Re: cannot move files to thrash

Would you be kind enough to tell me how this might have gone wrong in the first place and how I might avoid it in the future? Because it was fine up to a couple of months ago. And I had not added anything new to the system.

File manager

Does any one know how to switch my file manager to the earlier version. I am using Mint 17.2 and I think the file manager is Nemo. I am not sure what file manager was used on 17.0 but it had a proper menu bar at the top which allowed hidden files to be displayed under the view menu. i realize I can ...

Re: Firefox slowing down DNS Look up

OK will do. I am now finding Chrome is slow loading up too. If you at my other post regarding the .Thrash. I am not able to thrash any files. It is either delete permanently or nothing.

Re: cannot move files to thrash

The partition would be sda1. I looked under system folder with hidden file enabled. But could not find a .owner. Is this a sub directory.? If so, please tell me where to look.

Thanks

Re: Firefox slowing down DNS Look up

Hi, where should I create the new user account? On FF, the website or the OS? Except for the OS I do not use any accounts. Please clarify.

Re: Firefox slowing down DNS Look up

Thanks. I did what you said but it did not really seem to improve it. FF takes 3 minutes to load

while chrome does it in an instant.

I have a feeling it has to do with a bug linked with a recent update.

But not sure.

cannot move files to thrash

Hello, every time I want to move a file to thrash I get this message.

<code>
cannot move file to thrash, do you want to delete it immediately?

The file name file_name.pdf cannot be moved to thrash.
cancel, skip, delete.

</code>

I have plenty space on disk. I am using Mint 17.2.

Firefox slowing down DNS Look up

In recent weeks I am experiencing Firefox to be very slow looking up URL's whereas Chrome is just fine. I am wondering if any one else is experiencing the same thing. I am using 44.02. On Mint 17.2

Re: Files not copying to external drive

I repartitioned my SD card to NTFS and managed to solve the problem. Now i have to figure out a way to do it for my external drive without loosing data. If there is an equivalent "convert" command in Linux.?

Thank you to all for your input.

Re: Files not copying to external drive

Yes they are FAT 32. I know the total capacity of my SD drive is 16 gigs. My external disk drive has 300 gigs to spare. The file size I am trying to back up is 8.6 gigs. How do I check the size limit?
