nautilus 3.6 default view [Solved]

Postby mohan43u » Sat Mar 02, 2013 9:01

I have upgraded to gnome 3.6 recently and found that there is no way to change nautilus default view. If I change the view through view buttons provided on top right corner, It only changes to that particular folder. If I switch to another folder or create a new tab, then it again goes to default view.

A little google reveals there are two commands I can use to change nautilus settings.

1. dconf-editor (GUI application which can provide options to set for a particular key)
2. gsettings (CLI application, don't have the ability to provide options)

1. changing nautilus default view through dconf-editor:
i) go to command prompt and execute 'dconf-editor', a GUI application will open.
ii) click org->gnome->nautilus->preferences, you will see 'default-folder-viewer' under 'Name' column.
iii) double-click 'icon-view' under 'Value' column, a drop-down list will appear, change it to 'list-view'.

2. changing nautilus default view through gsettings:
i) go to command prompt and type below commandline,
Code: Select all
$ gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.preferences default-folder-viewer 'list-view'


I hope this will help people who is struggling with nautilus like me.

???
Be less generic. One question = One answer.
What is the question?
What do you get?
If you made a few attempts, tells what you did.
It is known that gnome is a heavy change, but dconf-editor works, and I can change some settings.
