Once I've created a new tab in gnome-terminal with Ctrl+Shift+t, how can I switch back and forth between the tabs using the keyboard? For example, in Google Chrome the keyboard shortcut is Ctrl+Tab (forward) and Ctrl+Shift+Tab (backward).

I'm using Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon.

    Google returns THIS as the first result when doing a search with your exact title. – don_crissti Mar 14 '13 at 3:30
  • Thanks. I previously searched for "Switch between tabs in terminal with keyboard" which gives a bunch of results relevent to mac os. I forgot to search again after you asked if I was using gnome terminal. – dannyp32 Mar 14 '13 at 3:53

Ctrl+Page Down (forward) and Ctrl+Page Up (backward).

Try using alt+tab number for Linux with gnome.

For me, what works is: Alt + shift + tab number.
