[F15] Location Bar Text input

Hi there, I was hoping to get some help with my fedora 15 installation.
I'm trying to set it up so that the Nautilus location bar defaults to text input.

In the past few versions of Fedora(namely F14 and F12) there was a setting in gconf-editor that needed to be changed to enable this. I can't seem to find that setting any more.

In F14, I would have to go to
apps->nautilus->preferences and select always_use_location_entry.

But when I go into gconf-editor on this install F15, there is no APPS-> Nautilus.

Using CTRL+L still works to enable it temporarily, but I would like to make it permanent.

I've tried searching google, but all I can find are the instructions I have posted above, which don't help.

Am I missing something or have they changed the way to go about doing this??

Any help is appreciated.

Re: [F15] Location Bar Text input

You could either use dconf-editor and navigate to org.gnome.nautilus.preferences.always-use-location-entry

OR simply do this:
gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.preferences always-use-location-entry true
