Guake terminal

What is Guake termianl ?
Guake is a top-down terminal for Gnome (in the style of Yakuake for KDE, Tilda or the terminal used in Quake).


Guake is a drop-down terminal for GNOME Desktop Environment. Like similar terminals, it is invoked with a single keystroke, and hidden by pressing the same keystroke again. Its design was inspired from consoles in computer games such as Quake which slide down from the top of the screen when a key is pressed, and slide back up when the key is pressed again. Guake follows the same line of Yakuake and Tilda, but it's an attempt to meld the best of them into a single GTK-based application. Guake has been written from scratch.

Running Guake is faster than launching a new terminal with a keyboard shortcut because the program is already loaded into memory, and so can be useful to people who frequently find themselves opening and closing terminals for odd tasks.


How to install Guake ?

How to install cinnamon Desktop Interface in ubuntu !

Hi guys today i am going to show you how to install Cinnamon in Ubuntu Linux OS !

About cinnamon

The Linux Mint development team was initially unsure about the future of the distribution after the release of GNOME 3. Its new interface, GNOME Shell, did not fit the design goals the team had in mind for Linux Mint, but there were initially no available alternatives. Linux Mint 11 "Katya" was released in May 2011 with the final release of GNOME 2, but it was clear that a better solution was needed, as GNOME Panel was no longer being developed. Therefore, the team set out to improve GNOME Shell so that it would fit Linux Mint's goals, and the result was the "Mint GNOME Shell Extensions" (MGSE). In the meantime, the MATE desktop environment was forked from GNOME 2. The Mint team decided to incorporate MATE into Linux Mint 12 "Lisa" alongside MGSE, to give users a choice whether to use the traditional GNOME 2 desktop or the GNOME 3-based MGSE.
