You could just install Thunar or PCManFM if you lose Nautilus.

Are you using apt-get remove nemo from the terminal, Synaptic mark for removal, or trying to do the removal in Software Manager?

Let me clarify. In a Cinnamon Desktop, how to use Nemo only and uninstall Nautilus without damaging my Cinnamon desktop installation. That's the problem. I realize I worded that oddly. I will go back and edit it.

Thanks. I don't know what my problem was. Maybe i tried it from synaptic. I could swear it wanted to take out some cinnamon files with it. I need to stop staying up so late. :mrgreen:

Re: Uninstall Nautilus..

Postby zerozero on Tue Nov 06, 2012 7:51 am

ok i got it recurrent dependencies
see this
Code: Select all
 zerozero@wine ~ $ apt depends gnome-settings-daemon | grep nautilus
  Depends: nautilus-data
zerozero@wine ~ $ apt depends cinnamon | grep gnome-settings-daemon
  Depends: gnome-settings-daemon
zerozero@wine ~ $

cinnamon depends on gnome-settings-data (let's not forget that cinnamon is heavily based on gnome3 (gnome-shell) and this one depends on nautilus-data

so, easy answer: you can remove nautilus but not the related libraries.
