I am struggling a little bit with this issue I'm having with Nemo in Linux Mint (I just upgraded to 17.3 but this is happening since 17.1).
In brief, I accidentally removed some shortcuts from the "My computer" section in the left sidebar of nemo as a user. I tried to restore them, nbut apparently I can't add icons to that tab, nor drag them from the "bookmark" section to the "My Computer" one. If I start nemo as root, I can add, remove, drag and drop icons in that tab, but of course the changings does not apply to the "user" version.
Moreover, I tried to perform a clean install of nemo after purging it, but unsuccessfully.
Can someone explain me where th configuration file of this sidebar are located and hot to delete them, or set their permission to user in order to drag and drop correctly into that tab? Alternatively, is there a "real" way to clean install Nemo and only Nemo without touching the other GTK features?
Thanks a lot for your time, any help is really appreciated!
