Text address line (Ubuntu 10.04)


Q. Where's the toggle button to change between text address line and button address line (in Ubuntu 10.04).

A. Yet another "feature" of Lucid/Gnome - developers decided to remove the toggle button. Here's what I'm talking about:


This icon is missing: toggle_icon

To fix this, run the following in terminal:

gconftool-2 --type=Boolean --set /apps/nautilus/preferences/always_use_location_entry true

You should get the following when you start nautilus next time:


Text-Mode Location Bar In Nautilus

If for some reason you want to revert back, run the following in a terminal:

gconftool-2 --type=Boolean --set /apps/nautilus/preferences/always_use_location_entry false

But how do we toggle between these modes with a click on a button? (I.e, how do we show the missing icon mentioned above; the pencil)
