The script created by WebUpd8 reader Remy which we were telling you about a few days ago just got updated.
The new version can convert to / from two more formats: flv and aac (it used to work for lac, mp3, wav and ogg), and an quality selector for ffmpeg has also been added. This version also checks if a file exists and asks if you want to open Nautilus.
The Nautilus with Gnome Activity Journal integration was an idea introduced by Ian Cylkowski but it seems we'll not have Nautilus with Gnome Activity Journal, but with Zeitgesit (ZeitgeistFS to be more exact), like you can see in the video below (and the above screenshot).
Almost everyone uses Dropbox these days. If you care about looks, you will probably want to change the icons. Unfortunately, there is no way (that I know of) to change the notification area icon, but the default icons used in Nautilus to display the status of each file can easily be changed. Charles A. @ Dropbox forums posted some beautiful Tango icons

Tired of searching Google for movie subtitles and just wanted to find them in the folder where you keep your movies?

Windows XP sets an image called folder.jpg as the icon of that folder. We can achieve this in Gnome / Nautilus too, with the use of a Python script, thanks to fifo @ubuntuforums (via Stephen O'Sullivan).
The script basically automates the process of converting a folder icon to, by default, an image in that folder by the name of either folder.jpg or Folder.jpg.
Not so long ago we discovered a simplified version of Nautilus which seems to miss Ubuntu Karmic after all so the only way to get it is through it's PPA.
Nautilus (the GNOME file manager) is able to display thumbnails for several file types: images, video, audio (holding you mouse over a sound file for a few second), text, pdf, etc.

Easy-Union is a Nautilus extension which allow to create "union points" in which the content of multiple directories appear, thus providing an easy way to organize data (for example by making the content of "video" folder on a USB key to appear in the same folder as videos stored on the local hard-disk).
This Nautilus script can convert between a variety of audio, video, image, text and create iso from another image format. It can also convert video to audio and video or pdf to individual frames. And finally, it can convert a txt file to image or .wav.
