Add “open terminal here” in Gnome Files on Ubuntu Budgie 18.04

30 Aug

The distribution I currently used is shipped with Tuxedo computers and is based on Ubuntu Budgie 18.04. The thing that I missed the most when I started using it was the right-click menu item to “Open terminal here” in Gnome Files (version 3.26.3 at the time of writing).

Tilix is the default terminal on this distribution, but it does no matter which one you use. To add an extra right-click menu item to open your default terminal in the current directory, you can open the Software app and search for “Nautilus” (which is the other name of Gnome Files; check that it is indeed marked as “installed”) and tick the add-on called “Terminal plugin for Files“.

You shouldn’t need to log out and back in to see the change: right-clicking inside a directory should now offer the option “Open Tilix Here”.
