How To Speed Up The Nautilus File Browser

Filed under

I ran across a few settings the other day that can help speed up your Nautilus file browser within gnome. This would work for those of you on older machines, of even those that want to get a little more out of your newer machines.

How To Install Audio Preview For Nautilus

My post yesterday on how to speed up the nautilus file manager mentioned turning off the audio preview feature. Based on a few comments I realize that I have never mentioned how to turn this feature on in the first place.

    Kai Uwe has been working on some experimental hacks to resemble Windows 8, although Microsoft's default interface has changed with Windows 10. He's calling this work "U-Bahn" (the German equivalent of a Metro subsystem system) in reference to Microsoft at the time calling it Metro. This was just some brief hacking and he's not planning to see this U-Bahn project through to the end.
  • Pursuing Awesomeness
    While applets can be installed through “Get Hot New Stuff” and distribution repositories, there’s also the classic .plasmoid file. A feature suggested by one of my colleagues – fresh KDE Plasma user – was to drag .plasmoid files onto the desktop or panel and have them installed. After Marco Martin implemented the neccessary KPackage plumbing this is now possible.
