Nautilus is the default file manager in Ubuntu Gnome.

Now they just call it Gnome Files but still use nautilus name in settings and config files etc.
Forget about this naming debate or which desktop environment is better?
(it’s gnome btw but nvm).

Nautilus Script

The one thing where Linux haven’t disappointed us, is that there is always scope of tweaking our OS. Now the cool thing with nautilus scripts is, we can customize things/operation we can do with right click of mouse.

All you need to do is:

  • write a cool script.
  • save it as ~/.local/share/nautilus/scripts/ .
  • chmod +x ~/.local/share/nautilus/scripts/ .

You can automate lot of stuff like sending selected file as an email attachment or something fun like downloading subtitle of selected movie file(s).
we’ll do the latter one!

The Script

  • You need to install some dependency to run this:
    sudo apt-get install notify-osd
    sudo pip install subliminal
