There are various ways to install Cool Retro Term in Linux. One distro-agnostic way would be to use Snap. If your Linux distribution has Snap support enabled, you can use this command to install cool-retro-term:
This is the name of the font face used in the profile. The terminal will try to fallback to Consolas if this can't be found or is invalid. To learn about the other variants of the default font, Cascadia Mono, visit the Cascadia Code page.
Windows Terminal displays icons for each profile which the terminal generates for any built-in shells, for example: PowerShell Core, PowerShell, and any installed Linux/WSL distributions. Each profile refers to a stock icon via the ms-appx URI scheme. You can refer to you own custom icons by entering a path in your settings.json file:
Accepts: backgroundImage, backgroundImageAlignment, backgroundImageOpacity, backgroundImageStretchMode, cursorHeight, cursorShape, cursorColor, colorScheme, foreground, background, selectionBackground, experimental.retroTerminalEffect, experimental.pixelShaderPath
This setting allows a user to specify the path to a custom pixel shader to use with the terminal content. This is an experimental feature and its continued existence is not guaranteed. For more details on authoring custom pixel shaders for the terminal, see this documentation.
Cool-Retro-Term is a terminal emulator program that gives you a terminal window which looks like your average terminal running on a computer monitor made between the late 1970s and the mid 1980s. You can choose which monitor you want it to mimic with a fair selection or profiles. It's a fun thing to play around with for about 3 minutes. It is not very usable as a regular terminal.
Cool-Retro-Term gives you a "retro" terminal window which functions the same as any other terminal such as konsole and xfce4-terminal. It just looks different than regular terminals running on your desktop. Some people will assume it's actually a real CRT monitor when you post screenshots of Cool-Retro-Term window.
You can right-click anywhere in the terminal window and get a menu where you can choose different display profiles such as Green Scanlines", Apple ][, Vintage and IBM DOS. There's also some Settings you can play around with.
Usability isn't there and it is not the purpose of this terminal, looking at it's output is not something you can stand using for very long. It looks retro and kind of cool and it's fun to use for about 3 minutes. It's also suitable for making cool-looking screenshots.
You can use it as a regular terminal if you prefer a terminal which look cool but isn't very usable since you will have a hard time reading the intentionally blurry output. cool-retro-term is built using a QML port of qtermwidget so it is actually a very solid terminal program below it's barely readable retro-looking output.
cool-retro-term is in most distributions repositories under that name. You can find compilation instructions, source code and a ready-to-use AppImage at -retro-term if it is not in your distribution or you want the absolute latest version.
Feel like taking another trip down memory lane? With the assistance of an excellent fun free retro terminal emulator fittingly called Cool Retro Term, you can experience the golden yesteryears of cathode display computing and pretend your shiny new Mac is an ancient Apple II or IBM workstation.
"They've remade this former TWA terminal into a fun hotel/bar/restaurant," she explained. It's actually the TWA Hotel, a 512-room hotel which opened in 2019 and repurposed the iconic TWA Flight Center. Originally, the terminal was designed by Eero Saarinen, an architect known for his neo-futuristic designs.
@michelenp introduced viewers of the video to one of the exhibit spots in the terminal too, which displays 37 full TWA uniforms from 1945 to 2001. The New-York Historical Society curated the different exhibits in the hotel, which are free of charge and always open to the public.

Then press the key combination, and up comes a searchable list of commands in a style familiar to users of Visual Studio Code. Use the arrow keys to select a command and press Enter. These commands control the appearance and behaviour of the Terminal itself, such as changing the font size or duplicating a tab. Users can also amuse themselves with options like "Toggle retro terminal effect", which "will emulate a classic CRT display with scan lines and blurry text edges. This is an experimental feature and its continued existence is not guaranteed," state the docs. In version 1.3 the Command Palette is enabled by default, and there is a command line mode that lets you run wt commands on the current window (wt being the executable that runs the Terminal).
Focus mode, which again is "not bound by default", hides the tabs and title bar. Maximise the Terminal, hide the taskbar, and enter focus mode for an immersive command line experience. Add retro mode and travel back in time.
The DevTerm is a new portable computer with a very old aesthetic. Designed to look like an old school portable terminal, this modular, open source computer features a 6.8 inch, 1280 x 480 pixel IPS display, a keyboard, and battery module plus an optional built-in thermal printer.
Exquisite retro angle and extremely ideal to have process module as opposed to having a nonremovable CPU/figure. On the opposite side, I speculate 21680 batteries limit could just conveyance little battery life, more terrible with more ravenous register modules
It accomplishes this feat of technical wizardry via an absolutely staggering number of settings: ranging from visual effects (such as CRT burn-in, flicker, and static) to retro styled fonts and visual warping and borders. All of which can be saved as individual profiles (which can then be saved as JSON text files for easy backup and sharing).
John Wiseman has been working on a cool old-school retro styled aircraft ADS-B radar that runs entirely within a terminal window. So no GUI desktop should be required. The project, called "coole-radar", is available as open source code on GitHub.

You can customize the Windows Terminal app with custom fonts and text settings, but you may want to make deeper changes. Thankfully, Windows Terminal allows you to customize its appearance with new color schemes, background images, and special retro effects.
Your terminal window should update automatically to show the effect. If you want to switch it off, repeat the steps above and click the Retro terminal effects slider to place it in the off position.
The Krueger retrofit unit is ideal for converting a mechanical terminal unit into a VAV terminal unit. Designed to retrofit constant volume units, Krueger\u2019s RVE retrofit product offers compatible controls for most building automation systems and installation convenience. With Krueger Retrofit VAV terminals in place, building owners can make use of a variety of fan volume control options.A major concern when retrofitting is downtime. Since the RVE terminal unit is compact and can be installed through the ceiling grid, installation costs and downtime are reduced.Additional uses for the RVE unit are in exhaust and non reheat supply applications. The stainless steel RVE is ideal for lab applications where the exhaust consists of corrosive materials. Supply applications might include any situation where a round to round connection is desired.
HEXUS reported upon the announcement of the revamped command line application for Windows back in May 2019. It was unveiled during the opening day of BUILD2019. The app is touted as a "modern, fast, efficient, powerful, and productive terminal application for users of command-line tools and shells like Command Prompt, PowerShell, and WSL". At the time we learned that it would be packed with new attractions such as multiple tabs, lots of settings and configuration options, and DirectX text rendering. 350c69d7ab
