  • That other duplicate question is 6 months newer than this question - does that matter? Or should this one be the duplicate, because the other one has more answers & votes, or some other reason? – Xen2050 Apr 4 '16 at 18:00

I use nautilus-open-terminal Install nautilus-open-terminal (click to install) from the ubuntu repos (no need to add a ppa!). This adds a "open in terminal" item to the right-click menu in nautilus.

sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal

Afterwards you have to restart nautilus by logging out then back in, or this command:

nautilus -q && nautilus &

You really shouldn't be crashing when using the Open in Terminal extension. There was an issue in 11.10 between it & ubuntuone libs but it was resolved. Are you fully updated?

Anyway this ppa has an excellent Open Terminal Here, it's a nautilus python extension & will work just fine. (There are many other useful extensions, the ppa is well supported & responsive to any issues, none currently

ppa page - https://launchpad.net/~nae-team/+archive/ppa

To add ppa & install the Open Terminal Here extension

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nae-team/ppa

Then

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

Steps:

  1. Download this script file.
  2. Right click in nautilus or on Desktop → Scripts → Scripts folder and extract the downloaded file into this folder.
  3. Close the folder. That's it.
  • What's in the script file(s)? Wouldn't pasting it here be better than a .7z download? – Xen2050 Apr 4 '16 at 18:05
