Is it just my install?

I'm missing Edit > Preferences.

Just checking before bug report.

Thanks

Missing here - ends on "Move to Trash"

likely other 'missing' atm - some of this
> NAUTILUS_ACTION_NEW_WINDOW,
> NAUTILUS_ACTION_CONNECT_TO_SERVER,
> NAUTILUS_ACTION_PREFERENCES,
> NAUTILUS_ACTION_HELP,
> NAUTILUS_ACTION_ABOUT,
> NAUTILUS_ACTION_CLOSE_ALL_WINDOWS,

edit
you never know with gnome whether it's something someone decided to make not visible or maybe some gtk change not yet implemented or whatever, - can't see why they'd be made not visible so would expect to show up at some point

Thanks. I was trying to use apport-bug but it failed on id`ing the package.

Edit: As a godawful work around, I used dconf editor and 'org.gnome.nautilus.preferences' to change preferences. This will most likely be fix for tomorrows iso install.

I see this missing 'edit/prefernces' only in unity/gnome-shell session but it's there in cinnamon/lxde/xfce session as well as the 'Help' menu.

The menu items are in gnome-shell, just not in nautilus - seen in the application menu (drop down from "Files" in panel

No Edit>Preferences in Nautilus (while in Unity)... I'll check in other environments later...
