Fedora 18 Gnome 3 No delete option in Nautilus
 
The file manager in F18 no longer has an option menu. To set some options, one must install Nautilus Actions, which shows up oddly enough under "Other" in the Application Menu. I have yet to figure out how to add "Delete" to the file manager's context menu.

I don't know what prompted changing a simple, and useful function into a frustrating procedure, but I would surely like to get around it. If anyone has a suggestion, please let me know.

A lot of people share your observation. I have the Euro symbol missing from my keyboard. It was present with Gnome in Fedora 17. If I run KDE, it is present.

I am really disappointed in Gnome3. Fedora 17 Gnome was a letdown from Fedora 16, and Fedora 17, instead of improving, was weakened further.

I have switched to cinnamon. If you want to try cinnamon, it is a one liner to install it.

sudo yum install @cinnamon -y

I added a "Delete" option for when I right-click on a file or directory. Just right-click on the "Files" icon up on the panel, then Preferences > Behavior > "Include a Delete command that bypasses Trash."

I may yet do just that. Thank you for the tip, and the command.

Ahh! You are the MAN! I would never have thought to do that in a million years. I don't know what possessed the developers to move this function out of the application gui. It couldn't be more counter intuitive.

Thanks for your assistance.

Somewhat related, one thing that I don't like in Nautilus 3.6.3 in Fedora 18, no option to create a new, empty text file. Seems like something you normally see in any file manager.

I found these two pages:

http://askubuntu.com/questions/20829...n-nautilus-3-6

http://worldofgnome.org/how-to-creat...ment-in-files/

Okay, creating an empty text file in ~/Templates does work, but it would be quicker to be able to simply right-click within a directory and click on a "Create New File" option or something like that. Anyone know of a way to create something like that?

Ah. I guess after you create the empty text file in ~/Templates, then you have a "New Document" right-click option in other directories.
