    Lightbulb Shortcut to drag'n'drop open folder in terminal

    Trick I just discovered:

    Shortcut to drag'n'drop open folder in terminal-
    1. Create panel launcher for gnome-terminal. (Right click, add to panel, application, terminal.)
    2. Right click, edit launcher properties.
    3. Change "Command" line to "gnome-terminal --working-directory=%u"

    Drag and drop folders from nautilus, or your desktop, onto the icon. (Even folder-names from Nautilus "location" bar!)

    Terminal window will open in that directory.
