Ubuntu – How to set Nautilus to Default view

nautilus

Using Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit system.

After playing around the Viewing settings for a while i ended up with view like this

enter image description here

Under Default view the name should be under the icon.

Even after selecting the Reset view to Defaults and following this solutions listed here didn't work out.

How do I reset nautilus to the default configuration? ( Solutions to this answers didn't worked for me , tried removing Config files & then doing a re-installation of nautilus changed nothing)

All kind of solutions ( workarounds i mean) are welcomed ( just don't suggest changing nautilus to something else).

I already tried Changing the Viewing options under preferences menu with no success.

  • I believe it's set by the menu Edit=>Preferences, Views tab, under Icon View Defaults, by the checkbox Text beside icons.
