Nautilus Terminal

Interviews

If you’re a Gnome user and have watched with envy as your KDE4-using friends effortlessly open a terminal directly in their file-browser, you may be interested in Nautilus Terminal.

Fabien Loison is behind Nautilus Terminal. I asked him a little about the project.

Matthew: What were you doing when you realised that life would be easier if you had a terminal in Nautilus?

Fabien: I was programming and I had a lot terminals open on different folders. I realized I was losing a lot of time to find the one I wanted, and then I remembered that Midnight Commander has an interesting feature: it permits you to enter commands in the current folder. I searched on the web and saw that (KDE 4’s file manager) Dolphin offers this kind of functionality, but nothing about Nautilus… So I decided to do it myself: I started programming Nautilus Terminal.

Matthew: And are you happy with the result?
