I’m trying to migrate from my old Debian laptop to my new Librem 15 running PureOS, but I’m hitting a bit of a snag when it comes to file-sorting.
On my Debian machine, files are sorted correctly, character by character. For example, a directory’s contents would be displayed in this order:
However, on my new PureOS system, consecutive digits are being lumped together, treated as a single character, and sorted by numeric value. For example, the files above would instead be displayed in this order:
This doesn’t look like a big deal at first, aside from being incredibly annoying, but I have several files of which I know the first several digits, but don’t remember the full numeric value of. When sorted properly, I can find them by those first few characters, but when sorted in this bizarre way, it makes it very difficult to locate them. How do I get PureOS to display files in a sorted-by-character way instead of this sorted-by-numeric-value way that it does by default?
