2008.11: terminator is my favourite application
There’s a lot of new applications in 2008.11—
cheese is useful for testing your USB webcam and making self-portraits for avatars and profile pictures and I’m very intrigued by
gobby—but I already have my favourite:
terminator. Here’s a scaled screenshot:
I used to use
ion as my window manager, so getting some tiling back is great. A side effect of those days is that I expect
F2 to start a terminal, which is easy with a little
$ gconftool-2 -s /apps/metacity/global_keybindings/run_command_1 \ -t string 'F2' $ gconftool-2 -s /apps/metacity/keybinding_commands/command_1 \ -t string '/usr/bin/terminator'
There’s a little bug in handling the title bar I’d like to see fixed, but I can ignore that in return for greater terminal density.
Update: Col likes it, too.
