File manager and graphical shell for Cinnamon
  20 reviews

Nemo is the official file manager for the Cinnamon desktop. It allows to browse directories, preview files and launch applications associated with them. It is also responsible for handling the icons on the Cinnamon desktop. It works on local and remote filesystems.

Several icon themes and components for viewing different kinds of files are available in separate packages.

Only second to Caja, IMO. Awesome file manager! :)

I don't know because it works from a Mint installation USB stick but not from my LM installation with no swap file ... it takes time to display thumbs or content of folders and if I want to cut or copy paste a lot of files, then the GUI crashes

Sencerely... the best filemanager! I use Nemo on every distro because, differently from others, Nemo is: solid, simple by default, enable desktop usage and is really fast. With new updates, nemo is a complete filemanager that haven't competitors. It looks elegant and beautiful oob but, if you want, you can easily change some settings. Nemo can respect my workflow and accelerate my dayli operations. I advice to use it in every distributions ;)

Would help to have a scroll bar on the files list when moving several files, can't get to the rest of the files not shown.

I cannot use it to access Samba shares, so use Nautilus instead.

I don't know why the rating is so low? I don't understand what an average user needs in a file manager? It is the CLEANEST file manager on Linux till now.

Needs more power options and customizability. Also, strange behaviour just noted - when editing bookmarks, deleting defaults from "My Computer" such as Videos, Photos, Music etc causes custom bookmarks under "Bookmarks" to jump up into "My Computer". Which is fine, I wanted to put them there anyway ;)
