I am on F14. exo-open or xdg-open keeps opening directories or unknown
mime types with evince. Earlier the application associated with
application/x-directory was empty; setting it with "xdg-mime default
..." doesn't help in anyway.
$ xdg-mime query default application/x-directory
Can anyone suggest what is wrong?
Open source is the future. It sets us free.
In Scientific Linux 6, Terminal mashes certain letters together.
On investigation, I found that Terminal's RPM had no dependencies.
I reported this as a bug to Xfce, but they declined it as it is an RPM
problem and not theirs.
Over on the bug, I added a graphic to show the overlap problem:
And, if you install nautilus-open-terminal, one of its
dependencies solves the Terminal overlap problem.
I have documented nautilus-open-terminal's dependencies
over on the bug report as well.
Would whoever maintains the SL 6 RPM for Terminal
please take a look over at the dug and add the proper
dependencies into the RPM?
How do I remove permanently the equal of:
rhgb quiet from the inall.
Could find nothing in /etc/grub2/

It works for me with Thunar. Maybe you broke your configuration.
[raphael@lokalhorst /]$ xdg-mime query default application/x-director
[raphael@lokalhorst /]$ cd
[raphael@lokalhorst ~]$ xdg-open .
method return sender=:1.10 -> dest=:1.126 reply_serial=2
[raphael@lokalhorst ~]$ cat /etc/fedora-release
Fedora release 14 (Laughlin)
[raphael@lokalhorst ~]$ rpm -q Thunar

I'm doing some more testing of the XFCE 4.8 packages in EPEL 6 and have just
noticed that I don't have any cursor in the terminal window. If the cursor is
over a letter, it gets highlighted (green in my case) but is otherwise
invisible. How can I get the block cursor back?

Apparently SL6 and FC15 do not automatically support floppy
drives anymore. (I had to put a "modprobe floppy" in my rc.local
to get my /dev/fd0 back.)
Problem, my floppy disk still does not show up on my desktop
even with the modprobe in the rc.local. How do I get my
floppy disk to show up on my desktop again when I insert a disk?
Just wondering if any of y'all run Dropbox with XFCE, and if so, how
do you do it? I've done some searching and came up with varying
answers and techiques. Do I *have* to install Nautilus?
As you might know thumbnails in Thunar are generated with tumbler. The
tumbler package in Fedora however cannot include the tumbler-ffmpeg
plugin. By popular demand I now rolled an add-on package called
If you are a packager in RPMFusion, please review the package at
Fedora's Xfce users will appreciate your help.
