    Re: Gnome panel and "opening" anomaly

    Gnome Panel users please tell if you know what is this anomaly?

    This panel interface is preferred by lot of people if i gave a choice which one you want: Unity or Gnome Panel and 75% picked panel that has been customized all in one by me (places and apps, window list, indicators and clock)

    Re: Gnome panel and "opening" anomaly

    I filed a bug on this over a year ago so the odds of getting 'fixed' are nil

    What you can do is open any affected apps .desktop & either remove this line-
    StartupNotify=true
    or edit to
    StartupNotify=false

    So for nautilus, don't know which one the classic sessions so both -
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /usr/share/applications/nautilus.desktop
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /usr/share/applications/nautilus-home.desktop

    Thank you so much, first line that helped already.

    Ubuntu devs here is solution: just use default StartupNotify=false for panel and it is fixed simple as that.

    Re: Gnome panel and "opening" anomaly

    I get something a tad bit different, but just as annoying.

    When I open nautilus, my cursor becomes a "spinning wheel" and there's a "Staring Folder" icon at the bottom panel. This stays on for several seconds.

    All the while, I can navigate or anything else in nautilus, but question what is causing this.

    I should and may still open another thread, but was wondering if this is related to the topic at hand. I changed the "StartupNotify=false", but to no difference.

    That fixed it for me.

    Same happens to me
    I've tried changing Nautilus config files line startupnotify from true to false, but no luck

    I also think this isn't a Nautilus problem, because it also happens with Thunar

    I'm on Ubuntu Desktop 12.04 64 bit Gnome Classic no effects

    Before we wish or believe in something, we must know that that something exists and is real

    wow,

    nice

    no more spinning wheel for 20 seconds when you start up nautilus, by the way I am running Ubuntu 13.04 x64 Gnome, and this solved it for me.

    It took me a while to figure this out. I missed the step about "affected apps", and just applied the 'false' to both the aforementioned nautilus files. Realizing that my "spinning wheel" is only involved using multiple gedit edits, I then applied 'false' to gedit.desktop. It now works as expected.

    Re: Gnome panel and "opening" anomaly

    Just to note -
    starting in 13.04 users should no longer use sudo gedit, sudo nano or gksudo gedit would be better.
    Overall they are moving away from gksu(do) & it's no longer default installed

    Here I've switched over to enabling pkexec for both gedit & nautilus but that has not been done offically
