One irritating thing is when you open the fileexplorer in Ubuntu, and quickly would like to open a terminal, and do some commands, without having to resort to walking down the filestructure in the terminal first. There’s an easy solution:
Install the ‘nautilus-open-terminal’ plugin from either Ubuntu software center, or by doing a sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal in a terminal.
Don’t forget to restart nautilus (sudo killall nautilus) after installation for the changes to take effect ( or logout/login again).
Voila, now you have a menu option called ‘Open in terminal’ whenever you rightclick on something in nautilus.
