Getting to terminal from within a window.


Hi,

Is there any shortcut to get to the terminal prompt from within a window? For instance, if I browse through my folders in GUI until I find the folder I want and then I would like to get the terminal window with the prompt located in that folder.

Something like:

/home/user/folder$>

Thanks,
Glore2002.-

Most file browsers, nautilus excluded, can do that if you press F4 (konqueror, dolphin, pcmanfm etc).

For nautilus there is the nautilus-open-terminal package/plugin that does just that, but its located on your right click.

nautilus-open-terminal is a proof-of-concept Nautilus extension
which allows you to open a terminal in arbitrary local folders.

You can even get a browser with terminal intagrated, so when you browse you have a terminal below every time. =)

Open konqueror or dolphin and press F4 to see how it is.

I am on gnome now so I can't take a pic.
(I really hate it when i look around for relevant pics and I can't find even ONE)

---edit
This is what I am talking about

nautilus-actions is a very flexible tool, easily allowing a superset of open-in-terminal's facilities and thus obsoleting open-in-terminal except for very basic functionality. Only gotcha is that you may have to logout and back in before the first nautilus-actions action is effective.

Thanks to you all.

nautilus-actions was the one that worked for me. I was looking for something like F4 but, as you said, it doesn't work with Nautilus. Nautilus-actions is a valid alternative too.

Thanks again,

Glore2002.-
