How To Open Terminal In A Very Easy Way In Ubuntu

Becoming a linux ninja means no free time! You have to sacrifise pretty much everything and try new tips everyday. In this article we will teach you how to open your terminal from nautilus by right clicking inside a directory or inside the Desktop.

What do we need to do?

We need a very simple shell script with two lines of code and then we should place it inside /home/username/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/ directory in order for the script to be found by Nautilus. Open a new terminal (CTRL+ALT+T) and cd to the following directory.

cd /home/oltjano/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/

Note: Make sure to replace oltjano with your username!

Open a new file with your favourite text editor and put the following code in it.

#!/bin/sh
gnome-terminal

Save the file and mark it as executeable with the following command.

chmod +x name_of_the_script_here
