Just as the title says, is it possible to change it so when you click on the tilix icon in the taskbar it opens a new terminal session, rather than minimising the one already open? If I can get this working UB might be my new distro.
Pressing the CTRL Key when you click the icon will open a new instance of Tilix.
Ah cool, thanks. It would be great if icons on the dock could have an option to either minimise or open a new instance. In the case of terminals it makes a lot of sense that one would want new windows.
I’ve spent 17 years clicking to open a new window, and old habits die hard.
tilix also has a semi-hidden quake terminal show/hide feature - I’m not sure what the shortcut is by default (I changed mine), but I very quickly got used to using that mode of terminal access after a similar period of traditional terminal usage.
Maybe that could be worth investigating too?
@cleary I’m not sure what a quake terminal is, but I’ll do some googling on that. Thanks!
One thing I really like about cinnamon are the hot-corners. My bottom right is set to open a new terminal so just flashing the mouse pointer there does the job nicely.
Just activate the hot-corners applet via budgie-settings and you can define a custom command to open tilix
F12 or ALT+Q are the keyboard shortcuts in 18.04 to open quake mode.
heh, apparently I’ve abused my contribution opportunity to get my own shortcut in
speaking of which, I still need to debug that reset thing (I haven’t forgotten!)
@fossfreedom cool, thanks. I installed brightside but didn’t know hot-corners were there natively.
