When I download a file with Chromium I have a small downloading icon in the bottom left corner of the browser; when it finishes to download there is an arrow, I click it and then I click "Show in the folder"; and then I get the error described. Normally it should open the "Downloads" folder. If xen...

When I download something from the Internet and I try to show it in the download folder I get the error in the image attached. How can I solve? :?
What are you doing to "try to show it"? Opening your file-browser and going to "Downloads", or something else?

Re: trash foider location

And each partition has its trash for each user, and note the ".Trash" -
/mount/point/.Trash-UUID

You could've found the trash with
sudo find / -iname "*trash*"

No, this is not on the desktop. It's internal to Claws-Mail.
Try this to find files with "dillo":

Code: Select all

grep -R dilllo $HOME 
(you might get some binary files, too, and error msgs from .wine if you have that)

If no luck, look for claw-mail files, and edit those:

Code: Select all

find $HOME -iname "*law*"

Re: editing "open with"

Right clicking on one of the icons on the right of the Claws-Mail message screen brings up the "open with" drop down box, and if I choose dillo %s it works just fine. The dillo browser opens and I see what I'm looking for. However, one time I mistyped and entered dilllo %s in the "open with" box. N...

Re: Correct file name rules please? (solved)

I have at times in the past, had files "disappear" in the Windows OS when apps would not open them, but the FileManager can obviously see them. Windows mostly runs thru GUIs and the parameters are terminated strings ("file name") including the spaces. Here's a glitch with spaces and thunar: $ touch...

Re: Correct file name rules please?

Can someone please advise what are the rules for naming files. I have experienced ongoing, historic problems with saved .dxf drawing files disappearing altogether, or being unable to open them due to "file permission" problems. Even though they are my own drawings. Permission problems or "disappear...

Re: Install old Nvidia driver 304

I only have 4.5.x kernels listed as options to install. Can I add 4.4x versions to 19? My free advice is: - How does your system run on the nouveau (generic) driver? I ran with the generic nouveau driver for a while and everything worked OK, including movies (w/xfce or fluxbox). If you're using Cin...

Sure, that works too. But if the user doesn't know which file to edit, using the GUI is easiest way. ;)
Well, I found the file ("find" and "grep" are your friends) but couldn't find it in the GUI.
