Nautilus-Actions is a nautilus configuration tool that allows users to add various actions to your file manager context menu (right-click menu). If you have installed Nautilus-Actions under Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot via PPA, you will notice that it's not running and if started from the terminal, you will get this error:

  Trace/breakpoint trap (core dumped)

To be able to run Nautilus-Actions on Ubuntu 11.10, you need to install from source as described below until the PPA for Oneiric is resolved.
