Beautify the Terminal

Filed under

HowTos

The linux terminal can get boring at times owing to lack of colors & a rigid black background. Hardcore Linux enthusiasts won’t think about the appearance of the terminal but normal users will surely get bored of the monochrome terminal sooner or later. Surprisingly beautifying the terminal is pretty simple & if you are tired of the same old black terminal then you should read ahead. Before proceeding, let me tell you that this guide is not for beautifying the terminal found on server machines (Runlevel 3) or those virtual terminals. This guide is intended to beautify the GNOME Terminal found under the GNOME desktop.

The first step is to launch the terminal offcourse which can be found under Applications>System Tools>Terminal under a GNOME desktop. Once the terminal opens up, head over to Edit>Profile Preferences. A new window should pop-up.

7 tools for analyzing performance in Linux with bcc/BPF

I'll discuss one way to use BPF on the Fedora and Red Hat family of Linux distributions, demonstrating on Fedora 26. BPF can run user-defined sandboxed programs in the kernel to add new custom capabilities instantly. It's like adding superpowers to Linux, on demand. Examples of what you can use it for include: Read more
