Nautilus - "Copy to.."

Postby Hjess on Sun Jul 20, 2008 5:53 pm

Hi.

I'm not really into customize gnome etc.. but something anyones me a little.

When I've open a sftp session in Nautilus, and right click on a folder .. is it possible to make a "Copy folder to.." and better make some default folders to copy to?

Bonus info if possible - a HOWTO or similar to customize to menu when I've right click? (I've think i saw in XFCE screens shots its possible to even have multiple programs - like KDE).

I'm running Elyssa/Gnome.

Hi there Hjess,

I'm not exactly sure what you are asking; I sense that maybe English is not your first language.

Nautilus allows 'drag and drop' which by default is "copy to.."

Another alternative would be to install something like "Gnome Commander" which is a two pane file manager similar to Windows Commander program under Windows (it is now called Total Commander).

This Gnome Commander two pane file manager is flexible and allows you simple ways to manage your files. It is in the Mint Software Portal.

I hope this helps

Regards
John

Or just load up the scripts-manager and then get some scripts from here

You're right on its not my first language ;-) - But "funny" is that I've use English every day.. (sitting as a Electrical Consultant/Coordinator between Denmark and India)

Well normally I've use "mc" and used it like forever, but now I was just wondering if it was possible to change to menu when I right click on a item. Sorry to say but very similar to what you do i Windows when you hit "Send to.."

Cool site! - Didt know that one.

Just wondering - is it "just" a bunch of scripts, or howto implement them into gnome?

It's a bunch of scripts you put into the gnome scripts directory.

nautilus-scripts.tar.gz (68k) You can download all of the scripts on this site at once in a tar.gz archive. To use, just do "tar -xvzf nautilus-scripts.tar.gz" or use one of the archive extraction scripts above and move the ones you want into ~/.gnome/nautilus-scripts. Even better, they are already organized hierarchically in a nautilus-scripts directory, so you can just extract the entire archive into ~/.gnome and you are good to go.

This is taken from the webpage

What don't you understand ?

Ok, sorted. The archive should be extracted to ~/.gnome2 and not ~/.gnome. The instructions on the webpage are not for Mint. Sorry I did not pick up on this earlier. :?
