Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. Join them; it only takes a minute:

Sign up
Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

In the bash, one can enable a "search-as-you-type-like" behaviour by changing eg. the .inputrc :

  1 ## arrow up
  2 "\e[A":history-search-backward
  3 ## arrow down
  4 #"\e[B":history-search-forward

Is there anything similar in the LXTerminal, besides hitting CTRL+r?
