[SOLVED] Folders open in Nautilus instead of Nemo

Postby rprego on Fri Nov 30, 2012 5:06 am

Hi everyone, I'm running Mint 13, and I recently installed Cinnamon 1.6.7 and Nemo 1.2.2 via the backports repo. I'm having a weird issue on one of my machines: when I double-click folders or links, they open in Nautilus rather than in Nemo. When I double-click Computer or Home on the desktop, for example, they open in Nautilus, and I would like them to open in Nemo instead. I tried changing /usr/share/applications/defaults.list to say inode/directory=nemo.desktop, but it changes back to inode/directory=nautilus.desktop after every reboot. The strange this is that I installed Cinnamon & Nemo on another machine running LM 13 exactly the same way - and I'm not having this problem on my other machine (Computer, Home, etc. all open in Nemo as expected). Anyone have any insight into what could be causing this, or what I should try to fix it? Thanks for any help!

Is it possible to remove Nautilus? I think this might solve your problem:

In terminal:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get remove --purge nautilus

Thanks for the reply; I'm sure that would probably do it, but I'm not comfortable removing Nautilus yet. And like I mentioned, I'm not having the same problem on my other machine, which still has Nautilus installed. So while that would be a solution, I'm hoping to get to the root of the problem.

Remove nautilus. Nemo rocks, doesn't crash and is better! Next.

Only reservation I had about removing Nautilus was losing Dropbox integration, but then I remembered that Nemo has Dropbox integration as well. Installed nemo-dropbox package and removed Nautilus, everything's good. Marked as solved, thanks.

Please direct me to Nemo's equivalent of Nautilus' scripts facility.
There is none.
Until there is, Nemo cannot stand in Nautilus' shadow.

Place executable scripts in ~/gnome2/nemo-scripts. They will then show up in Nemo's right-click menu and under Nemo's file menu. There are special Nemo script environment variables for use in scripts.
