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.
yeah konqueror is a good option tioes. but its behavior is not good i couldnt set my home folder as its home page option and whenever it starts, it starts as a huge window and i have to size it and stuff...
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.
