Nautilus Scripts for Document Conversion

Nautilus Scripts for Document Conversion

Minimum required   GNOME 3.x

Description:

This is a very simple and basic pack of Nautilus Scripts using unoconv package, "a commandline utility which can convert from any document format that LibreOffice can import to any document format it can export. It uses LibreOffice's UNO bindings for non-interactive conversion of documents. Supported document formats include Open Document format, MS Word, MS Office Open/MS OOXML, PDF, HTML, XHTML, RTF, DocBook, and more."

The command used basically is: Quote:
unoconv --doctype=xxxxxx --format=xxx "$filename"

But as an added feature, multiple files (of the same type) can also be selected and converted with a single click.

Simply make sure that you have installed unoconv package in addition to LO, and copy the contents to your Nautilus Scripts folder, which is ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts for Nautilus 3.4, ~/.local/share/nautilus/scripts for Nautilus 3.6.

Package contains scripts for converting to the following formats:
DOC, DOCX, HTML, ODP, ODS, ODT, PDF, PPT, PPTX, TXT, XLS, XLSX

NOTE: As of December 2013, atareao team (https://launchpad.net/~atareao) has also published a Nautilus extensions package called nautilus-document-converter which provides all of these functionalities.




Changelog:

1.2 After I guess "unoconv" began supporting input filename only, I went back to using the simpler command in v1.0, just keeping the audio-visual notification introduced in v1.1. But just in case v1.1 is still available as an alternative.
1.1 After "nautilus-document-converter" stopped working under Ubuntu 14.04 I began using this (simpler) Script pack again, and had to also include "output file name" in the command - probably due to a change in "unoconv" code.

 Quick question

Thanks for these fantastic scripts. Just a quick question, though: How did you get the scripts to have custom icons?

Depending on the location of the icon you choose to use (and the location of your nautilus scripts) you can create and run a simple script containing commands like this for each and every script file:

gvfs-set-attribute -t string "/home/sadi/.local/share/nautilus/scripts/UnoConv/Convert to ODT" metadata::custom-icon file:///home/sadi/.icons/NITRUX/apps/scalable/libreoffice3-writer.svg

Thank you!

Actually, the funny thing is that I was just researching this topic when I found your Q&A over at AskUbuntu (http://askubuntu.com/questions/253775/is-it-possible-to-assign-change-custom-icons-for-files-in-a-batch-from-command). After reading that I headed back here and saw your reply. Talk about recursiveness, haha.

Anyway, the strange thing is that Nautilus doesn't display any icons in the "Scripts" context menu for me. As far as I understand you do actually see them on your system.

May I ask if there is any modification in particular you had to do to get this work? I tried changing some dconf settings regarding icons displayed in buttons/menus but it doesn't appear to be working for me. This is the tutorial I followed: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1906823&p=11600535#post11600535

I am using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS if that's relevant.

Regards

I haven't done anything else.
I just found this command and applied it.
However, this didn't let me have custom icons for Nautilus scripts when running Nautilus as root.
Another point is that when I look at dconf settings I see that "buttons with icons" and "menus with icons" are both bold (meaning default settings have been modified) although both check boxes are empty (false). Perhaps this merely shows I switched these "buttons/menus with buttons" options on and off some time in the past.
Perhaps this works in Ubuntu 12.10 or higher (or rather Nautilus versions concerned).
I've only been using Linux for several years, and this is all know -- at least for the time being -- on this matter.
I hope this helps.
