windows look a like file display!


I have just mounted my windows drives in debian woody!

And when i go to my mp3 folder i can really find the songs i wan't because of the way the names are shown.

How do i display a list like in windows without details but wiht the complete names ?

Depends on what you are using to view the files. Are you using Konqueror or uhhh...the Gnome one(I forget what its called Nautilus I think)?

i'm using the console because the front end of mplayer dosen't work ( yet) !
when i mount the windows partition where the mp3 are like this:
mount -t auto .........
i get the windows view! But i can't execute the files because of the spaces in the file name!

Put a \ before the space. Example:

to access to a folder called My Shared folder
you type:
cd My\ Shared\ Folder/

but if you just press tab on a command line it will add the additional characters for you and complete the rest of the file name anyway...
