Install Nemo File Manager in Ubuntu 13.04, 12.10 using ppa

Nemo file manager is a complete fork of Nautilus 3.4 and its goal is to extend the Cinnamon user experience to desktop and file management. It looks similar to Nautilus. At the moment the only visual differences are on the toolbar and the sidebar. The content pane and desktop layer look the same as before. Differences from Nemo 1.0.0 to Nautilus 3.6:

  • All the features Nautilus 3.4 had and which are missing in Nautilus 3.6 (all desktop icons, compact view, etc..)
  • Open in terminal (this is part of Nemo itself)
  • Open as root (this is also part of Nemo)
  • File operations progress information (when you copy/move files you can see the percentage and info about the operation on the window title and so also in your window list)
  • Proper GTK bookmarks management
  • Full navigation options (back, forward, up, refresh)
  • Ability to toggle between the path entry and the path breadcrumb widgets
  • A lot more configuration options
