How can I edit the contextual menu in Ubuntu? How can I add/remove items? Will the method for Ubuntu also work for variants such as Kubuntu/Xubuntu/Lubuntu? Is there a configuration file that I can edit, or do I have to use a program/utility instead?

Edit: Someone pointed out that every program handles its own contextual menu. In particular, I would like to be able to edit the contextual menus for Nautilus and the Unity desktop interface.

  • Won't each program have it's own contextual menu which may or may not be configurable by the end user? For example, see here for gnome-terminal. I also know that the context menus of Firefox and Opera are editable, but it would be very interesting to know of a way to do so generally. – user25656 Feb 20 '13 at 0:29
