From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; Virgilio6pc)

Description of problem:
can you add an option to change the nautilus treeview from the current using  
arrows to one using pluses and minuses like the one in windows and kde ? (i've 
heard complaints from windows people that they don't like the current treeview).
also add the dotted lines connecting the various nodes (i find it really useful 
when i'm looking at a complex directory tree, with lots of nested dirs)

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

A theme can do this, if it wants.
It shouldn't be a preference separately from that though.
We could maybe enhance the Redmond95 theme this way.
Comment 2 matteo porta 2002-09-23 16:43:06 EDT
yes, please, enhance the redmond 95.

Comment 3 Owen Taylor 2003-02-24 14:14:10 EST
Code would have to be written to add the option; Jonathan says there
is as gnome.org bug about this already, so I'll let him add the 
link and then close this WONTFIX/MoveUpstream.
Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2004-05-12 14:47:57 EDT
I've now filed http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=142415 about
this issue upstream.
