View Full Version : [gnome] Nautilus 3.6.3 does not remember zoom setting

December 8th, 2012, 05:38 PM
I use nautilus 3.6.3 installed by Gnome 3 Team PPA, it does not remember zoom settings, step to reproduce the problem...
open nautilus (use icon view)
increase the zoom using ctrl+mouse wheel
restart nautilus
Rssult: zoom level is 100% again

Is there any workaround to solve this problem?

I use Ubuntu 12.10 Gnome Remix x32

I had this problem then I realised - dconf!

I think dconf is already installed. You can use it to set many different preferences.

Open dconf then in the left hand expandable menu go to - +org+gnome+nautilus then "preferences" and "list-view" - you can set the default view and zoom levels here.

If you open Preferences, you can set the default zoom level.
