    Default Nemo as default File Manager?

    Hallo everyone,

    I also use Nemo as my File Manager.

    How can I set Nemo as my standard (Default) File Manager ?

    Happy Holidays!

    I assume you want to do that in a desktop environment that hasn't Nemo as default file manager. You only failed to identify which desktop environment you use.

    I have no idea if somebody knows. And I am no Gnome user.

    But you made of course a false start by not even mentioning the word Gnome in your thread's title. The title is the main thing to draw the attention of people. When it doesn't have the keywords, you advertising is not that good.

    I haven't used gnome in some time and I get the gtk file managers mixed up
    was nemo mate or cinamon's file manager?
    it doesn't matter this is the basic procedure to set nemo as the preferred file manager
    install Dconf Editor (gconf has been deprisiated)
    https://software.opensuse.org/package/dconf-editor
    Code:
    zypper in dconf-editor
    with dconf-editor
    disable nautilus desktop integration
    Code:
    org.gnome.desktop.background show-desktop-icons
    enable nemo's desktop integration
    by changing
    Code:
    org.nemo.desktop show-desktop-icons

    Thanks for your suggestion I_A .
    I am not very good with that dconf-editor.

    It helped partially but . . .

    It's not the end of the world.

    It first occured to me when I put in a DVD or plugged in a USB drive, it always directed me to my old file manager.
    Some distros or desktops may be more flexible with this.
    OK,
    I wish you all a

    HAPPY 2017
