Comfortable copy, move, extract script for Thunar custom actions

Hi!
Here is another script I use quite often. It makes some file operations in Thunar more comfortable. It will ask for elevated permissions if required and finds the correct extraction method for different archives. It requires Yad (Zenity should also work), gksu and some command line archive tools like unrar, 7zip aso., if you like to include their functions. For me it is a real time-saving script. It may be improved by making it a little more failsave, but it should work as it is.

#!/bin/bash

set -e
addname=""
path=""
action=$(yad --width 300 --entry --title "Smart Move" \
    --button="OK:0" --button="Cancel:1" \
    --text "Choose action:" \
    --entry-text \
    "Move" "Copy" "Extract_as_Folder" "Extract_Content")
ret=$?

	case $action in
   		 Move*) act=1 ;;
    		 Copy*) act=2 ;;
                 Extract_as_Folder*) act=3 ;;
                 Extract_Content*) act=4 ;;
  	 	 *) exit 1 ;; 
	esac

ypath=$(yad --width 800 --height 600 --title "Smart Move" --file-selection --directory)

for fullpath in "$@"
do
    filename="${fullpath##*/}"                                     # Strip longest match of */ from start
    xpath="${fullpath:0:${#fullpath} - ${#filename}}"  # Substring from 0 thru pos of filename
    xbase="${filename%.[^.]*}"                                   # Strip shortest match of . plus at least one non-dot char from end
    xfext="${filename:${#xbase} + 1}" 
                 # Substring from len of base thru end
    if [[ -z "$xbase" && -n "$xfext" ]]; then          
        xbase=".$ext"
        xfext=""
    fi

	if [[ ! -e "$ypath/$filename" ]]; then
   		 newname="$filename" 
	else
