Here’s how to get collection of cool scripts in nautilus context menu in Linux Mint 11 / Ubuntu 11.04:

1. Issue the following command at the terminal –

cd ~

2. Issue the following command at the terminal –

cd .gnome2

[Note: People running older versions of Gnome may have ‘.gnome’ folder instead of ‘.gnome2’, in which case, the above command will get modified to – cd .gnome]

3. Now, issue the following command at the terminal –

wget http://g-scripts.sourceforge.net/nautilus-scripts.tar.gz

4. After the file has been downloaded, issue the following command –

tar -zxvf nautilus-scripts.tar.gz

5. After the files have been extracted, start nautilus and check out the right-click context menu, which will now present you with a collection of cool and very useful scripts.

The following scripts will be available –
