I've installed nemo as a file-manager but since version 2.0 got released, there is the problem with the desktop rendering, as described here.

How can I install the latest version of nemo before 2.0?

The version of Nemo presently packaged for Ubuntu 13.10 is 1.8.4. So you can simply try sudo apt-get install nemo. You need to remove the 2.0 version first.
