Thunar and nautilus-terminal

Hello:

One of the things (the only one, actually) that I miss from my days with Ubuntu is the drop down terminal you could have in Nautilus.

It's the Xfce drop down teminal (which is just like Tilda and others) but with the distinct advantage of being embedded into Nautilus' tabs/windows, following the navigation.
Much better than the open terminal here or open root terminal here custom actions. 

Synaptic in ASCII has a long list of nautilus packages but nautilus-terminal is not one of them.

Any one know if there's something like this for Thunar?

Cheers,

A.

Re: Thunar and nautilus-terminal

Muito obrigado.
Mas eu já tenho tudo isso (custom actions) habilitado em Thunar.
O que o plug-in do nautilus-terminal faz no Nautilus aparentemente não é possível fazer em Thunar.

Thank you.
But I already have all that (custom actions) enabled in Thunar.
What the nautilus-terminal does in Nautilus apparently in not possible in Thunar.

AQ.

I dont use Nautilus, but this feature seems to me similar to the embedded terminal I use in Dolphin.

May be we could write this feature in the "wish list" of Thunar.

I think it has exactly the same functionality but it is directly built into Dolphin. 
Very useful.

Ahhh ...
Yes, we could.

But don't hold your breath, it would probably go nowhere, fast.

Only "open terminal here" is supported. There are other, more complicated file managers that provide what you want, but thunar does not.

It reads sort of like take it or leave it to me.

Cheers,

Thank you for your link. It is very informative.

It is very clear to me that free software needs more humanpower. Proprietary software firms pay their employees to do boring work; we dont.

I would write the required Thunar feature myself. Just waiting to reborn and have more lives to live; everybody is busy with their own staff. No regrets, this is real life.

You're welcome.

One would tend to, at first sight, agree.
But I have come to think that, to quote George and Ira Gershwin in Porgy and Bess, "It ain't necessarily so."
I have the notion that what is needed is something else and manpower may not be the problem.

A bit OT, but just a few lines:

It seems that it's not possible (and probably won't ever be) to harness the creative work of the countless thousands of programmers, developers and contributors dedicated to this fantastic project started by Linus Torvalds in a way that that they just work together and come up with just 'one' 100% functional and scalable 'distro' instead of generating gadzillionz different flavours, forks of whatever is available out there.

One of the (few) negatives of open source and free licensing is that forking projects just for the sake of having their own project - "look Ma! I rolled my own distro!!!!" - has almost become the norm.

It is highly counter-productive and there is no logical reason for it.

If you do, I'll gradly do the testing.
