How To Add Open In Terminal To The File menu On Ubuntu 13.04

I often use a terminal window and normally i press Ctrl+Alt+T to open it and to go to the folder i use the cd command to change into the needed directory.

But wouldn’t it be a lot easier to open a terminal in the folder using one right mouse click and select the option in the file menu? Yes it is!! And here is a guide how to get the open in terminal option in your file menu.

You can enable this option using the dconf-editor tool but first you need to install the nautilus-open-terminal package, to do this open a terminal window (press Ctrl+Alt+T) and copy+paste the following line:

sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal -y

When installed you can close the terminal window, and to start the dconf editor press the SuperKey and type: dconf editor

To enable the Open in Terminal option follow these steps:

Click on org
Click on gnome
Click on desktop
Click on Interface
Enable can-change-accels

When done you can close the dconf editor tool and you need to restart nautilus. To restart nautilus open a terminal window (press Ctrl+Alt+T) and copy+paste the following line:

nautilus -q

When nautilus is restarted close the terminal window and from now on if you want to open a file/folder in a terminal window you can do it by clicking on the file/folder with your right mouse button and select the option in the file menu.
