Been testing out Ubuntu 15.04 on my laptop. I noticed that right click menu (when right clicked on desktop or in the file manager) has open in terminal. But when I choose, not matter what directory I am in, the terminal open in my root home directory.


Install the package nautilus-open-terminal:

sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal

The bad news is that you will have two options now in your right-click menu. The good news is that one of them works.

  • No way to remove the non-working option? – Sir_FZ Jul 3 '15 at 14:47
  • @Sir_FZ yes, you can remove (be sure to back up) the following file: /usr/lib/nautilus/extensions-3.0/libterminal-nautilus.so. I did not recommend it because Im not sure how safe it is to manually remove the file. After removing though, you might need to restart. – Xu Wang Jul 3 '15 at 15:22
