tilix - Tiling GTK3 terminal emulator for GNOME
tilix is an advanced GTK3 tiling terminal emulator designed to adhere to
Gnome Human Interface Guidelines.
The tilix application accepts the following command line parameters:
- -h --help
- Show help options.
- -v --version
- Show the version of Tilix as well as the versions of dependent
- -w --working-directory=DIRECTORY
- Set the working directory of the terminal.
- -p --profile=PROFILE_NAME
- Set the starting profile using the name of one of the existing profiles.
If a name is passed that does not correspond to an existing profile, the
default profile will be used.
- -t --title=TITLE
- Set the title of the new terminal.
- -s --session=SESSION_NAME
- Open the specified session file which has been previously saved. Session
files are saved from within Tilix, they store the complete layout of the
session enabling the user to re-load it when required. Note that only the
layout and layout options are saved, this will not restore the terminal to
where it was left off, rather new terminals are created.
- -a --action=ACTION_NAME
- Perform an action in the current Tilix instance, the following actions are
- session-add-right Adds a new terminal to the right of the current
- session-add-down Adds a new terminal down from the current
- app-new-session Creates a new Tilix session within the current
- app-new-window Creates a new Tilix window.
- -e --command=COMMAND
- Execute all text after this parameter as a command, thus this parameter
must be the last parameter.
- Maximize the terminal window.
- Minimize the terminal window.
- Full-screen the terminal window.
- Focus the existing window.
- Start an additional Tilix instance as a new process. By default and as per
GTK+ 3 guidelines, Tilix maintains a single process that all windows
belong to. This option forces Tilix to start as a separate process. This
is not recommended and is intended for debugging purposes only, using this
option will prevent different Tilix windows from communicating with each
- Set the window size; for example: 80x24, or 80x24+200+200
- -q --quake
- Open a window in quake mode or toggle existing quake mode window
- Show the Tilix preferences dialog directly.
