No longer have the option to PIN Nautilus to panel..? Other apps pin, OK. Also always defaults to 'show hidden files' no matter if I uncheck it in settings.

Cheers guys :)

@GeneC I just pushed an update to budgie-desktop to fix Nautilus pinning, I'll have to look closer at the hidden files thing, but likely that
means a patch to Nautilus itself

Hi Ikey..

I just downloaded and installed the Beta iso. Nice installer... Real nice slick, modern look on the desktop everywhere... ;)

Nice job.

Yep, Nautilus does not pin on Beta either. Neither does gedit. (no option in right click menu).

Chrome, terminal, setting software center, do pin.

The hidden files thing is fine on Beta. My Alpha is old, probably something I did, no worries there...

So the problem is that the GNOME stuff are renaming their .desktop files org.gnome.BlahBlah, and the wmclass
does *not* match. So I'll add a fix for GEdit too.

For now, run updates in evolve-sc, Firefox 35.0.1 also just landed, as well as an updated flash plugin, and a corrected
Faba icon theme. Just pushed em all :)

Once thats done you need to logout and back in and Nautilus pinning will work again

Yep! That fixed that.
Getting acquainted with the new software center. I like...
