    I'd like to choose some files in finder (or via QS), invoke quicsilver, press cmd-g to get the files in the first window of QS. Then I'd like to be able to use a workflow on these files, using the QS selection as an input.

    Searching through automator for a solution gave me the function "Get Quicksilver Selection" which I thought should do the trick. However, I can't seem to get it to work at all. I can't even choose it for my workflow, I just get an error message when I try to pull the object into the workflow :(
    The error is something like (I use the swedish osx which give me the messages in swedish, I'll try to translate it.. ):
    "Get QS selection" can't be read since its executable file is not readable.

    Have anyone solved this?

    but this is exactly how I already am using it. I want the workflow to be used as an action rather than a file, is this impossible?

    Not sure what you mean.

    Setting up a trigger for the selected finder items is the only solution I can think of - my post at google groups.
