Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, a lot of Hollywood movies do not contain accurate information regarding Linux and hacking concepts, so Canonical’s Dustin Kirkland created the Hollywood terminal emulator, which mimics real time hacking.
The latest version available is Hollywood Terminal 1.6, which has been recently released.
In this article I will show you how to install Hollywood Terminal 1.6 on Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet, Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Elementary OS 0.2 Luna, Deepin 2014, Peppermint Five, LXLE 14.04, Linux Lite 2.0 and other Ubuntu derivative systems.
Because it is available via PPA, installing Hollywood Terminal 1.6 on Ubuntu 15.04, Ubuntu 14.10, Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 12.04 and derivative systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the hollywood and byobu packages. Like this:
$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:hollywood/ppa
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install byobu hollywood
To run the hollywood terminal, you need to open byobu first and next run hollywood, from the command-line.
Optional, to remove hollywood, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove byobu hollywood
