    After the postinst scipt creates a backup of the original files "nautilus" and "org.gnome.nautilus.gshema.xml" and replaces these files...

    Finally /usr/bin/glib-compile-schemas is executed... This command updates the gnome registry (dconf variables)

    From your description, i understand the postinst debian script is never executed...

    If something does not work, i am interesting to solve the issue... But on my computer everything is ok

    Maybe there is an error message somewhere?
    Hi Kirby

    Thanks for replying.

    here is what I did:
    before installing I shut down nautilus
    the package was downloaded from launchpad
    double clicked to install
    gdebi gtk asked for password and I gave it
    so you would not expect permission issues
    no complaints when installing
    but no entry in var/log/apt/history
    it made folder /usr/local/nautiluspatch****/
    it put the new nautilus and xml in there
    it created backup folder in there
    in the backup there are the two original files
    so it did all that
    but it did not replace the originals with the patched ones

    so then i rebooted and it was still the old nautilus
    next
    reinstalled nautilus patch
    moved nautilus from /urs/bin to /usr/orig
    moved patched nautilus into /usr/bin/
    moved /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/org.gnome.nautilus.gschema.xml to /usr/orig
    moved patched xml to /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/

    and.....it worked; eureka!

    was the dconf update necessary?
    it worked without.
    I just did that today anyway
    is dconf-editor needed to do this registry updating?
    because I did not have that installed at the time

    by the way, unrelated to this,
    I had a lot of bugs with compiz 9.7.8
    tried previous versions
    found out that 9.4 was buggy too
    but 9.6 seems to work best

    again.....downgrading and pinning
    have to ask father Christmas for an upgraded laptop
    though I like the older tougher cases better.

    greetings
    fen

    I take back what I said earlier. Not about moving away from Ubuntu (still doing that) but I will create a new patch just like the old ones for 12.04.

    It turns out that the caja file manager from the Mate desktop does not make previews of NEF (nikon raw format) files, which I can't live without. Rather than figure out how to make caja show thumbnails, I'll use the more modern nautilus (patched to have an up button, of course). I won't get around to this until I'm back from vacation in a couple weeks.

    Hello fenario,
    I don't know where is the issue on your computer... However yes the dconf update is necessary... I think this step is automatically performed when you logout your gnome session (after coying the org.gnome.nautilus.gshema.xml file).
    The command /usr/bin/glib-compile-schemas is used to force the update without logout the session. So maybe this can explain why your workaround works.
    But i don't know why the patch does not work properly on your computer
    I have test the patch on 5 computers and everything is ok for me...

    Do you have try on another computer? Or maybe somebody has the same issue?

    you could also use Ubuntu tweak. I believe that will work.

    Re: Patch to add "up" and "home" buttons to Nautilus toolbar

    today my nautilus patch is gone and when I try to install it I get the error on screenshot. 2nd screenshot is of synaptic showing I do have that version of nautilus installed. What gives? Ok I figured out I need to revert to the old nautilus but I can't install the old one as it says newer version already installed. Is there a way to keep the deb files current so this doesn't constantly happen or maybe I just just try another file manager but I do like nautilus and am used to it. Now I also read even more functions are due to be removed, see links below.

    I am not knowledgeable enough to understand all this but would the link below make it easier to keep the patch current with each new nautilus?
