Beautify the Terminal

Filed under
Software
HowTos

The linux terminal can get boring at times owing to lack of colors & a rigid black background. Hardcore Linux enthusiasts won’t think about the appearance of the terminal but normal users will surely get bored of the monochrome terminal sooner or later. Surprisingly beautifying the terminal is pretty simple & if you are tired of the same old black terminal then you should read ahead. Before proceeding, let me tell you that this guide is not for beautifying the terminal found on server machines (Runlevel 3) or those virtual terminals. This guide is intended to beautify the GNOME Terminal found under the GNOME desktop.

The first step is to launch the terminal offcourse which can be found under Applications>System Tools>Terminal under a GNOME desktop. Once the terminal opens up, head over to Edit>Profile Preferences. A new window should pop-up.

Tizen Development Units now available!

The Linux Foundation have today announced the next round of the Tizen development unit program is now available, with the Intel NUC and Samsung RD-PQ hardware devices being available. The Idea behind this program is to put the required hardware in developers hands so they can develop and test their applications on real hardware. It has to be noted that the Samsung RD-PQ device does not have GSM connectivity, and therefore can not be used as a real world device, which is a pity as developers do need real devices so late in the game.
