Utility which allow to create "union points" in which the content of multiple directories appear, thus providing an easy way to organize data (for example by making the content of "video" folder on a USB key to appear in the same folder as videos stored on the local hard-disk).
It is usable as a stand-alone application or as a Nautilus extension.
Technically it uses unionfs-fuse and remember the list of directories to mount them when session starts or when they appear if they were not available at session startup.
To install on Ubuntu :
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:zanko/daemontux-stuff && sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install easy-union-nautilus
(or "sudo apt-get install easy-union" to install without the Nautilus extension)
To install on ArchLinux :
yaourt -S easy-union-nautilus
(or "yaourt -S easy-union" to install without the Nautilus extension)
To install on another system :
install bazaar (bzr) then:
bzr co lp:nautilus-easy-unionfs
(look at INSTALL file for list of dependencies)
Warning: the Nautilus extension will not work (at least for now) with Gnome 3's Nautilus
