Install GTK3 Tiling Terminal Emulator ‘Terminix’ in Ubuntu 16.04

Terminix GTK+3 terminal emulator

Terminix GTK+3 terminal emulator

Terminix is a tiling terminal emulator for Linux using GTK+ 3. It allows splitting terminals horizontally and vertically, with drag and drop re-arranging terminals, and options to save and restore terminal layouts.

The application uses CSD (i.e. the GTK HeaderBar) though it can be disabled if necessary. Other than Gnome, only Unity has been tested officially though users have had success.

Terminix features:

  • Layout terminals in any fashion by splitting them horizontally or vertically
  • Terminals can be re-arranged using drag and drop both within and between windows
  • Terminals can be detached into a new window via drag and drop
  • Input can be synchronized between terminals so commands typed in one terminal are replicated to the others
  • The grouping of terminals can be saved and loaded from disk
  • Terminals support custom titles
  • Color schemes are stored in files and custom color schemes can be created by simply creating a new file
  • Transparent background
  • Background images
  • Automatic (triggered) profile switches based on hostname and directory
  • Supports notifications when processes are completed out of view. Requires the Fedora notification patches for VTE
