Tilda is a GTK+ terminal emulator. Its design was inspired from consoles in computer games, such as Quake, which slide down from the top of the screen when a key is pressed, typically the tilde, and slide back up when the key is pressed again.

Running Tilda can be faster than launching a new terminal with a keyboard shortcut because the program is already loaded into memory; it can be useful to people who frequently find themselves opening and closing terminals.

It is free software licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public License.

Dependencies[edit]

Tilda uses Virtual console and not the newer Kmscon.
