Thanks! smile

I have installed Nautilus and edited the menu so that it starts when I select File Manager. All good. But, when I start Nautilus from a terminal with the command sudo nautilus many of my shortcuts are missing and I wonder why? See scrot below:


The one on the left is opened with the menu and the one on the right with the terminal.

EDIT: Also, is there a way to open the folder I navigated to in Nautilus as root without having to open a new sudo Nautilus window and navigate to the folder again?

I got a letter and a package yesterday. One was full of #! stickers and one contained a brand spanking new Jolla phone. Christmas indeed smile At the end of the day though the stickers was what I was most happy about. imaginethat.png Getting a operating system for free is great and sometimes I forget what a privilege it is to be able to choose from such a wealth of software without having pay a penny. I must not take it for granted. So many people worked for so many hours for me to be able to choose the OS for my computer. A free one. There is good in people and the stickers remind me of that. Thank you!

#14 Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Can't send file from phone to PC - Bluetooth » 2013-12-19 18:38:29

Replies: 0

I have added the bluetooth applet to the startup script and I can connect a bluetooth mouse and send files from my PC to my phone, but I can not send files to the PC (specs in sign) I get an instant error on the phone declaring that the file can not be sent. I have tried with movies and pictures. The strange thing is that I can send files to the phone from my PC just fine. I can also send files from my phone to other computers in my home, so bluetooth is working on the phone. I must be missing something smile

Also when I right-click on the bluetooth applet icon and select "Bluetooth settings" nothing happends, I get no window with options.

Also (sorry, I ask so many questions) The bluetooth applet icon is black and all my other tint2 icons are white.

Any thoughts? Kiitos!

Thanks a lot! Your example code did it!

I thought I was using a mono font (the default sans-serif) but it sure looks better when I use Courier instead smile Is there like a list of mono fonts that are already in #! (that don't have to be downloaded) ?

Do you really need to recover that space?  How big is your hard drive?  If you don't need the space I would just leave it (the Swap).

My ssd is 240Gb and #! is installed alongside win7. I think I have almost 200Gb left, so no I don't really need the space, but that is beside the point wink I want to know if I need swap or not since I have so much ram. I do this mostly for fun and to learn more.

I think I'll just try it and see how everything goes, using that what pvsage wrote. But before I do, is there an easy way to do a backup of my current setup? Like maybe a snapshot to fall back on?

If you don't plan to use Hibernation then you should be fine without swap. However I would not recommend deleting all of your Swapspace, because if - for whatever reason (Like, for example, Firefox has a memory leak.) - you run out of memory the kernel can't swap things out and will therefore start randomly killing processes in order to stay "alive".

I see. I must ask though, theoretically, if ram is full and I have some swap, won't just the berserking program (maby firefox) fill that up as well? Right now I have 1.6Gb of swap and as stated 16Gb of ram. If something manages to fill 16Gb ram then 1.6Gb would just be dessert no?

I must also ad that I don't do anything ram heavy, just web surfing, movies and a bit of gaming. The 16Gb of ram is overkill for me, but they came with the computer so now I just try to make the most of what I have smile

Thank you for your answers!

Thank for the answers guys. I feel safe to remove the swap now.

So, I have to delete it in gparted, that I can do. How do I take it out of fstab?

Do I need a swap partition when the pc has 16Gb of ram?

If I choose to delete it, what do I have to do? Open up gparted and just delete it?

Good morning,

I have a NAS and have made shortcuts to a few folders (video, pictures etc) in Thunar, but they disappear when I reboot. How do I make them stick? Is there another filemanager that I should try?  Is Thunar generally the filemanager of choice? I used to like Norton Commander,  is there a modern user friendly alternative?

Strongly considering eBaying my MacBook Air and replacing with a #!'d X230 or System76 Galago UltraPro.

I can recomend the X230 and crunchbang, it's a nice combo. Depending on were you live you might be able to get one cheap from eBay. And go for the IPS, totally worth the extra $.
