O' kind and ever helpful Wizards, Please help me find a current and stable version of Nemo for Ubuntu 20.04 Mate 1.24.0
It seems there are Mate users looking for a way to do this, so any help would be useful for others. Nemo has several great features completely missing from Caja so every time I try to use it, disappointment soon follows. The version in the Software (snap) app is old (4.x) and crash prone.
sudo apt install nemo
But it's the same 4.x version.
I've looked at Use Nemo instead of Caja - #26 by computerguy and the less relevant For Nemo users; How to install Nemo Preview (broken, help!) here on the Mate Community. As with these links and others out on the wild web like https://www.linuxuprising.com/2018/07/how-to-replace-nautilus-with-nemo-file.html all seem to be at least two years outdated, compared with
nemo/changelog at master · linuxmint/nemo · GitHub (and that one got me even more keen on getting the latest Mate-compatible version of Nemo). There's not much I miss from MacOS, but Preview right in your files app is really nice!
My impression is that Ubuntu and/or Mate might have innate problems with Nemo, so maybe 4.x is the latest version that will work? Am I doomed to live with the crashes for now, or does someone here have a safe source to get a stable newer or latest version installed on Mate 20.04? Maybe things would be better if I were to leave the LTS 20.04 and go with the current stable Ubu-Mate? Anyone??
