caja extensions

Post by grekoumint » Tue Dec 03, 2019 3:17 pm

from my over 5 year experience as a user of MINT MATE to both home and business (alongside with windows) I think one thing that could boost mate / caja ...especially over other OSes, is an addon/extension that would add notes/emblems on files /folders that could be read from another mate/caja installation so that some information for the specific files could be transferred to another user
even better if that these properties could be searchable :?
(also a big preview window could be very welcomed like in KDE :o )
an example that comes to mind is tagspaces - Think maybe what if caja had full tagging capabilities ...even better with coordinates!! :shock:
and all these "transmittable" from mint user to mint user!! ...and geotagging!!!
who could resist who could compete?

If you install caja-xattr-tags you can add arbitrary tags to your files and those tags will be portable.
Tune up your LM 19.x: ppa:gm10/linuxmint-tools
