    In nautilus you usually rename files by highlighting the file and press F2. A second click on a file would not go to rename as in Explorer on Windows.

    I know this. I want to rename files by two clicks as in Windows. I've seen gnome-OSs with such possibility. I'd like to make so in my laptop, but noone know how. So, I ask help here.

    Are you sure that's nautilus, when using gconf-editor I can't find anything related to that.

    Maybe it's kde or thunar that you see before?

    No, It's GNOME. It's nautilus. I'm sure.
    I could miss this key in gconf. Where it must be?

    Nautilus is already 2 click unless its a system file.

    Put mouse over file >right click> put mouse over rename >left click
    Then rename.

    Sharky, I know, how rename file by right click, I've already written about it. I want rename by two left mouse clicks strait on file. As in windows. 'cause everything is possible in linux, it must be able to set it. I'm not so stupid as can't rename file at all. I want set renaming by two left mouse clicks.

    There is no such option, and thus no such key in gconf.

    "everything is possible in Linux" doesn't mean you'd have option for everything in every program. In this case it's still possible, you'll just have to download the source code for Nautilus and program the option yourself. Thus, possible, although not easy.

    So, I have to change code, 'cause, as I understand, there is not so possibility in nautilus.
    It's a pity.
