[Solved] Ex-windows user looking for some similar functios.

Postby Nino Draven on Sat Jan 19, 2013 2:50 am

Hello mint community.
First off, I am running mint 14 64-bit with Cinnamon.
And here's my relatively small issue: When I open a folder in the file manager, say /home/nino/Desktop/whatever, at the top panel of the window it shows me the location of it with clickable icons for fast access to the folders that contain my current folder. In win7 I was able to click next to the last folder and a location bar would open up where I was able to type/copy/paste a location that I wanted to visit. For example if I was in C:/Program Files/SomeProgram I could just delete the SomeProgram part and replace it with SomeOtherProgram, press enter and go to said folder. Is there a way to do that in linux? If not, is there a way to open a folder in the file manager by pasting it's location in the terminal?

Thank you in advance.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Thank you very much for your reply.
I take it the file manager is called Nemo. Is there a webpage where I can review it's hotkeys and whatnot?

Yep, Nemo is the default file manager for Cinnamon.
I don't know if there's a specific webpage for its shortcuts, but it's a fork of Nautilus (the file manager for gnome), so the shortcuts should be more or less the same.
Though I don't know if there's a specific page for nautilus' shortcuts either.
For starters: http://www.ihaveapc.com/2011/05/list-of ... shortcuts/
I'm afraid you'll have to wait for someone more knowledgeable on the subject (or do some googling on nemo and nautilus).
