Nautilus Tree Panel.

Filed Under ( by Laudeci Oliveira on 18-08-2011

I am testing Ubuntu 11.10 and one thing that I didn’t like is the left panel showing Places instead of tree.

Now, if you are like me and want to navigate using a tree panel, run the following command in the terminal.

gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.window-state side-pane-view "tree"

If you want to change it using a graphical application, install  dconf-tools, start dconf-editor and

navigate to org.gnome.nautilus.window-state,  change the value of side-pane-view to “tree”.

Now your Nautilus will look like this:

PS.: Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot still in Alpha3, not recommended to be used in a production environment.

  1. Or just go into view->sidebar and select tree

  2. Edit -> Preferences -> Default view? Isn’t that simpler?

  3. Sure it is. ;)

  4. for the record why would nautilus need the search button? normally we would just type the location and press enter :D and isn’t more natural for the back and forward button to stay infront of the location like most browser do that :)

  5. I agree with that.

  6. I don’t like it much either…
