Red Hat Training

A Red Hat training course is available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux

5.5. Nautilus

The nautilus-open-terminal package provides a right-click Open Terminal option to open a new terminal window in the current directory. Previously, when this option was chosen from the Desktop, the new terminal window location defaulted to the user's home directory. However, in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, the default behavior opens the Desktop directory (i.e ~/Desktop/). To enable the previous behavior, use the following command to set the desktop_opens_home_dir GConf Boolean to true:
gconftool-2 -s /apps/nautilus-open-terminal/desktop_opens_dir --type=bool true
