Re: Displaying folder sizes in Nemo?

Nemo quick preview should work fine with single or double click - it does with my current single click setup.

Re: Displaying folder sizes in Nemo?

Double Commander is a great Linux clone of Total Commander (most of its plugins are Linux-compatible!) which is a Windows clone of MS-DOS Norton Commander. ;-)

For displaying folder sizes in Nemo, I also made a feature request here:

Re: Displaying folder sizes in Nemo?

Actually, displaying folder sizes (instead of number of items) is something else.
I decided to submit a bug report because Nemo fails to compare source size and target space before starting copy/move operation.

Re: [SOLVED] Communication between Android phone with Mint 19.3

Although I know Cinnamon is based on Gnome, I didn't know that Gnome Shell Extensions could be installed and used in Linux Mint!
Does that solution really work under Linux Mint Cinnamon???

Re: Displaying folder sizes in Nemo?

It seems there are 2 possible solution paths for this:
1. Making a Feature Request (https://github.com/linuxmint/nemo/issues/)
2. Creating a Nemo Extension
so as to replace "the number of items" with "size" to be displayed underneath the folders.
I think it will be much more useful.

[SOLVED] Nemo's CopyTo/MoveTo right-click menu options disappeared

After upgrading from 19.2 to 19.3 I've experienced only this minor problem which affects 2 others (rarely used) user sessions as well - so it should be a system-wide issue. I see that this came up also about a year ago (https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=280193) while upgrading from 1...

Re: How to troubleshoot slow login

A note of caution and a tip for users trying any action sourced from a third party. If the Icon-Name specifies an icon that doesn't actually exist in the icon path of your system the action won't appear at all in the context menu. So if you are having issues with an action not showing up commenting...
