On other operating systems the file chooser dialog in applications lets you do things like:
- see a larger preview of images in the current directory
- create a new folder
- change the view of the current directory between vertical list, horizontal list, small icons, large icons, thumbnails etc
I am in Ubuntu 12.04LTS (Unity) ...As far as I can tell there is no way to do any of these things. My file choosers look like this one I found on Google Images:
...except that I don't get the list-detail view, I get horizontal rows of icons.
I had a Google and found this: http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/idea/240/ (and hundreds of duplicate requests for the same functionality)
So apparently this have been fixed since v8? How do I get it to work?
