It seems that the file and desktop manager in mint 17 has been changed to Caja and is not compatible with Docky bookmarks helper.

"Changes to the bookmarks on the dock are synced to Nautilus' bookmarks".

It is a pain not to have my bookmarks on the dock is it possible to change the file/desktop manager back to Nautilus?

If you create a bookmark in Caja, which of these 2 files does it show up in
Code: [Select]
gedit ~/.gtk-bookmarks
or
Code: [Select]
gedit ~/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks

I'm pretty sure nautilus now saves it's bookmarks in ~/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks .. so try making that a symlink to ~/.gtk-bookmarks

Try this:
Code: [Select]
mv -v ~/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks ~/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks-original
then
Code: [Select]
ln -sv ~/.gtk-bookmarks ~/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks
You may then either need to restart docky, or log off/on.



To undo:
Code: [Select]
rm -v ~/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks
then
Code: [Select]
mv -v ~/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks-original ~/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks
then if necessary, log off/on.

There is no change to the operation of the bookmarks........  the folders are shown on the dock but when clicked nothing happens. i.e. the folder dose not open.

OK, I'm going to guess that docky attempts to run nautilus when the bookmark is clicked.

We can create a script called nautilus that launches caya instead.

But first I want to check that there isn't one there already.

What happens if you run:
Code: [Select]
nautilus
and what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
ls -al /usr/bin/nautilus

userone@Office2 ~ $ nautilus
The program 'nautilus' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
sudo apt-get install nautilus
userone@Office2 ~ $ ls -al /usr/bin/nautilus
ls: cannot access /usr/bin/nautilus: No such file or directory
userone@Office2 ~ $

OK, let's try this:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /usr/bin/nautilus
and make it read:-
Code: [Select]
    #!/bin/bash
    exec caja $3
    exit 0
SAVE the file and exit gedit .. now run:
Code: [Select]
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/nautilus
now what happens if you run:
Code: [Select]
nautilus
if caja starts .. now try the docky bookmarks.

Close Docky

Open Caja

Right-click any FOLDER

Select "Open with > Other Application..."

Select Caja

Make sure "Remember this application" (or whatever dialog Caja uses to remember file types) is checked

Click Open

Restart Docky

You're welcome ...

You can probably undo the other things we did if you want, but it won't hurt to leave them either.
