Restoring Custom Folder Icons in Nemo 3.8.3 Sidebar

I was wondering if there's any way to get custom folder icons to display in the Nemo sidebar again? On Mint 18.3 with Nemo 3.6.4, folders you pin to the sidebar appear with their custom icon. But in Mint 19 with Nemo 3.8.3, the sidebar icons are all the same. I have about six folders pinned to the s...

Re: Script/Shortcut to open Nemo to specific dual pane directories?

Have you tried opening two copies of the folder icon and sizing them so each occupies half the screen? That'll open them quickly, but isn't ideal for working. They appear as separately open windows so Alt-Tabbing to them is clumsy. It also prevents the "Copy/Move to Other Pane" context menu from wo...

Script/Shortcut to open Nemo to specific dual pane directories?

Is there a way to create a script and/or shortcut to open Nemo in dual pane mode to two different directories? Specifically, I want to have either a command or an icon I can use to open Nemo to the default Pictures folder as well as a folder I specify. I use a couple of different variations on this ...

XAMPP Problem? Localhost Suddenly Unaccessible [SOLVED}

I've had XAMPP acting as a nice PHP/SQL back end for local web development for a while now. Then, last night, I click one of my localhost bookmarks in Firefox and I get an "Unable to Connect" message. I can't get to localhost/xampp or to localhost/phpmyadmin either. (Tried it in Chrome and a couple ...

Re: Cannot share NTFS partition on samba

Just wanted to say thanks for this. I've been mucking about in Samba settings trying to get a folder visible on my LAN to Windows and Android machines. It finally dawned on me that I could easily share anything that was in /home but nothing that was in /media (kept getting "no permissions"). Adding ...

Mint and ES File Explorer for Android

I've got ES File Explorer on both my Android tablet and phone (both running CyanogenMod11, so local permissions aren't an issue), and I have a devil of a time getting them to copy files from shared folders from either my Mint 16 desktop or my Mint 16 laptop. For example, the "Music" folder on my lap...

Re: [SOLVED]Laptop: Wi-Fi works on A/C, not on battery - Min

Many, many thanks for this. I had the exact same problem after going from Mint 15, which worked fine, to Mint 16. I made the changes you suggested, changing 'iwconfig_batt="power on" to 'iwconfig_batt="power off" in the /user/lib/pm-utils/power.d/wireless file. (I changed it in three places, not two...

Nemo Context Menu: Enqueue in Qmmp by Default

Sad news yesterday that AOL is finally sending good old Winamp to a farm upstate where it can run around and play with all the other great applications they killed over the years. I've been using Qmmp as my Winamp replacement for about a month now and I love it. It's skinnable, the global hotkeys wo...
