Preview Pane on ubuntu (jammy) in Nautilus

ug flag

I like the feature in Windows (Preview pane) but I want this feature in Ubuntu (jammy) in Nautilus File Manager too. If there is any plugin (Kindly share that).

Anything through which I can enable the preview pane let me know. Otherwise, I have to build a plugin on my own.

I tried to download Nautilus-actions,but error coming

Package nautilus-actions is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'nautilus-actions' has no installation candidate

I used the command:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nautilus-actions

Let me know what to do.

cn flag

The packages nautilus-actions and filemanager-actions are obsolete and they are not available after 20.04. See here and here.

You might want to use Nautilus Scripts.

For an example, please see one of my previous answers.

Having said that, you can install the package gnome-sushi and use the space bar to preview most types of files in Nautilus.

I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
