Open Nautilus, and go to Places->Templates.  Just add files there.

GTK+-2.4 is ABI and API compatible with 2.0.  However, apps that define
DISABLE_*_DEPRECATED may no longer work.  In those cases, you will have
to remove those defines from the Makefiles/configure scripts, and they
should build just fine.  If anyone produces patches for such apps,
please send them.  We will need them for the release.
