Question Sigh... How to make Nautilus Functional in Fedora 18?


I upgraded from Fedora 17 to Fedora 18 last night and the version of nautilus with F18 cannot be split into 2 explorer panes using the F3 button and it doesn't appear that it can run outside of a maximized state.

Considering 90% of my time on this machine is spent copying files, if I can't go into dual pane mode and I cannot open to windows side by side it pretty much prevents this machine from being even moderately useful.

Does anyone know some tricks to get back the F3 dual pane mode or even how to un-maximize Nautilus so I can at least open 2 of them side by side to copy files?

nemo is a fork of the old nautilus which comes with F18. Install it and enjoy.

Install a more lightweight file manager like "Thunar".

Switch to an "old-style" file manager, like gnome-commander?

Thanks, didn't know that Nemo was there -- nice solution for those of us who want/need the extra pane.

No kidding. I finally got a chance to install and use Nemo and holy cow it is fantastic! F3 Dual Panes are back, it has full Nautilus scripts support, and it just looks and feels so much better than the absolutely terrible full-screen version of nautilus that comes with F18.

Thanks for that suggestion!
