    [Nautilus] Sort by & Group by File Order Setting

    Nautilus Sort by & Group by File Order Setting

    How do I get both the Sort by Name and Group by Type option similar to the Windows Explorer in Windows XP & Vista?

    Cool Re: [Nautilus] Sort by & Group by File Order Setting

    I think it might be really hard to get the view exactly like this..

    I added the idea to Ubuntu Brainstorm:

    I added the idea to GNOME Nautilus/Ideas:

    Has anyone found how to do this?
    I would really benefit from sorting and grouping

    Unfortunately, the idea has yet to be implemented.

    This is marked on Brainstorm as implemented early 2011 but I can't see anything else about it (let alone how to turn this on).

    Any idea what happened?

    Doesn't seem to have been implemented or done so usefully
    Would only be of good value in list view where you can list with type first but can't sort by type (list view has no 'default_sort_order' setting

    In icon view you can sort by type but not that useful really

    Gnome Commander offers some sorting filters

    Is there a reason why?
