Nautilus-actions : A series of examples of actions on Ubuntu forum

I've just found a Howto posted quite a long time ago by Killerkiwi on ubuntuforum.org which proposed a lots of example of use of Nautilus-actions.

Here is a non exhaustive list of actions proposed :

  • Send Attachment Email via Thunderbird
  • Search for files
  • Play in Beep Media Player
  • Open Root Terminal
  • Send to Email
  • Open In Konqueror
  • Install Deb
  • ...

And thanks to all these ubuntu users for supporting Nautilus-actions :)

Nautilus-actions : Proposal for inclusion in Gnome 2.14

Since I've received many positive comments about Nautilus-actions when I first announced it on GnomeDesktop.org and on this site, I've decided to officially proposed it for inclusion in the future release of Gnome.

You can follow the process in the Gnome wiki page of Gnome 2.14.

Aside from some little known problems, it has been quite well accepted.

Note that it is just a proposal, Nautilus-actions is not yet officially part of Gnome. The final decision will be taken during the Feature and Module Freeze on 18th of January according to the official schedule.

Nautilus Actions : Two new articles about the project on the net

I've found some new interresting articles on two blogs which describe two ways of using Nautilus-actions.

Nautilus Actions : New release available (V0.99)

A pre-release of the future 1.0 version of Nautilus-actions is available : V0.99, for your testing pleasure :).

This version has been completely refactored for a big part of it, to make it more integrated into the Gnome Desktop.
In particular, NACT, the configuration tool, has been totally recoded in C instead of python, in order to share the common configuration code.
The configuration is now stored in GConf, the Gnome official configuration database to improve performance and integration.

Problems with comment posting and user login on GrumZ.Net fixed

If you try to post a comment or create an account or try to log in in the past few days, you have probably encountered some problems and didn't manage to do anything.

This was a bug generated by the "Clean URLs" settings that was messing up the POST vars. The result was that no data was sent from your form post. So I disable this feature until I found a better work around to this problem. I prefer that you can post comment to give me your feedback than google can index my pages correctly :)

Another problem was about email sending when you create an account. In fact, my config was bad and no email was sent. Now it works so if you have created an account in the past few days, you can ask for a new password by following the link in the login box in the right panel.

Sorry for all the inconvenience,

GrumZ, the webmaster
