Hi I have openSUSE 11.3 Gnome installed. The nautilus address bar shows the “Button Bar” and if I press Ctrl+L it swaps to the “Text Location Bar”. The Text Location bar is where you see the full path to the directory that you’re viewing.
But I can’t set the default addressing to the Text Location Bar. The help file says to do this:
To always use the text location bar, click on the toggle button at the left of the location bar.
Unfortunately there is no working “toggle button” in my Nautilus.
Here’s a screenshot showing what I see.
There is a button there I suppose, but when I click it nothing happens.
What else should I do to get the text location bar (i.e. the full path) to be the default view in the address bar?
It’s just tempory, enough for cut and paste and manual entry of a uri … maybe something in gconf to change the default … not sure!
That’s what I said in the intro post. The trouble is that the “text location bar” won’t stick. If I click another folder in the browser, Nautilus reverts immediately to the “button bar”.
Sorry I did not read your original post more carefully …
Toggle “text” location ON
gconftool-2 --type=Boolean --set /apps/nautilus/preferences/always_use_location_entry true
Toggle “text” location OFF
gconftool-2 --type=Boolean --set /apps/nautilus/preferences/always_use_location_entry false
Let’s hope the gnome devs put a push-button toggle back.
