Ubuntu – Add “open in terminal” shortcut


I would like to create a Keyboard shortcut in order to open the terminal when browsing a given folder. I am using nautilus and Ubuntu 12.04.3

If we right click in a folder there is the option "Open in terminal".

I tried by adding in the "System Settings > Keyboard > Shortcut" a new shortcut. As name I put "Open in Terminal" and as command for example I did "Ctrl+Super+t" but it does not work.

The best way I have found to do this without removing my hands from the keyboard:

Most keyboards nowadays have a "right click" key (don't know if it has an official name), located between the right alt and right ctrl, looks like an icon of a menu. Clicking on that opens up the right click menu of the current window (your mouse doesn't have to be in the window itself).

Therefore, the shortcut is Keyboard Right Click Key + E.

BTW, If you don't have a right click button on keyboard, you can right click using: SHIFT+F10, and then press E. Less intuitive, but also works...
