Thread: Opening Terminal when viewing a folder

  1. #1

    Question Opening Terminal when viewing a folder

    I used to be able to open a terminal when viewing a folder and the terminal would automatically be in that directory so all I would have to do is type the command.
    Now, it doesn't seem to work like that. No matter what folder I'm viewing within Konquerer or Dolphin, the terminal is always at the /home folder no matter what.

    Can I change this behavior and set it to the way it used to work on my old system? (SuSE 10.0)

    So, I gave this a try using openSUSE 11.2/KDE 4.4.4 and on both Dolphin and Konquerer, a new terminal session using Konsole does open up in the default folder being viewed. Perhaps you need to mention the openSUSE version and desktop version. It could be a bug fixed in the latest versions you are not using.

    Thank You,

    Also, if you right click on a folder and go to Actions there's an option to Open terminal here.
