My terminal choice has always been Guake, but at my job they have some Macs and I've started to use iTerm2 and I really love the split-functionality.
So I was searching for something similar in Ubuntu. I've tried with Guake + screen, but that is definitely not the same experience, because screen has to be executed as a command.
Yes, I could put it into my bash config, but if I split the screen I cannot move the scroll bar with the mouse (maybe there's a shortcut for this?). The other thing is that my bash config is completely screwed up with screen, I have a function to make an
ls after each
cd and another to show some info in my prompt when I enter a git repository.
Both don't work for me.
I really would like to know about a program with the iTerm2 functionalities for Ubuntu or, in the worst case, try to emulate them the most similar possible.
