If you are one (like myself) who
- works on Linux - using especially command-line tools
- does coding and sysadmin tasks
- wants a tool for arranging as many terminals as possible on the screen
then Gnome Terminator is the program you probably need.
Install Terminator package in Ubuntu (or Debian)
Terminator is now a native package of Debian and Ubuntu
$ sudo apt-get install terminator
Notice that this may be not the most recent version.
Install Terminator using Ubuntu PPA
You may get the very latest Terminator from Ubuntu PPA:
$ sudo add apt-repository ppa:gnome-terminator $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install terminator
Run Terminator inside a container
You may also choose run Terminator inside a Docker container.
I will explore this option in a future post. Stay tuned!
