How can I make a keyboard shortcut for "Open a terminal here" in Nemo?
I am finding the "Files" manager formerly known as nautilus that comes with Ubuntu 13.04 to be too crippled to bother using anymore, and I have switched to Nemo file manager with good results so far. There's just one thing I'm missing, a customisable keyboard shortcut to Open in Terminal in the current location.
The method that I use for nautilus doesn't work any longer because I have no key for
can-change-accels related to nemo, and neither do I see "Open in Terminal" in the File Menu drop down. It is, however in the right click menu in Nemo.
Look around in the file
~/.gnome2/accels/nemo for a line with 'OpenInTerminal'.
open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and type
OpenInTerminal and edit this line:
; (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/DirViewActions/OpenInTerminal" "")
with shorcut (say
<Alt>t here) and remove the semicolon
(gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/DirViewActions/OpenInTerminal" "<Alt>t")
This will set Alt+T as shortcut for open in terminal.
