    Hey guy's and gal's,

    I am not a huge fan of Gnome but thought you would find this useful, it's a terminal in the style of that used in the original Quake game, you press F12 while in the GUI and it descends from the top taking up about 1/3 of the screen.
    Not essential but thought it was quite cool

    Here is the link http://guake.org/

    Enjoy.

    There's lightweight a quake-like terminal x11/yeahconsole
    KDE, Gnome, etc are not required, only X.
    The appropriate section of .Xdefaults might look as below:
    Code:
    ! yeahconsole
    yeahconsole*term:xterm
    yeahconsole*consoleHeight:25
    yeahconsole*toggleKey:None+F12
    #yeahconsole*background:#e7e3e7
    yeahconsole*background:#000000
    yeahconsole*foreground:#737373
    yeahconsole*cursorColor:#737373
    yeahconsole*xOffset:1
    yeahconsole*restart:1
    yeahconsole*keyFull:None+F10
    yeahconsole*keySmaller:Control+KP_Subtract
    yeahconsole*keyBigger:Control+KP_Add
    yeahconsole*faceName: "Bitstream Vera Sans Mono":size=10:style=Regular:antialias=false:hinting=false
    yeahconsole*metaSendsEscape
    #yeahconsole*screenWidth:950
