Try nautilus -q or sudo nautilus -q. Logging out and back in should also restart nautilus.

Finally solved it! I don't know why but Nautilus 3.10 treats in an odd way the ~/.ssh/config file, or at least this is what I've experienced. This is how my ~/.ssh/config file looks like: Host aws_host HostName [host ip addres] User ubuntu IdentityFile ~/.ssh/your_key.pem DO NOT use your DNS name on your "Host" OR "HostName" variables or you may ...

Got the same problem (today), with the same output with nautilus -c. And as far as I know, nothing to do with nautilus-scripts. Tried to logout, which seemed to be wrong solution. As I tried to login again, all I got was nice ubuntu background image and mouse cursor. No launcher, no top bar. Then: CTRL+ALT+F1 (at least this worked), did login and then ...

Open ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs and find XDG_TEMPLATE_DIR. Make sure that it looks like this: XDG_TEMPLATE_DIR=$HOME/Templates If not, change the value so that it looks like that.

You will have this error if using XRDP. You need to login directly to Xwindow from KVM.

The above didnt work for me however i did find a bit of a clunky work around. the trick i have used is to "mount" the remote folder and trick deja dup in thinking its a local folder. Im not sure if i can link being a newbie but look up mounting ssh drives and/or doing it via CIFS. i know it wont be secure as SSH but on a small home network it works for ...

On KDE System Settings > Startup and Shutdown > Session management, write "nautilus" on the field "Applications to be excluded from sessions:". It is better than selecting "Start with an empty session" because you don't lose the functionality of having you previous session restored.

Nautilus does not have a command line option to open a new tab, however, you can "fake" it with the help of a script, using xdotool and wmctrl. How to use Install (if necessary) both wmctrl and xdotool: sudo apt-get install xdotool wmctrl Copy the script below into an empty file, save it as nautilus_tab (no extension) in ~/bin, and make it executable. ...

Personally, I always run meld from the terminal, so I give the two file names there: meld fileA fileB Using the GUI, all you need to do is select two files. I don't see why you need to "compare it to nothing". You just select the first file and then the second:

Yes, it is problably gvfs related. The problem is this bug: gvfs should unmount remote mounts on network disconnect Running this should allow you to use nautilus again. gvfs-mount -s sftp & gvfs-mount -s smb & gvfs-mount -s ftp Can take a few seconds to work You can run it automatically. You have to write a script and save it as: ...

Yes, There two solutions. the simplies is to use a control point like http://www.eezupnp.de/ With this control point you can play both files from media server like ushare and also from the hard disk directly The other solution is to use nautilus context menu plugin from Coherence-Nautilus-Send file for playback This one is a little more complicated since ...

To achieve this we will edit nautilus.css. We will do this for the current user and not system-wide. Copying your theme to your home folder Open a terminal: mkdir ~/.themes/ cp -R /usr/share/themes/Ambiance/ ~/.themes/ (if you are not using the Ambiance theme (default), you will need to adapt the last command) Editing nautilus.css In a terminal open ...

nautilus always connects to the user directory of the server, and I did not figure a way out to connect directly to "/" , this is a working workaround. If you specify a Path when connecting, You can go back in the filesystem of the Server (or, for me, my iPhone). See that you got the option to go back in the top. Then you can click on "[user] on [the ...

The way to block the autoopen behaviour I think can only be done globally. Any other disk inserted will also affected. Please try, Open terminal application Then type the following, and hit enter. gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.media-handling automount-open false If no error shown, then test the behaviour by reinsert your SD card Reference : ...

I don't think there is a file manager that would do what you want if you don't count apps like Midnight Commander which can be configured to show contents of any file in a side panel. From what you describe, you want the readme file in current directory shown no matter which file in that directory is currently active. Additionally, if you are talking GitHub, ...

This requirement is too specific. You will not find this option in a normal file manager. As workaround, you could start your filemanager with a script like this, but that has nothing to do with comfort: nano /usr/local/bin/openloc Add the following lines #!/bin/bash searchpath="$1" searchpath="${searchpath//~/$HOME}" openwith="gedit" "$openwith" ...

ReadMe files are just plain text files and can be opened in gedit or similar text editors. You can also try sushi which is a previewer for nautilus. In addition, you can even view the contents of readme files in the terminal by: cat path/to/your/readme/file

Using Alt+Tab you should be able to go to the copying window. Also, when you click on the "file manager" icon, a new file manager window will appear. Click again on the file manager icon and you should see a "window spread". One window is the file operations window. You even have a third method: press Super+W and you see a window spread of all open ...

Thanks to all contributors, sorry for not monitoring it as closely as I should have done. The problem with Ubuntu 14.04 (as above) went away with Ubuntu 14.10, which works fine with both OS/400 at versions of V5r4 and v7r1 (I don't know about v6r1, or v7r2).

Roman's solution will work, but actually there's no need to copy the entire Ambiance theme to your .themes directory. Instead, you can simply create a file ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css and put any changes you want there, such as NautilusWindow * .view { background-color: #D8D8D8; } Then restart Nautilus. The definition in your gtk.css file will override ...

I have a very similar problem, similar error message, but to another Ubuntu 14.04 server. It turns out Nautilus is not able to pop up a key-change message and ask for permission to continue and replace the key. When I connected using the sftp servername command, I was able to replace the offending key and then Nautilus connected fine. While this is not ...

For some reason, the shortcut listed for "Enter Location" wasn't practically doing anything. I found I was able to get where I needed to by opening a terminal and entering nautilus /home/me/path/to/what/I/want

What happens Your assumption that the downloaded files "landed" in the "blind" area is correct: You can get the icons position with the command: gvfs-info <item> This outputs the coordinates 64,1382 (x/y), which makes clear the icon is positioned below the left screen (1382 > 1080). This is most likely the result of a bug. The script below can be ...

It's a bug in nautilus 3.14.2. As of now, no nautilus updates available, and no workarounds suggested within the bug report; if you really want to fix this, downgrading nautilus should do.
