Edit konqueror feature to INsert in Nautilus


I have just recently changed from a Kde Desktop to Gnome. I am missing one feature from Konqueror that doesnīt exist in Nautilus.

The feature I am after is that in Konqueror the right click menu offers the choice to Move or Copy the selected file to an directory on the computer. This I much want in Nautilus.

My question is this, where is the source for Konqueror so I can find the code they used for this feature and what is the best way to insert this into Nautilus to create the feature.

Any pieces of the puzzle wanted please.

Konqueror is a part of KDE. Everything you need should be at or

Nautilus is here:

I'm not familiar with the architecture on either of these, however there appears to be ample docs on all the web sites.

I would suggest taking a look that the sites and possibly contacting one of the authors or making a feature suggestion. I say go for it!

Here's a white paper on Nautilus:

I don't know what they use on Gnome but KDevelop is awesome.
