    There are some cool things you can do with this application if you access to their config file. :)

    Hi Avishek, I’m looking for a answer about Why I can’t do Audible ping from Terminator and I can do it from CTRL+ALT+F1 typing ping -a for example? And the most important how I could fix/do it from Terminator?

    Can you help me, please?

    Thanks a lot!!

    Is there a windows version of this tool somewhere?

    Wrong link. The article is about “Gnome Terminator” which is a native Linux app, yet the link points to a Java based terminal emulator which is completely different, despite sharing the same name.

    Gnome Terminator is not available on the Windows platform.

    Actually, yes, you’ve searched for Terminator, and gotten the wrong one in the link.

    Hi Avishek.

    As the current maintainer of Terminator, thanks for the article, but can I ask you to correct a couple of things so people don’t get the wrong idea.

    1. Terminator is not designed (nor have I heard of anyone succeeding) in running it on Mac OS X or Windows. There is some name confusion with another project out there called Terminator. Perhaps you are referring to or confusing with the other one.

    2. Possibly another confusion with the other project, there is no Java in Terminator. It is pure Python. “Portal ­ written in Java.” ?!?!?

    Everything else looks correct. You don’t mention which version you used, (terminator –version) but there are continual (if slow) additions. As ever, launchpad is the best place to see the latest, or to contribute.

      Requesting Admin, to correct it.
