Open in terminal menu for Ubuntu

Back when I used Windows, on e of my first modification would be to install Windows power toys and get the “Open command prompt here” right click menu working. Occasionally, I find this could be useful in Ubuntu when using Nautilus (the default file manager).

By default, a right click option for this does not exist. But like most things in Ubuntu, it is simple to add:

  1. Open your terminal and type: `sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal`
  2. Close all open sessions of Nautilus by typing `nautilus -q`
  3. Open Nautilus and right click somewhere. You now have an “open in terminal” option.
