Nested or categorized Nemo bookmarks?

I have many bookmarks in Nemo and it's becoming confusing. Is there a way to nest or categorize them ?

Re: [Moved to Github] Submenus for Nemo Actions?

I'm ashamed I didn't look also into scripting capability of nemo :oops: Scripting is solving the whole problem. Nemo IS great! Are you saying there's a simpler solution to the one you proposed above? If so could you show an example (preferably with a simpler script item than the one you showed, e.g...

Re: [SOLVED] Nemo: size-dependent "open with"

Looking back at your nemo action setup, It seems the .nemo_action file is missing the ../ in the Exec line to broswe to the previous directory before going to script, because it doesn't seem to work without it:

Code: Select all

Exec=<../scripts/open_image_with.sh %F>

That's great!
Is there a way to still have these action items in a submenu though?

File format-dependent display of context menu script [Nemo scripts]

I have many context menu scripts and always have to navigate through sub-menus to find the right one for each task, even though nearly all of them only apply to specific file types. If there was a way to make script menu items only appear when certain file types are selected in Nemo, it would drasti...

Re: Nemo: size-dependent "open with"

of course, silly me!
I went in an image's properties and changed the default "open with" to the shell script by browsing to it. Do you think there's a better way? (I'm on XFCE)

Re: Nemo: size-dependent "open with"

Thanks very much smurphos. This is very neat!
Either file size or image dimensions would've done it for me.
So I assume there's no way from there to make a double-click on the file execute that script (for the specified file formats)?

[SOLVED] Nemo: size-dependent "open with"

Is there a way (even a hack) to get a certain file type to automatically open with some application based on its size?
In my case I'd like to open images with one app when their size is below a certain threshold and with another app when it's above, just by double-clicking on the file in Nemo.

Re: Use laptop as an external secondary display

Not mirroring but extending. Would your idea still work? (I don't know what RDP and VNC are and will look it up unless you think it won't work for extending the display)

LM19 Cinnamon: Mouse constant speed

I'd like to change the constant speed of my mouse on Linux Mint 19 Tara Cinnamon. Prior to this version, I used the command xinput set-prop <Device ID> 'Device Accel Constant Deceleration' <Value> but that command doesn't exist anymore. Maybe it's a new version of xinput that removed it but anyway I...

Re: 4G USB dongle (YONIS)

I ended up buying this hotspot to ensure it would work. I wonder if it's as efficient as a direct mobile broadband connection but at least I have some internet now :)
Thanks everyone for trying to help me solve this problem and sorry I didn't fight it 'til the end.

Re: 4G USB dongle (YONIS)

I have changed ISP to one that has better coverage of the 4G network and upgraded Linux Mint to 19 and the dongle is just as buggy as before, disconnecting and re-connecting a random number of times and once settled, showing the Mobile Booradband as unavailable. I'm giving up on this dongle for good...

Re: How about Discourse?

The issue for me with Discourse is its space-wasting layout. phpBB displays the title of the thread at the top of every single post as well as the user's signature at the bottom of every single post, thus using more vertical space, which Discourse doesn't do because it has user cards for user info ...
