This is an introduction to a package i feel most useful for me. nautilus-open-terminal. The package nautilus-open-terminal does just what you might guess it does. It allows you to launch a gnome-terminal whereever you want by a right-click within that folder..
Package description says: "nautilus-open-terminal is a proof-of-concept Nautilus extension
which allows you to open a terminal in arbitrary local folders."

To install:
sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal
And then restart nautilus(First quit nautilus using nautilus -q and press ALT+F2 and type nautilus ).
Afterwards you’ll have a “open terminal” button on your right-click menu anywhere within nautilus or gnome-desktop area. Enjoy.
