nemo [options] URIs...

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the nemo command.

Nemo is the file manager for the Cinnamon desktop.

OPTIONS

Nemo follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.

-g
--geometry=GEOMETRY

Create the initial window with the given geometry.

-t
--tabs

Open URIs in tabs.

--existing-window

Open URIs in an existing window.

-n
--no-default-window

Only create windows for explicitly specified URIs.

--fix-cache

Repair the user thumbnail cache - this can be useful if you're having trouble with file thumbnails. Must be run as root.

--debug

Enable debugging code. Example usage: 'NEMO_DEBUG=Actions nemo --debug'. Use NEMO_DEBUG=all for more topics.

-q
--quit

Quit Nemo.

--help

Show a summary of options.

--version

Show Nemo's version.

Other standard GNOME options not listed here are also supported.

NOTE ON THE ROOT USER

Ordinarily, nemo and nemo-desktop treat being run as the root user as special, with certain restrictions and UI changes. This behavior can be bypassed via a gsettings key. You can use the following command to enable/disable this override:

gsettings set org.nemo.preferences treat-root-as-normal true|false
