some must have solved issues.

Asked by ajmal_82 on 2008-01-23

The very basic feature
1)Inside trash...."Restore files" to its original location.
2)Resize image/convert image to different format inside photo viewer
whatever is gnome's photo manager .
3)Quick launch menu....or something like rocket dock,avant window manager i know
but should be officially supported.
4)Better way to display drive information like details about filesystem,drive space and free space.if possible include a drive meter.
5)lastly better context menu's which provides easier to navigate to frequently used command or operations like open command prompt here etc.

1) Known bug 14412 https://bugs.launchpad.net/nautilus/+bug/14412
2) is already done - gThumb image viewer has a resize option in the Tools menu
3) If you want avant, install it
4) is done already. Applications --> Accessores --> Disk Usage Analyser, and if you go to Places --> Computer you can right click the filesystem, properties and get a pie chart

i want to see information without using any application and its included inside file explorer like vista does.

Alan Pope ㋛ (popey) said : #4

Places --> Computer takes you to Nautilus which _is_ the file browser.

Pope thanks for the info.. I misunderstood his question..;-)

Just a couple additions.

3) if you are asking for a dock by default I'm not sure that will happen (you can always install) but there is a quick launch. You can add anything app launcher to the panel. Just drag it from the menu to the panel. Firefox is there by default and you can add whatever else you want -- including frequently used commands.

5) I assume by "open command prompt here" you want the ability to open a terminal in a directory other than /home. For example, if you are browsing in /etc to open a terminal in that directory. If that's what you mean, I don't think it will happen. Terminal users would not normally be browsing in a GUI and then want to open a terminal. If they did, cd is a simple enough command. If you mean something else please clarify.

The question my previous post solves is #5 "Open Command Prompt Here".

Can you help with this problem?
