While tring to use nautilus as primary file manager for xfce i notice that it seems impossible to reach the preference menu in xfce.

On a normal ubuntu installation with gnome or similar it is reachable by using the menu in the top bar under the File section.

The proble is that xfce or kde doesn't have such bar and it seems that the application menu is not showing anyware.

What i want to now is if it is normal and if there is a way to get around this (same keybord shortcut or other ...)

As it is it work but is not configurable at all.


Install dconf-editor (part of the dconf-tools package) and traverse to org>gnome>nautilus. All of nautilus' configuration settings are stored there and can be changed as required.
