It should work. I wrote a little script the other day that copies files to my Apache folder. Here it is:
As you can see, it also pops up an authorization box to ask for my password.
The next step was adding the path to this script to Nautilus Actions. Now I can copy by right-clicking.
Ok, I think I know the reason why. If LQ is / has a file server, I will definitely upload my screen shot to show that I really cannot find Nautilus Actions. However, I went to Google for it and realized that I would need to install a package called nautilus-actions. Ok, I bet that newbie will never find if there is no relavant computing experience at all. So I also install nautilus-gksu as well (I thought it can right click run as sudo etc like Vista "Run as Administrator", but it does not seemed so.)
So this was what i do:
Step 2: Using Terminal run chmod +x /home/samuel/.nautilus/jGrasp
Step 3: Install nautilus-action package, it is not installed by default.
In Menu Item & Action tab:
Label: Open with jGrasp
Tools hint: Opens java applications and source code with jGrasp
Parameters: (Leave it blank)
Filenames: java (Or .java, I tried both)
Match case: (Uncheck)
Mime types: Leave as defaults.
Appear if selection contains: "Only file"
Appear if selection has multiple files or folders: (Checked)
In Advance Conditions:
All check (Regardless where the file is saved, it can work. Is this the case, there is things like SMB, Local file etc. I think it means using whatever file sharing protcols, shall this script work. Am i wrong in my assumption here?)
So what is the problem here?
