Question Starting terminal from nautilus at selected directory

I would like to be able to launch a shell terminal window that starts in the directory I select in nautilus.

In windows it's a real simple .inf file called "Command Prompt Here". It is installed with XP.
I have tried adding a custom viewer directories that runs bash but it seems to run a bash window which goes away immedaitely.

Anyone got a tip. This seems like a real intuitive feature that should be automatically installed with linux. More so than windows.

I have been trying file associations and realized there doesn't seem to be a way to delete actions. All I could do was delete the mime type and recreate.

Isn't there a better way?
