    GNOME: Terminal window launcher


    In Konqueror, there is a nifty feature which lets you open a terminal window with the prompt in the current working directory, by pressing F4. Can this be done in Nautilus as well? Or can one make a little script or something that does it? I often find myself at the end of a long tree of folders while browsing with nautilus, wanting to make a quick change to a few files or running a few commands with root permission, and it feels a bit tedious to have to start the terminal and then cd all the way to the right directory. If anyone has any ideas on how to solve this issue, I'd greatly appreciate it!

    gnome comes with gterm..look for it in ur gnome menu

    also, you can get to a shell by hitting ctrl+alt+F1-6 (1,2,3,4,5,6 all open separate shells) but u cant run X applications from it.
