nautilis fork ( File manager ) with tree view in sidebar.

Was searching for this for sometime now, finally found it.

sudo yum install nemo
sudo yum list nemo*

First just install nemo. Configure nemo not to interfere with default desktop and also make it default handler. So, here are the settings that would do it.

gconftool-2 --set  /desktop/gnome/applications/component_viewer/exec --type 'string' 'nemo "%s"'
gconftool-2 --set  /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/trash/command --type 'string' 'nemo "%s"'
gsettings set org.nemo.desktop show-desktop-icons false

Now, if you need more functionality in file manager then check the list of nemo packages from the output of second command of yum. It has plugins like file preview and so on. Install and enjoy.

New feature in Gnome/Nautilus

One of the things that I never realized that I am missing in Nautilus until they put the feature in was this. When a file is being copied and there is conflict, there should be option to rename the new file being copied. Also, if the file being copied is image then a small preview/thumbnail would be good.

Yesterday while copying some files, suddenly I noticed that this feature is there now. Pretty useful feature to have. Here’s the screen-shot.

With this feature in, users will be in much better position to decide what to do with files in case of conflicts.
