Red face Open folder in terminal


When you are in Nautilus, can you right-click a folder and choose to open it in terminal?
In Ubuntu, I can't do it, any idea?

Using the File menu you can Open in Terminal

Under the file menu there is a choice for open in Teminal. I would venture a guess that there is an action or one could be created for the right click option. Just never tried it. Using v.2.30.1 in LDME.

Not there,
you can choose open with Other Applications, but Terminal is not one of the choices.

That's why I listed my version and OS

I guess Mint puts it in there. You might want to explore Nautilus-Actions too. Sorry for the mis-lead I have not used Ubuntu in a while.
