Depends on version of glib, the change was in the Gio module starting in the 2.35 series. The thumbnail cache directory is prefixed with $XDG_CACHE_DIR/ and the leading dot removed (since $XDG_CACHE_DIR is normally $HOME/.cache). The glib ChangeLog indicates the path for large sizes was "fixed" (Added $XDG_CACHE_DIR) starting with 2.35.3 so as to match ...

If other things are working, you can get back unity by installing the ubuntu-desktop package. You can boot to gnome fallback, open a terminal and run the following command: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop After the installation, you will get the option to boot into Unity (I think it displays as "Ubuntu")

A column named Folder Size, which really displays the total amount in appropriate selectable format kB /MB /GB, that's what normally would be expected. Not many people are interested in the number of files especially in a column named "Size". Working with Windows XP , I was using program FolderSize , which integrates such feature into Explorer. It works ...

You can try tagspaces. In comparison to other tools, it is not using database, but saves the tags in the name of the files. This approach makes the tagging information easily portable across different devices and operating systems, just by synching the files with for example dropbox, google drive or bittorrent sync.

I've experienced the same issue (Ubuntu 12.10 - Gnome desktop) after updating librsvg packages to 2.36.3-0ubuntu1.1. Downgrading them manually to 2.36.2-0ubuntu1 fixed the issue. You need to downgrade librsvg and librsvg-common. Hope this helps,

When you have a network drive mounted to your computer, it means it has to update the status every time you open nautilus. Because the drive will appear in the left pane where your bookmarks are. My suggestion will be to unmount the drive when not used, in order to prevent the time it takes to load it every time nautilus is open, OR you could let a window ...

For 14.04 There's also this Nautilus script you could use instead of the dedicated extension: #!/usr/bin/perl -w # # Open terminal here # # Nautilus script that opens a gnome-terminal at the current location, if it's # a valid one. This could be done in shell script, but I love Perl!. # # 20020930 -- Javier Donaire <jyuyu@fraguel.org> # ...

After installing nautilus-open-terminal, ensure that you have killed all nautilus processes (there's always one non visible nautilus process running, so use pgrep nautilus to find them and use then use the kill command). Then if you launch nautilus, you should see the Open in Terminal if you right-click in the list of files, like I did in the screenshot ...

I am not sure whether you prefer only nautilus, but I am writing in a hope that you would like this. You have helped me many times hope I'll return the same at least once. XFE can display the path bar and address bar in much better way. Here are some images: I found this file manager so useful and currently I'm sticking to it :) To install in ...

Inbuilt shortcut You can drag files while holding down CTRL to copy them.

There is an an extra line feed at the end of "NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_SELECTED_FILE_PATHS" that causes trouble when i try to add double quotes for the correct file detection. I've changed the nice suggestion from souravc so it works perfect for me (line feed at the end removed, double quotes added so there no problems with filenames with spaces). #!/bin/bash # ...

This behaviour was changed from remembering the view settings on a folder-by-folder basis to remembering the view settings on a window-by-window basis. See the bugs: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nautilus/+bug/1152226 and the upstream bug: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=682017 I'm not sure that this was a good user design change. ...

Suppose you have file names.txt with all this images names. Create a new folder for copies: mkdir copies Now do a little test. This should output all filenames for name in `sed -r 's/,/\n/g;s/ *//g' names.txt`; do echo $name; done If this works fine do next step. Finally do a copies to copies folder. I suppose you execute this in a folder where ...

I'll presume that you have the list of names in a file at /path/to/target_names. To make the copies, open an terminal and cd to the directory containing this file. Then run for i in $( </path/to/target_names tr -d ',' ); do cp grey.png ${i}; done Instead of copying, which will multiply the size required by the number of new files, you could use using ...

Try formatting it into ext4 format, then again format it in FAT. And you can also try the command , sudo rm /media/me/USB/* . Be sure to copy your files before formatting.

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 ...

I know one's not supposed to ask for clarifications, but, it seems to me that the reason you are not getting any answers is that you are not providing enough information.

There's an open bug about this problem in launchpad: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nautilus-python/+bug/1203349 Basically, a 0 length file or a corrupted file sitting in a folder are enough to make nautilus crash when it tries to build their thumbnail. The fastest solution seems to be to open a terminal and rm path/to/zero-length-file (if ...

Okay, it turned out to be what I think is a caching problem. The parent directory was already open in Nautilus when I did the mkdir. When the new directory did not appear, I restarted Nautilus and navigated to the parent directory but the new directory was still missing. After posting the question, I did a Ctrl+R in the parent directory and the new directory ...

You can also do gnome-open .. gnome-open is similar to open on Mac which tries to open the file using the best matching application. By default, gnome-open . on Ubuntu will open the current directory in Nautilus. There is an open command in Ubuntu as well but it does not work in this case.

Most USB flash drives are formatted with FAT32. This is a simple filesystem with no journaling or other fancy features. Data is only written if metadata or file contents get modified unless you set the mount policy to read-only. For Linux distributions, you could do this by adding the ro option when manually mounting a partition with the mount program. You ...

I can't find the preferences dialog (and the hud is empty) but in between you may configure something using dconf-editor (installing the package dconf-editor) and modify some value in org.gnome.nautilus. I use it to switch on treeview in list : org.gnome.nautilus.list-view.use-tree-view

Create inside the /media directory the directory where you want to mount your dvd. In example mkdir /media/sasha Then figure out where your dvd can be found using the command lshw and look for something like /dev/srX where X is a digit. In my case the dvd was on sr0 so I needed to execute: mount -t iso9660 -o loop /dev/sr0 /media/sasha

I tried the same operation on my system and there's no consequences as /dev/sdb will be recreated if you unplug/plug again your device. You won't be able to eject your device cleanly though as the block device has been deleted. So if there's no I/O operations in progress just unplug it and replug. Otherwise wait till a possible copy operation has finished.

If you maximize nautilus and then close it, the next time you open it, it will be maximized. I think that is what you are asking. Otherwise, please elaborate on what you are trying to accomplish.
