What is Tilix?

Tilix is a tiling terminal emulator for Linux using GTK+3. It is more advanced than default Terminal with great features. Provides the customization and many more features, so here are the great features of Tilix.

  • Layout terminals in any fashion by splitting them horizontally or vertically
  • Terminals can be rearranged using drag and drop both within and between windows
  • Terminals can be detached into a new window via drag and drop
  • Input can be synchronized between terminals so commands typed in one terminal are replicated to the others
  • The grouping of terminals can be saved and loaded from disk
  • Terminals support custom titles
  • Color schemes are stored in files and custom color schemes can be created by simply creating a new file
  • Transparent background
  • Background images
  • Quake mode support (i.e. drop-down terminal)

So, after reading the features now we will move toward the Installation process. Tilix can be installed on major Linux distributions such as Debian, Fedora, Ubuntu, Solus, Arch, OpenSuse, etc. See the main dependencies here:

  • GTK 3.18 or later (Tilix 1.8.3 or later, earlier versions supported GTK 3.14)
  • GTK VTE 0.42 or later
  • dconf
  • GSettings
  • Nautilus-Python (Required for Nautilus integration)
