LXTerminal 0.2.0

by Fred Chien

LXTerminal is a tiny piece of software that provides users with a full featured, yet lightweight terminal emulator program the runs on top of the X Window System. It is usually distributed along with the LXDE desktop environment.

Features at a glance

Key features include support for multiple tabs, independent from external applications (the only required package is VTE), small memory footprint, support for UNIX-socket instead of D-Bus, process sharing between all instances, modern and easy-to-use graphical user interface with lots of functions.

Modern and familiar GUI

The application's graphical user interface is written with the help of the well known GTK+ GUI toolkit, which means that it can be used on any other desktop environment that natively supports GTK+, such as GNOME, MATE, Cinnamon, and many others.

At a first glance, LXTerminal  looks like the highly acclaimed GNOME Terminal application, but with fewer functions. It features a right-click context menu from where users can quickly open a new window or a new tab, as well as to access the program's preferences.

In addition, it comes with some unique features, such as the ability to rename a tab to whatever you want, easy navigation between tabs with the aid of a mouse, as well as the ability to move tabs to left or right. It is also possible to copy and paste text.

From the Preferences dialog, users can change the terminal font style, background and foreground color, enable audible bell and bold font, enable or disable cursor blink, change the cursor style, hide the scroll bar, menu bar and close buttons, as well as to set up the panel's position and scrollback lines.

Bottom line

In conclusion, LXTerminal is a great terminal emulator that can be used on any open source desktop environment, yet specifically designed for LXDE (Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment). It has only a handful of features, but it does the job very well.
