I run Ubuntu 10.10. At first, icons in Nautilus got smaller and zoom didn't work. Then when I started again it opens in only one window and lost his selections in "View". To show what I mean here is the screen shot:

Last time I installed PHP-GTK and all sorts of libraries that is needed for that and was working fine, but the next time I turn on computer I got this nautilus behaviour and bluetooth icon in panel which I removed long time ago.

When I do sudo nautilus it opens fine except icons which are still smaller than before. It opens with this message:

How can I get back to the old nautilus?

Go to View and select the Show lateral pane ... and while you're there up the size of the icons... –  Uri Herrera Dec 17 '11 at 5:50
    
And don't use sudoto run GUI applications use gksu. –  Uri Herrera Dec 17 '11 at 5:50
    
that's where the problem is. That "show" options in "View" have dissapeared. –  user1079002 Dec 17 '11 at 7:35
    
do you also have thunar installed? –  cipricus Mar 20 '12 at 23:54
    
I reinstalled ubuntu but I don't think I had the thunar installed at that time. –  user1079002 Mar 22 '12 at 7:47
