This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Ok, I'll delete this question. Thanks – TheKojuEffect Mar 15 '13 at 7:14
Don't. Your question contains the term present working directory. The other does not contain that terminology (if uses current). If we keep the question, people searching on pwd will be redirected via this question to the other question. – don.joey Mar 15 '13 at 7:16
As @Private says, we generally keep duplicates. We handle them by closing them. When a question is closed as a duplicate of another question, it is made to point clearly to that other question. For more details, you may want to see this blog post. – Eliah Kagan Mar 15 '13 at 7:31

nautilus . 

There is no need to add more than the .

You could make this an alias: alias n="nautilus ." and then you can just type n in the commandline to open the cwd in nautilus.

This is a duplicate. Please see How to open Nautilus at current command line directory?.

nautilus works as

nautilus [options] URIs...

Now, to open pwd in nautilus, we can do

nautilus ./
