Thanks a lot for your support.
I never try to build nautilus 2.26 for now, it comes with ubuntu jaunty
release with the related issue I have described before
Nautilus-action 1.41 build fine on gentoo, without the Makefile issue
you have got and without any big deal in the ebuild (no patch or
something), but with gnome 2.24 dependencies
By the way, your work creating nautilus extensions with python can be an
usefull help for my purpose. If you can describe how you do that,
exemples, howto... Considering that nautilus-action is not maintened
anymore, finding a way to bypass it in my programs and have the same
feature (creating item in the edit menu when selection match a specific
pattern, and pass the selection as arguments for the script) will be a
better way to do in the future.
I have a very long way before being a python guru, but the thing appears
more easy than C to understand

I thought I'd look into this but regretfully I haven't managed to even
build nautilus-actions yet. Read on for more information.
Unfortunaly, this extension don't work anymore with the new 2.26
version of nautilus.
As I'm still running Ubuntu 8.10 I had to first figure out how to build
Nautilus trunk using JHBuild since the following dependencies could not
Requested 'glib-2.0 >= 2.19.0' but version of GLib is 2.18.2
Requested 'gnome-desktop-2.0 >= 2.25.5' but version of gnome-desktop-2.0
Requested 'gtk+-2.0 >= 2.16.0' but version of GTK+ is 2.14.4
Took me a while but with a lot of help from the JHBuild maintainer
Frederic Peters I managed to get it to build in about an hour (by that
time I had already spent some 3 hours trying in vane). #nautilus locals
Baptiste Mille-Mathias (crevette) and Paolo Borelli (pbor) also helped out.
I've updated the wiki to include the instructions for building Nautilus
using JHBuild which should save other people the trouble of having to go
through the entire process again. See: http://tinyurl.com/d2d82v
A lot of people, using my programs and other scripts, are concerned
about this issue. But Grumz is not active anymore, and
nautilus-actions is not maintened at this time. I wonder it is here a
small issue, easy to fix for someone who know C bindings and nautilus
I only have some experience with developing Nautilus extensions in
Python and my C experience is incredibly limited but I thought I'd give
this a shot anyways.
However, I can't manage to compile nautilus-actions from the repository
because it seems the Makefile is somehow incorrect. The first error is:
Makefile:77: *** missing separator. Stop.
Even though I could probably resolve this one by editing the Makefile
itself that probably isn't a good idea since it seems this file is
automatically generated from the Makefile.am files scattered around the
directory. And even when manually editing the line it'll still complain
about other incorrect lines (73 etc.).
I haven't been able to figure out why, so until somebody else helps out
here this issue probably won't be resolved. I'm still willing to spend
some time debugging this issue though once this little snag gets worked
