This is great!
« on: October 15, 2019, 12:13:53 pm »
As I said in another thread, I'm recently into Peppermint 10 from Ubuntu 14.04, and here are a few things I've discovered that I really like.  (I don't know whether they are actual differences from current Ubuntu.  They're just new to me.) 8)

I operate the "normal" way, using sudo instead of loggin in as root.  If I need to make any changes in directories I don't have permissions for, I can right-click in nemo and select "Open as Root", enter my password, and it will elevate my privileges just like using sudo. 

If I have a directory open in nemo and I want to work in the terminal in that directory, I can right-click and grab an option that does that.

If I enter a command that requires elevated privileges and forget to use sudo, I'm prompted for my password.

Glad to hear you're enjoying your Peppermint experience :)

BTW:-

If I have a directory open in nemo and I want to work in the terminal in that directory, I can right-click and grab an option that does that.

Another option is the Nemo F4 accelerator (keybinding), which will open a terminal in the current Nemo directory.

I love Nemo .. in fact I'm glad I 'found' it (okay bad joke) :)
