View Full Version : [gnome] Play DVD (with menus) from right-click menu

September 8th, 2008, 01:07 AM
I installed nautilus-actions-config, which is working fine. But the thing I want to do is make it so when I right click on the DVD icon when I insert a video DVD with menus, it will play this in VLC.

Actually the command to do this is very easy, simply:
/usr/bin/vlc dvd://

I have gotten this to work when I right click on any arbitrary file or folder, it will play the DVD. But ideally, this option should only appear when I right click the DVD icon. Is this beyond the capabilities of nautilus-actions?

And maybe this is asking way too much, but it would be best if this only worked when a playable DVD were inserted, as opposed to a data DVD or a CD. Any ideas?

A bit more regarding this issue: I don't know of any way to make nautilus-actions add commands to the right-click menu for desktop icons that link to any drive. Is this just a functional limit? Is there any alternative or workaround? Can I do this by messing around with confusing conf files or anything?
