Nautilus extension: Launcher creator

A nautilus extension providing an advanced dialog in order to create a launcher (.desktop file) for any file.

How it works

  • Right-click on a file, click on the "Create a launcher" menu item

  • Give a name to the launcher. If the file isn't executable, you should use the type "Link" instead of "Application" (it will not be displayed in menus)

  • Optionally a short description and a list of categories and keywords

  • Select an icon

How to install

  • Install the package python-nautilus (it's its name on Debian at least).
  • Download the code, make install.sh executable, and execute it.
  • Quit (and restart) Nautilus, and then it should works.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
