I'm trying to sort a large number of files into folders using Nautilus. When I drag a file into a window showing many folders, Nautilus will open a folder automatically if I hover for too long on one. This completely disrupts my workflow, as I want to keep the view on the set of folders, not to view the contents of one. Is there a gsettings option or something to turn this behaviour off?
I have a file server running which servers NFS and SAMBA. Although I get much higher transfer rates with NFS, and also listing the content of a folder with ls in the terminal is fast, it takes ages to get Nautilus to display the content (1000s of files). However, Windows' Explorer (accessing the same folder via SMB) displays the content at least 10x faster.
I noticed that a lot of my folders had suddenly switched to higher view sizes than I had specificied. I was assuming that somehow nautilus had suddenly decided to create per-folder entries for said folders with incorrect view sizes.
So I found this question: How to reset all per-folder view settings in nautilus?
I'm trying to view access files from another partition on my fedora 17 box, but it says "The folder contents could not be displayed. You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "alex"".
I'm running nautilus on Fedora 17 in an account with the same user name and password that owns the files from the other partition, which probably doesn't mean anything.
The filemanager in 12.04 allowed me to open a folder while the other files and folders remained in view. I found that to be really useful. The new filemanager works more like windows where the only way you can see the files in a folder is to click on the folder, replacing the view of the current directory with the contents of the clicked folder.
I received my Note 2 about two months ago. Up until today, the hover feature on the S Pen has been working fine. When I hover over the screen, it responds as if I am using my finger. But today, the S Pen lost it's hover feature. I ordered a replacement S Pen, but the hover is still not there. When I try to hover with air view on, this shows up (See Picture).
In my setup I tend to symlink major user folders in Linux to their Windows equivalents, IE Downloads, Documents, Pictures, Videos, etc. Usually I make sure nautilus isn't running before I do it and the default list of folders under "Computer" stays the same
However my last change I forgot to do this and now the 4 folders above are filed under Bookmarks.
