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."

Save Nemo tabs in Linux Mint


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):

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.

  • "And launch that script instead of launching nemo directly.". so do what i did and once created click on the nemo-tab.py? then i can send that to the desktop or create a shortcut wherever i want it? – MrGrimm2635599 Dec 24 '18 at 21:56
  • No, nemo-tab.py is not the wrapper script. The wrapper script has nemo-tab.py "/some/path" lines in it. You create a wrapper script which calls nemo-tab.py several times, each time with a different argument, and launch THE WRAPPER SCRIPT instead of nemo or nemo-tab.py. – Dani_l Dec 25 '18 at 9:02
  • You create the wrapper script yourself, based on your personal preference and requirements – Dani_l Dec 26 '18 at 13:17
  • Please read the tutorial and my answer more carefully- create a script appears in both – Dani_l Dec 26 '18 at 13:18
  • ok took me a minute but that #/bin/bash is a text file like the .py file is and i just save that as a script file, right? so.... #!/bin/bash nemo-tab.py "/home/mc2635599/Desktop" nemo-tab.py "/home/mc2635599/Desktop/Shortcuts" nemo-tab.py "home/CombinedPartitions/Downloads/Torrents" nemo-tab.py "home/CombinedPartitions/TV Series" nemo-tab.py "home/ComBinedPartitions/TV Series/Last Night's" – MrGrimm2635599 Dec 26 '18 at 13:38
