Oh, and you can run `gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.preferences click-policy single` (or browse to the right setting in dconf-editor) to get the behaviour you want (which is I assume that of items opening upon a single click).

Thank you for the advice! I will endeavour to remember and implement this suggestion when I next get the chance and if Nautilus re-enters the picture as a more satisfactory file explorer than Dolphin.

However, I must note, and I hope that you and/or other readers will take this as a constructive suggestion, that more needs to be done to make the user experience more uniform and/or more obviously configurable so that if people want to evaluate desktop environments and applications without constraining themselves to using the "official" applications for a particular environment, then this can be done without needing to have an intimate knowledge of every environment to hand.

or, you know, open the preferences dialog in nautilus itself. sadly, single-click operations are not yet well designed - there's still lots to do in that area, and the design team and nautilus maintainer are well aware of that.
