    Sidebar menu in folders keeps disappearing

    Hi!

    The sidebar menu in my folders (see attached picture) keeps disappearing. If I press F9 two(!) times it comes back, but if I close the folder and open it again, it's gone.

    Any smart people out there who knows what to to?

    Thanks in advance!

    Not using Unity or Nautilus, but I think you click on the gear icon in the upper right corner & there should be a View option, where you can click on Show Sidebar.

    Or you can follow the instructions Here
    I'm a man, I can re-install, if I have to, I guess!

    The "Show Sidebar"-option is already checked. If I un-check it and check it again, the sidebar appears. But, when I close the folder and open it again, the sidebar is gone. This option is the same thing as pressing F9 i suppose. I can't follow the instructions in the link either because "nautilus" is not available in my "gconf-editor"-list..

    What do you think?

    I have the exact same problem. Did you ever manage to solve it?

    Or does anyone else know why I have to de-select and then re-select "Show sidebar" in order for it to show up?

    In dconf-editor as in screen
    or in terminal
    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.window-state start-with-sidebar true
