sick of nautilus opening target folder when moving files, switching to nemo

To switch to nemo file-manager, proceed as follows:

  1. Install packages:
    sudo apt-get install nemo nemo-fileroller
  2. Activate nemo:
    sudo xdg-mime default nemo.desktop inode/directory application/x-gnome-saved-search
    sudo gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background show-desktop-icons false
    sudo gsettings set org.nemo.desktop show-desktop-icons true
  3. Ensure nemo was activated properly:
    xdg-mime query default inode/directory
    nemo.desktop
