The configuration option did not work on my 32-bit Debian Testing laptop with GNOME3 in it (upgraded recently). The version of Nautilus I have given by the COLUMNS=100 dpkg --list nautilus
command from my non-root user account on the 32-bit Linux Debian Linux desktop machine is:
bg@brentg : COLUMNS=100 dpkg --list nautilus
|/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)

ii nautilus 3.0.2-4 file manager and graphical shell for GNOME
I found the setting I think is involved from further sleuthing while I was waiting for a response to this thread and found something somewhat related at http://superuser.com/questions/28113...th-in-nautilus
which I interpreted to mean the following:
1. Set the setting:
gconftool-2 --type=Boolean --set /apps/nautilus/preferences/always_use_location_entry true
2. Verify the setting was properly set:
gconftool-2 --get /apps/nautilus/preferences/always_use_location_entry true
But after having done the above, opening up Nautilus shows that the location bar is still not there.
What is odd is that, on my 64-bit Linux machine which is also running Debian Linux with the exact same version of Nautilus, the above seems to not have any effect at all on the visibility of the Location bar. Meaning, the Location bar is always there regardless of the setting of the /apps/nautilus/preferences/always_use_location_entry key.
Perhaps I have the wrong gconf key?
