A recent problem has appeared with the Nautilus file manager on a Jetson 4GB running an updated (apt-get upgrade during october 2021) generic NVIDIA Jetpack Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. I am deploying this to an internal customer and they do not know how to use any CLI tools.
Symptom: Nautilus does not display new filenames or icons on a removable USB drive. Folders do appear. Plain, undecorated “ls” on the terminal shows the files. Most of these files are .png snapshots from an image stream.
Attempted solutions: A post on stack exchange in 2016 describes a similar problem. I have tried refresh(Ctrl+R), switching views, and turning off file previews. I have not tried to check the filesystem on the USB drive since physical and remote access are restricted.
I’m posting this here because I have only seen this problem on the Jetson platform. My other bare metal and VM copies of Ubuntu do not exhibit this problem. That may be because of user behavior differences. Note that the post in SE remains unresolved.
