Guake is a top-down terminal for Gnome, in the style of Yakuake for KDE, Tilda or the terminal used in Quake.
Guake’s properties window supports configuring keyboard shortcuts, appearences, main window height, etc. Unfortunately, the width is fixed and maximal.
Guake is available in Ubuntu universe repository.
I have post a tutorial using Compiz to set a transparent terminal window stick on Ubuntu wallpaper, but I failed setting it up in Ubuntu 12.04 Unity. So here’s an alternative for some want a transparent terminal on Ubuntu 12.04 wallpaper using tilda.
Tilda is a highly customizable Linux terminal window.
Talking about Terminal, we have been working on the same default terminal for a long time. Why not change it a little. Keeping this in mind, we have selected two cool alternatives to replace the default Ubuntu terminal for your basic to advanced operations. Both of them are unique in their own way and serve the main stream purposes as well as some special purposes.
I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 with the awesome window manager.
I've been playing around with adding new fonts and getting a nice color scheme to work but now the tidal key doesn't work in terminal. It works in gedit and other applications (example ~~~~~~~~~) but in terminal and subsequently <strike>vim</strike> I can't use it.
I'm using Tilda as a terminal but for the life of me I cannot get it to run at startup. I've added:##tilda terminaltilda &to the autostart file but it still doesn't work. Is there something I'm missing or are there other files that I need to be editing?
Reading any data in unicode does not display correctly in the linux terminal (meaning the virtual terminal that opens without an X windows).
I read in a discussion here that installing programs such as jfbterm, and it does work, so I was wondering if there isn't any way to configure (consolefonts?) the terminal to properly handle unicode without any extra software.
I am using a terminal emulator library to create a terminal and then I use it to send the data entered over serial to a serial device. The library can be seen here: https://github.com/jackpal/Android-Terminal-Emulator/tree/master/librari...
When I enter data into the terminal a strange series of characters is being sent/received.
