Getting nautilus to recognize a key press using the python-nautilus extension

Hi. I'm not subscribed to this list so I'd appreciate to be CC'd on a reply so that I can receive it. I have nautilus 3.18.5 running on an ubuntu 16.04.2 updated system. The reason I'm writing is to ask a question about the python-nautilus extension of nautilus. I'm trying to get nautilus to recognize a key combination on the keyboard to then have it run a script on the currently selected file(s)/folder(s). To ensure that this is possible, I searched on the web and found a site[1] that describes that this is possible, so I decided to use the script that it mentions was re-written for nautilus 3[2] and modify it just to test if nautilus at least recognizes the key press by opening a gnome-terminal if it does. Below is the brief modified code. Can anyone explain why the key press is not recognized for me? All I want is to get nautilus to recognize a key press and then run a script on the currently selected files. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
