LXTerminal is the standard terminal emulator of LXDE. The terminal is a desktop-independent VTE-based terminal emulator for LXDE without any unnecessary dependency.

All instances of its windows use just a single process. This design results in lower memory usage when multiple terminals are in use.

LXTerminal supports multiple tabs and features graphically driven configuration.

Features

  • Change the color scheme (full 24-bit color support by means of VTE)
  • Cursor : block or underline, blinking or not
  • Configurable buffer size (number of scroll back lines)
  • Configure selectable characters when double clicking text
  • Tabs (optional)
  • Keyboard shortcuts
  • Option to hide the mouse
  • Option to hide the menu bar
  • Option to hide the scroll bar

Minimalism

For a minimalist terminal (useful with a tiling WM), LXTerminal can be configured to hide the menu bar and the scrollbar.

This can be set using the menus, or directly in lxterminal.conf:

hidescrollbar and hidemenubar should be set to true in the [general] section:

hidescrollbar=true
hidemenubar=true

There is special handling for tab bars such that it only appears if a new tab is created.

A right click opens a menu and allows to reach for the options or any elements from the hidden menu bar.
