How can I convert MATE-Desktop to display bytes correctly (as multiples of 1024)?


I just installed MATE-Desktop in Ubuntu Precise, and like it, but file sizes are displayed in decimal bytes, which is wrong and evil. Is it possible to display file sizes correctly, i. e. as multiples of 1024? I know it can be done in KDE, so it should be possible.

You'd have to re-write the source code to the file manager. I'm surprised, because Nautilus doesn't do that. You could try posting a suggestion at the Mate forum.
