Drop-down terminal for GNOME Desktop Environment
  20 reviews

Guake is a drop-down terminal for GNOME Desktop Environment, so you just need to press a key to invoke him, and press again to hide. Guake supports hotkeys, tabs, background transparent, etc.

Unfortunately it does not work fully within Mint 20.2. For example, the Search (Ctrl+Shift+F) function does not work at all. I uninstalled it and instead I'm using Yakuake, which is a fork of Guake.

Very useful application, but on LinuxMint 20 (cinnamon) creates zombie (??!!)

This is an amazing software, there are TONS of themes for you to choose, in my case DRACULA as it blends with my VIM/FIREFOX/VSCODE ... theme (all dracula) Its easy to setup, and having a multiple desktop terminal is quite handy, should be pre-installed with linux mint, runs brilliantly

Why isn't this pre-installed? I understand that a lot of "home" users wouldn't be interested but when it is needed... A quick F12 opens and closes the terminal. Genius!

Having a single terminal across workspaces I can summon and dispel at the push of a single key is really nice!

Guake is brilliant. Always look for this kind of terminal wherever I go (e.g. iTerm2 / TotalTerminal on Mac). Unfortunately, this package is a bit behind the times, and tab closing is broken. Hopefully someone somewhere will update it...

В чем смысл данного терминала? Ну да быстровызываемый, но по сути это тот же терминал.

One of the first utils i install on a new build. Love the transparency when reading what repository to use form the webpage underneath it. Can have multiple terminals by clicking on icon in bottom right corner.

It's awesome because at this moment there's no app that has function like this. I hope that the developer will make guake more flexible by allowing it to be located anywhere as expected.

Ok but missing featues such as multiple sessions which YAKUAKE offers

Not configurable; also wastes MOST of my screen. I can put a hot-key on most things; so no special value to me.
