Open Terminator From Nautilus

| Comments

This is just a little trick to get the ability to open a Terminator terminal at any location from Nautilus by right clicking on a folder.

First install the dependencies:

sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal terminator

Next, uninstall gnome-terminal:

sudo apt-get remove gnome-terminal

Finally, create a symlink to terminator from gnome-terminal:

sudo ln -s /usr/bin/terminator /usr/bin/gnome-terminal

All done! Now you can right click on any folder in Nautilus and open a terminator window.
The reason the symlink is needed is because nautilus-open-terminal is hardcoded to use gnome-terminal by default, but terminator is much better.
