in my GNOME 2 ubuntu i used to issue this command to open a new window to browse the files in some folder:
For example, i could go to a difficult location through the console, and when i found it I opened the window:
cd /home/santiago/Music/Blues/BB-King/Live/Live at... nautilus ./
And that folder was displayed in the window, and i could browse it regulary.
But now I have GNOME 3 on Fedora 15 and that doesn't work any more.
I think it's becouse the process doesn't return control to the console, so if i want to do that different times, the subsequents calls to
nautilus ./ open the first location.
