Install tilda (pop-up terminal) on Xubuntu

Tilda is a terminal emulator that can be accessed using one keystroke, popping-up like a Quake terminal.

Install

Open a terminal window and run:
sudo apt-get install tilda

Run

Hit Alt+F2 and type: tilda.
Once tilda is running, hit F1 to open the terminal pop-up.

Suggestions

  1. Add tilda to startup and type this as the command: tilda -h
  2. Open a new tab hitting Ctrl+Shift+T and change tabs using Ctrl+PageUp/Ctrl+PageDown
  3. If you like the wallpaper, check out: Wilson's Sketch Blog

  2. Nice, I have used Guake on GNOME, didn't know Tilda worked so well within XFCE, thanks for the "-h" tipo on adding it to the session.

    Nice site by the way. :)
