there is no a selection button for opening terminal when I right click in downloads folder.why?
when I try to get access to downloads folder,its what is shown:
Code:
ehsan@Ehsan:~$ cd /
ehsan@Ehsan:/$ cd home
ehsan@Ehsan:/home$ cd downloads
bash: cd: downloads: No such file or directory
ehsan@Ehsan:/home$ cd Downloads
bash: cd: Downloads: No such file or directory

Either:
Code:
cd
cd Downloads
or (rough guess)

Code:
cd /
cd home/ehsan/Downloads
Rememeber to use tab to autocomplete and ls to see the files and folders.

Hi Pablo,
why there is not terminal in the list when right click in a folder in 12.04 like 11.10 I had before?

You probably don't have it installed. It is easy to google that:

Code:
sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal
nautilus -q

thanks dear Pablo,it resolved,
I have installed 12.04 last night and it has some problems in installing softwares,for example pidgin doesn't install by this error:
Code:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:

pidgin: Depends: libxss1 but it is not going to be installed
        Depends: perlapi-5.14.2 but it is a virtual package
how can install dependencies and introduce repositories to Ubuntu?is there a list of suitable repositories?

Greetings to all!

OK, I finally figured out what on Earth is going on. The file "/etc/apt/sources.list" has got the following default content:
Code:
# /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise main restricted
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise-security main restricted
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise-updates main restricted
But this only provides a very limited list of packages.

To get access to all of the ones available to Ubuntu, append to each line "universe multiverse":
Code:
# /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise-updates main restricted universe multiverse
Then run:
Code:
sudo apt-get update
And you're good to go!

Best regards,
Bruno
