[HOW TO] Install Guake (Quake-like terminal) in Xubuntu
Some time ago I wrote about installing Tilda in Xubuntu. Now I gave Guake a try (another terminal that slides in from the top of the screen).
There are some reasons for liking Guake better:
- The width is set to 100% (Tilda has some problems when changing monitors).
- The height can be adjusted with the mouse.
- All key bindings can be customized.
- The tab bar is quite useful and it's easy to rename tabs.
Tilda is still a good program, though, so if you're undecided give them both a try and see which suits you best.
Open a terminal window and run:
sudo apt-get install guake -y
Guake can be accessed via Applications Menu > Accessories > Guake Terminal or typing the following command:
guake. Guake's preferences editor can be directly accessed using the command:
guake-prefs or you can right-click on Guake and select Preferences.
