When I launch nemo I get this error

** (nemo:55622): ERROR **: 19:38:37.567: boolean metadata with value other than true or false
Trace/breakpoint trap (core dumped)

How do I fix this?


  • Linux mint 20 64-bit
  • MATE desktop
  • I made an issue on github and the creators of nemo told me to use this command (and it worked) gio set ~ metadata::nemo-icon-view-auto-layout true

I found out I had old volumes and disks in metadata, so I just removed them and it worked.

rm -rf ~/.local/share/gvfs-metadata/*
