Ddterm/Yakuake alternatives for Gnome?

I love this type of terminal since I first started using Yakuake. I switched to ddterm on gnome, but unfortunately now it doesn’t really work, since it isn’t supporting gnome 44 yet.

Are there any other alternatives, that are already updated?

How 'bout:


And it’s in the community repository:

$ pamac search guake
guake                                                                                                                                                                                                                        3.10-1                community
Drop-down terminal for GNOME

So it can be easily installed using:

pamac install guake

This one great, thanks!
Although animation when it appears sucks… For some reason it isn’t coming from the top, just appears from high-centre part of the screen and expands to take it’s place.
Is there any way to change the animation? Can’t find that option.

Probably. I just have no idea where or what. Last time I used it was still using Ubuntu, ±3 years ago. And it worked smoothly, from the top down, so I’m guessing there has to be an option somewhere.


Maybe there’s something here:


Edit #2:

Or, y’know, there’s always the documentation:

Tilix has a Quake mode and works with the quake-mode GNOME Shell Extension.

This is great, thanks!
Now I can just use any terminal I like and I’ll sure find other usages :slight_smile:

Seeing terminal window isn’t great though(when in desktop overview).
