I've recently switched from Kubuntu to Ubuntu and while I like the speed and cleanlyness, I'm missing some power features, particularly in Nautilus, like:

  • Opening a terminal in the current location

Are there extension for Nautilus to add these kinds of features? Or maybe a different file manager altogether. I know I can still use Dolphin but that doesn't integrate very well.

This nautilus opens the terminal one step back from the current location? Is this a bug or what is the issue? – Samitha Chathuranga Aug 9 '14 at 4:15
