I used Ubuntu as a desktop OS and Arch Linux for live USB (disk status detections and so). Recently I tried to install Arch Linux + Gnome instead of Ubuntu to my desktop, but was surprised gnome-terminal doesn't look as perfect as clean Arch. Is there a way, how to make gnome-terminal look like clean Arch UI?

Currently my gnome-terminal look like this: What my gnome-terminal look like

Simply I want gnome-terminal look like this: What I want to achieve gnome-terminal look like

    For the shell you would change to zsh and use grml-zsh-config (something of that nature, exact name escapes me). For the GUI you'd want to turn off the menu bar and scroll bars to make it clean. Another option is using something that uses config files only and not a GUI like termite, I love it. It's VTE based too which I think gnome terminal still uses the vte widget. – Cory T Jul 18 '17 at 0:00

    assuming you have the equivalent packages, etc. installed then I would boot your Arch live USB and copy all the config files and see if that gets what you want – ivanivan Jul 18 '17 at 0:47
  • What do you mean by “clean Arch”? What aspects do you want to change? If, as your screenshot suggests, you're looking for something with no menus, why are you using gnome-terminal and not xterm? – Gilles Jul 19 '17 at 0:35
