    Question Nautilus Tweaks, Hacks, Scripts

    I love Ubutnu/GNOME but I find Nautilus a little lacking

    There are features in some KDE file managers that I would like to have, but not enough to make me switch to KDE. And Nautilus seems to be the best GNOME file manager there is.

    So- how do you tweak Nautilus to get the most out of it? What would you like to see added/changed?

    Here's a few tweaks I have found that I like to use:

    http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/add-cus...autilus-linux/
    http://software.flogisoft.com/cover-thumbnailer/en/

    I know there's a few others that I would have to include for sure if I wasn't using Linux Mint, but they are added by default. The main one being "open terminal here" in the context menu.

    What I would really like to see is a image/video preview pane.

    There are a number of scripts available at the link , just select Nautilus scripts. Google also returned a page of results.

    Almost forgot this one! I use it all the time to put music on my sons Nintendo DS. It adds a context menu option to convert audio formats.
