(Solved) Nautilus scripts Menu

I am trying to create the nautilus scripts menu. But for the life of me the bugger wont go. I was following the directions fromG-scripts but its not working . I extracted the scripts to /home/flebber/.gnome/nautilus-scripts/ and then tried to make the directory executable and when that didnīt work I tried making just one file executable.

Hereīs what I did
[root@localhost flebber]# chmod u+x /home/flebber/.gnome/nautilus-scripts/
[root@localhost flebber]# chmod u+x /home/flebber/.gnome/nautilus-scripts
[root@localhost flebber]# exit
[flebber@localhost ~]$ chmod u+x /home/flebber/.gnome/nautilus-scripts
Even tried it with a+x
[flebber@localhost ~]$ chmod a+x /home/flebber/.gnome/nautilus-scripts/
[flebber@localhost ~]$ chmod a+x /home/flebber/.gnome/nautilus-scripts
[flebber@localhost ~]$ su
[root@localhost flebber]# chmod a+x /home/flebber/.gnome/nautilus-scripts
[root@localhost flebber]# chmod a+x /home/flebber/.gnome/nautilus-scripts/
My end goal was to create a script that would allow to copy or move a file to any other directory on the computer as in Konqueror right click menu.

Any ideas where I am going wrong in making the scripts executable and the scripts menu showing up in natilus..

The how-to states ~/.gnome/nautilus-scripts itīs actually ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts .
