Chapter 8. Using the Filesystem in GNOME and Nautilus

In This Chapter

  • Sailing the filesystem with Nautilus

  • Working with files in Nautilus

  • Using CDs and other removable media

There is no need to do any housework at all. After the first four years, the dirt doesn’t get any worse.

Quentin Crisp

In Chapter 5, we took a look at GNOME and how to use the desktop, but one skill was deliberately skipped: handling files. Chapter 7 addresses how to work with the filesystem on the command line and where to find things. This chapter focuses on pointing and clicking your way through your directories and file manipulation with ease.
