Re: Nautilus alway shows system files........ahhh

It looks like the 'org.gnome.nautilus.preferences show-hidden-files' key is deprecated, try this instead:
gsettings set org.gtk.Settings.FileChooser show-hidden false

FWIW, what Gareth Jones posted in http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showth...36#post1673436 would work as the GUI option in Nautilus preferences controls "org.gtk.Settings.FileChooser show-hidden".

(You can open Nautilus preferences from the AppMenu, when Nautilus is open and focused look at the top panel in gnome-shell, next to "Activities" in the top-left-hand corner you'll see Nautilus icon, click it and select Preferences).

Re: Nautilus alway shows system files........ahhh

I had that happen to me once I just opened Nautilus and clicked on Files in the top bar then Prefrences and under the View tab there is an entry called Show hidden and backup files. I unchecked it and clicked close.

Re: Nautilus alway shows system files........ahhh

I can tell you where is not coming from.

Nautilus.

Works fine here.

Maybe you could set the debug flags and see what it tells you?
Code:
GTK+ Options
  --class=CLASS               Program class as used by the window manager
  --name=NAME                 Program name as used by the window manager
  --gdk-debug=FLAGS           GDK debugging flags to set
  --gdk-no-debug=FLAGS        GDK debugging flags to unset
  --gtk-module=MODULES        Load additional GTK+ modules
  --g-fatal-warnings          Make all warnings fatal
  --gtk-debug=FLAGS           GTK+ debugging flags to set
  --gtk-no-debug=FLAGS        GTK+ debugging flags to unset
or use strace to see what it is doing.

when you do CTRL+H.

Re: Nautilus alway shows system files........ahhh

Initiating nautilus with strace.
Code:
$ strace nautilus --no-desktop
Attaching strace to nautilus:

Get the PID (Process Identification or Process ID or something)
Code:
$ ps aux | egrep -i nautilus
tron      2605  0.0  4.3 1930484 351792 ?      Sl   Aug18   8:22 /usr/bin/nautilus --no-default-window

or

$ ps -C nautilus
Then attach strace to it.

Code:
$ strace -p 2605
whatch what it shows you and then execute some action that you wanna know what it is doing.

Strace can tell you what files a program access and where they are, useful to find hidden configuration files, and more.

And I don't understand why the system is doing so.

Is it a bug? I hope so,...
Same happened in Fedora 20, gnome Versioon 3.10.2, nautilus 3.10.1, but I figured out that hidden files are shown by default after I check show hidden files under file selector dialog on Open file, be in gedit or gimp but funny bug it applies that action globally to nautilus as well.

Re: Nautilus alway shows system files........ahhh

I use Gnome. I start files (nautilus), A window opens and also on the top bar, there is a Files icon. I click on the files icon with the right mouse button,
When I do that, there is a window that opens and it contains.

New Window

Connect to Server

Bookmarks

Preferences

Help

About

Quit


Open Preferences and uncheck Show hidden and backup files

Re: Nautilus alway shows system files........ahhh

This may seem odd, but I read somewhere that dconf and gsettings are two different things actually, they store their settings in different places, so you may want to edit the dconf using the dconf dump and then dconf load.

Maybe it works.

The only other thing that may have already been mentioned is the where gnome actually stores those options for the session, I am not sure but I think Gnome store the settings in one place and how they were set during the session in a different place, then you have to find those files and delete them to see if they are not overriden the gsettings.

Code:
FILES

$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/config/autostart $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS/config/autostart /usr/share/gnome/autostart
The applications defined in those directories will be started on login. gnome-session-properties(1) can be used to easily configure them.
$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/gnome-session/sessions $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS/gnome-session/sessions $XDG_DATA_DIRS/gnome-session/sessions
These directories contain the .session files that can be used with the --session option.
$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/gnome-session/saved-session
This directory contains the list of applications of the saved session.

source:
man -Hgoogle-chrome gnome-session

$XDG_CONFIG_HOME = $HOME = ~

There is another place I think it is tracker or something that also store info on the position and size of windows and do have a database somewhere.

Resources:

Code:
$ man -wi --wildcard *tracker*
/usr/share/man/man1/tracker-control.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/tracker-extract.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/tracker-import.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/tracker-info.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/tracker-miner-fs.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/tracker-needle.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/tracker-preferences.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/tracker-search.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/tracker-sparql.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/tracker-stats.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/tracker-store.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/tracker-tag.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/tracker-writeback.1.gz
Code:
$ man -wi --wildcard *gnome*
.
.
.
/usr/share/man/man7/gnome-options.7.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/gnome-settings-daemon.1.gz
ps: for the full list just run the command on your terminal, it was bit long so I just copy/paste the ones I didn't mention and could be relevant.
