What is the correct PPA for Nemo?

I have just changed my file manager in Ubuntu 20.04 from Nautilus to Nemo but the PPA (ppa:embrosyn/cinnamon) I have for it has an 404 error for one of the links in it and doesn’t finish adding it in.
I was wondering if anybody knew the right PPA? I also reinstalled Nemo using Synaptic Package Manager so do I need a PPA at all or will that be alright?

Thanks in advance:)

There is no such thing as a "correct PPA". PPA is a personal package archive created by some user. You install software from PPA’s at your own risk.

If you installed nemo from Ubuntu official repositories, there is no reason to look for some PPA.

This add the repository Linux Mint uses.

echo "deb http://packages.linuxmint.com una main upstream import backport" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/linux-mint.list  
gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys A6616109451BBBF2
gpg --export A6616109451BBBF2 | sudo tee /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/linux-mint.gpg > /dev/null
sudo apt install nemo nemo-compare nemo-fileroller

You can also use

gpg --export --armor A6616109451BBBF2 | sudo tee /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/linux-mint.asc > /dev/null

instead of

gpg --export A6616109451BBBF2 | sudo tee /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/linux-mint.gpg > /dev/null
