If you love to work in terminal, then you’ll must love Guake terminal. By pressing F12, you can easily turn on/off the terminal. To install it, run:

Add Guake to StartUp Applications

After installing Guake terminal, it’ll not start automatically. To start Guake terminal when the machine boot:

Goto System -> Preferences -> Startup Applications.


Dash -> Type: Startup Applications

The Startup Application Preferences window opens. Then, click in Add, give a Name for the Application in the Name field (“Guake” it’s enough), and then type “guake” without quotes in the command field and click Add. Then close the Startup Application Preferences window and restat the machine, now Guake should start automatically on login.

Or, if you want to do it with command prompt, then:

sudo cp /usr/share/applications/guake.desktop /etc/xdg/autostart/


Install dotfiles

If you want to personalize your system, then you can use any of the dotfiles available in github. I’m a fan of mathiasbynens/dotfiles. To use it:

git clone https://github.com/mathiasbynens/dotfiles.git <span class="pl-k">&&</span> <span class="pl-c1">cd</span> dotfiles <span class="pl-k">&&</span> <span class="pl-c1">source</span> bootstrap.sh

To directly download the Remarkable Editor, go to here.

Or, if you want to download it with terminal, then open the terminal:
