NAME
nautilus - the GNOME File Manager SYNOPSIS
nautilus [--browser] [--check] [--load-session=file] [--no-default-window] [--no-desktop] [--quit] [location] [gnome-std-options] DESCRIPTION
The GNOME File Manager is the primary graphical interface to the file system. It provides access to, and manipulation of, files and folders on both local and remote filesystems by giving a virtual view of them. The File Manager supports multiple view types to allow you to view files and folders as an arrangement of icons, as a detailed list, or as a number of data-specific views which allow embedded viewing of text, images and other multi-media. Nautilus provides the desktop backdrop and its associated icons for launching applications, access to folders, the trash and removeable media (such as CD-ROMs and zip disks). The trash container is a special view of objects that have been removed from their original loca- tions but not yet permanently deleted from the system. Emptying the trash will delete these objects permanently. The side pane of the main window provides additional information about the folder in the current view as well as allowing the user to add any arbitrary notes; for example, to describe the folder or its contents. A tree view of the filesystem is also available on the side bar, which can be used to switch between the location of the main view and a history view to show the recently viewed locations. OPTIONS
The following options are supported: --browser Open a browser window. -c, --check Perform a quick set of self-check tests. -l, --load-session=file Load a saved session from the specified file. Implies --no-default-window. -n, --no-default-window Only create windows for explicitly specified locations. --no-desktop Do not manage the desktop backdrop. -q, --quit Quit a currently running Nautilus application. gnome-std-options Standard options available for use with most GNOME applications. See gnome-std-options(5) for more infor- mation. OPERANDS
