Setting Up Terminator (Terminal ++)

You can use terminator to configure terminal multi-window to start the way you want. Here I am showing my configuration.

Picture

Installing

$ sudo yum install terminator

Make the Way you Like

Open and configure the layout you desire.

CTRL+O splits horizontally and CTRL+E splits vertically.

Go to preferences -> Layouts and clique add to add your configuration. Type the commands you want for each windows (with ; bash after, so the terminal does not close).

Save to the Config File to make it Permanent

Close terminator and modify ~/.config/terminator/config to have your configuration to [[default]]. For example:

[global_config]
  sticky = True
[keybindings]
[profiles]
  [[default]]
    background_image = None
    scrollback_infinite = True
[layouts]
  [[default]]
    [[[child0]]]
      position = 0:25
      type = Window
      order = 0
      parent = ""
      size = 1366, 708
    [[[child1]]]
      position = 632
      type = HPaned
      order = 0
      parent = child0
    [[[child2]]]
      position = 354
      type = VPaned
      order = 0
      parent = child1
    [[[child5]]]
      position = 354
      type = VPaned
      order = 1
      parent = child1
    [[[terminal3]]]
      profile = default
      command = top; bash
      type = Terminal
      order = 0
      parent = child2
    [[[terminal4]]]
      profile = default
      command = su; bash
      type = Terminal
      order = 1
      parent = child2
    [[[terminal7]]]
      profile = default
      command = cd ~/work; bash
      type = Terminal
      order = 1
      parent = child5
    [[[terminal6]]]
      profile = default
      command = cd ~/work; bash
      type = Terminal
      order = 0
      parent = child5
  [[simples]]
    [[[child0]]]
      position = 0:25
      type = Window
      order = 0
      parent = ""
      size = 715, 694
    [[[child1]]]
      position = 348
      type = VPaned
      order = 0
      parent = child0
    [[[terminal3]]]
      profile = default
      command = cd ~/work; bash
      type = Terminal
      order = 1
      parent = child1
    [[[terminal2]]]
      profile = default
      command = cd ~/work; bash
      type = Terminal
      order = 0
      parent = child1
[plugins]

That's it!

To open a different profile (than default), use:

$ terminator -l NAMEPROFILE
