I recently came across a YouTube video showing the power of the terminal application on Ubuntu Touch mobile phone. What strikes my attention is the ability to run commands as we do on the desktop version to installation applications – like my favorite command which is ‘apt-get install xxxxxxx’.
So I tried imagining how much power is at my disposal in changing the looks and feel of my Ubuntu Touch UI to anything I want – I meant if this is actually feasible with the Touch Terminal. According to the latest information from the Touch Team, this is still work in progress and the app design is currently undergoing a refresh to provide converged layouts for both the tablets and desktops.
The video shows Ubuntu Touch Terminal running on Ubuntu Desktop 14.04 for this demonstration, but the application is the same on an actual Ubuntu Touch Device
