I am a great fan of vertical tabs which I use for Firefox. It really eases my work flow. I am looking for something similar for the gnome-terminal as well. Is there any way to get it.
That's (currently) not possible without changes in the source code and I assume that this is not your intention.
But the idea has something. I prefer to renounce horizontal space.
The only thing you can do is to switch between top and bottom:
% gsettings range org.gnome.Terminal.Legacy.Settings tab-position enum 'top' 'bottom'
Move to top
gsettings set org.gnome.Terminal.Legacy.Settings tab-position top
Move to bottom
gsettings set org.gnome.Terminal.Legacy.Settings tab-position bottom
TL; DR no with
gnome-terminal, but you can do it with
terminator as usual:
sudo apt-get install terminator
And then run it from the dash, right click, choose "preferences" in the menu, and you can see this:
Now if you open multiple tabs you have
...where you can also see a vertical split terminal.
