A week ago I discovered Terminator. It has mostly solved an ongoing frustration I’ve had with how to structure all my
gnome-terminal windows. A great getting started guide is here: http://maketecheasier.com/maximize-your-terminal-usage-with-terminator/2008/12/21.
The only drawback I’ve found to it so far is that it does not have (or I cannot find) the built in S/KEY integration that
gnome-terminal has which allows you to control-click on the challenge string and enter your password. I also wish there was some way to attach to a complete
terminator session like
screen allows. Given the choice between using
terminator for multiple screens in the same window, terminator wins hands down for me because it requires a fraction of the keystrokes and provides pleasant scroll bars.
