Install Bulky (Nemo bulk renamer)

I can not figure out how to install the new feature that is coming to Linux Mint 20.2. The bulk renamer Bulky (https://github.com/linuxmint/bulky).

Because it's such a new thing, i can't really find tutorials online... and i do not understand very well the concept of makefiles and stuff like that. Has anyone installed it/tested it? I would like to stop installing Thunar just for the bulk renamer!

This is related, and what got me interested in the first place: What is a good GUI file renamer that takes files from command line URIs?

  • For Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (and newer) the compilation process is straightforward:

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install git dpkg-dev debhelper
    
    cd ~/Downloads
    git clone https://github.com/linuxmint/bulky.git
    cd bulky/
    
    dpkg-buildpackage -uc -us
    sudo apt-get install ../bulky_1.6_all.deb
