Sample scripts for the file popup menu

Under this link some sample scripts can be found. Move them into ~/.gnome-commander/scripts/ to extend the file popup menu (usable since v1.6.0).

Source code Installation on your Linux machine

There exist three very detailed installation HowTos, created by Ken Taylor(*). See here (deprecated) for the installation of Gnome Commander in CentOS and here for the installation in Debian, Ubuntu or Linux Mint. Newly added are instructions for Ubuntu 20.04 here

Since Gnome Commander 1.16.0, the dependend build system switched from autotools to meson. Please take note on the Development page for more information.

(*) Thank you, Ken!
