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.

bash debug – log all executed commands

Screenshot of a Bash 3.1 session demonstrating its particularities. Shows exporting a variable, alias, type, Bash’s kill, environment variables PS1, BASH_VERSION and SHELLOPTS, redirecting standard output and standard error and history expansion. A POSIX session is launched from a normal session. Finally, the POSIX session kills itself (since just “exit” would be too boring). (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Whenever I am writing a script in perl or bash, I always wish that there
was some way to have all the commands logged or output to screen. I know
there is “set -x” option to have debugging enabled, but sometimes that
seems to be too much information and I dont really need all that. So, here
is something I found recently for bash to log all the executed commands.


This will echo/print all the commands on the stdout.

findmnt – find all the mounts and their source

If you are looking for the source of a mount and the various options used in the mount, then the quickest way to get that is ::


By default, with no parameters, it lists all the mounts in a tree like view and all the options used to mount the path. It also lists the source of the mount.

By default again, it uses some capabilities of the terminal to show the tree which you can disable with the option “-a”.

You can check the man page for more information on this command, it has some pretty good examples as well.

And just in case, you are unable to find the package (util-linux) containing the command:

sudo yum install util-linux
