Gnome Quite a little interesting tidbit on Planet GNOME today. As we all know, the default file manager for the GNOME desktop is Nautilus. While there's nothing inherently wrong with it, it does have this odd interface where actually more screen space is dedicated to controls and buttons than to the actual part that matters: your files. As part of Ubuntu's Papercuts project, a fix has been worked on.

The article left me scratching my head.

Nothing wrong with Nautilus layout as far as I can see on my own system. Running Fedora 11, vanilla defaults.

What you show here is a sort of mini-mode Nautilus that I find annoying in Fedora. By default this is what you get when opening something from the desktop, and seems to use its own separate config. It also opens folders in new windows. Don't get it how this mode is useful and why it's there.

Wow, you are confused.

This is not a mini-mode or some Fedora thing.

The mode I show in my picture link is the default vanilla Nautilus from GNOME. Spatial mode is the default behavior for GNOME's Nautilus.

I think you must be one of those Ubuntu users that thinks Ubuntu makes GNOME and so the way they do it is the "right" way?
