You could try using zenity to prompt the user for the directory, and
then call rsync.
DIR=`zenity --file-selection --directory --filename="$DEFAULT_DIR"
--title="Please choose a directory..."`;

I was hoping to be able to configure a nautilus-action item that would
take a parameter. I have my portable music player and my music
library, and I'm copying from my library to my player. Often times, I
want to update the files that are there, but would like to save the
time of recopying everything. rsync is perfect for this job.
So I wrote a nautilus-action that can rsync to a fixed directory. Is
there any way I can have it prompt the user for a targer when I choose
"rsync to..." from my menu?
Another alternative would be if I could drag a collection of files to
a target directory and have nautilus use rsync to do the copy, butit
seemed easier with nautilus-actions.
Please keep me CCed as I'm not subscribed, thanks!
