[Bug 1541954] Re: Revert to the previous nautilus version


Why not using Nemo? As far as I know it has all the functionality of
Nautilus 3.14 and then some.

  Revert to the previous nautilus version

Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  The new nautilus is nice but needs some more work before being ready
  to replace the old one.

  Trying to document some of the reasons for the revert

  - Some features have been removed that users seems to care about (upstream is adding back some as options in 3.20)
  - Upstream identified some usability issues with the new file copy dialog which they are trying to address in 3.20
  - The icon view canvas need more work to accomodate other zoom levels
  - There are some annoying bugs that require work (symbols conflict between gtkfileselector and local copy), desktop background handling problems, ...)
  - It's not easy to add back a menubar and we would prefer to have one under Unity for the LTS

  The update is probably going to be worth doing next cycle but it was
  decided in the desktop channel to revert for this cycle
