    Hello and thanks. It is true that if you want to go back to the original, change true to false in the string. :)

    So good, I’ve really been looking for to change the buttons and have the url-searchbar instead. I tried this:

    gconftool-2 -s /apps/nautilus/preferences/always_use_location_entry –type bool true

    But it did not work, I had this line in 10.04 LTS -> 11.04 and noticed that it did not work anymore in 11.10. I’ve really been looking for a solution since I installed 11.10 it is now 3 weeks ago. But today I was lucky, I found the solution here. Thank you so much you have helped me to get my Ubuntu just like I wanted it. I will add this page to my bookmarks to keep it :D :D :D
