    Default Nautilus Scripts Not working


    *Well, the title says it all. None of my scripts are working.
    Sometimes I get as far as entering my password but that's it.*

    The title doesn't say that much. Errors when you try? Script contents?
    Did they ever work? Do they work on other systems? Do they work as
    other users? Do they run when executed from the command line? What
    language are they written in? Which version of (presumably) opensuse
    are you using and on which architecture? Are the scripts in a 'noexec'
    partition? Are they marked executable? Do they have the proper shebang
    line at the top (e.g. #!/bin/bash)?

    Good luck.

    My scripts are from gscripts: 'Nautilus File Manager Scripts: Welcome to
    G-Scripts' (http://g-scripts.sourceforge.net/)and gnome-look.org. And
    yes they all have worked on other platforms.
    I am attempting to use them on OpenSuse 11.1 Gnome version. All of the
    scripts are executable.
    There are no errors that I have been able to find. After entering my
    password the box disappears and thats it.

    Looks like they just may have outdated instructions. Maybe try
    extracting them to ~/.gnome2 instead of ~/.gnome to see if that helps.

    Good luck.

    They are in .gnome2. Many are from 'Eyecandy for your GNOME-Desktop -
    GNOME-Look.org' (http://www.gnome-look.org/)and since I keep an eye out
    for new and updated ones I would think they would be outdated would
    they?

    I'm not very adept at this, but I was just wondering if there would be a
    better chance of these working if they were converted to python as
    opposed to bash. Maybe one of you who does a little scripting would
    know.

    I would suspect you would have, at best, an equal chance since Linux is
    typically good about just running scripts that are setup properly. Run
    one of these from the command line to ensure it works. If it does then
    try Alt+F2 and see if you can get something there that way (you
    mentioned something about a password, but no details about how you
    managed to get there). Please be specific in all that you do. So far
    these scripts, when in my directory properly, seem to run just fine.

    Good luck.
