Open a terminal from nautilus

Sometimes you use nautilus to browse among directories. When you locate the file you want to work with, you’d like to open a terminal in the current directory. How to do that?


sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal
nautilus -q    # for restarting nautilus

Now, if you right click in nautilus, you’ll have a new menu item called “Open in Terminal”.

This tip is from here.
