I've tried your suggestion, but it doesn't work on my (standard) Ubuntu
installation. Here's the procedure I followed:

>From my original post, right-click on a file in nautilus, then
"Properties", "Open With" to add "gnome-terminal -e vim" (from your
suggestion), then when I select the context menu (right-click on the
file again) and select "Open with gnome-terminal", nothing happens :(

Could you please confirm whether or not it works for you?

Thanks, Dave :-)
