While running the alternative DE Cinnamon, I can't seem to identify a way to add scripts to Nautilus or Nemo.
Does anyone know if they still work?
Hi running Ubuntu 13.10 64bit with the Cinnamon desktop. The file manager used was nemo which worked alright, but I wanted to try nautilus instead, so I removed nemo. Unfortunately this didn't work so well, as nautilus doesn't autostart when i boot up the computer. I have to manually launch nautilus.
I have ffmpegthumbnailer set to generate thumbnails on my system. Nautilus thumbnails work flawlessly, but the thumbnails that are generated in Nemo (my preferred file manager) are always very blurry and distorted once generated.
Clearing the cache and generating the files in nautilus always make the thumbnails sharp and clear in Nautilus.
I am one of thje 25%ers who use the features in Nemo that are missing in Nautilus. However, Nemo wants to install the Cinnamon Desktop as part of the install. I see the cinnamon-translations package referenced in that thread.
On Ubuntu and Linux Mint websites and forums people usually say that these two desktops can be used as parallel sessions, in Ubuntu or Mint without any problem.
I have used a lot Xfce and Xubuntu and have found that Thunar and Nautilus (and nautilus forks like Nemo) are fighting to control the desktop or be the default file manager for Firefox. So, I stay away from Nautilus when using Xfce.
