Expert tricks for Nautilus

A couple of notes.
You don't need to restart the X server. Just do
killall -s TERM nautilus
Gnome will make sure that nautilus restarts on Your desktop.
Last time I tried the nautilus open terminal extension, I noticed that it does not handle spaces or pluses or any other characters that nautilus uses %codes for. So I wrote my own open terminal nautilus script.
Get it from
Right now it opens gnome-terminal in either the currently browsed dir (if nothing is selected) or in the selected directory, if a directory is selected. Put this into $HOME/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/. and it will show up in a menu called "scripts" in the right-click menu in nautilus.
The script currently handles pluses and spaces in the path.
