I recently upgraded to Raring 13.04 and am having trouble installing nautilus-terminal

I rely very heavily on the project and how feel handicapped without the little terminal above my nautilus.

I have installed the application successfully but I think the new version of Nautilus does not support this plugin. Please correct me if im wrong.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Nautilus-terminal is not compatible with the version of Nautilus installed by default in Ubuntu 13.04.

From the link you provided:

Compatibility with Nautilus:

Nautilus Terminal 1.0 works with Nautilus 3.0 and 3.2 Nautilus Terminal 0.7.1 and previous work only with Nautilus 2.2x and Nautilus 2.3x

The version of Nautilus available by default in Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring) is 3.6.3 (link)

You'll need to downgrade Nautilus (which could very well be a highly involved task due to dependencies) or use a separate terminal window. For your purposes, tilda or guake may be a decent stand-in until Nautilus-terminal is updated to support Nautilus-3.6.x.

NOTE: I'd link to tilda and guake, but I don't have at least 10 reputation yet.

I hope that helps you out.

EDIT: Updated to add links for tilda and guake since reputation gain.

Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – guntbert Sep 26 '13 at 20:40
