Removing and unwanted item from caja's context menu

Postby thorx89 » Sun Feb 17, 2013 9:24 am

Hi,
I don't know how, but I somehow ended up with an 'alien' item in my caja's context menu.
It consists of a submenu named Foox that contains and item called Barxx.
Clicking on it does nothing (no process gets run, even).

Any ideas on how it got there and how to get rid of it?

Additional info: neither of the two strings can be found in neither the caja binary nor mateconf-editor; nautilus doesn't have it

I also have noticed this context menu recently in Caja on Mint 13, and am interested in removing it.

Agree. Same thing here. Perhaps we should post this as a bug, but I don't know how to begin to do that either. :?

I know this is an old thread but I just got this "issue"
Found the problem, it is because insync has been instaleld.

Code: Select all

  def get_background_items(self, window, file):
    ## when is this called?
    print('get get_background_items', file)
    top_menuitem = caja.MenuItem('ExampleMenuProvider::Foo', 'Foox', '')
    submenu = caja.Menu()
    top_menuitem.set_submenu(submenu)
    sub_menuitem = caja.MenuItem('ExampleMenuProvider::Bar', 'Barxx', '')
    submenu.append_item(sub_menuitem)
    return top_menuitem


You can remove the whole section.
This is part of insync-caja-plugin.py.
Doesn't do anything and is just a nuciance.
