I want to install in my Ubuntu 12.04 only the MATE terminal. I don't want to completely migrate to mate, but I just want the terminal because I think it's a cool one.



To install mate-terminal in Precise (12.04) you need a PPA:


Follow the steps below…

First install software-properties-common, we need add-apt-repository

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common

After that

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mate-dev/precise-mate
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mate-terminal

    In 16.04 you likely don't need the ppa stuff and can just use, "sudo apt-get update" and then "sudo apt-get install mate-terminal". – Night Owl Jan 25 '17 at 16:39
