    Although I’ve been testing cherrytree I have just found and started exploring Nautilus PyExtensions GUI.

    I have installed Nautilus PyExtensions GUI in Ubuntu 14.04 (GNOME nautilus 3.10.1) and in ~/.local/share/nautilus-python/extensions
    I copied four test scripts …

    open-terminal-here.py
    open-as-root.py
    meld-compare.py
    replace-in-filenames.py

    However although these extensions seem to be working I cannot deactivate any of these extensions by unticking in the GUI. They all remain ticked.

    Also I would like to explore how to build multi level menus where there are many extensions to select from. I see that meld-compare.py introduces menus.

    Hi, it probably doesn’t work because you half installed manually and half used the gui, it is some time since I’m not using nautilus (I’m on Mate right now) but will check this on 14.04 in the next days and let you know.

    Could you run nautilus-pyextensions from a terminal and, when the untick is not working, tell me what is printed on the terminal?

    The popup enable/disable window does not work when I run command
    nautilus-pyextensions
    But .. it does work when I run command as root
    sudo nautilus-pyextensions

    So I changed permissions of ~/.local/share/nautilus-python/ folder (and below) from root to user and extensions now work and place the unticked extensions into a created “not_active” folder.

    Thanks. Solved.
