Excellent extension! But as gnome-shell 3.4 has been released, could you add support for gnome shell 3.4? Thank you.

Hello,

I love this gnome shell extension, i'd like to ask you if it's possible for the ssh part to use the ~/.ssh/config file ?

I use this to have all my host and may be it could be great that the extention read the file and then add all the host ?

some exemple of the config can be found here : http://kb.mediatemple.net/questions/1625/Using+a+SSH+Config+File

If it's not possible it's not a problem :)

the bookmarks section working with emit signal on nautilus bookmarks, so if you are not connected, the bookmark place is hidden. By the way you can use ssh menu section or actions menu section for this job. I will try to change the default "bookmarks" style to support all places as well. For now is used the default gnome-shell bookmarks style

I have a lot of links to external servers in my .gtk-bookmarks file i.e., links of the form sftp://example.com/home/user

These work fine in the Nautilus bookmarks menu, and they worked fine in the old GNOME 2 places memu, but they don't show up in this extension.

Is it possible to add support for them?

Thanks for this great plugin!

My users directories (Music, Downloads, etc) don't show up!

I have custom names setup for my user directories in user-dirs.dirs (Musik, Dls, etc)

I'm wondering why it isn't working.

Hi there,
If I install 1.5.3 on Ubuntu, the preferences dialog no longer comes up (so I can't tell if the Actions bug is fixed).

Thanks

read carefully the "UPDATE" file, you need always after the copy, chmod +x the epmupdater file

This is fantastic!

The option to open filesystem as root saves me some time and effort.

The actions menu is great - I just recently upgraded from Ubuntu 11.04 to 11.10, and was quite shocked by the changes from GNOME 2 to 3, especially the loss of the launchers I used to have on my panel for different scripts. :( But hooray, I can now have those scripts in the actions menu! :)

Adding items to the actions menu is currently broken for me, as I'm on the 1.5.2 version from Webupd8's PPA, but I see you've already fixed this in the newest update. I imagine Webupd8 will have 1.5.3 up soon enough.

As it happens, I'm also a user of both VirtualBox and FileZilla, so this tool has fit very well into my usage patterns. Thank you for making this!

WebUpd have it in 1.5.2 (second release), you need run only sudo apt-get update and you will get the update (of course if you have enabled WebUpd PPA)

I have a suggestion: if Nautilus is not set to draw the desktop, running Nautilus as root changes the desktop background to the root wallpaper.

To fix this, you could use this in the "nautilus-root" file:
pkexec /usr/bin/nautilus --no-desktop /

And I also have a question: I would like to upload this to the WebUpd8 GNOME3 PPA but there's no license... I assume it uses the same license as the original Places Menu extension, right?

Thanks!

thanks for the suggestion, it has been implemented into v 1.5, also the nautilus-root file is no more used (check the archive). yes you can publish it as well. Also you can package it for deb systems if you want. At this point, please fix all metadata.js files in your PPA to have the version 3.2 not only 3.2.0, because in today gnome-shell update this was necessary
