Happy Mother’s Day

I stole this from Michele’s facebook page:

Happy Mommy’s Day to ALL the mommies out there-the women who choose to love children unconditionally, whether they grew in your stomach or someone else’s. ♥

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms–the ones Michele mentioned, and the grandmas, the aunts, the caregivers–those who care, and an extra-special dose of love to Michele, my grandmother Sonya, and my almost-mother-in-law Nola. :)

In honor of Mother’s Day, I’ve changed the banner image, and I’d like to try doing this with different holidays, too.  If there’s a holiday I miss, or if you’d like to suggest a banner image for a certain holiday/celebration, contact me.

Disabling the GNOME Nautilus navigation history

Previously I wrote about how to disable your GNOME Recent Documents menu. This post covers a second GNOME history menu: That which is contained at the bottom of your ‘Go’ menu.

The part you see in the image, below the “Clear History” is the navigation history. It contains a list of recently accessed folders, removable devices, and network shares. The one thing to mention about this menu is that it’s session-based. It isn’t written to the hard drive, and when you log off it’s erased. However, if making sure this menu isn’t available at all is your concern, then read on.

You need to make changes to the file /usr/share/nautilus/ui/nautilus-navigation-window-ui.xml — make a backup of it just in case you break something! So now open the file in an editor or run the following:

sudo gedit /usr/share/nautilus/ui/nautilus-navigation-window-ui.xml

Scroll down to around line 47 and you should see the following:

Delete those three lines. Log out and then back in to see your changes. This will make the change effective for all users.

Questions, comments, and feedback on this are welcome and appreciated!
