Question Does anyone know about a terminal with multiple tabs on single screen?


Hi,

What I am looking for is a terminal with multiple terminal instances on a single screen... like four divisions, each a separate terminal :-

something like that?

something else I personally would find useful is something like this:-

Any help with finding anything like the above would be greatly appreciated.. These ideas have really captured my imagination for quite a while....

Cheers & thanks.

Konsole also offers a tabbed interface. By default, the tabs are at the bottom. I always move them to the top, where they are meant to be.

You can have tabs in basically any terminal, if you use tmux or screen. If your terminal is compatible with the Xembed protocol you can also use tabbed to get tabs.

Hey.. I had put up a write up of what I was looking for, but its not there.. strange.

Anyhow, thanks for your replies. But what I am looking for isnnt quite a tabbed interface.

What I seek is something with 4 terminals, for example, on a single screen.. like so:-

----------------
|...1...|...2...|
-----------------
|...3...|...4...|
-----------------

While on the subject, does anyone know of any software which offers the following intermingled interface between a file browser and a terminal?

--------------------
|...file browser...|
--------------------
|....terminal......|
--------------------

Thanks again. Cheers.

Thank you so much!

EDIT:

Would you know anything about any software that offers this:-
--------------------
|...file browser...|
--------------------
|....terminal......|
--------------------

??

Or whether there would be any major/obvious hurdles to build such an interface?

You are very welcome.

KDE's Dolphin filemanager has an option to embed Konsole, KDE's terminal: http://slackeee.de/stuff/dolphin_konsole.png
Tiling a terminal display like you have described can also be done with any terminal, using tmux.

When tiling applications is something you want to do maybe also have a look at the tiling window managers, like i3, Awesome, Xmonad, wmii, ... .

i do NOT follow ...

you can open 4 terminals easily, and place them using X11 Xt wrapper commands (the -geom commandine every Xt application accepts)

what is special about the .png you showed ? is there something else you need your not saying ?

also, Motif cde, gnome, et al allow multiple "work groups" (windows) exactly to allow groups of open windows to be on "pages"

Motif "250" has a panning desktop, so group/area of desktop can be panned (useful if X11's virtual screen does not work as hoped or cannot be large enough / is limited by video memory)

if you want to do that FROM A SINGLE (linux) CONSOLE there is an app that does it

GNU does have an app that does it ... go to www.gnu.org and check the list of gnu apps ... not many to look though , sorry i can't remember name of app

but again ... most people like Alt-Arrow across consoles instead of seeing "all at once" (they develope a photographic memory of what is on the other (12) windows by using it a while)

What about using screen (or tmux but I have no experience of it) then something like Midnight Commander in the bottom pane?

Yup, first thing I thought of for that part, was dollphin. I like using it split screen dolphin with embedded terminal.
