Nemo Review: A New File Manager for Linux

Filed under
Software

Generally speaking, I have been quite happy using Nautilus with a little help from Tracker from time to time. Nautilus is a no nonsense file manager that allows most users to get the most out of their files and the way they choose to manage them.

If something gets lost, Tracker can be used to locate the missing file very easily, as it allows "searchable" access to e-mail, images and documents so long as you have some idea of what you are looking for. And this is where this latest idea to the file manager world comes in.

Meet Nemo. Simple name, brilliant idea for tracking file changes. Not likely to catch on with the casual user, but I do suspect that Nemo will be a hit with anyone looking to revert to previous versions of select files or showing interest in improved file tracking abilities.

Early Morning Linux Voodoo at Denny’s

I could tell that he wasn’t comfortable turning over control of his laptop to a stranger, but after a few seconds I got a slight nod to the affirmative. I pulled the Acer over to my part of the counter and booted the Linux Mint KDE LTS I keep for just such purposes. As the computer accepted the DataStick as the boot option, I explained to Ed what I was doing. It was obvious he had no idea what I was talking about so we waited in awkward silence for the next few seconds. Finally, the Mint logo appeared on the screen. I opened Dolphin and located the Windows drive then asked him for the name of the file. He couldn’t remember but was sure it was a PDF. A few minutes later, I pulled a pen from my pocket and wrote down the number he needed and slid it back over to him with his laptop. Read more
