Multiple GNOME Terminals in one Window - Terminator

Terminator, multiple terminals in one window. The goal of this project is to produce a useful tool for arranging terminals. It is inspired by programs such as gnome-multi-term, quadkonsole, etc. in that the main focus is arranging terminals in grids (tabs is the most common default method, which Terminator also supports).

Terminator gives the possibility of having multiples terminal within the same window. As such, it makes it easier to handle multiple terminal sessions as for instance, working in one console and monitoring another one without constantly switching from a window to another.

Terminator Features:
 * Arrange terminals in a grid
 * Tabs
 * Drag and drop re-ordering of terminals
 * Lots of keyboard shortcuts
 * Save multiple layouts and profiles via GUI preferences editor
 * Simultaneous typing to arbitrary groups of terminals

 Terminator Installation:
Open the terminal and run the following commands:
sudo apt-get install terminator
To install Terminator in Fedora, run (as root):
yum install terminator
Once installed, you can start a new terminator application by typing command: terminator

From there, you will be able to split views either by Right-Clicking on a terminal view or by typing the following key bindings:

Ctrl-Shift-E: will split the view vertically.
Ctrl-Shift-O: will split the view horizontally.
Ctrl-Shift-P: will focus be active on the previous view.
Ctrl-Shift-N: will focus be active on the next view.
Ctrl-Shift-W: will close the view where the focus is on.
Ctrl-Shift-Q: will exit terminator.
F11: will make terminator go fullscreen.

You can find the terminator configuration file under: ~/.config/terminator/config
Look at the man terminator_config for detail terminator options for this configuration file
