I have downloaded the last release of nautilus-action(3.1.5) and i want to install it, how to do that ???
Well they finally did release 3.1.4 for 12.04 but nothing yet for 11.10 so it's easy to build. Make sure you have the build-deps installed, this should suffice -
1 complete command
After installing deps extract & cd to your nautilus-actions-3.1.5 source folder, ie. your terminal prompt ends at nautilus-actions-3.1.5$, Example I have extracted in Downloads & cd'ed to it
Then at the terminal prompt copy & paste this, press enter
If the configure goes well then follow with this (see at end of post for my current configure summary
When that's done install with this, make sure that synaptic or software-center are not open
That sould do it, you can move the nautilus-actions_3.1.5-1 deb package somewhere to keep if you wish & delete the source folder. Even though not really needed here I always run this after any checkinstall or make install, never hurts
