I think you were right before when you said it was more appropriate as a separate app. It's a completely different use case, only really useful for developers.

Yup, I'm still there; I meant 'option' in general, as an app.
...I failed again while Thought > Word (apparently I'm still in beta stage Embarassed).

Cool
Greetings!

Users should also be aware of the drag and drop capability of Rox's copy and rename dialogues. As described in the comments at http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=1055694&group_id=7023&atid=357023

Hi, SFR Smile

Thank you very much for this new option for Rox. It is exactly what I was wondering how to make possible. Your pet package saves me a lot of hard work which probably was going to reach a dead end.

I ask for your permission to include your scripts as a copy-paste option in a remastered version of Sickgut's Pussy-linux. Do you mind if I also do some small modifications with the paths inside the script?

Thanks again and best regards Smile

Hey Saintless, nice to see you! Smile

Naturally, you can modify it as you wish and put wherever you want.
You didn't even have to ask, but it's nice of you.

And I'm glad you have found it useful.

Thanks & Greetings!

The main town is much bigger than the village and it is like we don't go often in the same places but the important thing is we are here and we will meet again.

Cheers

Nice but can the same be done with "move" ? A customised "send to" like in Windows will also be nice. Is there a way of moving something to trash without having to drag and drop it (adding a symlink for trash to "open with" looks a bit silly)?

I think don570's right-click package will answer your need. It has a link to
the trash folder for a great many ROX actions accessed by right-click.

Ask him directly for the download link, since he's on this thread?
I don't have it at hand.

BFN.

Hey guys

I completely forgot about this app (TBH, I'm not using it anymore - drag'n'drop turned out to be faster for me, in the end Wink ).

As for the trash, I cooked up a script once, that adds/removes 'Trash' shortcut to the right-click menu:
Code:
#! /bin/bash

# Adds/removes Trash to the context menu
# Usage:
# ./script_name add
# ./script_name remove

OpenWith_PATH="$HOME/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/OpenWith/"

case "$1" in
  "add")
    # Creates missing folders using contents of 'globs' file
    for i in `cat /usr/share/mime/globs | grep ":" | cut -f1 -d ':' | tr '/' '_' | uniq`; do
      [ ! -d "${OpenWith_PATH}.${i}" ] && mkdir "${OpenWith_PATH}.${i}"
    done
    # Creates missing folders using contents of 'types' file
    for i in `cat /usr/share/mime/types | tr '/' '_' | uniq`; do
      [ ! -d "${OpenWith_PATH}.${i}" ] && mkdir "${OpenWith_PATH}.${i}"
    done
    mkdir "${OpenWith_PATH}.inode_unknown"
    # Creates symlink to the Trash in every folder
    for i in `find "$OpenWith_PATH" -maxdepth 1 -type d -iname ".*"`; do
      [ ! -L "$i/Trash" ] && ln -s /usr/local/apps/Trash "$i"
    done
  ;;
   
  "remove")
    # Removes every symlink to the Trash
    for i in `find "$OpenWith_PATH" -maxdepth 1 -type d -iname ".*"`; do
      [ -L "$i/Trash" ] && rm "$i/Trash"
    done
  ;;
esac
   
exit

It covers lots of known (and unknown) filetypes, dirs, symlinks, block devices, actually more than needed...

Greetings!

They were worried about not looking cool having it in the "send to" or "open with" menu though Wink
Actually I think there is a patch somewhere to replace the delete menu entry with it, but I never tried it because I'm not worried about looking cool.
But are you sure

Do you really need to add things for specific filetypes? In the old days, before the first "rox right clicks" package, you just put things in the menu and they applied to all file types - is it not possible to have ones like that as well as ones for specific file types?

Hmm, I'm not sure, but from what I know the only way to add something to the main level of right-click menu is to bind it with specific mime-type.
Otherwise it can be available only in OpenWith/SendTo, which I'm not saying isn't cool, but it takes additional 2-3 seconds to access it. Wink
___________

BTW, since the thread has been revived, I took a look into my code and I didn't like what I found there, therefore I rewrote MultiCopyPaste from scratch, but using SOAP RPC method, so now, instead of that ugly terminal window, we have normal ROX copy/move dialog.
Still three options in OpenWith/SendTo submenu, but they have additional leading spaces, so they'll show up on top of the list:
Multi-Copy
Multi-Move
Multi-Paste

Now it's much better. Smile

First post updated!

Greetings!

Hey Toni

You're welcome, I hope the new version works better.
And nice to see you again. Smile
___________

I forgot to re-implement the (unique) ability to paste into _multiple_ folders at once, as it was in the previous version.
Added in v2.1.

I also replaced arrow icons with public domain Tango icons for Cut, Copy and Paste actions (oh, I renamed Multi-Move to Multi-Cut, btw).

And the last change is that ROX Copy/Move dialog pops up always now, it's not in "Quiet" mode by default anymore.

First post updated!

Greetings!
