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?

Yet, Firefox OS still leads the way among upstart, Linux-based mobile operating systems, and will soon be available in more than 40 markets, this year, on a total of 17 smartphones, according to its latest stats. Meanwhile, the very first Tizen (Samsung Z1) and Ubuntu (BQ Aquaris E4.5) phones have only just shipped, and Jolla’s Sailfish OS based Jolla phones are still mostly limited to Europe. Read more
