Thanks for the info! Before your post I actually discovered nautilus-actions. I think it is probably just a gui for putting scripts in the ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts directory!
Do you know what user the scripts run as? Is it the user who is logged in?
I have a script that resizes and uplaods pictures to a web server. It works perfectly when I run it from the command line but doesn't work through the menu, any idea where the error messages go? Can't find them in /var/log/messages.
Sorry for all the question!
Here is my script, it resizes the files ok but then when it tries to execute ./ftp.pl it fails.
for FILE in $*
convert $FILE -resize 384x $FILE
if [ $OUT -eq 0 ];then
zenity --info --info-text "Files Uploaded!"
zenity --info --info-text "Failed for some reason!"
