Open a Tracker window on the current directory

You can use your choice of Tracker add-ons to quickly open a Terminal on the current Tracker window, but what if you want to go the other way and open a Tracker window on the Terminal’s current directory? There are a number of ways to do this, but the easiest way I’ve found is to add this to /boot/home/.profile:

alias th="/system/Tracker ."

Now all you have to do is type “th” at any time (remember this as Tracker Here) and a Tracker window will instantly display the current directory’s contents.
