How can I sort the files in my download folder in the order of the date of download?
My OS is Ubuntu 14.10, and I am using Nautilus - Files 3.10.1.

If you just want to see the files (not parse the file names), you can use
The last file printed is the eldest. To print the newest last, use
-t sort by modification time, newest first -r, --reverse reverse order while sorting
If you want to parse these file names or somehow pass them to another program, you should not use
ls since there are various issues associated with parsing its output. Bad handling of spaces in file names is the classic problem. If you need to parse these file names, edit your question and I can provide a solution depending on what exactly you need to do.
