This is Ubuntu 14.04. Nautilus version 3.10.1.
I have a "file.desktop" file in my personal "~/bin/shortcuts" directory.
When I look at the directory with Nautilus, it shows the "Name=" field value from the desktop file as the file name rather than the real "file.desktop" name. This is true for both List and Icons view modes.
The files having executable bit cleared or set does not change anything.
However, it shows the real *.desktop names for the files at the standard locations:
Another effect: When Ctrl+(drag-drop) these files are not copied. However, Alt+(drag-drop)=>Copy does the copy, and the new file name is named "file (copy).desktop", while Nautilus now shows two identical entries with the same "Name=" field. Confusing...
Anyone has a rationale for this, and how can I turn these effects off? I'd prefer to see the real file names for all files.
