Console Emulation for Gnome

February 24th, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Once upon a time I used KDE. It was a nice and peaceful time of adventures and magic until the eldritch demons ‘eye-candy’ and ‘feature-delusion’ brought terror and doom. Many of us fled into the wastelands of the Gnome, looking for salvation. It was a life of privation on a better path of desktop environments. Often I found myself looking back to a nice tool called Yakuake, allowing me to show and hide a terminal on every desktop by a single key-stroke; what a powerful magic it was… But prayers didn’t remain unheard and Tilda (‘first person shooter console likeness terminal’, Tilda manpage) was forged be the almighty GTK (2.x).

    Guake has been around for years, y’know?

    Yes, but was some kind of buggy and didn’t work for me.

    Guake is a pile of crap. You cannot even do basic things like reorder your tabs.

    How did you put together that sweet color scheme in Tilda ?
