For those who are new to Linux Operating system (an open-source and mostly POSIX-compliant operating system modelled on UNIX, assembled under free and open-source software development model), may found difficulty in navigate to directories via Linux terminal.

You can install nautilus-open-terminal to open the directory in terminal, if you are using nautilus, which is the default file manager.

To install nautilus-open-terminal, follow the steps below.

  • Open the terminal.
  • Type the following command.
    sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal
  • After installation you can verify the right click option. You will be able to see an option 'Open in Terminal'.
  • If you couldn't find a new option 'Open in Terminal', type
    nautilus -q && nautilus &

    to quit the file manager, nautilus and reopen it.

  • Right click on any directory, and you are done!!!
  • You can also kill the nautilus instead of logout and log in back, using
    sudo killall -9 nautilus

Hope this helps!

The command "setfacl" refers to Set File Access Control Lists and "getfacl" refers to Get File Access Control List. Each file and directory in a Linux filesystem is created with a specific set of file permissions for its access. Each user can have different set of file access permissions. The permissions can be set using the setfacl utility. In order to know the access permissions of a file or directory we use getfacl. The getfacl command displays the access permissions of files and directories with file name, owner, group and the ACL's(Access Control List). When we create a directory it is created with a default set of access permissions and by using getfacl we will be able to see the access rights.
