Elementary OS uses a program called files as the default file manager.
I would like to use Nautilus as my default file manager as used in Ubuntu 12.04 . I have GNOME Nautilus 3.4.2 installed on my machine, but however the only way to invoke this file manager is using the terminal. How do I set this as default and have an icon in the application menu.
The Desktop Entry,
nautilus.desktop looks like this.
[Desktop Entry] Name=Files Comment=Access and organize files Exec=nautilus %U Icon=system-file-manager Terminal=false Type=Application StartupNotify=true OnlyShowIn=GNOME;Unity; Categories=GNOME;GTK;Utility;Core; MimeType=inode/directory;application/x-gnome-saved-search; X-GNOME-Bugzilla-Bugzilla=GNOME X-GNOME-Bugzilla-Product=nautilus X-GNOME-Bugzilla-Component=general X-GNOME-Bugzilla-Version=3.4.2 Actions=Window; X-Ubuntu-Gettext-Domain=nautilus [Desktop Action Window] Name=Open a New Window Exec=nautilus OnlyShowIn=Unity;
Edit: Updated the Desktop entry to get answer for adding Nautilus to Application menu.
