I'm in the middle of a migration from Ubuntu to Fedora. How do I make Nautilis in Fedora show the hidden files and folders (those with a dot)? It's Nautilus 3.8.2, if I go to Preferences and choose "show hidden and backup files", they keep getting ignored.

I just found out I can press CTRL+H to show hidden files. It is a non-satisfactory workaround, as I have to press it every time I open a new window. –  That Brazilian Guy Oct 8 '13 at 15:12
