Quick Terminal v. 0.1 is here

Now, Quick terminal is finally released.

You will need python, python-gtk2 and python-vte installed in order to use it. Depending on your setup there might also be some other Python things you need to have – but as far as I know those three should be enough.

Without further ado here we go.

terminal, python terminal, python terminal client, linux terminal

DOWNLOAD & INSTRUCTIONS

############################################

Download the terminal from here: terminal.zip.

############################################

The terminal.py file can be found within the terminal.zip file listed above

The terminal.py needs to be made executable so that you can run it. In a terminal client type:

chmod +x terminal.py

OR

chmod +x /home/username/foldername/terminal.py

The above entry can be used if you placed the extracted terminal.py to some specific location. The chmod +x terminal.py line can be used if you placed the terminal.py directly inside your user’s home directory.

Tip. For easier launching you should create a new symbolic link for the terminal.py

For example:

sudo ln -s /home/tester/Release/terminal.py /usr/local/bin/quick

You will replace tester with your actual username and the folder paths with your actual folder paths.

The command above will create a link called quick. So, when the link is created and you type quick to a command prompt then Quick Terminal should appear

To remove the created link replace ln -s with rm -r (See the example command above).
