[SOLVED] nemo and Upload file to website problem

Post by piroska » Tue Mar 20, 2018 3:31 am

https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?f ... =1#1980698 - this website already has all the details of issue but they can't help

This explains my issue with screen shots.
I cannot select any folder other than Desktop or Downloads when I go to any website and select Upload to upload a pic (or whatever other file) to it.

It does not let me click on any other folder.

In normal desktop use Nemo works just fine.

Help?

Have you got your browser sandboxed - e.g. Firejail / Apparmor or similar.

If so then by design the browser has only limited access to your filesystem as a security measure.
For custom Nemo actions, useful scripts for the Cinnamon desktop, and Cinnamox themes visit my Github pages.
