This should work in all supported Ubuntu releases. First get default sort order:
$ gsettings get org.gnome.nautilus.preferences default-sort-order 'name'
Now change it to new sort order by modification date:
$ gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.preferences default-sort-order 'mtime'
The list of all sort values allowed:
- by Name =
- by Size =
- by Type =
- by Modification Date =
- by Access Date =
- by Trashed Date =
