Display the Full Folder Path in the Location Entry with Nautilus in Ubuntu 11.10


This tutorial will show you how to configure Nautical file browser to display full folder path in the title bar. It helps in quickly typing and moving to the location of a directory or file. Its always very convenient to use the location entry instead of the path bar.

Open up your terminal to install a package called dconf-tools that will do the trick.
# sudo apt-get install dconf-tools

After the installation is complete launch dconf-editor from 'Dash'.

Now navigate  to org > gnome > nautilus > preferences.
Here you can see at the right-hand side of the window 'always-use-location-entry'. You just have to check it and close out.




The location entry will be available as soon as you open any folder.




Enjoy !!!
