Get rid of Preferences dialog

Registered by Daniel Fore on 2012-05-26

I think we can completely get rid of the preferences dialog in Files. Most of the options available should exist as either system-wide options or not at all.

Behavior:

Single click to Open - Should be a system-wide preference if we decide to allow this preference

Auto-selection Speed - Should have a sane default, which in my experience is 0 since this doesn't work very well. Maybe better as a dconf key for more experienced users.

Interface:

Sidebar Icon size: should be a system-wide pref if we decide to allow this

Date format: should also be system wide.

Extensions:

These should be enabled if installed and disabled if not installed. I think it would be better to move extension management into AppCenter. This moves a complex feature (that when implemented fully needs to involved finding and installing extensions) into a place where it makes more sense: the package manager.

And that's all the prefs, poof gone.

Whiteboard

We can't remove the Extension tab if there are no plugins because in the current plugin system there are no ways to get if there are or not installed plugins. We should move it to libpeas also to follow Scratch, Midori and Noise --mefrio
