Re: How to get file parameters for a Nautilus Script while

Maybe you could try to convert your nautilus script into a nautilus-actions action [1]. You will have the possibility to have contextual appearance of your script in the popup menu and all the parameters you need will be available to your script even included the hostname and login of the connection.

Feel free to contact me if you need more info about it.

Best regards,

I have read in the Gnome Users Guide (
that when you are browsing a remote server, such as FTP through Nautilus, Nautilus Scripts are not passed any parameters.

This essentially means many, if not most, scripts will not actually work.

I realize it is probably a security feature, but is there any way to get around this?

In other words can I get file information, especially file name and path passed to my script as a parameter?

Thanks for your help,
