I saw this screenshot from this post, and was curious as to how they got their Guake environment to have what looks like 3 split tabs. Any suggestions on how to do this? Are they running tmux on top of Guake or something of the sort?

    It's not the guake terminal, instead htop, zsh maybe with oh-my-zsh addons – Anwar Apr 15 '17 at 7:33
  • @Anwar How do you know is not Guake? Could be Guake without tabs, with screen, with zsh with agnoster theme. Great combination, I prefer byobu with tmux as backend thus. – Pablo Bianchi May 21 '18 at 23:39

What you see in the screenshot is couple apps, actually. Tripple split is done by screen as suggested by the name in lower right corner in the screenshot and the process manager in top split is htop.

I personally would recommend byobu instead of just screen, since that has fancier interface showing clock, ip address, and other stats. All the apps are installable via sudo apt-get install PACKAGE-NAME

Here's for instance what can be done witih Byobu. Similar layout:

    You forgot those arrow-symbols in the prompt? Those are from powerline patched fonts. Maybe the terminal was using zsh shell. And the font is inconsolata – Anwar Apr 15 '17 at 7:34
  • Byobu sits on top of tmux or screen, it use one of them as backend. By default (luckily) uses tmux. Take a look my answer here. – Pablo Bianchi May 22 '18 at 0:38
  • @PabloBianchi Yep, that I know. Nice answer btw – Sergiy Kolodyazhnyy May 22 '18 at 1:19
