The appropriate way to remove these kind of files is by using the inode value of the file. Use the following command to get inode value ls -li 12582925 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 646 May 23 02:19 ?ssolveIncpUL46pK.txt The first field of the longlisted result is inode value. Then use the find command to delete the file w.r.t inode. find . -inum ...

The character is not a question mark. The ls utility will replace non printable characters with ?. It is further unclear whether the non printable character really is the first character in the filename or whether there may be one or several spaces before that. Would you want to delete both those files, you could match the "bad part" with * and then ...

It is not recommended to use a * to remove files. It could match more than you like. Being in Debian, the ls (from GNU) command is able to print the values of the files in quoted form[1]: $ ls -Q "\nssolve" "\n\nssolve" "y" "z" Or, even better, list files with quoted names and inodes: $ ls -iQ 26738692 "\nssolve" 26738737 "\n\nssolve" 26738785 "y" ...

Nemo uses the gsettings configuration. This restored the intended behavior: $ gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.default-applications.terminal exec gnome-terminal On Ubuntu it's different for some reason: $ gsettings set org.cinnamon.desktop.default-applications.terminal exec gnome-terminal

It may be too late for you, but nemo -q did the trick for me. I had the exact same problem.

As far as I know (I haven't looked directly at the code for Nemo, but I've seen a lot of other file managers), it's using a call to the UDisks DBus API. You can (probably) replicate the call that Nemo does manually with the command: udisksctl mount --block-device=/dev/whatever Which should spit out the path that the device got mounted on (on most systems ...

Nemo uses GLib, so you should have access to the .hidden feature that it provides. Create a file named .hidden in the parent directory containing the files or directories that you want to hide, then in this .hidden file list everything you want to hide, e.g. Documents Videos Music All files listed in .hidden will be hidden by default (use Ctrl+H to unhide)...

If the file dialog is based on the Gnome toolkit (Gtk), then you should be able to toggle the location popup using keyboard shortcut Ctrl+L See GtkFileChooserWidget: The “location-popup” signal

You would have to change each of the applications not to 'just' open with nemo with the directory as an argument but with the file. Nemo already supports this, and you can easily test from a terminal with: touch /var/tmp/xxx.txt nemo /var/tmp/xxx.txt this opens a view on /var/tmp with xxx.txt selected (tested with nemo version 2.0.8)

The environment variable GIO_LAUNCHED_DESKTOP_FILE contains the path to the .desktop file, and GIO_LAUNCHED_DESKTOP_FILE_PID contains the process ID of the program originally invoked by the .desktop file. You need to check the PID, otherwise you might incorrectly believe the script to have been invoked by a desktop file, whereas it was actually invoked by a ...

When you right click the file or folder in Nemo, there will be a + sign at the top. Clicking that will expand the menu and give you the options you want. For what it's worth, I found this functionality at this link: https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?t=212256

The setting that controls immediate deletion is available in dconf-editor. org nemo preferences enable-delete. Even though the default setting is enabled it didn't work correctly. I disabled it and re-enabled it again, and now ShiftDel works as expected: Files-be-gone-for-good...

First of all I am using Linux Mint Debian Edition 201403, VLC version 2.1.1 Ricewind. Now as for the solution. 1. We first need to be sure that inside VLC, we click on Tools >> Preferences menu option, this will open the preferences window dialog, and we need to make sure the Options "Allow one Instance" and "Enqueue items into playlist in one instance mode"...

I finally found the issue in /usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache, with the following entry: inode/directory=org.gnome.baobab.desktop;nemo.desktop; changing it back to: inode/directory=nemo.desktop; solved the issue.

I do not know the exact answer to your question. But this may help. I am using Fedora and not Mint however I still believe this should work. There are different shortcut keys assigned for a particular type of command execution.You can find them in your System -> Preferences -> [System] ->Keyboard Shortcuts. You will also see various different ...

Yes, it's possible but not obvious how to do it: Create the file ~/.gnome2/accels/nemo: $ mkdir -p ~/.gnome2/accels $ touch ~/.gnome2/accels/nemo Then add the following line in that file (replace "F4" with whatever shortcut you want to use): (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/DirViewActions/OpenInTerminal" "F4") This worked for me with Nemo 3.6.5 on ...

In Nemo, a terminal is just part of the package! No funny shortcuts needed! :-) Just ensure the plug-in is installed: sudo apt-get install nemo-terminal Which will ensure you have a terminal ready at all times. If you want additional terminals on top of the standard one, just right-click any directory and choose the menu-item Open in Terminal and it'll ...

Some information that might makes it easier to track the issue. --fix-cache The --fix-cache option was included in version 2.6.2.

Install dconf-tools, Navigate to org > gnome > desktop > thumbnailer, Paste the MIME type in the value field of disable key (as described for PDF files here). This will not delete existing thumbnails for files, but once a file is updated or for new files - no thumbnails will be produced. For pdf: 'application/pdf' For odt: 'application/vnd.oasis....

If you really mean "forget the password" it probably already did within microseconds of you entering it. Persistence of authentication through the login session is maintained in Ubuntu-ish systems by ssh-agent and gnome-keyring-daemon. By their nature of operation (non-invertable hashing) it may be fundamentally impossible to selectively remove one ...

It's not easy to tell exactly what distro use by default nemo. because those kind of applications are not a part of a the core system. What you can do instead is check what distro have the nemo package available. (and thus you could replace the default file explorer). You can search for the nemo package on different distro here or here

According to its man file, Nemo has a --geometry command line option. Examples noted in the source file https://github.com/linuxmint/nemo/blob/master/src/nemo-main-application.c include: nemo --geometry=+100+100 nemo --geometry=600x400 nemo --geometry=600x400+100+100

So, as said in the question, Thunar removal is not needed. (If it was removed, it can be re-installed; in Mint it's sudo apt install thunar mint-meta-xfce thunar thunar-archive-plugin thunar-media-tags-plugin thunar-volman xfce4-places-plugin.) The whole problem is related to identifying the Xfce desktop manager. I have received an answer to that question: ...
