Replace Nemo with Caja? (SOLVED)
« on: March 19, 2019, 01:31:58 pm »
Nemo only displays some of my photos in the Pictures folder; the others only appear as 'blanks'. I have never had the same problem with Caja so would like to replace Nemo with it. I tried 'Startup & Default Applications' but was unable to effect the change so I would be very grateful if someone could advise me how to do it.
Thank you.

To show all thumbnails in nemo....

Open Nemo, and go to:-

Edit > Preferences > Preview (tab)

And change:-

Only for files smaller than: 10MB (or some larger value)



You can certainly install Caja, but you CANNOT uninstall Nemo .. because the desktop, wallpaper changer, all the scripts that support right-click context menu additions, etc. would break.

Besides Nemo can do anything Caja can do .. and then some ;)
