Gnome functionality questions


Hi,

I'm a KDE user, but every once in a while I like to try working in Gnome, which keeps getting better and better and looks very nice. I've got a few questions about some KDE functionality that I'm having a hard time doing without. I'd like to know if there is a way to do any of these things in Gnome itself. I'm using Dropline 2.16 on Slack 11.0.

1. Clipboard: in KDE there is a Klipper applet that allows me to view and select the last dozen or so of my cuts, copies and deletes. This works across windows/programs. Is there something like this in Gnome?

2. Terminal scrollbars: is there a way to display scrollbars in gnome-terminal?

3. fish: is there an easy way to browse remote directories in the file manager like fish in Konqueror?

Thanks for any advice.

Brian

We don't have a clipboard manager that we include with DLG, but there are a few extra options available... E.g;

http://gcm.sourceforge.net/

There is an option in the preferences under "scrolling", where you can enable the scrollbars.

There are a few ways to do this. Under the "places" menu option, on the GNOME toolbar, there is an option to "Connect to server". You can use SFTP, FTP, Webdav, SMB, and more.

Alternately, you can bring this up under Nautilus in the "file" menu.

Assuming that these shares are listed on your network, you can also browse them with the "Network Servers" option in the "Places" menu.

Since Nautilus uses URIs for everything, you can pass them off in the location bar. E.g. Hit CTL+L (or select "open location" from the file menu). You can pass off something like sftp://server.com, smb://sambaserver, dav://location, etc. It plugs into gnome-vfs to handle the communication.

Thanks, zborgerd. This was very helpful.

1. I'd seen that, but it looked so old I wasn't sure if it was still the way to do it. I'll give it a try.
2. Ahh, thank you. I was thrown off by the terminolgy (Profile vs. preferences).
3. Ahh, thank you again. Choosing ssh protocol gets me what I want.

Cheers,
Brian
