from the past Windows times, I was used to prepend files or folders with a hash sign “#” to make them appear first in the file explorer view.
In Nautilus, when I prepend a folder name with #, it gets listed last.
When I prepend a folder with any other symbol, the symbol seems to get ignored and the folder gets sorted by the first alphabetic character.
My two questions:
a) is there any symbol / sign I could use so Nautilus lists that file /folder first, ie before alphabetic characters?
b) or is there a configuration / extension which adjusts the sort order?
Also, could someone please point me to the spot in the source code where the sorting happens? Especially the special case that items with # gets listed last? I am no C guy, but I guess I’ll understand the code when I look at it.
Thank you very much!
P.S.: I also asked this question on the Fedora board
