Everything I find tells me to use the PPA, which isn't possible for me atm since I don't yet have internet (and likely won't for a while) and this rooted phone can't teather or hotspot including through ADB.

So I need to download the packages/dependencies and transfer them to my PC to install them...

Where would I be able to find the packages I'm looking for??

You may try this "Nemo 3 file manager for Ubuntu" PPA by “WebUpd8” team. According to the PPA description:

Nemo file manager patched for Unity (with no Cinnamon dependencies except cinnamon-l10n for translations). Only use this PPA in Ubuntu. Don't use it in Linux Mint or if you use Cinnamon!

(emphasis mine)

You may add this PPA by running

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/nemo3

or browse for packages here.

Well you do need internet to download anything ...

That is weird: using a phone as a hotspot is always possible. It is a core feature of modern phones. Does not require a rooted phone either.


I would use a live usb session to create a Linux system. Use that to boot from it on a system that has internet, then download and install Nemo FM and then copy the files from /var/cache/apt/archives/ to your other system.

  • ` using a phone as a hotspot is always possible. It is a core feature of modern phones.` Tell that to Straight Talk, I wish that were the case with their phones. If I had bought a phone with no service and applied for Straight Talk, I'd be fine. (it's absolute BS) – Tcll Oct 15 '17 at 21:18
  • also, that's the nemo with the cinnamon dependencies. – Tcll Oct 15 '17 at 21:20
