I've been searching for how to do this for quite some time and can't find an answer. I'm new to UNIX environments in general so excuse my ignorance.
I'm watching a screencast on Rails and in OSX it seems that from a terminal window, you can type "mate ." to open the current directory in TextMate. When I attempt a similar approach with gedit, "gedit .", gedit opens but gives an error stating that I attempted to open a folder rather than a file (duh). I have the Gedit file browser plugin enabled, and I can press F9 to toggle it, but I can't seem to open a directory using Gedit from the terminal.
Any help would be appreciated, and sorry if this is a silly question.
