Guake, a terminal "top-down" for Gnome

For those who make daily use of the terminal or text console on GNU/Linux, there is nothing better than having to hand the integration of the best possible way to our desk. Users of the Gnome desktop environment Guake have a terminal style " drop-down " or " take off ".

What is this? Simple. Once we run Guake, this is kept hidden until the call by pressing F12, that will be deployed from the top of the screen. I think there is no better way to have at hand the terminal in our system GNU/Linux.

Guake can also use several terminals at once using tabs. It is also possible to configure it to adapt its appearance to your desktop. It has a Preferences menu, where we can change their appearance, keystrokes and adjust to your tastes. Yakuake very similar to the terminal for KDE users.

Installation is very simple. In its official website indicates that packages are available for distributions as Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu and ArchLinux, which can be downloaded from the Downloads section.

Failing that, you can install this terminal from a terminal. Let's look at how.

In Debian/Ubuntu:

  • $ sudo apt-get install guake
In Fedora:
  • $ yum install guake
To enjoy this great terminal.
