I don't know what I have touched, but now in my xfce desktop, both in folder and in files, I cannot run "open terminal" from right-click menu.

NOTE: I am using Nemo as File Manager

Right-Clicking on a file or on a folder, the item 'Open in terminal' / 'Open terminal here' is no more present.

Right-clicking on the whyte space of file manager (nemo) I see 'open terminal', but it doesn't work.

I'd like to restore the original behaviour.

Could you kindly explain me how?

I already tried on Settings->default applications->utility->terminal emulator to change the selection. Nothing changes. Is a reboot needed? (it's a server, so it's quite complicated just "reboot to try")

  • Oh, sorry, I didn't precised: i am using nemo. It's a strange config for a low-spec vps for a customer – realtebo Feb 21 at 7:47
  • Try to use Thunar, by following these instructions (docs.xfce.org/xfce/thunar/custom-actions); try to make it working with Thunar. Maybe something will be connect also for Nemo file manager. I don't use Nemo, but Thunar has no problems – Riccardo Volpe Feb 25 at 11:51
  • Suggestion: Note the version of Nemo and Xfce Terminal you are running (run nemo --version and xfce4-terminal --version | head -n 1 in terminal) and include in your question. – clearkimura Mar 5 at 11:41
