Possible Sources of the problem:
You’ve tried so far:
$ sudo apt-get install --uninstall nemo
~/.config/cinnamon-sessionand rebooted system.
$ nemo -qand clicked File Manager icon from the panel. (This method works for some and doesn’t for the others. But this solution requires you to do the same with every boot).
Frustrated already? Don’t be. Here is what works like a charm:
~/.config and find the culprit
monitors.xml file and delete. Now reboot. Voila!! See? Easy.
Now this is how it looks after the reboot! 🙂
Here is the Terminal solution for the insane 😉
$ cd .config $ ls -A $ rm monitors.xml
