Open /usr/share/applications/defaults.list (a symlink to /etc/gnome/defaults.list on my system) in Sublime and replace all instances of gedit.desktop with sublime_text.desktop. Save the file and restart your computer - it may be sufficient to log out and back in, but I suspect you'll need to completely quit Gnome for the settings to be reloaded. Once you've ...

If botchniaque's fix doesn't work for you, first check the gvfs mountpoint on your system: mount | grep gvfs On Ubuntu 15.10 it was mounted under /run/user/[USER ID]/gvfs, so the following commands worked for me: sudo umount -fl /run/user/[USER ID]/gvfs sudo rm -rf /run/user/[USER ID]/gvfs

The problem went away after the upgrade of compiz and compiz-config to version 0.9.12.2+15.10.20151015-0ubuntu1 just today. I guess it was a bug or an error in configuration files. But it could be a number of other things as well -- a lot of things were upgraded.

You can do it with a middle mouse button, or right-click and select "open in a new window".

2016-02 I also had my icons disappear. Fixed it by going to "System Settings -> Appearance" and selecting a theme, the setting was blank.

The user account information is stored in /etc/passwd in a default Ubuntu installation. Password information is in /etc/shadow and group information in /etc/group. None of these files should be edited by hand.

Following up KhaosDvorak: The following three commands fixes the problem without installing additional software. It worked great for me on RHEL 7.2 at least: dconf write /org/gnome/nautilus/icon-view/thumbnail-size 128 nautilus -q rm -r ~/.cache/thumbnails/ (This is not written as a comment to KhaosDvorak since I cannot comment due to just having signed ...

I have this too, and this is probably because you have bookmarked a network drive, the fact you mention previously using Samba is very telling. Nautilus seems to want to secure "a network touch" in the "Window Renderer Thread" for every bookmarked device before it renders the window to the desktop environment - not only is this suboptimal, but also it means ...

Yes this is completely normal as you are not the owner root is (root ran the application that you used to format the drive.) You can gain permissions again by opening a terminal and running sudo chmod 666 /dev/sdx (where sdx = the location of the drive.)

Solved mine with gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout ":minimize,maximize,close"

Ok. Here is a solution. Looking through dconf-editor, I realised that gnome is still in control (I do not know how!). Nautilus is not found under apps, anymore. But, rather under gnome. There are answers suggesting that the minimize-freeze problem can be solved by enabling desktop icons to be shown. So, I tried it by enabling desktop icons under ...

If you don't have write permissions set, you cannot remove the directory. In example bellow, even though I am an owner of the directory, I cannot remove it. Once I add write permissions with chmod - everything succeeds. DIR:/xieerqi skolodya@ubuntu:$ ls -dl TESTDIR/ dr-xr-xr-x 2 xieerqi xieerqi 4096 Jan 24 ...

Use this: $ ls /dev/sd𝑋?* | xargs -n1 umount -l enzotib's answer (sudo umount /dev/sd𝑋?*) is right, however Under newer versions of Ubuntu, portable drives should normally be mounted with user permissions (under /media/$USER/drivename), so you don't need sudo. umount /dev/sd𝑋?* will abort at any partition it fails to unmount (for instance, because it ...

You are right that it uses a simple rectangle containing all monitors. That is the best solution currently available for Linux, but it introduces multiple bugs (across the board, not just in the window manager) whenever your arrangement does not fill up the desktop with actual screen space. I have used multiple monitors on Linux for about 6 years now, and ...

Not clear which version of ubuntu are you using. I have tried this on 12.04. Assuming that you are seeing image previews on nautilus, the file manager, click edit/preferences, last tab Preview. Set up the show thumbnails option to never or to other settings to your liking.

Looks like it's a bug related to Dolphin with a fix on the way. https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=353181

1. Start up nautilus with a maximized window To start nautilus with a maximized window, you can use the script below: #!/usr/bin/env python3 import subprocess import time import sys def w_list(): try: pid = subprocess.check_output(["pgrep", "nautilus"]).decode("utf-8").strip() w_list = subprocess.check_output(["wmctrl", ...

Nautilus remembers the windows size. Start it normally and maximize it, then close it. Now when you type nautilus in terminal, it will open up maximised. Tested on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

Or for Ubuntu 14.04, nautilus 3.10-1, with the xdotool package added, just use the following in your .local/share/nautilus/scripts/updirtree file: # In nautilus, the pwd is the actual, not the link path xdotool key ctrl-l xdotool type "$(dirname $(pwd))" " " The final quote should just contain a newline or return (0x0a). The pwd from within nautilus ...

If you are here just to know about "how to navigate to a path inside Ubuntu", then the shortcut to show the address bar in the default file browser(nautilus) is Ctrl+L. Also you might want to start nautilus with sudo root privilege if you plan to navigate to some restricted directory.

Nautilus Shortcuts You can use Alt-Left and Alt-Right to move through your location history. Alt-Left has the same functionality as Backspace. Similarly, Alt-Up and Alt-Down move your location up and down the directory branch visible on the address bar. Example: In the example above Alt-Up would move you to /etc/. Likewise, Alt-Down would move you to ...

I think it may be a bug, I read that gvfsd-trash uses excessive CPU usage, though I did not record this. However, by limiting gvfsd-trash cpu usage I found it resolved the issue. So, hopefully future updates may resolve this issue. I used this here to limit this process, seemed to work for me.

You won't be able to change the translation easily. You'll need to report a bug against the Ubuntu Translations project (source) (source). You can also hunt around the Ubuntu Translations wiki page to find out more about translating.

Why this is a challenging question The question has a few challenges: nautilus does not communicate directly from the command line, to get the currently active directory for example, nor can you "send" the currently opened folder (-window) to another directory from the command line. In the current path, as requested via "NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_CURRENT_URI", ...

It is unfortunately not possible to do this, because of the changes to Nautilus and the removal of /usr/share/nautilus/ui/nautilus-directory-view-ui.xml. It has been asked (June 2012) in the gnome nautilus mailing lists, and it is clear from the developers' responses that one would now have to download the source code, patch it, and then recompile it to ...

Both Nemo and Nautilus have preview functionality. In both cases follow the menu Edit > Preferences and then select the Preview tab. In Nemo the dialogue looks like this: Tweak these settings to your liking. Previews are portrayed for text files, .pdf documents, images and videos (and possibly more). The previews are shown as the file icons, therefore ...

Run following commands in terminal sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nae-team/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nautilus-refresh after installation log out and log in back.

look here. That should do the trick lsmod | grep usb to list all usb modules being loaded right now and then unload these modules with sudo rmmod usb_whatever look here here. But keep in mind, that if you disable that, it could lead to problems if the X-Server is not starting. I think that is not needed because the guest has no right to see other files ...
