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

LXTerminal supports multiple tabs. All instances of program share the same process to reduce memory usage.


  • Option to hide the menu bar for saving space
  • Option to hide the scroll bar for saving space
  • Option to hide the mouse
  • Set the buffer size (the number of lines that you can scroll back)
  • Change the color scheme (supports truecolor thanks to VTE)
  • Specify which characters should be selected with a double click
  • Tabs (optionnal)
  • Cursor : block or underline, blinking or not
  • Keyboard shortcuts


For a minimalist terminal, useful for tilling WM, LXTerminal can be configured to hide the menu bar and the scrolling bar. The tab bar does appear only if a second tab is opened. A right click opens a menu and allows to reach for the options or any elements from the hidden menu bar.
