Ever since my upgrade to 12.04, I've been having problems with dragging and dropping in unity.
When I start dragging something, the unity launcher will fade (or show if it is hidden) and if I try to drop whatever I'm dragging while it is doing that, the file won't drop. If i drop really fast before the launcher fades, it works fine.
I was dragging and dropping files between two nautilus windows in Ubuntu 14.04 and suddenly it hung, and then crashed. After the crash literally everything I have saved ro moved since the last reboot is gone. I am at a total loss, I have never experienced anything like this in 15 years of using linux. Is there a way to recover and how can I be sure nautilus won't do this again?
Is there a way to disable the screen fade which happens when a gui application asks for the users password (i.e. when gksudo is used i believe).For example, when starting synaptic most of the time. I find it annoying, and it doesn't fade cleanly on my system, so i'd prefer just not to have it. But my google-fu is weak.
When copying a file from a network share (SMB on my Macbook) using Nautilus, I get an error complaining, "Error while copying 'Folder-name.' 'X' is a folder. I know that I'm copying a folder, and that's what I want. I can copy files one by one or in groups of files, but not entire folders. So I have to believe that it's not related to permissions.
I connect my Nexus to my computer via USB often. I can see and transfer files to and from my computer and/or phone.
However, lately, when I try to back up my files by simply dragging and dropping all the folders contained in "Internal Storage" (about 42 total folders) to a folder on my computer - the phone will take forever to process this information.
I bought a iomega 1000gb USB hard drive. I use it to back up by dragging and dropping my home folder to it. This works fine. The problem is its full. If I try to delete files when I come to use the trash applet it comes up with a message in nautilus about preparing to delete. Half an hour later it still says the same. Is there a way to do this at less than geological speed?
I want to have my screen lock and backlight fade out after some delay, and then I want to have the backlight fade back in when I move the cursor or press a button. Having the screen fade out is easy enough with xautolock, but I can't figure out a way to have to fade back in when I do a keyboard or mouse action. Is it possible to achieve this with xautolock, or perhaps another tool?
So ever since i upgraded to kitkat 4.4.2, there is a fade effect on my homescreen, when i open an app or play a game it goes away, but when i go back to my homescreen the fade effect comes back, i have an lg optimus l9 ii, does anyone know how to disable it or turn the effect off ?
