ubuntu: gnome-terminal or terminator?

My new ThinkPad “broke” – neither internal nor external video worked any longer.

I got my SSD moved from the broken ThinkPad to another ThinkPad. (Yes, we considered the downsides.)

gnome-terminal wouldn’t want to start any more. Error message:

# Error constructing proxy for org.gnome.Terminal:/org/gnome/Terminal/Factory0: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.gnome.Terminal: Timeout was reached

Possibly the SSD or the file system on it is damaged. For the time being I don’t want to care.

I started using terminator instead.

I has a few nice features as well:

  • splitting a tab horizontally
  • splitting a tab vertically
