lost the tools bar on Nautilus
Hi !

Somehow Nautilus lost the tools bar (the one that sits below menu bar (File Edit View Go...) and on top of the Location bar (the one that have back/forward/refresh/search buttons and the current path).

I try to install Thunar to see if I can use another program to do file management but for my surprise thunar does not display that bar too ! (well, it uses the same libraries that nautilus so it is not a big surpise after all)

I try to find some setting on System/Preferences/File Management and File Manager, but no luck...

Someone knows what I can do to have that bar back ?

I am using Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic koala, and Gnome 2.28.4.

Try selecting "View" on the menu bar and checking the "Main Toolbar" checkbox.

Cheers, Lou

There is no such option in View menu. There are only "Side Pane (F9); Location Bar; Status Bar" !

PS: good to known the name the name of tmissing bar is "Main Toolbar". Even that I didn't known...

Pretty weird that you're missing menu items. One more thing you might try. Select Edit->Preferences->Behavior. Under the Behavior group is a check box with a label which is dependent on the nautilus version ("Open each folder in its own window" or "Always open in Browser window"). Try each possibility to see if your View menu items return. You will likely have to close and re-open nautilus after each change.

Curious, Lou

Sorry to bump this stale thread, but the answer is most likely "press F11". I searched for this today and this thread was exactly my question with no answer. I'm using Gnome-Fallback and this answer may still be relevant to some users.
