   Hi M=C3=A5rten,
          I like this, very neat. But I can only make it work as a
stand alone programme. You say I need Nautilus Extensions Library
I am not certain what this is. I have eel2 and eel2-devel installed;
is there something else required? Or something to do to enable it in=20
the Nautilus browser?
                   Bill =20
