Is there an alternative terminal for Ubuntu that supports something like the Windows 10 "mark mode"?

It allows selecting text and copying to the system clipboard with the keyboard only.


Update: I found termite which can do this but unfortunately is missing tabs. Also setting it up is quite painful.

  • @A.B. I've read that question and Terminal can't do it - that's why I am asking about an alternative terminal. – laktak Aug 9 '15 at 20:03

Gnome terminal already allows selecting text with mouse and copying with Ctrl + Shift + C . Pasting is done with Ctrl + Shift + V.

  • Yes but I'd like to select with the keyboard - see mark mode. – laktak Aug 8 '15 at 22:13
