'Open in Terminal' command to Nautilus Context menu in Ubuntu 11.10

Sometimes we just wonder if we could open a folder graphically into terminal and ofcourse it is also possible in Ubuntu. Though not many people prefer this feature but it may seem to be helpful and handy.

Here's how it is done.

Open up a terminal and the below mentioned command
# sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal

This will install the package for the feature to be activated and then you have to reset the nautilus file browser.
# nautilus -q

That is it and we are done with it. Now try opening your home folder or any folder by right-clicking on it and select 'Open in Terminal'.
