For the past several releases the option of opening something in terminal by right clicking on the desktop, a file or a folder has been missing in MATE environment of Linux mint. This has been set by default. However you can enable that functionality by installing a package called caja-open-terminal.

sudo apt-get install caja-open-terminal

After installing the package, you will have “Open in terminal” as one of the options in the context menu when you right click on icons or certain locations.

  1. Thanks! I’m in the process of switching from Cinnamon to Mate, and that was throwing me a bit.
