By default Nautilus does not show the location in the address bar. Here's a simple solution to enable the location in the address bar instead of pressing
gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.preferences always-use-location-entry true
If you prefer the
non geek way, you will need to install
sudo apt-get install dconf-tools
Then, run the command in terminal:
Once the application is open, navigate to: org -> gnome -> nautilus -> preferences.
There, you will find the option
always-use-location-entry, simply enable it by checking it.
