How I use Tilix

Tilix is a tool used for terminal multiplexing on computers running Linux. It is super-functional and highly-customizable. My main goal is to make my workflow more efficient. Tilix does this, and once it's set up it just works. Check out this video. I demonstrate how to install and use it over the first 10 minutes and then get into how I customize it.


OS Command
Debian sudo apt install tilix
Fedora sudo dnf install tilix
Arch pacman -S tilix
