Description Pierre Sarrazin 2004-11-27 02:40:09 EST
Description of problem:
In the Icon View, there apparently is no way to have a
toolbar with the standard buttons, including an "Open Parent"
button.  One has to discover the "Open Parent" command in the
File menu.  The Preferences and the GConf settings do not
seem to mention any possibility of a toolbar.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a directory other than "/" in Icon View.
2. Fail to find a "Show Toolbar" command in the View menu.
3. Fail to find this in the Preferences.
4. Fail to find this in the GConf under /apps/nautilus

Actual results:
The only apparent way to go to the parent is to use the
File menu.

Expected results:
A standard file manager toolbar (like in previous versions
of Nautilus).

Additional info:
My system was upgraded from FC2 to FC3.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

There's a GConf key that can be set to disable the spatial view for nautilus and
go back to the browser-like view in FC3:

In later releases it's possible to set it to the browswer mode from
Edit->Preferences, which would be what you want:
