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).
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
chmod +x ~/.local/share/nautilus/scripts/cool-script.sh.
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!
- You need to install some dependency to run this:
sudo apt-get install notify-osd sudo pip install subliminal
