How to: Nautilus compact column view (Win Explorer-like)

Postby copycat » Mon Jun 23, 2008 10:03 am

The only file explorer supporting it was thunar, but it doesn't work so well TBH. Nautilus 2.24 will support this and tabbed windows as well, and the compact list view has been added to the trunk recently.

Here's the tutorial: http://www.zdi.it/?p=11

Enjoy!

Found a solution to restore mintMenu functionality. You have to reinstall some packages (with your original mint repositories)
Search and install the following packages with synaptic:

    glade-gnome (2.12.2-0ubuntu1)
    python-all (2.5.2-0ubuntu1)
    python-all-dev (2.5.2-0ubuntu1)
    python-gnome2-desktop (2.22.0-0ubuntu1)
    python-gnome2-dev (2.22.0-0ubuntu1)
    python-pyorbit-dev (2.14.3-2ubuntu1)
    python2.4 (2.4.5-1ubuntu4)
    python2.4-dev (2.4.5-1ubuntu4)
    python2.4-minimal (2.4.5-1ubuntu4)
