I recently installed Lubuntu. The terminal look and feel are not as good as compared to L&F for terminal that I used use in Ubuntu 12.04.

I would like to know from where and how can I download the same terminal that I was using Ubuntu 12.04.

The terminal that you get along with the LXDE package is lxterminal. To install the terminal application that generally comes along GNOME is gnome-terminal.


Type in

sudo apt-get install gnome-terminal

in the lxterminal.

another good looking terminal that allows you to dropdown on pressing F12, looks fancy and comes handy is the guake terminal. Try it by typing :

sudo apt-get install guake

in the lxterminal.

And hope those are the last commands that you use in lxterminal

You just have to install it from the repositories. It will pull in some dependencies, but they won't affect your system.

Click here to install: gnome-terminal Install gnome-terminal

Or run sudo apt-get install gnome-terminal
