[SOLVED] Updating Nemo - how?

Post by Valsodar »

Ever since I started using Linux I figured out many other things, some of them even more complicated than a program update but there's still one I can't figure out how to do, namely - how to update Nemo. Synaptic indicates I have 3.6.4 and the latest Nemo version is 3.6.5. But the icon for the Nemo package is grey and when I right click on the package, there's no "select to update" - only 2 options to uninstall it.

What does apt update && apt policy nemo && apt list --upgradable run in a terminal return?

Is there no nemo update waiting in Update Manager?

Mint's version of synaptic doesn't support updating packages.
For custom Nemo actions, useful scripts for the Cinnamon desktop, and Cinnamox themes visit my Github pages.

True. But if Synaptic shows a newer version is available, Update Manager should display the same. And Update Manager would be able to install the update ... unless you have put something on the blacklist foolishly. :wink:

Code: Select all

$ apt update && apt policy nemo && apt list --upgradable

nemo/sylvia 3.6.5+sylvia amd64 [upgradable from: 3.6.4+sylvia]
nemo-data/sylvia,sylvia 3.6.5+sylvia all [upgradable from: 3.6.4+sylvia]
nemo-dbg/sylvia 3.6.5+sylvia amd64 [upgradable from: 3.6.4+sylvia]
nemo-preview/sylvia 3.6.2+sylvia amd64 [upgradable from: 3.6.1+sylvia]
In the blacklist there are only 4 items and none of them is Nemo: Libre Office, kernels, linux-libc-dev (bc this thing broke my system once) and transmission.

Edit: it does't matter anymore, actually. I just switched to Thunar which is light years ahead of Nemo. Image The best part: has something better than a second panel - middle click on a partition or a folder opens it in a new tab. On top of that thunar can remain open for hours and it never crashes, unlike Nemo.
