Add scripts to nautilus 3

How to Install Nautilus Actions Extra

To install the script pack you need to add the developer’s PPA to your Software Sources. There are two ways to do this, the quickest of which is to open a Terminal and enter the following two lines: -

  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dr3mro/nautilus-actions-extra
  • sudo apt-get install nautilus-actions-extra

After installation you will need to log out and back in for the changes to take effect. Alternatively you can press ALT+F2 and enter ‘nautilus -q’ to restart Nautilus.

How to add Emblems to files and folders

To badge files or folders with icons you need to right-click on the file or folder you want to add an emblem to and choose Advanced Actions > Emblemize2 from the right-click menu.
