This report indicates it's sudo apt-get install notification-daemon.

Looks like you need to turn use_vte_titles off (set to false) in the gconf schema for guake. Otherwise you can hack custom strings or behaviour in by changing the on_terminal_title_changed function or code higher up the call stack, since it is not called consistently. It can be found in the main guake file.

Or edit like this: $ vim `which guake` find the 1000 line and change this: self.tabs.get_children()[page].set_label(vte.get_window_title()) on this: if self.tabs.get_children()[page].get_label().find('!') != 0: self.tabs.get_children()[page].set_label(vte.get_window_title()) else: return And now you can rename your tabs ...

It's not a problem of Guake, it is how your terminal title is setup. The new version of Guake respects terminal title from the shell. I bet that you are also getting same long title in Gnome Terminal. Check how to configure terminal title from your shell: http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-mini/Xterm-Title.html

I don't think tmux can do that. It should be easy to patch if you know C programming. One thing you could do is call tmux from a wrapper shell script, and let the script decide whether to exit or not. Send a signal to the wrapper to tell it to execute an interactive shell when tmux exits. Here's an untested proof-of-concept for the wrapper script: export ...

This is a bit of a hack but you could add this to your interactive shell configuration: alias tmuxn='tmux new-session -s $$' _trap_exit() { tmux kill-session -t $$; } trap _trap_exit EXIT Then you can use tmuxn to start a new session. The session will be named as your shell's PID. When your shell exits, the session will be killed.

It's a computer; you can program it. :-) To make something "clickable" means either programming a GUI application or somehow using HTML. The simplest way I can think of would be to generate an HTML page of HREFs, and pipe the output to, say, lynx, configuring the browser to open emacs appropriately.

There is no foolproof way. TERM uses the same value for mostly-compatible emulators; most modern terminal emulators aside from screen and tmux report xterm. You can explore the process list to find Vim's parent's parent. That will tell you in what terminal emulator (if any) Vim is running in in the common case where Vim was launched from a shell which was ...

No, if VirtualBox doesn't have focus, it cannot capture keystrokes to send them to the guest VM.

One way is to simply be able to use a shortcut while in Windows, to quickly switch focus to the virtual machine, and then you can F12 to raise Guake or do whatever else you like. Although VirtualBox itself has some keyboard shortcut options for focus, but I found they required too many keys, and easily conflicted with some other programs I wanted to use, so ...

I don't think you can achieve that in the terminal multiplexer and probably neither in the terminal emulator - it's the application that sets its colours not the terminal. The reason why compositor makes the background translucent is the difference between how the escape sequences ^[[0m and ^[[40m are interpreted. The first (and default one) is interpreted ...

Maybe you can not. For most people who use tmux, they usually close the terminal window instead of the tmux window in order to keep the process (ssh-client for example) running. And then, you can attach the origin tmux session in another terminal. If you do not need this feature, you can use terminator instead of tmux. Terminator splits the terminal window ...

Following up on Alexandar's reply: The following two questions show how to configure a "very short" prompt shortener, which will be also respected by Guake: http://stackoverflow.com/q/3497885/946850 Abbreviated current directory in shell prompt? I use a "not so short" shortener for myself, my .bashrc contains the following: # If this is an xterm set the ...

In retrospect, I found that the easiest way is by running: gconftool-2 --set /apps/guake/general/use_vte_titles --type boolean false from the command line.
