When you right click on a Linux desktop, a menu appears which contains entries like "New folder", "Change desktop background", "Paste", "Scripts", etc. But on a fresh install in Ubuntu 12.10, the "Scripts" option is not showing. I suspect it has something to do with the updated "Nautilus File Manager" software. Is it possible to turn on the script option so that I can execute scripts with a single click? Thank you ...
Scripts menu(on right-click popup menu) will appear if you add some scripts file to ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts.You can install Ubuntu Tweak and you can add some certain scripts to this director easily or add your script's file to this folder.
I had the same problem in ubuntu 12.10 running Gnome nautilus 3.6.3
