caja-actions-config-tool(1) configure programs to launch from the caja file manager




caja-actions-config-tool does not have any options.


caja-actions is an extension for the caja file manager which allows arbitrary programs to be launched through the caja context menu.

Each time you right-click on one or more files in caja, or any part of the background of the currently opened folder, caja-actions will look at its configured actions to see if a program has been setup for this selection. If so, it will add an item to the menu that allows you to execute the program on the selected files.

Configurations are stored in DConf for speed and integration with other MATE programs. Configs can be easily shared using "Import/Export assistant" menu items in the Tools menu of caja-actions-config-tool.


caja-actions has been derived from nautilus-actions which has been written by Rodrigo Moya <rodrigo[AT]>, Frederic Ruaudel <grumz[AT]>, Pierre Wieser <pwieser[AT]>, and contributors.

The porting work to the MATE desktop environment under the extension name caja-actions has been done by Wolfgang Ulbrich <chat-to-me[at]>.
