Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, FinalTerm is a powerful terminal emulator, bringing many out of the box features. Some features worth mentioning: intelligent command completion, good repositioning of text after window resizing, good desktop integration with Unity.
The latest version available is FinalTerm 0.1.0, which is still under massive development, so don’t expect it to run flawless.
In this article I will show you how to install FinalTerm 0.1.0 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Pinguy OS 14.04, LXLE 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Linux Lite 2.0, Peppermint Five and other Ubuntu 14.04 derivative systems.
Because FinalTerm is not available via PPA for Ubuntu 14.04 and derivatives, we have to build it from sources, from Git. Follow the instructions exactly, in order to get a successful installation.
$ sudo apt-get install git build-essential cmake intltool valac libgtk-3-dev intltool clutter-gtk-1.0 libkeybinder-3.0-dev libgee-0.8-dev libnotify-bin libmx-dev
$ git clone https://github.com/p-e-w/finalterm.git
$ cd finalterm/
$ mkdir build
$ cd build/
$ cmake ..
$ sudo make install
