View hidden files in Ubuntu 11.04


Just a quick query. Is there a way to make the system display hidden files in the home folder when you open it? I know you can select "Show Hidden Files" in the view menu but having to do this every time you want to see or access hidden files and folders is annoying!

I am not using Ubuntu but I think you should be able to open Nautilus => Edit => Preferences => Views
