Ubuntu 10.04 Issues (nautilus/terminal/gnome/dolphin)


Hi,

I have four newbie questions for the ubuntu gurus:

I installed a few services using the dolphin tools menu (configure dolphin) but they're not showing up on right-click, how can i enable them. Here's my setup:

-Ubuntu Lucid GNOME
-Dolphin 1.4
-All dolphin dependencies and issues resolved (i think) by using:

Code:
sudo apt-get build-dep dolphin
sudo apt-get install dolphin
My second problem is file search, the feature that comes with nautilus is way too slow, and catfish is lacking so many feature, I'm kind of a sucker for eye-candy, and when i tried beagle it stuck out like a sore thumb! Is there a good looking, well-developed file-search feature for the gnome desktop?

My third question is regarding the update in Lucid, it keeps telling me the following when i run: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

Code:
The following packages have been kept back:
  linux-generic linux-headers-generic linux-image-generic
Is there a new kernel that it's not allowing me to use? if so, how do i get past this message?

My last issue is with nautilus, I have many large directories with tons of subdirectories (especially my music folders), and nautilus can only view them as icons, list or columns, is there a way to install a script or plugin for nautilus to make it faster and/or include some form of miller columns like in dolphin (I believe it's the best way to view large folders).

Thanks in advance

sudo find [where] -iname "[what]"

If too many results:
sudo find [where] -iname "[what]" | less

no gui?

Thanks for the quick response Mr. Alex, is there no good GUI method for file search? if not, how do i use this search command to find within subfolders? and to open a certain search result directly?

thanks again.

You might wanna try gnome-commander.

$ sudo apt-get install gnome-commander

In Gnome-commander hit F9 and that's a GUI for search.

Thanks again mr. alex, i've installed it, and running it right now, it has a good system integration and search function, one question about it though, how do i tell a folder to open in the next column instead of the same one, i found nothing in the settings.

Right-click on the folder, Open with "Open folder". It will open the dir in Nautilus. Is this OK?

actually what i meant is that, since you have two columns in commander, i want to have the parent directory on one of them and open subdirectories in the other, is that possible?

But Gnome-commander is not a file search tool. Try tracker-search-tool.
