The best is yet to come…

Oneiric 11.10 – No detail view on the file manager Nautilus? Use Thunar.

Use Alt + F2 and type in:

gksu nautilus

Then you get to use the adult version and use can select  a view “compact” and add extra columns etc..

But… it does not look as if these setting are saved, which is annoying.


Plan B

Use Thunar, install via the software Centre and it will ask if you want a launcher created.

Also install the thunar-archive-plugin (an Archive plugin for Thunar file manager).

Or PCManFM which is very nice and simple, and no bloody breadcrumbs!

Ooh it also has a root mode built-in nice :-)
