Adding Terminal Option to Right Click On Desktop
I like how CentOS and pretty much any Linux distro I can right-click anywhere on the desktop, and have the option to open a terminal. Is there a way to add this option to the Mac OS right click menu option repertoire? I know this may not be in the right place, but this seems to be the Linux expert forum for Mac.
Why not just pin the terminal program to the dock? Then just click the dock icon.
You could also add X11 to the dock if you have the xcode tools installed to run a true x11 terminal.
Lastly there is this nifty program
Download ShellHere 1.0.5 Free - Open a new Terminal window from Finder - Softpedia
which will open a terminal in the directory that your finder is currently in.
I don't know if there is a way to add it as a right click option.
Truthfully in Linux I used a Quicksilver clone to launch everything - on Mac Quicksilver is how I launch everything
You can use Automator to do this. Open Automator, then select New Service. Add to the workflow the item "Run Applescript." In the box, type the following code:
tell Application "Terminal"
make new document
Then save this service as "Open new Terminal Window".
Now when you right click, voilą!
