Dummy question about Nautilius ???


i searched everywhere in the gnome but i couldnt find it. when i open nautilius and get into a folder it always opens another window. for every folder it opens another new window. i want it to open the folders in the same window. using gnome 2.6 and Mand. 10.1.

I've read that is is possible to change this behavior, but I have had no luck finding the settings, and like you, I'm using Mandrake. I have taken to using Konqueror instead.

Sorry for no help, but at least I know I'm not the only one!

Click the Edit menu > Preferences and it's on the second tab. It's right there in GNOME 2.8, blindingly obvious.

Gnome 2.6.2, Nautilus 2.6.3 here. Under my behavior tab I only have single-click/double-click, 3 options on executing text files, and how to handle trash.

Ahh, haven't used GNOME 2.6 but I use Nautilus 2.8 as my file manager for fluxbox - well it's 2.10 now but I know the option was there for 2.8.

You may have to fire up regedit - er, gconf-edit (or whatever) and find the, uh, key under applications>nautilus>preferences or something like. In 2.6 I think they were trying to force people to use nautilus their way before the entire planet called them stupid. I'm not sure; not in Knome now. I'm playing with the new blackbox at the moment. (My first love, but it's been awhile - least it hasn't turned into a rube goldberg eyecandy disaster like flux has.) May be able to just invoke it as 'nautilus --browser' - I dunno.

Settings > Load View Profile... > File Management

The way to make it default is to change the properties of the launch command to 'konqueror --profile filemanagement'.

Good information from the rest though. Maybe trying those can fix Nautilus. I think I'll try them myself.
