Python Scripts

 

Python Scripts

Here are some small Python scripts I have written over time. Usually they are tested on a recent version of Ubuntu Linux

This scripts are distributed in the hope that they will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. You are free to do with them what ever you want.



nautilus-print

A very simple extension for Nautilus, the standard file manager for the GNOME desktop, to print files from the context menu.

It’s not very sophisticated and doesn’t give any error messages if something goes wrong. It doesn’t do any file type conversion but relies on what your print system can do - so don’t expect too much.

Requirements

nautilus-print needs:

  • libautilus-extension Python bindings

    Tested with version 0.6.1 as distributed with Ubuntu 10.04 „Lucid Lynx“.

    For Ubuntu that’s the package python-nautilus

  • GtkLP

    Tested with version 1.2.7 as distributed with Ubuntu 10.04 „Lucid Lynx“.

    For Ubuntu that’s the package gtklp
