Nautilus (This doesn't work with Thunar unfortunately, see this bug report) will hide any file or folder that is listed in the file .hidden located in the same directory. There are two ways to hide a folder in Nautilus: Nautilus script Save the following code in a new file in your home folder. Name it Hide. #!/usr/bin/env python import ...

In xubuntu 12.04 you can install ubuntuone-client and ubuntuone-control-panel-qt. Starting ubuntuone-control-panel-qt will then kick off the login and set up your synced folders and everything. Still no thunar integration, but the control panel has enough features that it makes using u1sdtool unnecessary. For older versions, the previous answer below is ...

The Nautilus extension is provided by the package ubuntuone-client-gnome. So if you don't install that package, you shouldn't have to install Nautilus. I removed ubuntuone-client-gnome on my Ubuntu (gnome) system and Ubuntu One still works, there just isn't any integration with Nautilus, Rhythmbox etc.

The name of the program causing Nautilus to show partition in the left side bar is gvfs-gdu-volume. To kill this process, run this command to see the PID of the program sudo ps -e | grep gvfs-gdu-volume In my system, the output is 6642 ? 00:00:00 gvfs-gdu-volume So, I know the PID is 6642, it may vary by time to time. Kill that process with ...

This answer is the result of info provided by Mik in a comment, indicating an answer of his. Shotwell does very well what is asked. Just connect the camera and start it (without mounting it), and run Shotwell . It will try to access the pictures. In this way the camera contents are visible. Selecting some or all of them you can then right-click ...

I've been able to find a workaround for the publishing function of the Ubuntu One client not available from the Thunar. I created a custom action for that. So, whenever I want to publish a file on the Internet, I move it to the Ubuntu one directory, right-click the file, and select the action. The command for the action is following: u1sdtool ...

I have a simple solution. Run this command: exo-preferred-applications I am using Opensuse 11.4 + Gnome 2.32.1 Thunar became default file browser after playing with XFCE, now I back on Gnome. ;-) Edit: This method has been tested on Ubuntu by Park Jun-Hong and found to work.

Prerequisites First install samba sudo apt-get install samba Thunar Shares Open Thunar and Select *Edit > Configure Custom Actions > + * Basic Tab: Name: Samba Public Read Only Command: net usershare add %n %f "" ...

This happened to me as well. I was just experimenting with settings when I found a way to remove the duplicates. It is by no means a solution, but I thought I'd share the observation. There is a setting in Settings Editor called "/desktop-icons/style" and if you change it from the default 2 to 1 and then back to 2, the duplicates are gone... You can ...

I should explain a bit of Linux File System structure to explain this. Most linux file systems do something similar, but I assume ext4, which is the current default. File System Structure inode is the basic block that the file system understands as a logical unit. A directory inode contains references to other inodes. A file inode contains the metadata, ...

Sorry, It seems Thunar does't have this functionality yet (I've exhaustively searched in Google and XFCE Documentation, there is no mentioning of this feature in official docs). Thunar stores it's user configuration changes in ~/.config/Thunar/thunarrc file. The options currently supported are listed here. You can see, there is no settings for shortening ...

Yes, you just need to add a custom download script that invokes your file manager. The script (suppose it's saved to /home/USERNAME/axelopen): #!/bin/bash axel -o $2 -H Cookie:$4 -H Referer:$3 $1 xdg-open $2 don't forget to chmod +x it. Add the custom DL manager to FlashGot: Open Flashgot options, and Add the custom manager, setting the executable ...

Thunar saves its metadata in a special file. You can find it at $HOME/.cache/Thunar/metafile.tbd. This is a database and can be accessed using tbdtool (that is part of tdb-tools) Use it like this: tdbtool $HOME/.cache/Thunar/metafile.tdb To show the contents of the database use the dump command. dump Dump the current database as ...

I do following steps and it works for me: Open /usr/share/gvfs/mounts/network.mount this file using an editor: sudo nano /usr/share/gvfs/mounts/network.mount change AutoMount=true to AutoMount=false. Save file and login again. This will stop Thunar stating the Network every time you run it. Have a nice time.

I'm on Xubuntu 12.04 and using awesome WM. I can confirm that installing gnome-icon-theme-full partly solve the problem. I can also confirm it just install one single package without any excessive dependencies. But it has some side effects. It replaces some Xubuntu customised icons and makes them look weird. So I deleted it. After doing some search, I find ...

The simple way... The quickest way is to create a pcmanfm shell script in /usr/local/bin. This shell script will instead execute thunar Thus: nano ~/pcmanfm copy and paste the following: #!/bin/sh thunar $* & Save chmod 755 ~/pcmanfm sudo mv ~/pcmanfm /usr/local/bin The disadvantage though of this method is that you will lose any desktop ...

I assume this happens in the same way that it can with Dolphin. The fix (at least for 10.10) is to run a few gconf commands to get things back to normal. I suggest you run the following in a terminal: gconftool-2 --set --type=string /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/file/command 'nautilus "%s"' gconftool-2 --set --type=bool ...

Thunar, since version 1.6, has started using the gvfs-metadata daemon to store metadata. The metadata is stored in ~/.local/share/gvfs-metadata, however you can't read it from the files (it's stored in some binary format I think). In order to read metadata you use the gvfs-info command like this: gvfs-info -a metadata:: /some/location Which will ...

This information is stored in the file $HOME/.config/user-dirs.dirs. You can edit this file if you want to change some of the folder names. See the user-dirs.dirs manpage for some more information.

The error is on line 150 if [ -z "$NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_SELECTED_FILE_PATHS" ]; then The variable NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_SELECTED_FILE_PATHS does not exist. You need to replace it by pdf_file defined on line 140. New line 150: if [ -z "$pdf_file" ]; then The adjusted version of the script can be found here.

You can use Ctrl+L as keyboard shorcut to "Open location" in Thunar. If you have set the view in the thunar's menu as View > Location Sector > Pathbar Style. Then when you press Ctrl+L a little window called open location will be open But if you set the view as *View > Location Sector > toolbar Style. The focus will be in the location bar. Hope this ...

It depends a little, on how Thunar handles multiple files. Basically, you can use parallel (website) to handle a lot of files. sudo apt-get install parallel So I would start with the following: parallel avconv -i '{}' '{}.mp3' -- %F By default, it only does one job at a time. If you want to use multiple CPU cores in parallel, try parallel -j 4 ... for ...
