Description (last modified by )
This is hrev28717.
I have a few suggestions to make Terminal more enduser friendly.
I propose to add these lines to inputrc:
Control-f: kill-word "\e[1~": beginning-of-line "\e[4~": end-of-line
Which will activate HOME and END keys and deletes the word to the right of the cursor with CRTL+F. The other lines in that tip refer to international characters which is blocked by another old ticket already, #215.
2. The title tab of Terminal's settings panel should be named like the menu item envoking it: "Terminal Preferences".
3. The colors in the dropdown menu in that panel should be renamed to be more enduser friendly:
- Text under Cursor
- Selected Text
- Selected Background
4. If there is more than one Tab in a Terminal window, ALT+W should only close the current Tab, not the whole window with all the tabbed sessions. That's what ALT+Q is for.
5. Only the current Tab should be light grey. The others should be darker to have the active one stand out.
6. Instead of "Shell 1,2,3" name each Tab "Alt+1, 2, 3" to remind people of the switching shortcuts. This should take in account the Menu preference setting if anybody uses "CONTROL" instead of "ALT".
7. A bit more complicated: Have a double-click on the "Alt+1,2,3" Tab-label enter editing mode to rename a Tab.
- Tabbed-Terminals that are busy could show a little icon in the tab that gets removed when the prompt's back.
- I'd appreciate to have a checkbox in the "Terminal Preferences" panel called "Automatic coloring of new tabs". This will open every new tab with a different nicely(!) colored profile.
The Tab color should reflect each background color.
I think I better stop now... :) I have to admit that I'm not the world's heaviest shell user, but these are the things I'd find being useful without imposing too much on our weathered shell denizens.
