Adding pcmanfm actions for specific file types?

Postby nocturtle » Fri Jan 13, 2012 4:16 pm

Hi,

Is there an easy way to add context-specific menu items to pcmanfm for particular file types? I can add applications using the right-click functionality, but I'd like to add actions. For example, prior to migrating to Lxde I used nautilus-actions and scripts to manipulate pdf, ppms and jpgs to convert files between different formats, resize photos or split up pdf files into single pages. Is there a configuration file I can add this to or would I need to construct a script to do this so I don't have to open a terminal each time?

Thanks for all answers!

Though not nautilus scripts. Maybe you are looking for something like this.

Hm, I don't think we're using the same version of PCManFM because I don't have half the menu options you have. I'm on Lubuntu with PCManFM version 0.9.9...anyway, looks like exactly what I'm looking for. Guess I'll just wait for the upgrade. :| Thanks anyway!

The screenshot of @rokytnji correspond not to PCmanFM, but to PCmanFM-mod, which is a fork of the original PCmanFM. This fork have some interesting other features ;)

You can download it as a .deb file (executable for install) from:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/pcmanfm-mod/files/

Cheers,
