    File Manager gone, EEE PC


    I was really struggling to open file manager today. thinking i can't remember which tab it is under. well it's not in my favourites, it's not in internet, not in play, settings or learn. Must be in work you might think. well it's not there either. I can't get into file manager any way.

    Now I'm not just a bit of a noob when it comes to linux, i'm an until recently virgin, but i know when something is up. it used to be in work. now it's gone. and i cant open my documents in any way. anyone gimme a hand?

    You could help us, help you, by letting us know which Linux distribution (the version of Linux) you are running. Also let us know which desktop you are using.

    You have an EeePC right? Do the following that i found on EeePC forums.
    Don't be afraid of the command line, they are clear instructions:

    start a terminal window (Ctrl+Alt+t). Type
    Code:
    sudo nano /opt/xandros/bin/eeepc-file-manager-helper.sh
    Give your password if it asks you to.Enter the following two lines.
    Code:
    #! /bin/sh
    /usr/bin/XandrosFileManager
    Ctrl+O to write the file out, followed by return to accept the filename
    Ctrl+X to exit. Type:
    Code:
    sudo chmod 755 /opt/xandros/bin/eeepc-file-manager-helper.sh
    exit
    Reboot the eee and filemanager should be back. Post again if you have any problems.

    It must be because of a totally wrong decision by Xandros (EeePC distribution maker),
    which released an update with this change that made everybody mad!!
