Nautilus Elementary with Linux Mint

Postby t3g on Sun Jul 10, 2011 4:24 am

I've always wondered if Mint whether it was Ubuntu or Debian would benefit from using Nautilus Elementary instead of normal Nautilus. I'm not aware of the huge differences between the two, but I see that Pinguy OS uses it and since Pinguy borrows some elements from Mint, would it be worth it?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Nautilus Elementary is essensially a dead project, it's in some distros repos, in others it's dropped for lack of a maintainer. The Elementary project are shifting to GTK3 like every other Gnome project, their new file manager has a lot of the same features. As cool as it is, there's no point in adding it to Mint now, Mint 11 is already released, Mint 12 will likely be Gnome 3 in some configuration, so possibly incorporating Elementary's new file manager.
