I have real issues with Nemo hanging on file transfer (Both on a desktop and a Notebook) - even after a fresh install. Fails more times than it works over a Samba connection. Also hangs copying disk to disk and also to/from USB. There is no way to abort the copy other than kill the process.
Other Nemo Gripes.
1. The Computer group does not now include the user directories, Downloads, Video etc.. They now appear in Bookmarks.. These get lost in my other bookmarks and is a real pain in the ass..
2. If you change ownership from a command-line 'chown' of a directory and its folder/contents that nemo has open, Nemo crashes and dissapears.
3. Sometimes when you invoke a copy of files, the transfer dialog does not appear and nemo hangs.
4. The custom zoom settings do always not get applied - especially on the file listing. I have to continually go and manually set the zoom level which is sending me nuts.
Why change a working system.. I cannot do squat with a broken file manager.
Just should have kept the old nemo, changed the panel colours and added the buttons to the ribbon/tool bar. woulda worked great.
I do not need a workaround for these issues as I am now forced to revert to LM13 till you get it all stable - I just wasted 2 days upgrading everything and now another to revert.
Comment: You should have done more testing on a radical change/remodel to a fundemental part of the mint software.
