I have added the above from the repository to my Zen 11.11 install. During the script install, users are advised to log out and back in for this addon to be activated. I have done this, but it does not take effect. Does anyone have a workaround for this?
As far as I know, this hasn't worked in months, no idea why it's still in the repo, yet I can't get anybody to package an important wi-fi driver.
Just had a look at the script, didn't see anything that stuck out and I do have the dependencies installed.....I know it works elsewhere. Very possibly an update hard-coded in one of the Nautilus updates that broke functionality, I have found a bunch of these, apparently they spent the last half of last year on a disabling rampage, the stupidest by far was disabling the "as superuser" notification that appeared at the top of a nautilus window when you opened one as root user. Absolutely no reason to eliminate this useful feature. One idiot posted that it was "techspeak and ineffectual" so the dumbasses summarily disabled it in the next update.
I've been fighting this kind of stupid for months now, i'm not sure it's doing any good, the stupid seems to be winning.
Thanks ongoto. I had assumed it was broken. I installed EOG, but it's not really what I was looking for. I wanted to display music metadata in the file browser, as in good ole Windoz. So to work with music files, I'll have to use the other OS. Boo hoo!
Dragynn, I certainly understand your frustrations. I can't imagine a Linux file manager not being able to show music file metadata. I would think that would be elementary. I really appreciate what you are doing with Gnome 2. Hope it can be kept alive as long as possible. Siamer's work kept me in the PCLOS family, when I bailed on KDE 4. It has improved, but still is not as functional as Gnome IMHO. Hang in there, dude! And again thanks for keeping the best OS alive!
And ongoto, yes there are features in Windows that are sorely missed by the converts. But the plusses far outnumber the minuses!
I am glad you came along and pointed out a feature in nautilus that I wasn't aware of. I'm sure we'll get it back someday if we can put a bug between the right set of ears. The more converts we get, the more new things begin to happen. You are always welcome. We're open 24/7.
If you click on an audio or video file in nautilus, it opens in Totem. In the right panel at the top you can select properties in the dropdown. There's your metadata. EOG is the default viewer for images.
