Thunar is a new modern file manager for the Xfce Desktop Environment. Thunar has been designed from the ground up to be fast and easy-to-use.
Here’s how you can define a new custom action. We will be working with the script used in: http://jpatrao-online.blogspot.com/2010/08/convert-m4a-to-mp3.html
Create the following directory: mkdir ~/.config/Thunar/scripts
Copy and change the permissions of the script "flac_mp3": chmod +x ~/.config/Thunar/scripts/flac_mp3
Now, it's time to create a "Custom Action" on Thunar. Like the screen shoots below:
Description: Convert flac to mp3
And select OK. (Tip: Check out the separator Appearance Condition)
Testing: You will see something like this when right-clicking on a flac file:
In your folder you will see a new file mp3, and it's it.
