Ubuntu – How to rearrange the sidebar in Nautilus


It seems like after updating to Oneiric, the order of Nautilus' sidebar has changed so that the least used group of bookmarks (Devices) is at the top while the most used (Computer) is at the bottom.

Is this normal or did something get botched in my setup? Can I change it? Thanks!

  • I managed to re-order the sidebar, but only by editing the source of Nautilus and re-compiling the package.

    For reference, I recorded some notes and a diff.
