nautilus cd burner in 2.5

Hi all,

 Just curious - how do you use the nautilus CD burner in Nautilus 2.5?
I can't seem to find a Burn button or anything to initiate the
burning...  is this a bug, or am I just a dink?

Picon

Specify different icon for app in window list & titlebar?


Hi, this might seem a rather silly question, but I've got good reason for
it...

How can I change the icon (or specify one if the app comes with none) that
is displayed for a particular app in both:
  a) the left edge of the titlebar of the app's window under metacity and
     the "simple" window theme, and
  b) the window list applet in the bottom-edge gnome-panel
?

I've read through the Gnome user's guide, Admin's guide, searched the
mailing list archives, and poked all around in the GConf editor, and I'm
stumped.  Can anyone give me a hint?  Or if this isn't the proper list on
which to ask, could you redirect me to the proper list?

Ok, for those of you asking, "why on earth would you want to do that?",
here it is...  I'm setting up a new desktop box for my Mother.  She's
computer-clueless.  She probably hasn't even used a Windows PC for more
than a few hours in her life.  On the downside, she's got zero experience
to draw from.  On the upside, this means a Gnome desktop presents an equal
learning curve to a Windows desktop (and I insisted that if she wanted to
install Windows, she couldn't call me for help!).  I've managed to make it
clear that the "earth with modem in front of it" icon
(/usr/share/pixmaps/gnome-modem.png) means "that thingy which connects to
the Internet", in this case, GkDial.  I've added launchers for GkDial to
both the Applications/Internet menu and the top-edge gnome-panel,
associating gnome-modem.png with each.  So I get the "proper" icon in those
two places.  However, when I launch GkDial, I get that silly "corner folded
down blank sheet of paper" icon in the title bar and in the window list.

hmm I'm using Nautilus 2.5.4 - While in burn://  "Write to CD" appears
under the File menu, and if you're in the browser view  (nautilus --
browser), "Write contents to CD" appears on the Side Pane, and a "Write
to CD" icon appears on the toolbar.

All of these take you to the binary nautilus-cd-burner, so it'd be easy
enough to create a shortcut also.

These, of course, all depend on nautilus-cd-burner being installed.

HTH,
  Shaun.

Ah, I see it in the file menu now.  Guess I was indeed a dink and just
missed it earlier.  Thanks.  :)

There are ways to test procmail filters without spamming the list.  Try
feeding messages into your mail spool w/ sendmail, for example.  :)

"Run Application" dialog is slow!

When I click on "Run Application"  from the main menu, as soon as I hit 
a letter on the keyboard it freezes up as if it were searching for 
something.  Sometimes it takes as long as 20 seconds to allow me to 
finish typing..  I've notced that I don't have this problem on the 
server I just installed,  but the problem exists on my desktop and 
laptop installations.  Does anyone else here experience this?

Re: "Run Application" dialog is slow!

2.4 I presume? I had the same problem but never attached a debugger or
an strace to find out what was going on. My guess was some sort of
resolver issue or something.
