How To Install Nautilus With “Type-Ahead Find”

Patches On Ubuntu 21.04, 20.10, 20.04 Or 18.04



1. create a file (as root) in /etc/apt/preferences.d with lubomir-brindza-nautilus-typeahead-pin-1001 as the filename – you can just run this Nano command to open a new file at this location:

sudo nano /etc/apt/preferences.d/lubomir-brindza-nautilus-typeahead-pin-1001

Paste this in the file:

Package: *
Pin: release o=LP-PPA-lubomir-brindza-nautilus-typeahead
Pin-Priority: 1001

Now save the file and exit (in Nano, save using Ctrl + o, then exit with Ctrl + x).

2. Add the PPA and install Nautilus with type-ahead find on Ubuntu 21.04, 20.10, 20.04, 19.10 and 18.04, or Linux distributions based on these Ubuntu versions (including Pop!_OS):

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lubomir-brindza/nautilus-typeahead

sudo apt upgrade

nautilus -q
