How To Get ‘Open in Terminal’ Option In Ubuntu Linux

Here’s how to get ‘Open in Terminal’ option in Ubuntu Linux:

1. Issue the following command at the terminal –

sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal

2. Reboot your system and you’ll have the option of ‘Open in Terminal’ in the right-click context menu while browsing files in Nautilus file manager.

    helpful tip. dont reboot! not needed… just open a terminal and type
    killall nautilus
    then type
    now you can close the terminal window just be sure to include that & sign without a space in that last command.
    now you will see the open in terminal in the context window when you right click within a nautilus window.
    please note that executing killall nautilus will close out all existing nautilus (file manager) windows XD
