nemo: Open a directory with a specific window size.
$ nemo --geometry=${600}x${400} ${path-to-directory}
try on your machine

This command is used to open the Nemo file manager with a specified window geometry and point it to a specific directory.

Let's break down the command:

  • nemo is the command used to launch the Nemo file manager.

  • --geometry=${600}x${400} is an option passed to the Nemo command. The --geometry flag is used to set the initial size and position of the Nemo window. In this case, the ${600} and ${400} are variables representing the width and height of the window respectively. These values can be modified to any desired dimensions.

  • ${path-to-directory} is another variable representing the path to a specific directory. This variable should be replaced with the actual path to the directory you want Nemo to open.

By executing this command, Nemo will open with a window of size 600x400 pixels, positioned according to your desktop environment's default settings, and display the contents of the specified directory.
