thanks a lot for this, i cannot believe they removed this from the official package!

I would start by asking the Nautilus maintainers upstream at Gnome to re-add that feature. Only if they are against it (like they are for typeahead) we should consider maintaining an external patch for it. Having to maintain a patch like this one is a pain, I would be happier if we didn't need to do this.

Okay, I found the issue: My files used to be sorted by "Modified — Time" but after upgrading, that option is no longer available yet the files were still sorted by something (neither alphabetical nor chronological). Re-sorting by "Modified" fixes it.

Anyway, speaking of, is there a chance that you could reintroduce "Modified — Time"? GNOME certainly loves taking features away...

It works for me on a 7k files directory. Does the standard nautilus package not crash?

Anuskuss6 commented on 2024-04-06 02:23 (UTC)

Crashes when inside of a big directory (>1000 files).

@artofakume: The build runs correctly for me, are you building a fresh package?

mkdir ~/temp

cd ~/temp

git clone

cd nautilus-typeahead

makepkg -sr

I just wanted to report back that the build is still broken. The error is still the same. Cheers!

artofakume commented on 2024-04-05 13:41 (UTC)

Thanks! I'll try again in a few hours and report back if the build still fails :)

Oops, I copy-pasted the wrong awk command. The build should be fixed now, thanks for reporting.

The "is not a clone of" error is expected because I changed the upstream, and the solution is deleting the "nautilus" directory as you already did.

Build is failing for me. First there was a problem saying: [targetDirectory] is not a clone of I removed the target directory and tried again. This time the clone succeeded but following error appeared instead:

awk: fatal: cannot open source file `/type-ahead-search/{c++;} c==1 && /true/{sub("true", "false"); c++;} 1' for reading: No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().
error: failed to build 'nautilus-typeahead-46.0-1':
