I'm looking for a Konsole equivalent for Gnome. I searched Google but was surprised how little I found.

I don't want a Quake-style dropdown console. I like tabs and the ability to send a command to all tabs. Any ideas?

What's wrong with using Konsole in Gnome? – digitxp Aug 20 '11 at 20:30

The default terminal for Gnome is gnome-terminal, and it does support tabs.

When it comes to sending command to multiple servers at once, how about ClusterSSH?

I would recommend checking out Compiz, which is definitely one of the best looking X-Window managers I've seen in a while. If you're more of a minimalist then IceWM is another option; it's lightweight and highly customizable. The X-Window manager for Gnome 3 (Mutter) is nice looking too, although some say it's bloated and no tabs that I'm aware.

@ zds: I think he might have guessed that already. @ digitxp: Konsole is a KDE component; unless KDE is installed it won't work, and doing would defeat the purpose of running Gnome. – l'L'l Aug 20 '11 at 21:32
Looking into apt on Ubuntu, Konsole only depends on the KDE runtime and some qt libraries. Nothing that would make the massive behemoth that is GNOME any slower. – digitxp Aug 23 '11 at 0:19

I like ROXTerm. Has tabbing, Customizable profiles, the works. Plus its super lightweight.
