Now, a full analysis of the problem: The actual patch which caused this change is this one: https://git.gnome.org/browse/nautilus/commit/?
id=3fd9cba41e56f44ed955b28755ad03135026d021 The function nautilus_file_get_date_as_string gains an extra gboolean parameter "compact" - when true the abbreviated date is returned.
This function is never called directly - it is accessed through the wrapper function nautilus_file_get_string_attribute_q.
To accommodate the new signature of nautilus_file_get_date_as_string a new attribute is added "date_modified_full".After this change, any code in nautilus which uses the file date string will get the abbreviated date.Finally, the file properties dialog is updated to use "date_modified_full" attribute.The datepicker is tied to a standard form input field.Focus on the input (click, or use the tab key) to open an interactive calendar in a small overlay.
Choose a date, click elsewhere on the page (blur the input), or hit the Esc key to close.
If a date is chosen, feedback is shown as the input's value.
The list view of Nautilus 3.6 shows the dates files were modified in a variety of ways: the hour and minute if modified on the current day, and the month and day if modified during the current year, and the year tacked on if modified during a previous year.
I would like to see the entire date and time consistently on all the files (e.g.: ).
I had this set up before, but I can't figure out how to do so with version 3.6.
I did find this question, but the answers no longer apply to Nautilus 3.6: How to change the date format in Nautilus list columns? sudo apt-get build-dep nautilus sudo apt-get install quilt export QUILT_PATCHES=debian/patches apt-get source nautilus cd nautilus* quilt new 999_full_dates.patch quilt edit libnautilus-private/nautilus-column-utilities.c As always, you have to perform these steps every time there is an update for nautilus in Ubuntu.
