Ubuntu – Lost “Open terminal here” on upgrade from Kubuntu 14.10 to 15.04

command linedolphinkubuntu

In Kubuntu 14.10, the option "Open terminal here" was available in Dolphin's Actions menu. When I upgraded to Kubuntu 15.04, this option disappeared. How can it be restored?

  • KF5 Service Menus

    The Kubuntu 15.04 is a hybrid system. There are KDE4 applications and there are new KF5 applications.The KDE4 parts are looking the service menus from:

    ~/.kde/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/ and /usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/

    The new KF5 service menus are at:

    ~/.local/share/kservices5/ServiceMenus/ and /usr/share/kservices5/ServiceMenus/

    To get the KF5 service menus to the KDE4 applications the KF5 service menu directory can be linked to the KDE4 directory.

    ..and there are the KF5 service menus with the Dolphin (KDE4).
