Description of problem:
In prior versions of Nautilus there was a Scripts choice when
right clicking a file, allowing one to run a script on the file, or
open the Scripts folder for creating scripts.
It seems gone in FC2, please reintroduce.
(I tried creating a script in ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts , but ..
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Nautilus
2. Right click a file
Actual Results: No scripts.
Expected Results: Expect to have a Scripts choice.
Nautilus even documents this.
I have a variation on this. I put a shell script in
.gnome2/nautilus-scripts and it is there and I can use it.
I go to the scripts menu after right-clicking and select open scripts
menu. It give me the instructional message and opens the scripts
folder. I associate the script with gvim so I can edit it. I open it
in gvim. Now the script menu won't show up after right clicking.
I killed off gvim and closed all the scripts folders. The scripts
menu still doesn't appear.
I went to files and programs and removed association of gvim to the
shell script. Now the scripts menu is back.
This bug is also in Gnome bugzilla #142496.
A workaround is given.
According to the upstream bug this is fixed in a version we have in
fc3 test releases. Closing.
