Installing nautilus-terminal in Debian-testing
I am running Debian-testing with LXDE desktop and nautilus file manager. I want to install nautilus-terminal. It is not available in Debian-testing repositories. I tried to install it with following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:flozz/flozz
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nautilus-terminal

However, it does not work as there are errors on update:

Err wheezy/main Sources
  404  Not Found
Err wheezy/main i386 Packages
  404  Not Found

However, the source is available at . I downloaded it and tried to make a deb file from it using src2pkg application. Src2pkg, however, fails with error: "No INSTALL_LINE given".

I unpacked the nautilus-terminal_src.tar.gz file and there is an file there. I am not sure whether I should run it and install the nautilus-terminal, since it will not be through proper package management system of debian (apt-get) and I may have a difficulty in removing it if there are problems (although there is a remove function in the file, I am not sure how to use it). How should I proceed? Please guide, and thanks in advance.

LXDE+Nautilus is a curious combination - the slimmest DE and the fattest file manager - which, btw has tons of dependencies from Gnome, negating most of the benefits you get from using LXDE.

Anyway, that terminal thingie is written in python i believe and does not have to be compiled. I installed it when i had Gnome quite a while back.
As it isnt a deb file, you will have to remove it manually if needed be. It just might mess up Nautilus as plugins like this sometimes make it crash more often.

The file has following main functions:

So can I give commands "./ _run_dep" to check dependencies, "./ _install" to install and "./ _remove" to remove it later, if required?

The command was "./ -h" which gives different options (install, remove etc). It installed all right. I could also install from ppa with "oneiric" instead of "testing" as distribution.

However, with both methods, though the terminal is there in nautilus, it is not changing its working directory with selection of different directory in the lower panel. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks.
