I need a more robust Terminal emulator, hence Tilix. However, I miss the option to open the terminal in the chosen directory under pantheon-files. Is it possible to add a contractor so to achieve this result?

Place the script in 'usr/share/applications', now it should be listed in 'open in > Other Application..' in the context menu, if not then restart and check if it appears, here's a screenshot after placing the script in the correct location.

Did you try the sub menu 'open in' in pantheon on a directory and choose 'terminal'?

  • Tilix is not showing up in the open as list.
