Install Terminator – Manage Multiple Terminal Windows

Terminator is a GPL terminal emulator. This program was inspired by programs such as gnome-multi-term, quadkonsole, etc. in that the main focus is arranging terminals in grids (tabs is the most common default method, which Terminator also supports). Users can have multiple terminals (tabs) in one window and use key bindings to switch between them.
  • Arrange terminals in a grid
  • Tabs
  • Drag and drop re-ordering of terminals
  • Lots of keyboard shortcuts
  • Save multiple layouts and profiles via GUI preferences editor
  • Simultaneous typing to arbitrary groups of terminals
  • and lots more…
