Robbie Ferguson: But I do want to show you a program called “Terminator” which is a terminal that allows us to use tabs and multi-panes so like honestly if you like me I have tons and tons of terminal windows open during the day. I'm converting videos over here with FFmpeg. I'm editing files over here, renaming files over here. I've got tons of different things going on in terminal so it gets kind of annoying if I have a ton of terminal windows open.
Carrie Webb: So what’s terminal window most likely?
Robbie Ferguson: That’s like this text guy here. This is where all the files are accepting where we speak of computer. It can be a little bit annoying when you’ve got tons of them open and you're not really sure which one is which and you start clicking around and can't find it.
Carrie Webb: Okay.
Robbie Ferguson: So what we want is a program found in Synaptic Package Manager and I won’t go through the installation steps because you know how to do that. It’s under system, administration, Synaptic package manager, and we want to install program called “Terminator”. It’s going to place itself under accessories right below your terminal and this is so cool. It’s exactly the same thing and it looks just the same as what I just brought up, right?
However, we can right click in here and go split horizontal. Now I've got two terminal windows basically within this one window. So then if I'm working up here, let’s say I want to now split this vertically. Now I've got it is set up like that.
Carrie Webb: And it’s all one.
Robbie Ferguson: It’s all one window but I've got a new terminal window here, and one down here and one that I'm working on up here and I keep doing that. Now I can also right click and go open a tab so now I've got a whole new clean slate and I can start splitting this one up as well. So now if I go back and forth, I've got both of those and I can be working on. So it takes the terminal to only one level because it keeps it all within one, nice, clean window so you don’t have to lose track.
Carrie Webb: That’s right. That’s organized.
Robbie Ferguson: It’s very organized and I tend to because I used the cubes so efficiently I've got different terminal windows on different cube faces and that gets confusing if incidentally minimize one. Sometimes I lose track so that is called “Terminator”. You can finf that in Synaptic Package Manager. It’s free for you to download and install your Ubuntu system.
Carrie Webb: And that’s only for Ubuntu.
Robbie Ferguson: Much for Linux. So Linux across the board. I say Ubuntu because a lot of us we’re using it in and I don’t want to start answering questions about a cable YAM and things at that but you can get that in any Linux distribution here as long as it is in their repositories. It is in the Ubuntu repository so we can safely say, “Yeah, go ahead.”
