Add an "Open in Terminal" entry in right click menu of the File Browser (Nautilus). This is like the "Open Command Window Here" PowerToy for Windows.


Close any open file browsers windows (just to be safe).
System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager
Search for "nautilus-open-terminal"
If you do not see it you need to add the "Universe" repository: https://help.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/desktopguide/C/extra-repositories.html
Mark it for installation then click Apply.
Open a new file browser and right click a folder. You should see "Open in Terminal". If you do not then log off and log in again.


I hope this helps you all to be a bit more productive.

Or the command line version (since this is for Terminal users in the first place):


sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal

:)

What about when you've arranged icons in the folder in listview? Is there an easy way to open the current folder in terminal?

It would be nice to be able to right click the folder directory at the top and open in terminal there.

Thanks a million for that. I haven't had to open a folder in the terminal since Mint 10. Have now added this to my file - 'Post Install'. A must for any intermediate+ operator.
