nautilus elementary

We already covered Nautilus Elementary and how to install it in Lucid but the instructions in that post required you to compile it.

But starting a few minutes ago, Nautilus Elementary 2.30 is available to install for Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx users via a PPA repository. To install it simply paste this in a terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:am-monkeyd/nautilus-elementary-ppa
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
nautilus -q #restarts nautilus

It's that easy!

Oh, and one more thing: Nautilus Elementary got (about 2-3 days ago) a really nice combined mode button (only works with the horizontal toolbar):

If you want to remove Nautilus Elementary 2.30 and return to the default Nautilus in Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx, I suggest you use PPA Purge, a very easy to use utility which completely removes and applications installed from a PPA and installs the packages in the official Ubuntu repositories.

Update: you can now get Nautilus Elementary Breadcrumbs for any theme. Read here how to do it.
