Nautilus Scripts

Requires Zenity for pop-up reminder dialog box and- in ubuntu Gutsy - it's already installed. This is a script when selected in the current directoy will in one full swoop delete all hidden backup files that get automade when pressing save in gedit and so forth.

Yes it delets both hidden dot backup files and non-hidden ones in one script.

Add to the nautilus script folder and right-click properties - tab = permissions and make sure u the owner have execute permissions & or the execute box is checked.

Also NOTE that u don't have to have them show up first to delete them, altho u won't see them get deleted if u don't - that's the only diff.
