Nemo File Manager

Updated 21-Sep-2023

Nemo file manager is made for Cinnamon by the Linux Mint folks. However, this file browser works well on plain Debian. It is one of two apps from Mint that are really nice and worth installing, the other being pix.

The Nemo distribution is available from the Github repository. One functionality it doesn't have is a decent bulk rename / search and replace. This can be remedied using the Bulk Rename tool that comes with Thunar file manager.

Thunar Bulk Rename from Nemo

Install Thunar, then in Nemo on the menu edit > preferences > behaviour > bulk rename: thunar --bulk-rename and you can then select multiple files and right click -> rename
