Is it possible to install Pantheon terminal from elementary OS on my Ubuntu 14.04 or newer LTS releases? If yes, how can I?
You can install it by running:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementary-os/stable sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install pantheon-terminal
The ppa:elementary/stable is recommended for LTS releases of Ubuntu.
The ppa:elementary/daily may be used for any currently supported releases of Ubuntu and has the newest and most unstable development of elementary. The Daily PPA is subject to critical bugs and should not be used except for testing purpose only.
Do note that, since Pantheon often uses a different version of GTK than Ubuntu (especially with LTS), this may impact your system with broader impact (IE: Gnome issues), so thar be dragons
In case you want your Terminal to look like Elementary OS' terminal, do the following -
Go to the
Colors tab and uncheck
Use Colors from System Theme
Built-in Schemes drop down menu, select
White on Black
Go to the
Background tab and select
Adjust the slider below according to your preference. Around 75% should look good.
