    Here's something a forum user asked about, and I thought it better to post the answer here, as it's quite useful.

    If you'd like to have the option to open a terminal in a specific directory when right-clicking in a folder in Nautilus (like in KDE), follow these steps:

    1. Download the attached script I wrote
    2. Copy it to ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts
    3. Rename it to "Open Terminal Here" or whatever you like
    4. Make it executable by: chmod +x "Open Terminal Here"


    Now whenever you right-click in a folder, choose Scripts -> Open Terminal Here

    Enjoy!

    I have to tell you, though, that this script is now ancient (in Ubuntu terms).

    I guess some people liked my idea and now we have a much more comprehensive (and multilingual) package that you can install more easily (e.g. via Synaptic). It's called:

    nautilus-open-terminal

    and in order to install it you must have the universe repository enabled in Software Sources.

    I also use the nautilus-gksu package which allows one to open directories as administrator.
