Is there a hotkey to switch between tabs in Ubuntu's native terminal app? I'm using the netbook version of ubuntu.
You can also use Ctrl+PgUp/PgDn to go to previous/next tab.
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
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
Simple and standard for all:
for switching/moving tabs:
Ctrl + pg up
Ctrl + pg dn
for positioning tabs (not switching):
if you want to position tabs, but not switch/move. is useful when too many tabs are open in web browser and or terminal and you want to group/lineup tabs. you can do this.
CtrlShift + pg up
CtrlShift + pg dn
try this in your browser tabs. and see what happens.
For anyone using Konsole, that comes with Kubuntu (or KDE), the shortcut is -
Alt + Shift + n, where n is the tab number starting from 1, works for me on Ubuntu 18.04 with Gnome Desktop Environment.
