1. What is the name of the process for a running gnome terminal?
  2. Does each tab in a gnome terminal have a process, or all the tabs in a gnome terminal have the same process?



It's called bash. Each running terminal does have a separate process.

  • each tab has a separate process?

  • I am not too sure whether or not the tabs have. I would have carried this out, but unfortunately, I have uninstalled my default terminal. Here is what to do. Open a terminal window. Go into system monitor and look for the bash process, it should be one. Add a terminal tab and take a look at the system monitor, did it change or stayed the same?

  • Terminator, because I use Ubuntu GNOME (official distro) and I could not get a transparent background since this functionality has been removed due to some performance reason. I mapped Terminator to use the default configs of terminal so its partly normal. I can have multiple terms in the same window. Vertical and horizontal. see here - dont get jealous

it's called gnome-terminal. Each terminal it's an instance, then have it own process. But the tab's of one terminal are linked. If you kill the process ( sudo killall gnome-terminal ) all the tab's will be closed.

  • hummm... i don't know!
