Question Nautilus (Files) problems

Community,

I've installed fresh Fedora 17 and programs I'm going to use. There are two problems:
  1. Using dconf editor I can edit the way files and folders are moved to trash by pressing only Delete button, but after reboot the setting disappears and it is again Ctrl-Del;
  2. When I boot up my system, the desktop is not handled by Nautilus, then I need to run Files (Documents e.g.) from the Menu to make it handle the desktop. Though it was set correctly in Advanced Settings (gnome-tweak tool).

What's wrong with those things? Thank you for any input. I'm using Gnome.

Re: Nautilus (Files) problems

For the first problem try to edit the config file by hand.
In '~/.gnome2/accels/nautilus' search for a line containing:
Code:
; (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/DirViewActions/Trash" "<Primary>Delete")
and change to:
Code:
(gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/DirViewActions/Trash" "Delete")

The second point, make nautilus handle your desktop.. just add it to your autostart programs.
gnome-session-properties -> add -> command: nautilus -n

Re: Nautilus (Files) problems

Thank you for your answer, when I open terminal (under myself) and cd to .gnome2 folder, I see:
Code:
[docmccoy@laptop ~]$ cd .gnome2/
[docmccoy@laptop .gnome2]$ ls -l
total 8
drwx------. 2 docmccoy docmccoy 4096 Jan  1 22:42 keyrings
drwxr-xr-x. 2 docmccoy docmccoy 4096 Jan  1 20:16 nautilus-scripts
There is no nautilus file under both folders...

Re: Nautilus (Files) problems

Then the correct path should be '~/.config/nautilus/accels'.
I thought this has changed with the 3.6 release...obviously wrong...

Very close though under '~/.config/nautilus/' there is only 'desktop-metadata' file which is not about accels.. And Search for Files tool does not find any file with name containing 'accels'.

I found the file in Gnome 3.8 under F18 at .config/nautilus/accels however, the file is automatically generated and changing that line is automatically overwritten the next time you open files. Changing that line there has no effect whatsoever.

In addition, can change accels is active in dconf-editor, and other apps just use delete key to remove, eg picture viewer. I tried installing pcmanfm and setting delete to just delete key, but it already was. I wonder if they hard-coded 'you must press "ctrl+delete' to delete stuf' into Files.

Disregard last post. I didn't see that Smoking tux also said to delete the ; at the start of the line. Works great once you do that. Thanks smoking tux. Not my thread, but was an itch I've been trying to scratch.

Re: Nautilus (Files) problems

In Fedora 17, most popular at the moment release, it is IMPOSSIBLE to find a nautilus configuration file!!! So What Smoking Tux suggested simply does not work..

Re: Nautilus (Files) problems

I just tried it on a fresh installed f17 and.. you are right, there is really no config file.
Don't ask why, I've absolutely no clue. Maybe a new stroke of genius by the gnome devs..
Anyway, it is working (for me at least) if you create a file '~/.gnome2/accels/nautilus' with following content:
Code:
(gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/DirViewActions/Trash" "Delete")

Re: Nautilus (Files) problems

The op's wish isn't to bypass the trash but to change the keybinding to move a file to trash..

Yup, that's why I deleted the post.

I misunderstood. Sorry, that I wasn't quick enough on the delete.
