View Full Version : [kubuntu] konqueror "open in terminal" action missing, how to install?

So, on my kubuntu install, I have an 'open in terminal' action when I right click. On my boyfriend's newly installed system, this action is missing. What package do I need to install for this? I tried kdeaddons, no luck. This is kubuntu 8.04. Thanks!

Well, here it is a few years later... same problem exists in a standard install of Ubuntu 11.10 followed by Konqueror 4.7.4. What you now need to do is hit F4, or else Tools->Open Terminal in the menus.

If you get a message something like "KDEInit could not launch 'konsole': Could not find 'konsole' executable." then it simply means that the konsole (KDE version of terminal) isn't installed. After a bunch of false leads, I finally just looked in the Ubuntu Software Centre and yes "konsole" is listed. Install it and you are good to go.

If you really want it to be right-clickable from a folder other than the current folder, you could try the instructions on this page (I haven't tried this myself)
