su -c ‘yum install nemo -y’
Each new Gnome release brings new surprises. And I don’t mean this in a good way. From obnoxious behavior like moving the Alt-Drag key to “Super”, to the super popular “Gnome fail whale” screen, and even the brand new “I want to be touched” lock screen which is just confusing, and annoying after the first time you use it (I’ve had friends tell me the computer froze because they couldn’t figure out they had to drag the lockscreen up).
I am not a Gnome user. I’ve switched to Cinnamon since it was first released, however Cinnamon relies on many Gnome components done right by forking Gnome code and putting some thought and flavor into it. Their latest fork comes from Nautilus and is named Nemo (As in, Nautilus’ Captain, hah). Nautilus 3.6 made the side-bar ugly, hid a bunch of options like sorting folders under the “down arrow” button and changed the default search behavior. Nemo brings back the old Nautilus before these bizarre changes.
In Nemo, You can right-click to sort the current folder without going through several layers of obscure menus. Nemo offers a lot more configuration options (compared to Nautilus), and to top it off, Nemo behaves exactly like you’re used to. No new weird behavior! (As a bonus, Nemo doesn’t require Tracker to be installed )
You can install both at the same time, try them out, and when you’re ready, just set your default File Manager to Nemo. In my case, I completely removed Nautilus, as I don’t think it’s idea of a file manager matches what I need from a File Manager.
