I have installed nautilus-open-terminal and it works but is rather clumsy. For better productivity I would like to use more intuitive shortcut in form of mouse click + ctrl to invoke gnome-terminal. How can i do that?

Do you want your short-cut to be Ctrl + Mouse click? The reason I am worried is Ctrl + Mouse click is a very common short-cut for applications like nautilus and firefox, which use it for selection and opening links in different tabs. Using it for opening the terminal may break this or may lead to undefined behaviour. –  Jobin Dec 29 '12 at 11:21
It's fine to have shift + click, if it impossible with ctrl, or whatever with click by itself –  nick Dec 29 '12 at 12:25
I believe your question is answered here: askubuntu.com/questions/68078/… –  chaskes Dec 29 '12 at 15:58
There you can only assign keyboard shortcut, no way for mouse one –  nick Dec 29 '12 at 20:23
