You can try this:

1) Open the "Software Sources" application.

2) Make sure you have enable the "universe" repository, or you should enable it.

enter image description here

3) Close the software source app and open a Termianl and type:

  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal

The package "nautilus-open-terminal" is in universe repository.

It appears that one more step may be required. On the Terminal type: nautilus -q – NullPtr92065 Apr 28 at 18:53

It seems that the correct package name is: `nautilus-open-terminal-here


sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal-here

In the future you could use good old Synaptic to find packages you need:

sudo apt-get install synaptic

With synaptic it is easy to search and manage packages when in trouble. More detailed that Software center and simpler to handle than command line.
