The software you are looking for is called "cool-old-term" and is available on github. It emulates the look of a CRT and is based around konsole (KDE's terminal) and requires QT 5.2 or newer. The readme has instructions for getting it working on Ubuntu 14.04 and Arch. The examples on the github page show a few other variations on the CRT look and the ...

There's no easy method for determining which terminal program to use on Linux. Even though it's possible to get distribution info, use may or may not remove default GUI terminal program and install others. Generally the approach is to get a list of common terminal programs and find the first one usable. As an example, here is how virtualbox linux guest ...

It's better if you execute the commands using /Bin/Bash <terminal command> This would work for every linux distribution.

There are at least two applications built in as standard xscreensaver modules that do some of this already - they're actual terminal emulators in their own right. One is phosphor and the other is apple2. On my machine I can, for instance: /usr/lib/xscreensaver/apple2 -text -fast -program /usr/bin/sh And the xscreensaver module opens its own pty for sh ...

You can set Gnome Terminal to look this way. When the terminal is running, click Edit > Profile Preferences. Under the Colors tab, there is a Built-in scheme of Green on black that looks just like what you want.

Technically, you can run an X server on Android. For a bare X11 server, see Play store: X Server for example. That could help with very special needs, like showing a plot window on fixed screen position with no window manager for example. You could run a full xsession on that display of course, but I think that is not too useful in most general cases. ...

The terminal emulation is baked pretty deep into the design of mosh, so, no. Mosh works by having both client and server each maintain its local idea of what the screen currently "looks like", and that requires that the server does terminal emulation. This is how the client is able to refresh the contents of the screen after it has been away for a while and ...

Another approach is to use the gnu screen utility on your local machine. Invoke it with the -L option, or start without that option and use the ^aH command sequence. Either approach causes all input & output to be logged to a file named screenlog.x where x is the screen number. This is a handy because nothing extra needs to be installed on the remote ...

5,6) 9pins is usually enough, the extra pins are secondary data or extra hand shake. The minimum number of pins/wires is 3: ground (gnd), transmit(tx) and receive(rx). It is better to have more handshaking: clear to send and request to send, then a bit better is to add data set ready, data terminal ready. Note the biggest misunderstanding in rs232 is the ...
