My Own Cloud, My Own Gnome Files!

Recently a discussion in Gnome Mailing Lists took place about sync Files with OwnCloud.

As I have set up lots of OwnCloud instances for companies that I work for, the answer […]


Gnome Files 3.6 (3.5.92) Screencasting

Gnome Files 3.6 is far from completed and is more like an experimental version of what is coming next, in 3.8. Overall, I think it is an improvement over 3.4 but this has to do in what way you’re using it. Some things are done faster in new Files and some things are done slower. For […]


Add some sushi to your desktop!

Sushi is a handy file previewer that has been around since 3.2, but some of you may never heard of.

Hash Checker is […]


A quick revisit on Files

Files (aka Nautilus) received major changes in Gnome 3.6.  While overall its re-fresh look is getting good critics, there are some discussions about the drop of features like Compact View and Extra Pane. Jon McCann explains in 7 points in his blog the goals of Files 3.6.   


Menus for everyone’s taste!

One of the reasons that Ubuntu denied Gnome3 and developed its own desktop environment was a disagreement with Gnome developers about the Global Menus. Canonical invested a lot in Mac style Menus when Gnome build the Application Menus. Two years later the state of these two desktops menus remind a McDonald catalog with plenty ..unhealthy options.
