Open in Terminal -> Terminator

There is a very useful plug-in for nautilus called “nautilus-open-terminal”. One can open a terminal by right-click in any directory opened in nautilus. And immediately, your shell is in that particular directory. By default, the plug-in uses gnome-terminal. If you are using terminator and would like the plug-in to use terminator instead of the default gnome-terminal, just do the following:

#As root
update-alternatives --config x-terminal-emulator

Choose “terminator” when prompted and you are done. Probably a restart of the gdm is required.

#As normal unix user
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.default-applications.terminal exec-arg '-x'
