Postby Admin-Amir » Mon Apr 26, 2010 12:00 pm

Hello To you ALL PPL.

I know that all of you want to know How TheeMahn do it on your terminal right? ;)
Well NO I will not going to give you the U.E Code,
But I will Guide you how to make your Terminal more Friendly for you to work with.

So now the default terminal window comes with a black background.
I'd say a little boring visually.
Let's process to improve the visual of the terminal.

Terminal window:

A new window pop up before us we will edit the terminal according to our will.
Now click the Edit option on the right to enter the editing window of the terminal.
Now new window pop up .
Background tab options came up.
It seems that the default option will be marked with no background in the terminal.
That is the first option above.

To change the terminal background I was chosen the second option by checking the second option.
Now we can navigate for Image,Text etc, file on our computer.
By clicking on the folder and right we can make the navigation to the file that we want.
I chose to put in the terminal window the background of my blog.

Now the feeling has been more pleasant for me, more friendly.
When the Background of the Terminal is not just with commands to work,
We can simply choose to make the terminal transparent - Transparent.
That will make our terminal Transparent to our desktop window.
Well then you change options in the terminal visual appearance more fun at work.

I hope that the short guide will give everyone a little more Then just to insert the commands .
A wise man once said that the eye is the one who buys - we just pay.
I think if the eye will feel comfortable with the terminal,
If The user terminal will be more comfortable then to work with terminal will be fun,
And it will Not scare you to use it more and more.

Hope this Guide Help you to get it done <BREW> ;)

The default selection was "Transparent Background", but I could see all solid black background.
Then, after selecting "Background Image" and returning to "Transparent Background", the background changed over to transparency.

I was expecting the background to go opaque when the slider is shifted to "None" and become progressively more transparent as I move to "Maximum", but it works opposite! Maybe I understood it reversely.

Hello kghosh22 .

If you play with the slider then you shift to Maximum the Background will be Dark.
If you shift Back to Min then you will see your image in the best way.
you have some option there with colors , images...
So you can always go back to the default option of the terminal.
