Unfortunately, Gnome's nautilus address bar is not showing the full path in its top bar. How can I change this behavior?
I'm looking for a solution to display a editable text field instead, like in the good old days.
Press Ctl and while holding it down, press L.
To return to the original breadcrumb view, make sure that the editable text area has the focus then press the Esc key.
To make it permanent (i.e. to always use location entry) run:
gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.preferences always-use-location-entry true
dconf write /org/gnome/nautilus/preferences/always-use-location-entry true
Same commands to revert to breadcrumbs (just replace true with false).
Awesome, the dconf command worked for me, I'm using Unity on Ubuntu 16.04
The dconf command worked for me as well, on Redhat.
this is a great answer. But come on Nautilus, this is esoteric just for the sake of it. ...add a toggle button!
(and i know a little off topic but Nautilus adding "right click over menu breadcrumbs=> copy path to "selected breadcrumb depth" menu option I think would a sensible feature also) :)
