    Unreal Unicorn Nautilus replaced with Ubuntu File Manager app.

    Didn't see this anywhere.

    Code:
        "With all the complaints and unhappyness about Nautilus upstream ripping out things like dual pane and other beloved and helpful features I expect we can do better and I think this is the right time to:
    
        a) collect requirements
        b) file whishlist bugs
        c) if *you* want to contribute, get in contact with the developers"

    Re: Trusty Nautilus replaced with Ubuntu File Manager app.

    @Cavsfan I had read about this about a week ago my hopes are high on this new app.
    But for now happy with Nemo

    Re: Trusty Nautilus replaced with Ubuntu File Manager app.

    All the news sites write about Ubuntu being unhappy with Nautilus but this is about using the new converged apps also on desktop. This is also about Ubuntu 14.10 not Trusty.

    Default File Manager with Unity8 in future desktops

    hi,


    with the planned switch to unity8 in 14.10 it is most likely that we
    will also start using the converged QML apps that are developed today.

    Re: Trusty Nautilus replaced with Ubuntu File Manager app.

    This File Manager is a Ubuntu Touch core app which can be installed on the desktop. You will see that it is very much a mobile app. It only accesses one partition. Which is what we would expect on a mobile device. So, there are many improvements needed if it is to replace Nautilus. It is an option. The same can be said about the Music app in Ubuntu Touch. That will import audio files from /home/music but not from another partition. And then there is Browser (Ubuntu Web Browser) which we already have. There are several Touch apps that could in the future become useful desktop applications, even default ones.

    If they use less memory and less CPU resources and have similar functionality, then I am in favour of it. But expect more criticism of Ubuntu going it alone. Nothing new in that regard.

    Regards.

    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    Re: Trusty Nautilus replaced with Ubuntu File Manager app.

    I guess I'm going blind! I did not notice it said 14.10; thought it said 14.04! I have a cataract in my right eye, so I'm going with one good eye here.
    My bad! I thought I had stumbled onto something. Guess I jumped the gun. Good topic I guess though.

    Thanks for the replies.

    we'll have a guess at the dev name for 14.10 at the same time as wondering if this will make it as well

    Re: Unreal Unicorn Nautilus replaced with Ubuntu File Manager app.

    Nautilus certainly leaves a lot to be desired in Trusty, at least at the present in Flashback with Compiz. There are no min. max. buttons and it oddly does not use the window decorator Emerald.
    I cannot even resize Nautilus.

    Thanks for pointing out Nemo. I at first thought of this guy when you mentioned it:
    nemo.jpg
    Since Nautilus is not what it once was here on Trusty, I installed Nemo and realized it was a nice file manager.
    Although I couldn't figure out how to make it default and was going to post that question here but I found these commands:

    Code:
    xdg-mime default nemo.desktop inode/directory application/x-gnome-saved-search
    To check what file manager you have as default:

    Code:
    cavsfan@cavsfan-MS-7529:~$ xdg-mime query default inode/directory
    nemo.desktop
    To test it enter this in terminal:
    Code:
    xdg-open $HOME
    That opened Nemo with my home directory and when I click on Places and then Home, Documents, etc. it opens Nemo. Sweet!

    I got that from this page here.

    Thank you runrickus!
