I use nautilus as my default file manager. Very frequently I need to transfer files to other devices via bluetooth. Is there some way to add a "Send Via Bluetooth" option in the right click context menu for a selected file, or for a selection of multiple files?

Thanks in advance.

There is this script

You have to copy it to ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/

And may need to install its latest dependencies too.

This didn't work for me on 15.04. I installed the script, the unrelated debian package, and all the dependencies, but still no option appears. :-( – tudor Aug 17 '15 at 0:35
@tudor can you run any other custom nautilus script? I mean some script you create by hand just to test if it is working. Btw my nautilus version is 3.10.1, and I use the LTS 14.04. May be the custom scripts path has changed for your version? – Aquarius Power Aug 18 '15 at 4:01
