Nautilus-actions --> edit desktop context menu

Post by noobcent » 2012/02/14 03:22:41

Hello All,

I am running Centos 5.7
and using nautilu-actions 1.4.1

I would like to know, how can I edit the right-click menu for the desktop?

I would like to add my own apps to the desktop right click menu. I have googled all day, and 'am still a bit confused. 0_o

Hi Hartman,

Thanks for info and link; I actually tried nautilus-actions and could not get it to work. :|

After a week of trying to make gnome happen, I gave up; and, went the xfce route. Everything works flawlessly! :D

I guess, it is beacuse I am running 5.7; instead; of a more recent centos release.


Thank you!
