Thread: Nautilus Actions Extra on Ubuntu 13.04

    Nautilus Actions Extra on Ubuntu 13.04

    Hi guys!
    I installed Ubuntu 13.04 yesterday and it is really great. It has fixed a lot of problems that I had with Unity, runs fast and all. The only problem that I have with it is Nautilus 3.6, now renamed Files. In Ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10 you could install "Nautilus Actions Extra" too add a lot of options that you find in Dolphin. Is there any way to add that functionality to Ubuntu 13.04? Thanks.

    Thanks, however that doesn't help me because I added the PPA but it won't even install. I do
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install nautilus-actions-extra
    and it just gives me a long list or errors. I guess it's because Nautilus isn't installed anymore. It's "Files". Is there another way to install it?

    I followed the instructions on this page:

    Yeah, I got the same error so I tried just installing the individual scripts from the nae ppa
    to see if that worked.

    They install but don't show.


    So I just installed the nautilus-open-terminal package from the default universe ppa.
    Need to make a bug report.

    Well not only a bug report, but we should try to get Canonical to put this in the default installation. Right now I am really looking at openSUSE 12.3, and Ubuntu 13.04. If we could get this working, then I will probably switch to Ubuntu 13.04.

    It's probably got more to do with what the gnome developers vision for nautilus is, than Canonical.
    Works in 12.04 and 12.10.

    If you take a look on the ppa the so-called raring packages were auto built on 11/17 & are the exact same as the quantal ones.
    Putting aside any nautilus changes since then python-nautilus has changed so no way those packages will work as is in 13.04

    Maybe they'll be redone as possible closer or at 13.04 release, no clue

    edit: also possible even if redone still won't work. There are some ex. extensions in the new python-nautilus. Trying one as per included instructions results in same error seen with ppa ext.'s -

    ERROR:root:code for hash md5 was not found.
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/hashlib.py", line 139, in <module>
    globals()[__func_name] = __get_hash(__func_name)
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/hashlib.py", line 91, in __get_builtin_constructor
    raise ValueError('unsupported hash type ' + name)
    ValueError: unsupported hash type md5
    ERROR:root:code for hash sha1 was not found.
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    And so on...& on

    All well over my head so don't know if the current python-nautilus is flawed or not

    Ubuntu 13.04 is wonderful, but Nautilus 3.6 is way over simplified. If anybody knows any way to to get "nautilus-actions-extra" to work on Ubuntu 13.04 would be much appreciated. Or if not that specific package, something similar.

    That would depend on what you want out of nautilus-actions-extra.

    I'm sure nautilus-actions can do some of them
