There may be times when you’re working with files in Ubuntu’s File Browser, Nautilus, and you want to switch to working on the command line in Terminal. Instead of manually navigating to the same folder in Terminal, you can easily jump directly to that folder.
Note: if you use Xubuntu, the option's already there - you don't need to install anything.
(It's called "Open Terminal Here", not "Open in Terminal" - just saying)
Help, I goofed. I typed both lines together, then pressed return. It did something, too fast for me to follow, but it didn't work right (yes, I'm a noob, sorry.) How can I undo what I did?
Clarification for my previous post: I typed "sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal [sudo] password for (my name):", (without quotes and with my actual name) and pressed the return key. I then opened nautilus and right clicked a folder I knew had a file in it. The context menu did not show the expected command. I figured out what I had done wrong, and tried installing in correctly, but the system told me it could not find two packages, I don't remember which two they were. What should I do now?
Don't worry, you haven't done anything wrong. Just open the Terminal again and type the command till -open-terminal (not after that). It'll ask you for your password, enter it (you will not see anything being typed for security reasons, just type it and press Enter) and it'll install.
