How To Install A Dual-Panel Nautilus For Gnome

Filed under
Linux

Not so long ago we discovered a simplified version of Nautilus which seems to miss Ubuntu Karmic after all so the only way to get it is through it's PPA.

KDE has Dolphin which has this feature but for Gnome users, there is only Gnome Commander but I for one would like to see this in Nautilus.

Holger Berndt's implemented this into Nautilus so everyone can enjoy the dual panel view.

Here is a video with this modified Nautilus, but please note that some image polishing took place since this screencast was recorded:
