i followed the below link tutorial as follows and had no luck getting nemo to remember a group of tabs "opened bin as root, created the above nemo-tab.py.,made it executable, installed xdotool and wmctrl, and beyond that i'm at a loss. thought rightclicking on bin, open in terminal, and entering nemo-tab.py "/home/mc2635599/Desktop/Shortcuts" would do the trick, but all it did was open a copy of the tab i already had open. once i did the 4th tab i wanted i exited terminal, closed nemo, relaunched nemo and no multiple tabs."
You have misunderstood the answer you linked to. The python script doesn't remember anything. You have to feed it all the tabs you wish to open, in a wrapper script.
So - take a note of the open tabs you wish to "save".
create a script as per the example (Don't forget to replace the paths with the ones you noted first):
#!/bin/bash nemo-tab.py "~/Documents" nemo-tab.py "~/Desktop" nemo-tab.py "~/media/data" nemo-tab.py "~/Videos" nemo-tab.py "~/Pictures"
And launch that script instead of launching nemo directly.
