    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.

    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

    But the problem is, is that Gnome renamed Nautilus to "Files", so anything with the name nautilus won't install.

    Can't say I've seen that at all.
    The name "Files" is quite unimportant, just a line (Name=) in the nautilus .desktop. Can be whatever one wishes (I use "File Manager" here.
    The app is still nautilus, binary nautilus, ect.

    If for ex. this doesn't install then you've some local issue(s)
    sudo apt-get install nautilus-actions
