Keyboard shortcut for “open a terminal here”

1

How can I create a keyboard shortcut so that when I press F12 in nautilus (or desktop), I get a terminal in the current directory?

Finally figured it out.. first sudo apt-get install dconf-tools nautilus-open-terminal, then run dconf-editor and set the org/gnome/desktop/interface/can-change-accels boolean on. Then open nautilus using this command (to disable Unity global menu Temporarily):

nautilus -q UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0 nautilus

Now you can mouseover the action in the file menu, and change the accel by typing your key while the action is highlighted, finally restart your nautilus. If you don't see Open in terminal in the File menu and you've just installed nautilus-open-terminal, you might need to first run nautilus -q.

Ubuntu 14.04 and up

If you can't find the can-change-accels key in your dconf configuration you can try the following solution:

Stop nautilus by executing nautilus -q

Open ~/.config/nautilus/accels in a text editor...

Edit: Misunderstood the question. To do what you need, please follow this link:

https://askubuntu.com/questions/68078/keyboard-shortcut-for-open-a-terminal-here

You'll need to do some steps of the procedure listed below though.

For ubuntu 16.04, you can run the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository universe sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal sudo apt-get install nautilus-actions

After this, run

nautilus -q

to quit nautilus.

You should now have the right-click open terminal here option.

In computing, a keyboard shortcut is a set of one or more keys that invoke a command in software or an operating system.

They are typically an alternate means for invoking commands that would otherwise be accessible only through a menu, a mouse, or an aspect of the user interface. These shortcuts can expedite common operations by reducing input sequences to a few keystrokes.

These shortcuts can provide an easier and quicker method of using computer programs. These commands are commonly accessed by using the Alt ket (on PC computers), command key (on Apple computers), Ctrl, and Shift in conjunction with a single letter.

These shortcuts are for the following programs and applications.

Word Windows Internet Explorer File Explorer Windows System Commands Firefox Excel Mac Finder...

Works perfectly well as mentioned on microsoft's site https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_vista-desktop/right-click-open-with-command-missing-help-please/a9c3f139-075c-4285-b87d-25e899fb8b27

By design, the Open With menu option is not available when you right-click executable files (.cmd, .bat, .pif, .scf, .exe, .com, or .scr), or shortcuts to executable files.

If you've lost the Open With menu option for ALL file types, including non-executable files, follow this steps:

Click Start, All Programs, Accesories, Notepad.

Copy and paste this text:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Open With] @="{09799AFB-AD67-11d1-ABCD-00C04FC30936}"

Click File, Save As, name the file "OpenWith.reg" (WITH THE QUOTATION MARKS) and click OK.

Now double-click OpenWith.reg, click Continue, Yes, OK, and see if the problem is solved.

Hope it...

Shortcut keys ABCs

Shortcut keys help provide an easier and usually quicker method of navigating and executing commands in computer software programs. Shortcut keys are commonly accessed by using the Alt key (on IBM compatible computers), Command key (on Apple computers), Ctrl key, or Shift key in conjunction with another key. The de facto standard for listing a shortcut is listing the modifier key, a plus symbol, and another key. In other words, "Ctrl+S" is telling you to press and hold the Ctrl key, and then press the S key too.

You can also find the shortcut keys to their most popular program by looking for underlined letters in their menus. For example, the image to the right has an underline on the "F" in File, which means you can press the Alt key and then the "F" key to access the File menu.

Some programs require the user to press and hold Alt to see the underlined characters. In the same image above, you can see that some of the common features, such...

Other Notes

Player

Press and hold Shift to skim - scrub/seek using the horizontal position of the mouse cursor without clicking and dragging.

While dragging shot or trimming, press and hold Alt to temporarily suspend snapping. On Linux, pressing Alt before dragging will usually move the app window; so, press Alt after you start dragging.

Press and hold Shift to skim - scrub/seek using the horizontal position of the mouse cursor without clicking and dragging.

Timecode fields - such as the prominent one at the bottom of the player

do not require you to enter a full timecode value. There are some short-hand ways to enter time values. First of all, a number with no colons (e.g., 100) is a frame number. Remember, frame numbers start at 0; so 100 is the 101-th frame! Including a colon (:) makes it interpret as timecode (HH:MM:SS:FF where FF = frames) or a clock value (HH:MM:SS.MS where MS = milliseconds or any fraction of a second). The difference...

Minor issue, maximizeconsole doesn’t give focus to the terminal as well. I hit my binding, started typing, and the IDE’s autocomplete popped up because the cursor was still active on that particular pane. Is the show(true); helper supposed to handle giving it focus as well?

I created a shortcut for Win-t on Windows and Ctrl-t on Mac. A new Terminal is Alt-t, so changing the modifier seemed nice to me. I haven’t tested Win-t on Windows to know if it’s a system key, or if the Windows key is even able to be trapped. New Tab on Mac browsers is Command-t, and Ctrl-t didn’t do anything pre-save, and worked just fine post-save.

I tested the following procedure under OS X 10.11.3 (El Capitan).

Launch Automator. Create a document of type “Service”. In the document, add a “Run AppleScript” action. Here's the AppleScript to paste into the action:

on run {input, parameters} tell application "Terminal" if it is running then do script "" end if activate end tell end run

Set the “Service receives” popup to “no input”. It should look like this overall:

Save the document with the name “New Terminal”. Then go to the Automator menu (or the app menu in any running application) and open the Services submenu. You should now see the “New Terminal” service:

If you click it, Terminal should open a new window.

To assign a keyboard shortcut to it, choose the “Services Preferences…” item from that menu. (Or launch System Preferences, choose the Keyboard pane, then choose the Shortcuts tab, then choose Services from the left-hand list.) Scroll to the...

I'm not in front of my Mac right now, but I believe that you can trigger a particular action inside of any application by using the following steps, from Apple's support site:

Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, and then click Keyboard.

Click Keyboard Shortcuts, and then click the Add (+) button.

Choose an application from the Application pop-up menu. If you want to set the same key combination for a menu command that appears in many applications, choose All Applications.

If the application you want to select does not appear in the list, choose Other and locate the application using the Open dialog. Some applications may not allow you to set keyboard shortcuts.

Type the menu command for which you want to set a keyboard shortcut in the Menu Title field.

You must type the command exactly as it appears in the application menu, including ellipses and any other punctuation. An ellipsis is a special character that looks like three periods. To...

I had a similar problem and found a solution. The distribution I've got is Linux Mint w/ Cinnamon GUI, which is offered as Debian-based or as Ubuntu-based versions. Mine's the Debian-based version, identified as 201303 presumably for March 2013, at a time when the Ubuntu-based version is named 16 Petra.

Here I went to put a Terminal shortcut, to use Ctrl-Alt-t for the terminal, but I see it's already there in the list from a fresh installation. Yet Ctrl-Alt-t doesn't do anything when I type it. Odd. So that's a dead end.

Going into the file manager worked. Navigate your directories to here:

/usr/share/applications/

and double-click the "keyboard" program in there. You cannot open the program from the command line, you have to be in a graphical file manager. If you were to try opening it from a terminal,...
