Cool Tool: Drop-down terminal for Linux is available in Ubuntu

Tectonic wrote a story about Tilda, it made me curious, so I checked if Ubuntu had it available, and it did , its in the universe repository.

sudo apt-get install tilda

It has nice features like transparency making it look kinda cool on your desktop, the F1 button lets Tilda scroll up and/or down, its a must have app for the command line user on Gnome and XFCE4.

For KDE there is Yakuake, similar application available in universe for kubuntu:

sudo apt-get install yakuake.

Some reads:

  1. I tried Yakuake on Feisty Fawn 7.04 on my notebook and the graphics are buggy, some kind of “infinite mirror” effect. Anyway I had to remove it.

    Tilda works fine for now.
