In this tutorial I will be showing you how to enable right click on the desktop to open the terminal. We can do this by clicking in te top button on the left saying ‘Dash Home’ and typing in ‘Terminal’.

Once open, we will need to type in

sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal

You will need to then enter in your password. It will then download from the server and install. You can now go to the top right and click shut down and then reboot. You should now be able to right click the desktop and open the terminal after you login.
