Install different terminal than LXTerminal

Sun Jan 07, 2018 6:32 pm

I am curious what other terminals do exist for Raspbian OS. I googled that multiple times, but no luck.
Is there other terminal tools and do they provide better usability?

I use terminator across all my Linux machines (including the RPi when I'm using a desktop).Having said that, I don't use LXDE either.
Headless PI. OMG, someone cut it's head off. Oh, hang on. it didn't have one to start with.

I used the Synaptic Package Manager to install the Gnome Terminal.

When I run gnome-terminal on the LXTerminal, it does start. However, how can I get a button inside the start menu or on my desktop to start the Gnome terminal?
