nautilis fork ( File manager ) with tree view in sidebar.

2014-02-09 1 min read Fedora Gnome
Was searching for this for sometime now, finally found it. sudo yum install nemo sudo yum list nemo* First just install nemo. Configure nemo not to interfere with default desktop and also make it default handler. So, here are the settings that would do it. gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/applications/component_viewer/exec --type 'string' 'nemo "%s"' gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/trash/command --type 'string' 'nemo "%s"' gsettings set org.nemo.desktop show-desktop-icons false Now, if you need more functionality in file manager then check the list of nemo packages from the output of second command of yum.

New feature in Gnome/Nautilus

2010-12-05 1 min read Fedora Gnome
One of the things that I never realized that I am missing in Nautilus until they put the feature in was this. When a file is being copied and there is conflict, there should be option to rename the new file being copied. Also, if the file being copied is image then a small preview/thumbnail would be good. Yesterday while copying some files, suddenly I noticed that this feature is there now. Continue reading

Logwatch for Linux Systems.

2010-06-02 2 min read Fedora Linux
On my personal <a class="zem_slink freebase/en/client" title="Client (computing)" rel="wikipedia" href="">desktop at home, I like to see the <a class="zem_slink freebase/en/statistics" title="Statistics" rel="wikipedia" href="">statistics at least once a day, for what was installed, what was run with <a class="zem_slink freebase/en/sudo" title="Sudo" rel="homepage" href="">sudo and other such details like <a class="zem_slink freebase/en/kernel" title="Kernel (computing)" rel="wikipedia" href="">kernel errors.

Mount and unmount/umount images(iso/img) from nautilus (Fixed not mounting in Fedora)

2010-03-09 2 min read Fedora Gnome
Get the Nautilus Script <a href="" target="_blank">here. So what is required is that you have the necessary permission to run mount and umount as normal user with sudo command. If you are using gksu or gnomesu then you can change this in the script that you will get. Once you have got the script then you can run the installer for the script that comes in the package. If you are running this is Fedora then you would need to make one more change other than the ones done by the installer, which is to allow sudo from non tty devices. Continue reading
