How to quickly mark files?
 
Using a GUI file browser, I would like to be able to mark files with an emblem or something similar as quickly as possible, with a single click. I'm currently using Gnome Nautilus in my Ubuntu 10.04, which doesn't seem to offer the functionality. I'm not keen on trying the extension Nautilus-Actions as it doesn't seem to be open source. I've set up some scripts though, but accessing them through the pop-up submenu is just clunky enough to still have me searching for a faster solution. Does a file browser exist that would let me set up a toolbar button for marking files? Or a button for launching scripts, which would amount to the same thing.

Oh never mind.. I have found out on the Ubuntu Launchpad that Nautilus-Actions is actually open source, downloaded it, and it does what I wanted. I can run scripts from the main popup menu, fast and easy. Solved!

Then mark the thread as Solved (in Thread Tools).
