Do you know of any way to make it put the terminal on the side instead of the top/bottom? – Stabledog Jan 28 '14 at 17:41
Give me time. I will try and let you know. – Raja Jan 28 '14 at 17:47
You can also press Shift+F4 in Dolphin to open current directory in a separate terminal window, or click through Control -> Tools -> Open Terminal if you want to use mouse. – Alexander Revo Feb 17 at 13:55
