    How To Create Cool Effects in a Terminal

    Ubuntu can be configured and managed from the desktop for the most part but occasionally, you may still have to open a terminal session to get some work done. I've spent a fair amount of time working with Debian so I'm used to opening a terminal, switching to root and typing apt-get update. One thing about the default terminal though is that it's boring. Just black text on a white background. Fortunately, you don't have to live with it if you don't want to. It's easy to customize the terminal's appearance to suit your fancy.

      Er - I have to say that this worries me! :biggrin

      OK - I prefer white on black - I find it easier to read. But all the other things like transparent just remind me of people who spend all day adjusting their Windows wallpaper and not getting any work done! <giggle>

      Boring is good. I don't want exciting windows (May you live in exciting times - er no)!

      I dunno...use a dark wallpaper, green text and a transparent background and you have that X-Files/Matrix thing going. :D

      Oops. Wrong screenshot. The attachment in the previous post is a screenshot of ubuntu on my laptop. The "goth" girl in question is actually a publicity shot of Rogue (Anna Paquin) from the film [url="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0376994/]X-Men 3: The Last Stand[/url].
