Don't know if anyone can still reply to this, but I'm also trying to figure out how to manipulate the nemo context menu.

I've looked here:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Nemo

However, neither /usr/share/nemo/actions nor /home/stew/.local/share/nemo directories exist on my setup. I've tried adding them to add an additional menu item (trying the meld suggestion from that site), but it had no effect.

I'm using Nemo 1.1.2.

I do not think if Nemo 1.1.2 supports context actions as an extension.

http://segfault.linuxmint.com/2013/05/behind-the-curtain-nemo-actions/ - Check here.

If you wanted to do this in Nautilus or Nemo 1.6 you would need to program in C and write an “Extension”, which you would then compile and whatnot… this is tedious and it’s not what we had in mind for Nemo. So instead, we made Nemo understand actions, the way your menu understand menu items. An action is nothing else than a text file which tells Nemo what to do.


Suggestion: You may want to upgrade to Mint 16 Cinnamon as it has some nice features.
