Install Final Term Terminal in Ubuntu 14.04

Final Term is a new breed of terminal emulator. It goes beyond mere emulation and understands what is happening inside the shell it is hosting. This allows it to offer features no other terminal can.

Semantic text menus: Final Term knows which pieces of terminal output represent filenames, PIDs, web URLs or IP addresses and provides context-aware commands for each of them. New semantic menus can be added effortlessly with a powerful yet simple text file-based plug-in system — no programming required


Smart command completion: Final Term knows when it is displaying a command prompt to you, and it knows all the commands that you ever entered. The moment you start typing, suggestions from your terminal history automatically pop up — lightning fast and sorted by an algorithm that ensures what you want to type is almost always right at the top.


GUI terminal controls: Final Term lets you collapse command output much like a programmer’s editor lets you fold code. Final Term recognizes “ASCII art scrollbars” in the output of supported programs like wget and displays matching GUI scrollbars, allowing you to monitor progress while the output is scrolled away
