1. A little tip I discovered the other day… you don’t even have to open a nautilus window to use this feature! Press CTRL+L from your desktop top and a jump to window will appear which will open nautilus at the specified location. I haven’t figured out how to run this window otherwise. I would love to set a different keyboard shortcut for it since CTRL+L conflicts with many other applications (chrome) that are open. Another thing… you can easily open remote locations with the location bar with ftp://username@server or sftp.

  2. Does the CTRL+L work from within ANY other program or only when viewing the desktop with no window selected?

    If it only works from the desktop (which is powered by nautilus) then it might be internal to nautilus, but if you can find the command or script that does it, you could create a global key-binding to it using gconf-editor /apps/metacity/global_keybindings and /apps/metacity/keybinding_commands

    Google ‘ubuntu global key bindings’ for more info.

    P.S. Any idea how to set nautilus to always show the input box?
