Thunar Custom Actions
« on: May 11, 2011, 12:00:26 am »

ucastall-0.0.1-i586-vl70
Please help me test this custom package. for vl7.0 and let me know how it works for you.

I've made a simple script which will install thunar custom actions. When installed simply click on the "StdCustomActions" icon in the accessories menu and a robust selection of custom actions will be installed for use in the thunar file manager.  Next time you start thunar you will be able to right click on different file types and have different actions available.

For                    Action
def files             Convert debian file to tar.gz
rpm files            Rpm file to tar.gz
Image files        Use ImageMagik for quick and fast image fixes
pdf files            Use ImageMagik to read and mark up a pdf.
text file            Use aspell to spell check a text file.
plus all the standard exploding, installing, extracting, removing and compressing options you may have come to expect from thunar custom actions.



****Please note.  If you have made your own Thunar custom actions. First back up the /home/$USER/.config/Thunar/uca.xml file before hand.  This script will install it's file and delete yours if you don't.

For most this won't be a problem as VL7.0 does not include custom actions at this point.

# HOW TO EDIT THIS FILE:
# The "handy ruler" below makes it easier to edit a package description.  Line
# up the first '|' above the ':' following the base package name, and the '|'
# on the right side marks the last column you can put a character in.  You must
# make exactly 11 lines for the formatting to be correct.  It's also
# customary to leave one space after the ':'.

Sorry, I left the name of the package out when I originally posted. In Gslapt you will find is by searching ucastall.

I know stupid name but that's the linux way.  ;D
