Where are you getting Cinnamon 3.8 and 4.0 package builds for Stretch, anyway? Those aren't in stretch-backports, and I think you should provide this critical information if going outside Debian or mixing Debian releases for them.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Clipgrab 3.8.6, Hedgewars 1.0.0, PulseEffects 4.6.8, Telegram-desktop 1.8.15, Pale Moon 28.7.2, KeepassXC 2.5.1

ChamelionScales-all text that is possible to select in nemo is highlighted when i select it.?
All versions of nemo i have ever run havent had that problem.Its a basic OS function
,so i dont know what the "only possible till nemo4 " is all about.

Anyway at least nemo 4 has fixed it for you.How did you get it?

I built nemo from source.
I also downloaded some dependencies on https://pkgs.org

It required me to install many dependencies, overwriting already installed older versions so I know it's risky but I did it on a test machine and so far I didn't encounter any problem. I'll let you know if I do.

To my surprise, after upgrading to Debian 10.1, the issue was still there. I guess we'll have to wait another 2 years to get Nemo 4 in the repos of a stable Debian release.

QUICK & EASY FIX FOUND !!
Works on both Debian 9 and 10 (XFCE and Cinnamon editions):
Paste the following css code in ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css
Code: Select all
/* Things that can traditionally be controlled by the user theme, but that we *must*
 * have regardless, for a usable application.  A couple things that we cannot do without. */

/* Inactive F3 pane shading */

.nemo-window .nemo-inactive-pane .view, .nemo-window .nemo-inactive-pane iconview {
    background-color: @theme_unfocused_bg_color;
}

/* Rename box styling in the icon view. */

.nemo-window .nemo-window-pane widget.entry {
    border: 1px solid;
    border-radius: 3px;
    color: @theme_fg_color;
    border-color: @theme_selected_bg_color;
    background-color: @theme_bg_color;
}

.nemo-window .nemo-window-pane widget.entry:selected {
    border: 1px solid;
    border-radius: 3px;
    color: @theme_selected_fg_color;
    border-color: @theme_selected_bg_color;
    background-color: @theme_selected_bg_color;
}

Then log out and back in.
You should now see the highlighted text when renaming a file while in Icon View mode.
