I am trying to view the files in /etc/security/audit/SERVERNAME/files, but when I gunzip them and then do a cat I get a bunch of garbage with some stuff that makes sense. I need to view this file without having all the garbage. I tried to cat it and vi it without any luck. Can someone show me an easy command to view these files while also uncompressing them at the same time? That would be cool.
I am messing around with Thunar and Openbox, and am wondering:
I'd love a list view instead of a view with icons, which is doable, but it makes it hard to pick out folders from files.
Is there a way to configure thunar, so folders can be displayed in a distinct colour, and if so, where do I go?
I can't find info on this anywhere, but I could swear that when I used to view hidden files in nautilus, what showed up were only the ".name" ones (this would have been back in 10.04). But now it also shows all the backup "name~" files as well.
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'm not impressed with the Gallery app. I installed an micro SD card and loaded hundreds of pictures and videos in many folders. When I go to the Gallery app, it displays all folders on one screen. Is there a way to, first of all, not even show any files in the SD card. And secondly, is there a way to view the files in a tree/folder format instead of viewing all of them on one screen?
I am using CAJA in MINT 16 MATE. I can no longer see the pdf files as preview thumbnails as I could in the previous version when I view directories (some people call then folders) in icon view. Now the icons representing pdf files are simply the pdf logo instead of a preview of the first page of the pdf file. Is there a way to fix this?
I have some files on my external NTFS drive that were copied from a Mac using Paragon NTFS. Back in Windows 7, I'm unable to view said files. I believe they exist because they still occupy space on the drive. Also, I don't currently have access to a Mac.
Here's what I've tried so far :
Tried "ls -a" and "dir /ah" but it doesn't work.
