There are times when our work does not adapt to customizing Ubuntu. We could change the distribution, but we are not sure or do not want to change. Many times this customization can be changed as context menus from Ubuntu.
How to change context menus
First we turn to our Ubuntu Software Center and we look for the package "nautilus-actions"Once the package is found, we will install it and we will have the Action Tools program installed. Nautilus. We open it and the following window appears
To create a new menu in the contextual menu we just have to give "new item”And the tabs will be activated.
In the tab “Action" we edit "Context tag"With whatever name we want. That name is the one that will appear in the contextual menu. We also make sure that the option of "Show selection item from context menu".
Then we go to the tab "Command”And we look for the program that we want it to execute, such as Gimp o libreoffice. One thing, when we look for the program, the folder will open by default bin, many programs that we need will not be in that folder but in / usr / bin which is where the user packages are installed. Look there. We can also modify how to open the program through parameters, such as indicating if it opens in terminal or if we open with a browser without add-ons, etc ...
In the tab “Execution”We see the execution mode and we make sure that it is in normal mode. We leave the rest of the tabs as they are and save the item using the save icon next to the "New Item”. We go out and we already have our modified menu. Now we can add the programs we need to manage our files and speed up our work and performance with the distribution.
By the way, nautilus-actions It is marked as giving problems in the comments of the Ubuntu Software Center. I have tried it with Ubuntu 13.04 and it works very well the first time however I do not ensure that it works in previous versions. For older versions it is recommended that the source package be downloaded and compiled and installed. I hope it helps you
