Nautilus went through major changes since Lucid Lynx, so let's see what remains of it:
- Nautilus was renamed to "Files"
- Compact View --> removed
- File or folder selection by simply typing --> still exists
- New Document > Empty Document --> still exists
- Menu bar --> removed.
- Menu button --> added. It's a gear wheel icon in the top right corner
- ‘Go’ menu --> removed
- Enter Location... --> added
- F3 split screen --> removed (this is most annoying!)
- Tabs --> still exists.
- ‘tree’ view --> not default for List view, but you can set it in Preferences
- Bookmark menu --> still exists. Only shown if there are items in it.
- Locations' default bookmarks --> added. Cannot be removed and icon cannot be changed, but name and location can be edited.
- Backspace shortcut to return to parent folder --> still exists.
- Scripts folder was moved from /home/user/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts to /home/user/.local/share/nautilus/scripts
- Right clicking to reach Scripts menu only works when you click on a file or folder.
- Otherwise works as usual.
- A graphical user interface to manage nautilus scripts now exists.
Nemo is an alternative to "Files" (Nautilus).
- can be installed from Software Center ("Files (nemo)")
- works just like the good old Nautilus, with F3 dual pane and every other feature.
- works just like Nautilus scripts.
- scripts folder is /home/user/.gnome2/nemo-scripts
To set Nemo to be the default file manager, you have to follow these steps:
- To make Nemo the default file manager run in terminal:
xdg-mime default nemo.desktop inode/directory application/x-gnome-saved-search
- To make Nemo handle the desktop run in terminal:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background show-desktop-icons false gsettings set org.nemo.desktop show-desktop-icons true
- (Optionally) To remove desktop shortcuts created by Nemo run in terminal:
gsettings set org.nemo.desktop home-icon-visible false; gsettings set org.nemo.desktop trash-icon-visible false; gsettings set org.nemo.desktop computer-icon-visible false; gsettings set org.nemo.desktop volumes-visible false
