I often use a terminal window and normally i press Ctrl+Alt+T to open it and to go to the folder i use the cd command to change into the needed directory.
But wouldn’t it be a lot easier to open a terminal in the folder using one right mouse click and select the option in the file menu? Yes it is!! And here is a guide how to get the open in terminal option in your file menu.
You can enable this option using the dconf-editor tool but first you need to install the nautilus-open-terminal package, to do this open a terminal window (press Ctrl+Alt+T) and copy+paste the following line:
sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal -y
When installed you can close the terminal window, and to start the dconf editor press the SuperKey and type: dconf editor
To enable the Open in Terminal option follow these steps:
Click on org
Click on gnome
Click on desktop
Click on Interface
When done you can close the dconf editor tool and you need to restart nautilus. To restart nautilus open a terminal window (press Ctrl+Alt+T) and copy+paste the following line:
When nautilus is restarted close the terminal window and from now on if you want to open a file/folder in a terminal window you can do it by clicking on the file/folder with your right mouse button and select the option in the file menu.
