This works perfectly for me on all my machines, both i686 and x86_64.  After you
install the RPM, you need to open a terminal using Applications > System Tools >
Terminal, and run the following command:

killall -HUP nautilus

This command causes Nautilus to reload its configuration. It will also abort any
file move/copy operations, close any open file browsing windows, and reload your
desktop icons, so make sure you are finished with such work before you run the
above command.

You need to perform this step any time you add a Nautilus extension package,
such as nautilus-search-tool, nautilus-image-converter, etc.  This is true on
all Linux distributions that use Nautilus.  Hopefully Nautilus will have the
ability to reload its extensions dynamically in the future.

Please reply back with your findings.

OK, Matthias Clasen has graciously given me some hints in bug #426673 on how to
make this work again.  I may not get to it today for obvious reasons (q.v. date
of this message), but I will do what I can in the next day or two.  Thanks very
much for filing this; my Rawhide box was out of commission for the last few days
and I haven't built a new VM yet.
