I agree.
It should be installed by default...

I also managed to get it working on Mint 15 (MATE) 64bit
I used sources from caja-actions 1.6.2

While installing, I created a .deb using "checkinstall" (
You can grab it here: (64bit only)

The .deb installs/uninstalls fine on my system (not tested on any other installations)
Hope it helps someone out...

I would like caja-actions pre-installed with LM 17.

Currently using LM 9 LTS since 2011. I rely heavily on nautilus-actions, so in preparation for LM 17 LTS, I decided to build caja-actions just to see how it goes.

* Build system: LM 13 MATE 32-bit w/ backports and latest updates
* Source code: caja-actions 1.7.1 downloaded from here:

It seems to work fine. Definitely more added features and options than what I'm used to with nautilus-actions on LM 9.

I created a 32-bit .deb using "checkinstall" but nowhere to post.

On a new installation of Mint 17 Mate, I downloaded the 64 bit deb package posted by AvanOsch above, and it installed OK.
Caja Actions Configuration Tool could be run from the command line, as caja-actions-config-tool, and it picked up my old Nautilus Actions files (and made complete sense of them) without the need for me to import them.
However, nothing appeared in Caja. After much messing around, I found that the code files for the Caja Actions
extension had been installed in a directory different from all other Caja extensions. Once I copied them over to the "right" directory, everything worked fine:

cd /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/caja/extensions-2.0/

sudo cp -p /usr/lib/caja/extensions-2.0/libcaja-actions-* .
