Is there a hotkey to switch between tabs in Ubuntu's native terminal app? I'm using the netbook version of ubuntu.

Too bad the hotkey isn't ctrl+tab. I wonder if it can be changed. –  pinouchon Feb 25 '13 at 8:52

You can also use Ctrl+PgUp/PgDn to go to previous/next tab.

You mean gnome-terminal?

To switch between tabs you can use Alt-n, where n is the tab ordinal number.

  • Alt+Maj+n if using an azerty keyboard, caps-locked or not...

By the way, this works the same in Gedit.

I'm guessing you mean the default distributed (pre-installed) gnome-terminal.

You can set your own shortcuts easily, just go to menu Edit>Keyboard Shortcuts...

gnome-terminal keyboard shortcuts settings as seen on ubuntu 12.04

Bonus tip: If you wanna take a look to the real "native terminal" or tty (teletype interfase) just hit Ctrl+Alt+F1 (It works with almost any Function key), and don't panic, you can come back to the "graphical interfase" by hitting Ctrl+Alt+F7
