Making my script

Postby keenan » Tue Oct 30, 2007 3:42 pm

ok, i'm totaly new to linux and scripting so i need some help....
i was using kubuntu for few weeks and i really liked the 'Right Click -> Actions -> Send using bluetooth' so i want to make a script that would send the file i right clicked with the mouse to my cellphone.... this is what i came up with....

#!/bin/bash
# W610

sudo gnome-obex-send -d 00:1B:59:61:02:8A $NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_SELECTED_FILE_PATHS

exit 0


now, this works as long as the directory where the file is (or the file) has no spaces.... if i try to send some pic from '/home/darko/My Pictures' gnome-obex-send says something like 'can't find file /home/darko/My'

so, my question is how to make it work with the spaces
i know where to put script and how to make it executable, i just need the help with code....

thx,
darko.

Yeah, I'd try with quoted variables too.

Clem, you and I - we're very much alike, don't you think?

Do you do it gay-wise?

i tried with the quotes before this post, but it didn't work either.... even if this post says it should.. maybe i've done smth wrong....
but then i found this page where it's done using nautilus actions, so if anybody else needs this...it works... :P
