View Full Version : [ubuntu] Nautilus "No applications found" for Media

July 23rd, 2009, 02:38 AM
Running Ubuntu Jaunty. I have tested this on various different systems, and it's true for all of them.

Some people prefer to use nautilus to manage their photos. They like to organize by directory structure. For this reason, "Photo Management" applications like f-spot are removed.

Now. With f-spot removed, when a USB digital camera is plugged in, we get a prompt:

It says "No applications found". But what about nautilus?? Just because we've removed our photo management applications from Ubuntu doesn't mean the "Open Folder" option should be removed also.

Checkout the "Media" tab in File Management Preferences (Open nautilus, Edit, Preferences):

Even here there are no options for "Photos".

What gives?

Identical problem in Lucid. Guess must reinstall F-Spot?

This is the problem though, I don't want to use F-spot, or Google Picasa, or anything like this. Just plain old nautilus, file directory structure.
