How to Restore “Open Terminal” – Gnome Changes September 9, 2005

Posted by Carthik in ubuntu.

Yes, as promised at inception, Ubuntu is going to include the latest version of Gnome (that will be 2.12) with the next release, Breezy Badger, due out in October.

This version of Gnome has a couple of notable changes. One which will affect Ubuntu users, and one which will not.

I don’t know how you see it, but I see the removal of “Open Terminal” option from the right click on the nautilus desktop as a heinous move! You can install this third party plugin, or get the script to do this once you are on Breezy. (Thanks OSNews.com)

The other change, that does not really impact Ubuntu users is that the new Gnome will ship with a new default theme. Clearlooks is the chosen theme. I learnt from the admin dashboard of this blog that the creator of this theme has recently started using WordPress – what a coincidence. The Dashboard at WP.com rocks!

rcconf appears to be a weak tool. I’m trying to remove gdm from the startup, but it doesn’t even show it as an option – yet the gdm scripts are there in the /etc/rc.* directories. bum at least show gdm, and offers to change its runlevel priority, but doesn’t seem to offer an option to simply remove its startup scripts. Debian must have a real tool for this somewhere, right? Or does it try to stop users from really controlling their systems – or is it just Ubuntu that’s like this?
