Hello, everyone. I'm visiting over from the Ubuntu forums
, and I'd like to share this quick tutorial with all of you.
Have you ever found yourself dealing with editing several files, and sighing at having to type out different "gedit" or "vi" commands in the terminal?
If I correctly described an experience that you've had, the following tutorial is a must. My tutorial allows you to add "Open with gedit" to the Right-click menu, making it easy to gedit anything!
First, we need to run this command in the terminal, making the file that will hold our script:
gedit ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/Open\ with\ gedit
Now, a blank document in the text editor should open. Copy and paste these contents:
# Nautilus script -> open gedit
while [ $# -gt 0 ]
files=`echo "$1″ | sed 's/ /\?/g'`
Now click save, and close the text editor.
Finally, we need to make the previous script executable. So let's run this command:
chmod u+x ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/Open\ with\ gedit
And that's it! Open up the file browser, and right-click on any file to test it out!
I hope I've helped to make someone's life a lot easier. Enjoy, everyone.
