Tilda - Background Terminal

"Tilda is a "pop-up virtual terminal" for X, just like Yakuake (KDE) or Guake (GNOME), but a little more lightweight and a little more maintained than sjterm." Obtained from https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/tilda 

I've been looking around for something like this after watching some desktops on Arch Screenshot section on Google Plus and found that tilda fits my needs. 

It's really awesome to have it always there, since my latest setup is just openbox (with tint2 - freshly new installation :P), its fairly easy to set it up.

For Arch based distribution

pacman -S tilda

For Debian based distribution

apt-get install tilda

After installation you can just open it with tilda then right click it and configure it on preferences. Depending on your DE it may need some specific tweaks to work properly, I tested on Gnome alone and Openbox alone and it worked out of the box.

You must add Tilda to your applications startup so it will be always started as soon as user session start.
