Last commit: [66f15a43] places-with-terminal@mtwebster: remove gksudo (#3431)

Access your places and bookmarks, or launch a terminal at that location



This is a Cinnamon applet, which lets you access your places and bookmarks through an icon in the cinnamon panel, as well as launch a terminal in those locations.

Left-clicking the item will open the corresponding folder for that item. Left-clicking the terminal icon next to that item will launch a terminal in that location.


1) Copy the folder "places-with-terminal@mtwebster" to "~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/".

2) Enable the applet in cinnamon settings.

This is a heavily modified version of the applet '' - I've merely added the ability to launch a terminal.

The directory `.local` is a hidden directory in your home directory.

The 'File System' command in this applet won't launch Nemo in Linux Mint 19, because it's trying to use the 'gksudo' command. That app was removed from Mint and at least some other Debian-based distros because it opens security risks. It also has been unmaintained for years. There's no reason this applet should be trying to launch the file browser with elevated privileges anyway. This is the only command on the applet that does so, and it doesn't mention that it is doing so.
