Ubuntu – How to install nautilus in Kubuntu 17.04

kubuntunautilussoftware installation

I recently switched to Kubuntu 17.04 it's amazing but I didn't like dolphin (file manager that comes with KDE suite), so I tried to install Nautilus by doing This

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install nautilus

This should have installed Nautilus but it gave me an error

W: The repository 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/docky-core/stable/ubuntu zesty Release' does not have a Release file.
N: Data from such a repository can't be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
E: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/docky-core/stable/ubuntu/dists/zesty/main/binary-amd64/Packages  404  Not Found
E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

What does this actually mean? Will I not be able to install Nautilus in Kubuntu 17.04?

  • Well it's available in default repositories, so no need to add any PPA.

    First of all delete the added PPA by running the following command:

    sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3

    then install Nautilus from normal repository with the following command:

    sudo apt install nautilus
