[FAQ] How to add Open Terminal option to the right click menu(Gnome)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
This how-to is on how to get an Open Terminal option in the right click menu in Gnome.

Test System: Ubuntu 6.10 & 7.04

First thing that you have to do is get the package nautilus-open-terminal.
**On Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal



Then you need to restart nautilus either by loging out and then back in(Recommended)
-OR-
by giving this command in the terminal: nautilus -q
Then give it a few seconds then nautilus file manager file will appear.

Now in your right-click menu you can open a terminal, and it will be in what ever directory you are currently in in Nautilus.

Example: If you right click on the desktop, it'll open it to the directoy: /home/$USER/Desktop
If you right clicked in your music directory inside your home: /home/$USER/music

Saves you from having to "cd" to that directory.
