    Angry F26 Nautilus File sorting Disable Capital letters before Small ones

    The nautilus sorts my files when chosen A-Z option and sorts the capital letter named folders/files before small ones. It is very annoying as i cannot see them alphabetically because half of these are named using small letters and half using capital letters. "a" starts after "Z"

    MATE uses caja, thunar is from xfce I believe. another option is nemo from Cinnamon. both caja and nemo are native GTK+3 applications so you could actually just install them in Workstation without the entire desktop groups.

    That may be expected. The A-Z option may be the same as setting LC_COLLATE="C" in your .bash_profile. That sorts upper case before lower case, which is what I prefer.

    No it isn't expected. It was annoying already in programs which do it like yumexdnf or choose default application. The end user uses english language and expects the sorting to be like actually alphabetically. Such sorting defeats the purpose of alphabetical sorting. I have to go through the list twice in order to search for the relevant item.

    I solved the issue. There was no such line in my .bash_profile. I changed the language from unspecified to english US and also edited locale.conf from english india to english US. Restarted and sorting got fixed.

    I think this has to do something with locale english.
