Mate Caja Scripts

Post by zaileion » Sun Mar 27, 2016 12:57 am

I've been looking for "Nautilus like Scripts" for Caja but no luck. I downloaded these scripts from various places over the internet and ported them for Caja.

1. Download the scripts and copy them into /home/xxxx/.config/caja/scripts (Change xxxx to your name.) (If you don't see the .config folder click "view" and select "show hidden files")

2. Right click on each script select "Properties"
3. Click permissions tab and make sure the box is checked next to "Allow Executing File as a Program"

Now whenever you right click something you will see a "Scripts" option in the contextual menu. just click the script of your choice and it will run.

*** If a script in your script folder does not show up in the contextual menu that's because you didn't complete step 3. ***

Here are the scripts: ... sp=sharing

Thank you. I'm curious about the Copy-To scripts. You create a variable named FILE but you don't seem to use it. How do these Copy-To scripts work with the $@ variable?
