Sendto on MATE and Cinnamon

Sendto on MATE and Cinnamon

Postby mongrol on Thu Jun 07, 2012 8:39 pm

Hi folks,
In a bid to further improve the WAF I'm considering switching my Debian Squeeze system to LMDE as I quite like Cinnamon and it's more wife friendly. The one feature I absolutely must have to appease the wife is a rightclick "send to" email function to be able to Email pictures out of Shotwell. I tried Linux Mint 13 (ubuntu) and it has this feature. Being a debian guy though I'd much rather run LMDE. I've tried both MATE and Cinnamon in the Live CD but after installing Caja-Sendto for MATE and Nautilus-sendto for Cinnamon I find they are both lacking the send-to Mail (THunderbird) feature. They both only have drives or OBEX available.

Does anyone have a sendto thunderbird available in LMDE?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

For MATE, simply install caja-sendto

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update && apt-get install caja-sendto


For Cinnamon, you can find a host of useful nautilus scripts here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NautilusScriptsHowto/SampleScripts

I know this thread is slightly old, but, you're right, it's completely missing. I tried using the "Send to..." in Shotwell, but it wanted nautilus sendto.

So I did this:

Code: Select all
sudo ln -s caja-sendto nautilus-sendto


And the only option I had was to send the photo to a drive volume. Perhaps the devs haven't finished this fork of nautilus-sendto just yet. Feature request?
