Using Xubuntu 12.04.2 LTS. I followed these instructions:
By running the following:
gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.preferences always-use-location-entry true
I then rebooted. The setting had no effect: the location bar is always hidden.
Screen shots from the various open dialogs upon opening...
Firefox opens files similar to:
The GIMP opens files from "Recently Used", making the location bar completely unavailable (even by pressing Control+L).
Inkscape opens from the most recent directory?
- How do I get all applications to behave the same?
- How can I get the Location path to always be shown?
These two questions relate. It would be great if the GIMP could be set to open in either the last directory the application used or my home directory -- any location that allows the Location bar to be shown (never hidden).
I would like to avoid having to type Control+L to reveal the Location input field every time I want to open a file.
