You didn't catch my question,
I know how to install Nemo via terminal.
Actually, I have it on my system right now, but it's version 4.4.2, The latest version is 5, How can I install version 5 or 4.4.8

4.4.2 is the latest version available in the Ubuntu repository. I ran a Google search to find out if I could find a later version, like version 5, I did, but for other distros.

Ubuntu repo's are known to be quite slow at updating their software repo's. But I can't recommend installing software for other distro's, because it could break your system.

Thank you,
The 4.4.2 version is fine by me, but I guess it has a bug, I reviewed somewhere on GitHub, I can't change the icon view size all in batch, I have to change them level by level and this is so annoying.
Do you have any idea?

I am using Nemo 5.0.


Is it fully compatible with Zorin OS??
By the way, I already downloaded this package, but I got an error while installing, Something about cinnamon-desktop dependency.
A little help please

Yes, I have been using it since Zorin OS 16 Alpha.

Let's try from Repository:

sudo -i


Navigate to /etc/apt/sources.list

Paste this line at the bottom and save the file but do not close it:
deb uma main upstream import backport

Open terminal and run

sudo apt install -y nemo

Once installed, in the sources.list file that is still open; remove the repository you just added (This is important. Further updates from the testing repo may cause breakage).


Sorry to ask a question regarding to file manager...

Is there any FM that i can copy the path? I mean double click and give me a full path...i remember that one distro i use have this "options"

I know that Nemo and thunar both do, by clicking the Location Button.

To do so in Nautilus...


I just tried. I have no idea how to do so in Gnome nautilus.

Humm and Zorin use files to FM?

So i can install two different file mangers without any problem'?


I got it...using FM default Zorin

Ctrl + L show the path


Yes, you can install most file managers without any problem. But QT based FM's, like Dolphin, won't look right on Zorin OS.


I don't like the this one from zorin and ubuntu (nemo).


Well I'm using Dolphin with the konsole (because of the command line) installed since zorin15.3 because I like working with split screens. The one thing that bothers me about Nemo is the notification when I'm transfering files. Now with Zorin16 this problem is solved in Dolphin.

Can you please try:

And remove the deb uma main upstream import backport from the sources.list

Once done, then

sudo apt install -y nemo
