In almost any program, when I click on
open, a file chooser dialog opens as shown below. This dialog shows
recently used files
Desktop and so on.
This is extremely annoying. I would like to see my directory tree instead. I know I can get the directory tree when I click on
File System, but I would like to have that selected by default.
I understand this is a
gtk2 issue and there are several questions on stack regarding this problem. But I have found no real solution.
I am not asking how to disable the
recently used files. I have already done that. The list is empty, but
recently used still shows in the file chooser window.
I am using
LXDE desktop environment on Debian Wheezy.
I have created a bounty. I hope somebody can suggest a way how to fix this in source code, so that I can recompile the responsible gtk component/library.
Ideally, in the left pane, I would like to see the filesystem tree starting at
/. On the right, I would like to see the subdirectories/files when I click on a directory.
All the labels on the left should be gone (Search, Recently used, home, Desktop, Filesystem). Only the filesystem tree itself should be there.
