how do i make gnome open a directory in the same window rather than opening new windows each time.
make a launcher icon for (or open a terminal and run) "nautilus --no-desktop --browser"
edit: are there any icons at all on the desktop?
how do i extract an archive into a folder whose access is restricted? i dunno how to do that in console. i want to extract all the win32codecs in /usr/lib/win32.
open a terminal and type:
cd /usr/lib/win32 #note: /usr/local/lib/codecs is the modern equvalent
tar -xvvzf /path/to/codecs.tar.gz
tar -xvvjf /path/to/codecs.tar.bz2
see "man tar" & "man unzip"
