    shortcut to open a terminal

    Greetings

    What is the shortcut to open a terminal please?
    And if I'm pressing that shortcut while I'm in a specific folder, does it start in that path?

    I'm not the most experienced Ubuntu user, but you can always add the Terminal to your top Panel which contains your menu etc.
    Just go to Applications, go to Accessories and right click the terminal and click Add To Panel.
    This doesn't start the terminal in the current directory opened but you can always do a quick cd (extremely powerful, relative and absolute).

    Re: shortcut to open a terminal

    Just found it:
    System > Preferences > keyboard shortcuts
    run a terminal: Ctrl+Alt+t

    But it opens with no path to where I was when I launched it..
    How to do that please, without having to type the path?

    Thanks Joshwaa, we posted at the same time.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal

    You can right-click a folder and it gives the option to "open terminal here"

    Big +1 for "nautilus-open-terminal"

    After installing it, you have to log out and back in for it to take effect.

    OR, you can run `xkill` and click the desktop or a nautilus window.
    nautilus will close and automatically restart.

    Or you just can type nautilus -q in terminal to restart only nautlus, no need to log out.
