"( You get a contextual menu when you right click on an
object.). Let us see how we can add a simple script to the
contextual menu. There is a special directory (
.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/ ) inside your home folder into which you
can put your custom scripts. Any script you place in that location
can be accessed by right-clicking on a file or window and selecting
it from the Scripts sub menu. (The Scripts menu item will be
visible only if you have some valid scripts installed.
"Let us try to open a terminal from the contextual menu. Change
to the scripts directory. ( Note that .gnome is a hidden directory,
try control -h in nautilus to see hidden files. )"
