  • RabbitVCS Nemo — Integrate RabbitVCS into Nemo.
http://www.rabbitvcs.org/ || rabbitvcs-nemoAUR

See nemo-extensions github repo for all extensions.

Configuration

Nemo is simple to configure graphically, but not all potential configurations can be done via the preferences menu in nautilus. More options are available with dconf-editor under org.nemo.

Show / hide desktop icons

To enable/disable desktop icons rendering feature in nemo, change the following setting true or false (false to hide, true to show):

$ gsettings set org.nemo.desktop show-desktop-icons false

Make Nemo your default file browser

Add the following line to the Default Applications section of the file ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list

[Default Applications]
inode/directory=nemo.desktop

Change application for "Open in terminal" context menu entry

$ gsettings set org.cinnamon.desktop.default-applications.terminal exec terminal-name

Tips and tricks

Nemo Actions

Nemo allows the user to add new entries to the context menu. The file /usr/share/nemo/actions/sample.nemo_action contains an example of a Nemo action. Places where to put custom action files:

  • /usr/share/nemo/actions/ for system-wide actions
  • $HOME/.local/share/nemo/actions/ for user actions

Pay attention to the name convention. Your file has to preserve the file ending .nemo_action.

Clam Scan

$HOME/.local/share/nemo/actions/clamscan.nemo_action
[Nemo Action]
Name=Clam Scan
Comment=Clam Scan

Exec=gnome-terminal -x sh -c "clamscan -r %F | less"

Icon-Name=bug-buddy

Selection=Any

Extensions=dir;exe;dll;zip;gz;7z;rar;

Moving files

$HOME/.local/share/nemo/actions/archive.nemo_action
[Nemo Action]
Active=true
Name=Archive %N
Comment=Archiving %N will add .archive to the object.
Exec=<archive.py %F>
Selection=S
Extensions=any;
$HOME/.local/share/nemo/actions/archive.py
#! /usr/bin/python2 -OOt
import sys
import os
import shutil

filename = sys.argv[0]
print "Running " + filename
print "With the following arguments:"
for arg in sys.argv:
    if filename == arg:
        continue
    else:
        print arg
        #os.rename('%s','%s.archive') % (arg,arg)
        shutil.move(arg, arg+".archive")
