Nemo for Ubuntu

PPA description

Designed with unity in mind, probably would work ok with gnome-shell though I don't use gnome-shell so no support..
Make sure to upgrade libgnome-desktop-3-12 to ppa's version if already installed..

To make the default file manager

xdg-mime default nemo.desktop inode/directory application/x-gnome-saved-search

To handle the desktop just disable nautilus doing so & reboot or log out

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background show-desktop-icons false

An improved compiz available on request if getting cursor run on in unity from icon quicklists

The mediainfo-tab plugih is accessed thru r. click > properties

For whatever reason apt and or synaptic doesn't handle Label change of ppa well. If having issue just open Software & Updates > Other Software.
Uncheck the ppa, click close and refresh sources.
Then again open Software & Updates > Other Software, enable the ppa, click close and refresh sources, all should be well.
If still an issue after above run sudo apt update, you'll be prompted for accept change.
Sorry for any inconvenience..
