There are times when our work does not fit the customization of Ubuntu. We could change distribution, but we’re not sure or we don’t want to change. Many times this customization can be changed as the context menus of Ubuntu.
How to change context menus
First we go to ours Ubuntu Software Center and we look for the package “nautilus-actions“, Once we have found the package we will install it and we will already have the Action Tools program installed Nautilus. We opened it and the following window appears
To create a new menu in the context menu we just have to “new item“And the tabs will be activated.
In the tab “action “ we edited “Context label“With the name we want. This name is what will appear in the context menu. We also make sure that the option is checked”Displays the context menu selection item“.
Then we go to the tab “command“And we’re looking for the program we want it to run like now Gimp o LibreOffice. One thing, when we search for the program the folder will open by default bin, Many programs we need will not be in this folder but in / Usr / bin which is where user packages are installed. Look there. We can also modify how to open the program using parameters, such as indicating whether it opens in terminal or if we open with a browser without add-ons, etc …
In the tab “execution“We see the execution mode and make sure it’s in normal mode. We leave the rest of the tabs as they are and save the item using the save icon next to the”Item New“We went out and we already have our menu modified. Now we can add the programs we need to manage our files and speed up our work and performance with the distribution.
By the way, Nautilus-actions is marked as giving problems in the comments of the Ubuntu Software Center. I’ve tried it with Ubuntu 13.04 and it works great and at first but I don’t guarantee it will work on earlier versions. For earlier versions it is recommended that the source package be downloaded and compiled and installed. I hope it helps you
