Double your fun with QuadKonsole

Filed under
HowTos

Sometimes it's the simple ideas that produce powerful applications -- like a terminal emulator that provides several shells side by side in a single window. A few days ago, I was looking for a way to split windows in Konsole when I ran across QuadKonsole, a program that embeds several Konsole instances in a single window, making it easy to switch between shell sessions and keep an eye on all of them at once.

Most of the time, Konsole's tabbed interface is fine -- I can switch back and forth between shells and only need to concentrate on one session at a time. However, sometimes I want to be able to eyeball two or more sessions at once, and trying to toggle two Konsole instances just doesn't cut it. QuadKonsole, on the other hand, makes it easy to juggle two, four, or more sessions simultaneously.

QuadKonsole is available from Simon Perreault's homepage as source code, or you can find Ubuntu packages for QuadKonsole on pkg.marisil.org.

Full Story.
