    Question how to remove the text labels beside toolbar buttons?

    This problem has been bothering me for quite a while. Here is how my nautilus toolbar looks like:

    As you can see, only Back and Forward buttons are labeled. I hope I can remove these labels to save my screen estate, but I can't find any possible option in Edit -> Preferences after careful review.

    I believe this will work for you:

    In the terminal, write:

    gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/interface/toolbar_style --type string "icons"

    However, I prefer to have the text below, as with:

    gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/interface/toolbar_style --type string "both"

    No prob. Took me a second actually to remember as I use nautilus-elementary (as it's just an updated nautilus which blows normal nautilus out of the water HEHE) and it automatically removes the text from the icons in it, yet for programs like gedit, I still have the text below the icons just as I want.

    Since GNOME 3 it changed.


    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface toolbar-style 'icons'
