Oneiric 11.10 – No detail view on the file manager Nautilus? Use Thunar.
Use Alt + F2 and type in:
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.
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 :-)
