"Open terminal here" on folder [Ubuntu / Fedora]

If you use Linux as an advanced user, many times you will need to go to a directory on the terminal.

On this tutorial, I’ll show a plugin to GNOME Files to open the terminal from a graphical interface.

What is GNOME Files?

“GNOME Files, formerly called Nautilus, is the official file manager for the GNOME desktop. The name is a play on words, evoking the shell of a nautilus to represent an operating system shell.” – Wikipedia

It’s the default file manager on Ubuntu and other distros.

How to install?

To install, just run the following line. Just pay attention if you are using a Ubuntu or Fedora based distribution.

Requirements: the GNOME Files as the main file manager.

 # For Ubuntu and Debian distributions  
 sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal 
 # For Fedora distributions  
 su -c "dnf install nautilus-open-terminal"  

How to use “Open terminal here”?

Just go to your file manager, browse to a diretory and click with right button:

Abrir terminal aqui

Ah, my Fedora language was setted to Brazillian Portuguese. The “Abrir no terminal” mean “Open on terminal” or “Open terminal here”.

And that’s it.


If you have any questions, just leave the comments below. I’ll try to help you as best I can. ^^
