I updated the Nautilus to 3.6 in Ubuntu 12.10, but I didn't find the how to add my folder to "Bookmark" section.

If I press "ctrl+B", it show the list of bookmarks, but I can't add any. I can't drag & drop just like in other versions.

Does anyone know how to do this properly?

Its really a shitty design that you have to google to find this out –  Shervin Oct 27 '13 at 17:50

The bookmarks will be at nautilus

~/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks

You can edit this file to change your bookmarks.

This also work in Ubuntu 13.04, with Nautilus 3.6.3 .

If in doubt, use nautilus --version to see which version you have.

Thanks for the help, it's just what I was looking for. –  euDennis Feb 26 '13 at 23:19

For Nautilus 3.4 I'm not able to drag to create bookmarks either.

I add them editing ~/.gtk-bookmarks. If you don't have that file create it. Example:

$ cat .gtk-bookmarks
file:///home/my_username/Software
file:///home/my_username/Ebooks

Try it out.

I tried, but only show the folder I had in bookmarks in 3.4. I think that in 3.6 it use something different. –  euDennis Feb 20 '13 at 21:44

As of Ubuntu 13.04, apparently, pressing Ctrl+D adds a bookmark to the folder you're in.

Now it's working with ctrl+D, the problem was with 12.10 –  euDennis Jun 6 '13 at 12:42
    
Easier than it looks like. –  Ed Villegas Jun 8 '13 at 23:08
    
Not having to edit a config file is what using Ubuntu is all about! :) They could have made it more discoverable in UI though. –  Diederik Mar 24 at 18:44
    
Works in 12.04 as well. –  sjakubowski Apr 29 at 19:05

Ubuntu 14.04

  1. Open Files file browser.

  2. Browse to the folder that you want to bookmark and open it.

  3. From the Files menu select Bookmarks ->Bookmark this location to bookmark the folder. You can also bookmark the folder by using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+D.

  4. A new heading called Bookmarks will be created in the pane on the left side of Files file browser if it does not already exist, and you can find the new bookmark that you created under the Bookmarks heading.
