Re: Alternative to Gnome Schedule? (Solved)

Tired to compile from source in 18.04, no luck missing too many pieces.

But the .deb file above works in 18.04/19.1!! Locations slightly different

Code: Select all

Icon=/usr/local/share/pixmaps/gnome-schedule/gnome-schedule.svg
Exec=/usr/local/bin/gnome-schedule

Re: How to Add a `Paste Link Here` Nemo Action

most definitely. Maybe I'll just make a github repo and you can embed, fork or reference that.

I probably end up making a few improvements and some error checking like checking to make sure the clipboard is holding a valid file/directory to link and the paste target is also a valid directory.

Re: [SOLVED] Creating shortcuts

Came up with a couple nemo actions and bash scripts that adds 'Link to Clipboard' and 'Paste Link Here' now it's simple to make links from one directory to another quickly (no having to move them and remove 'Link to')

Re: Running pkexec in terminal works but not in Alt-F2

if you ended up here because 19.1 broke all your launchers that used gksu then this answer provided above and repeated here was the best/simpliest solution (for me). The new launcher flags gksu and doesn't allow you to preface any command with it. But this `gksudo` or whatever you want to call it is...
