OS : Fedora 33
Currently, I am at the gnome terminal in the following directory shown in the
Now, I need to open/view the same directory from gnome Files GUI.
Is there a command by which the current directory location is opened in Gnome Files GUI (I think Files used to be called Nautilus) ?
bash: files: command not found...
Similar command is: 'file'
bash: Files: command not found...
Type “nautilus”, it will open files GUI
Thank You Jan Kuparinen.
That partly does what I want.
nautilus command, by default, opens the home directory location in Files GUI (/home/herve)
So, in the gnome terminal, I am at the following location. Any idea if I can open this location in Files (nautilus) GUI ?
Or you can go the other way:
sudo dnf install gnome-terminal-nautilus
nautilus . does the trick.
Thank you Vladislav.
An alternative would be to use
xdg-open, which opens a directory or file in your default apps. The advantage of
xdg-open is that it also handles files in addition to directories.
xdg- is annoying to type every time, I have it aliased to
open on my system, so I use
open . or
open Downloads (or other directories) which opens in Nautilus… as well as
open foo.svg (which opens in Inkscape here),
open file.txt (opens in gedit), etc.
For Nautilus, it does have the same effect as running the commands in the above comments (unless you’re using another desktop with another file manager as your default). However, this lets you have one single command to bridge your terminal to graphical apps.
