I use ubuntu 11.10. I've tried to install nautilus action-3.1.5 with the software centre. It's been installed but doesn't start at all.

Then i've tried to install nautilus action-3.1.5 from source but when i do

./configure --with-gtk=3 --with-default-io-provider=na-desktop --disable-gconf

there is a problem with gconf:

checking for GCONF... no

configure: error: GCONF: condition gconf-2.0 >= 2.8.0 not satisfied

The same error's signalled if i do the simple command ./configure without paramethers. What can i do?

It will build fine on 11.10, you need to install libgconf2-dev

This is a bug , just check the link


a fix for this, you must download the latest source from and compile it with option --with-gtk=3 . It will work
