address it works just fine to make ls in /run/user/{userid}/gvfs/... as proposed also in other posts

The following solution works only for multiple files at once and not for new images. But to do this, I believe, you have to change the source code of ImageJ. Create an additionally private desktop file imagej.desktop. cp /usr/share/applications/imagej.desktop ~/.local/share/applications sudo chown $USER:$USER ~/.local/share/applications/imagej.desktop ...

I don't think there is a problem!! let me explain. If you run the command: $ ls -l /usr/bin/X11 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 1 Apr 8 2014 /usr/bin/X11 -> . As you see above this directory is in deed just a symlink to the current directory which is /usr/bin. So whenever you navigate into this dir you'll remain in same place so you think it's not ...

I'm on LUbuntu 14.04.2 LTS. The file ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE/autostart is empty. But you can edit preferences: In terminal run nano ~/.config/lxsession/Lubuntu/desktop.conf Find the line file_manager/command=pcmanfm Change for file_manager/command=nautilus Restart

I actually figured out what I wanted to do. If you open Nautilus, go to preferences at the top of the page, then change the default viewing zoom %, then it saves it there for everything you open. Now my view is miles better!

Answered in comments by OP: I think I have my head around it now. What I wanted to do was create a usable desktop icon from applications outside of my home directory i.e. nautilus. I think I have achieved this by using the command sudo nautilus in terminal and creating a link to my desktop from /usr/share/applications/Files. Then changing the command in ...
