[TIP] Open Directory In Guake from Thunar

In this article we'll see how to change the working directory in Guake terminal from Thunar's context menu.

Open Directory In Guake from Thunar


Add a custom action in Thunar with the following contents:

  • Name: Open Guake Here
  • Command: guake -n NEW_TAB && guake -e "cd %f" && guake -t
  • File Pattern: *
  • Appears if selection contains: Directories

Note: This UCA has one problem; if Guake is already visible it'll will hide it. That's because of the --toggle-visibility option.
