    nautilus missing Preferences under Edit

    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
