Filed under: Linux — Tags: , , , — Christopher Kramer @ 15:14

To hide hidden files and folders in Nautilus in Ubuntu Gnome 15.05, type this in a terminal:

gsettings set org.gtk.Settings.FileChooser show-hidden false

If you want to see hidden files from time to time, press CTRL + H in a nautilus window.

Ubuntu Gnome: Sort folders first in Nautilus

Filed under: Linux — Tags: , , , — Christopher Kramer @ 14:56

If you prefer to have the folders at the beginning in Nautilus, just type this command in a terminal:

gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.preferences sort-directories-first true

Works in Ubuntu Gnome 15.04

Ubuntu Gnome: Find file starting with the letter you type in Nautilus

Filed under: Linux — Tags: , , , — Christopher Kramer @ 14:49

New nautilus versions start searching for what you start typing inside a folder. If you instead prefer to jump to the files starting with what you type, just like Windows Explorer behaves, type this in a terminal:

gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.preferences enable-interactive-search true

Works on Ubuntu Gnome 15.04

RabbitVCS on Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 Trusty Tahr

Filed under: Linux — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — Christopher Kramer @ 11:38

I installed RabbtVCS on Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 Trusty Tahr from the Ubuntu repositories (rabbitvcs-nautilus) and it did not integrate into Nautilus. It also seemed to cause other strange effects (mouse wheel not working any more, …?).

Installing the latest version from the RabbitVCS PPA fixed all this:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rabbitvcs/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rabbitvcs-nautilus3

Hope this saves somebody half an hour figuring out how to solve this 😉
