make terminal open at location you're viewing


Fedora 9
cd'ing one's way to a particular folder in the terminal can be a pain and I read once (somewhere) there's a way to open a terminal window at the location of the window you're viewing, but I can't remember what it was - some kind of key combination or something.
Does anyone know?

In KDE using konqueror, for instance, you can go to the menu "tools"->"open terminal".
That should do the trick. I guess that most file managers for Linux have similar options, if you don't use KDE

In Konqueror you can use F4 too.

It really depends on the file browser that you use.
