I have just installed Ubuntu 16.04. I tried installing terminator from https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/precise/terminator (The link is redirecting somewhere else now) but I am unable to install it. I am getting following message

This software comes from a 3rd party and may contain non-free components

How can I install terminator by command line?

  • You might consider trying to install Terminator vir the software center instead so that you get the version for your release instead of trying to install the version for precise (12.04) – Elder Geek Sep 30 '16 at 22:26

Just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the commands below:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install terminator
