Papercuts: Nemo, a usable file maneger for Ubuntu

Update: Nemo is in the default repositories, you do not need to add the ppa to use it. Just type this in the terminal: sudo apt-get install nemo

Nemo is actually the file manger of Linux Mint's Cinnamon desktop. It is way better than the default file manager of the latest Ubuntu version, so here is how to install it:

Although it is available in the default repositories, some features like "Extract here" is not available. I's better to add with it's PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/nemo
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nemo nemo-fileroller nemo-dropbox nemo-share
