Send to at right click....

Postby ibm450 on Sun Oct 11, 2009 11:53 pm

Is it possible to create a script or is there a addon where you can right click a file, folder, pic or what ever you choose and have an option in the right click menu to send it to, say, your documents, pictures folders

Nautilus send-to extension...


cheers for the link, but ive already installed anything to do with send-to for nautilus, but the web-page you suggested didnt help with my query...how to..

im using the default file browser that came with LM, so i wouldnt know if its nautilus or something else. is there a link that perhaps explains how to use these extensions in a much easier more friendly way?

cheers in advance

Linux mint 7 (gloria) main edition 32bit (Gnome desktop)
--for the Gnome desktop, the default file browser/manager is nautilus

Code: Select all
Copy To
Place the following code in a new file, give it a filename of copyto and make it executable with chmod a+x copyto. Move the new file to the ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/ directory, open nautilus and you'll find a new right-click menu item entitled "Scripts" with a submenu that has an item that quickly copies a file to any directory you desire.
 Move To

--first the discussion

    nautilus-send-to
    This extension provides a simple way to send a file or folder to another using email, instant messaging, or Bluetooth.
Obviously the standard extension for nautilus; which handles the desktop as well as the file structure of the system; isn't up to the task
--its a custom job.

ibm450: if you enable the sidebar (View > Sidebar) you can just drag and drop the folder/files from the main pane to the bookmarks on the sidepane, which by default are Docs, Pics etc. You can customise the bookmarks by using the Bookmarks menu. There's no need to modify the send-to script.
