Description Paul Johnson 2005-09-08 10:53:47 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
New users in our lab have a difficult time learning to navigate and get terminals open and it would be very nice to put back the old gnome file manager behavior with "open terminal here".  This could be easily done by packaging just one simple example script in the default .gnome2/nautilus-scripts. I'd suggest this

gnome-terminal &

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. swim around in nautilus
2. try to open a terminal with the current working directory
3. pull out hair while trying to explain this to new users

Additional info:

Please, this is a very simple request and it will make it so much easier to help students switching into Linux/Gnome.
