Question about Nautilus and GNOME-terminal


When using Nautilus, how do I change the Location Bar from boxes that I click on to bring me to folders, to one where I an just type in the address? Also, in gnome-terminal, how do I change it to say "username@hostname:~$"? Right now it says "bash-3.00$". I am using GNOME 2.12.0 and can not figure these things out. Thanks for any help.

Nautilus problem: View -> Location Bar
or perhaps View -> Reset View to Defaults................. I think this is what you mean anyway


gnome-terminal problem:

type in the following: hostname -v <the hostname that you want> ..... it should automatically put the username in front of it then ( you have to be root to do this)

Unfortunatly, neither of those worked... =[

In Nautilus, the Location bar is already checked...

In gnome-terminal, i ran that command it it still says "bash-3.00$".

To restore the address bar for the current running nautilus window:

CTRL+L

To make it permanent:

Open Applications->System Tools -> Configuration Editor (gconf-editor)
find the entry
"/apps/nautilus/preferences/always_use_location_entry"
and click the checkbox

--------

Your bash prompt name is ussually stored in /etc/profile in the form of a PS1 variable...
