Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Quick update for Ubuntu Nemo users: Today I added three new Nemo extensions from the Linux Mint Nemo Extensions GitHub to the WebUpd8 Nemo PPA (Nemo with Unity patches):
  • Nemo Emblems - add file or folder emblems;
  • Nemo Image Converter - allows you to quickly resize or rotate images (forked from Nautilus Image Converter);
  • Nemo Filename Repairer - an extension that can be used to repair filenames which use wrong encoding in Nemo.

Below you can see screenshots with these Nemo extensions in action:

Install Nemo Emblems, Image Converter and Filename Repairer in Ubuntu 14.04

Reminder: the WebUpd8 Nemo PPA should not be used by Linux Mint / Cinnamon users! Nemo from this PPA uses various Unity patches (it should work with Unity, GNOME Shell, Xfce, etc. but not with Cinnamon!) that make it incompatible with Cinnamon.

To install Nemo Emblems, Image Converter and Filename Repairer extensions in Ubuntu 14.04, use the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/nemo
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nemo-emblems nemo-filename-repairer nemo-folder-color nemo-image-converter

Once installed, restart Nemo using the following command:
nemo -q
Important: some Nemo extensions might not work if you don't fix python-nemo as explained under step 4 from HERE.
