Details

Description

nautilus-follow-symlink is a nautilus extension that adds a menu entry on symbolic links to directories which open the pointed directory (the real path).

It does so both when right clicking on a the folder icon or on the contents of an opened symbolic link.

Starting with version 1.2.0, there's also a variant for nautilus' fork caja (released as caja-follow-symlink).
