Install Nautilus Actions 3.1.5 With Alternative Method To Avoid Error


Nautilus Actions Extra is a set of scripts for Nautilus 3 that adds many useful options to the Ubuntu right-click context menu. While Nautilus Actions can be easily installed in Ubuntu 11.10 via a PPA, some users are facing issues with the installation of Nautilus Actions Extra version 3.1.5. The problem that they are facing is that, during the installation process of Nautilus Actions, the Trace/breakpoint trap (core dumped) error is received. Even if somehow Nautilus Actions gets installed, the Nautilus Actions Configuration Tool auto closes after being launched. In this post, we will provide you with an alternative method of installing Nautilus-Actions (3.1.5), so that you can install it correctly in Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot.

To install Nautilus Actions in Ubuntu 11.10, open a Terminal window, and enter the following commands:

wget -O nautilus-actions-3.1.5.tar.gz
tar zxvf nautilus-actions-3.1.5.tar.gz 

cd nautilus-actions-3.1.5 

./configure --with-gtk=3 


sudo make install

This will install Nautilus Actions, and you can start Nautilus-Actions from the Terminal with the below command, or via the Unity Dash:

It is unfortunate that such issues have become frequent with Ubuntu applications, as the frequent development cycle updates and kernel changes for Ubuntu seem to be one of the root causes of compatibility issues and errors that are being caused for applications and scripts. In case you come across any further issues or bugs related to Nautilus Actions, you can report them at the Launchpad link given below.

    Try satisfying the requirements specified by the config error line. For instance, I installed ‘libgtk-3-dev’ and hurdled the error associated with that but encountered several more after repeatedly running ‘./configure….’. I ended up installing several dev (libunique-3.0-dev, libdbus-glib-1-dev, libgconf2-dev, libgtop2-dev, libnautilus-extension-dev; might be different from yours) files before having complete success with configure.
