    if you are referring to 'nautilus-actions' & on 11.10 then it was released broken & never fixed (inexcusable really

    It's fairly easy to build but I guess you could use the getdeb repo to install
    (I stopped paying attention to them when they closed off access to their source code/builds (or easily found access.

    my problem is that even if nautilus actions is installed (I tryed installing it by your link but it's the same) I can't find it (before i could, but anyway the program didn't work).

    in fact what i want to do is to paste a file with admin mode, (i'm trying to install Age of Mythology (with wine) in my netbook, which has not cd reader and i need to paste the cd2 folder in z

    Sometimes, when you can't find a program, you can go into Synaptic and search for a program, nautilus in this case, and click the "installed files" tab in the information part of the window at the bottom. A file tree of installed files will appear, and you will look for a file in /usr/bin which provides the path to the executable. Then you can open the file in a terminal like
    Code:
    /usr/bin/nautilus-actions-config-tool &
    The & at the end will allow the terminal to continue to be used, and keep the config-tool open even if you happen to shut down the terminal.

    I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, but it should give you an idea how to find the command to launch a program if you can't find it and the "which" or "whereis" commands aren't helping you.
