Ubuntu: Integration of a tag based file system approach in Gnome and Nautilus



Question:

I am using Gnome 3.8 and Nautilus and I am quite satisfied in principle. Yet I dislike the traditional hierarchical file system approach using paths. It may be me but I often cannot find the files I am looking for in a short period of time. Thus I would like to transition to a tag based file system.

Now I am curious. Are there any tag based approaches, programs that do integrate neatly into Nautilus and Gnome?

With which one did you have good experiences?


Solution:1

I've found tmsu to be the best, it can be found here:

http://tmsu.org/

It doesn't integrate into Nautilus as such but as it uses a FUSE filesystem, it can be browsed from any file manager or even on the commandline.


Solution:2

As far as I know, there is a nice file system level solution to your need called NHFS or nonhierarchical file system. Also available a FUSE based mountable file system called TMSU that may satisfy you. Since these tow are solving your problem in a file system level, they are fully compatible to Gnome and Nautilus.


Solution:3

Have a look at Tagsistant It's also a file system solution


Solution:4

Also if you are looking for a program such as a collection manager, and not a file system; best open source working solution in Ubuntu I can introduce is tagspaces. It seats independently besides nautilus, no integration at the moment.


Solution:5

for a cross platform file tagging solution I can recommend TagSpaces
