Nautilus Location Bar - Fix Text Mode

Gnome keeps getting dumber and dumber all the time. First the "Open in Terminal" right click option was gone, now the address bar.

Before at least you had a crayon button to toggle it. Now you need to type / and start typing or Ctrl-L to show it. Makes it a bit harder to copy/paste stuff to it.

Here's how you fix it:
gconftool-2 --type=Boolean --set /apps/nautilus/preferences/always_use_location_entry true

or you can tick the respective box in graphical mode after running gconf-editor PS i have to admit Gnome is getting worse by the day, but i'm not too crazy about KDE4 either... :) KDE 3 was great in my opinion... the last version was stabile, fast (especially when running slack :D) and full of neat/useful options and features; now it's all glossy and what not, yet less functional PPS how you've been man B-) long time no hear
