    Missing settings in new Nautilus?

    Hi,
    just upgraded to Quantal and using Gnome Shell.
    I am trying to figure if I am missing something or they really cut the balls of Nautilus.

    1 - where is "open in new window"?
    2 - where is the bottom status bar with free space of current mount?
    3 - how can I sort files and folders in a meaningful way? (sort by name, first folders then files)

    I'm using 12.10 with Unity but that shouldn't make any difference

    • "Open in new window" is in the "File" menu and the context menu
    • You can enable the status bar using "Statusbar" in the "View" menu

    unfortunately it makes all the difference
    under files there is only "new window", which opens Home. and it is neither in context menu right clicking on folders.
    and there is no View menu, at least none with status bar that i can find.

    i also noticed that they removed hh:mm from modified column. i think i will have to search for an alternative, which is extremely disappointing. i still miss gnome classic...

    Are you using any PPA or another unofficial package source for Gnome? What does
    Code:
    apt-cache policy nautilus
    print?

    Yes, GNOME removed some features from Nautilus in GNOME 3.6. Which is why Ubuntu ships Nautilus 3.4. But I guess your PPA got you Nautilus 3.6

    i think so, then i am right to blame gnome once again after leaving classic.
    for now pcmanfm seems to do the work even if it looks a bit rough.
