Install Terminator – Multiple GNOME terminals in one window

Terminator is a program that allows users to set up flexible arrangements of GNOME terminals. It is aimed at those who normally arrange lots of terminals near each other, but don’t want to use a frame based window manager.


  • Multiple Terminals in one window
  • Works with your default shell (Bash/zsh/etc)
  • Colored active and inactive terminal title backgrounds.
