Yes - albeit is uses /tmp/ as the temporary location before files are explicitly saved which may not be suitable for recovery after a major crash if you use tmpfs (tmp mounted in RAM). I'm not sure if that location is end us...

But no extension to extend Nemo's very limited file searching abilities. I'm intrigued as to what you think is missing from nemo's search capabilities?

How do you know it's timeshift and why do you think it's a problem? It's normal for Linux to fill the page cache in use- it's just data that has been read from storage for whatever reason and sits in RAM in case its needed again but is instantly reclaimable should the system need it for something el...

Re: HOW-TO: get a speed gain by using zswap

You can't hibernate with ZRAM only, but I believe you can have a set up with a low priority physical swap primarily for hibernation, and a high priority ZRAM swap for actual swapping.

If you are running it from a menu entry skip the terminal and use zenity to display the ouput.

#!/bin/bash
