    Default Why is the hidden files showing automatically in Nautilus?

    The Nautilus always shows the hidden files when I open it every time, no matter how I disable it...





    Can I edit the title?

    Hi
    So ctrl+h doesn't work, or have you set the Nautilus preferences
    'Views' check box 'Show hidden and backup files'?

    I can disable them by Ctrl+H or the check box, but it will show up after I re-open the Nautilus.

    Hi
    Ok, create a test user and login, does the issue duplicate?

    It is in another situation, it hides the hidden files every time I open Nautilus, although I have enable it.
    How can I make the Nautilus of my account does that?

    Hi
    So you mean as a different user it works as expected, showing hidden when requested and remaining hidden when requested?

    If you run the following as your user;
    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.preferences show-hidden-files false
    press alt+F2 then r and press enter to restart the shell, does this help?

    Hi
    Try the following instead;
    Code:
    gsettings set org.gtk.Settings.FileChooser show-hidden false
