install a new terminal emulator it’s something we’ve covered on other occasions in Ubunlog. Whether it’s a drop-down like Tilda, one for advanced users like Terminator, or one for the nostalgic ’80s like Cool Retro Term, each of them can take place on your computer at one time or another.
We ourselves have already recommended some of the above, but this time we will talk about another emulator that also appears in Deepin, one of the distros Ubuntu-based visually more appealing things we’ve had a chance to try. How could it be otherwise, we are talking about Deepin Terminal Emulator.
This program has been developed by the Deepin team with the intention of positioning itself as one next generation terminal, And tries to improve the user experience through the text interface. This is a program written in Python that was initially designed exclusively for Deepin, but thanks to the team responsible for Noobslab we will be able to install on Ubuntu and Linux Mint.
The Deepin terminal emulator has features such as vertical splitting and horizontal, terminal workspace changer, transparent background with the ability to personalize it, SSH connections, resize fonts, customizable keyboard shortcuts, quick access to the most important options by right-clicking on the screen, possibility to have the terminal in full screen and much more. You can also customize the look of the terminal with skins.
Deepin Terminal Emulator is installed through a PPA, Which means you will need to add it, resynchronize the repositories, and finally install the program. To do this, open a terminal and enter the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/deepin-sc sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install deepin-terminal
It is worth noting that a good number of Deepin dependencies will be installed, But from the experience we had while testing it there was no problem during its execution.
