Just like any other terminal emulator for UNIX-based systems, xfce4-terminal emulates the text-based terminal that you most likely see when your system is starting up. Although there are a plethora of other terminal emulators available for the X environment, xfce terminal offers several useful features :
+
The '''intel64-ivybridge''' subarch specifically supports processors based on Intel's [[Wikipedia:Ivy_Bridge_(microarchitecture)|Ivy Bridge microarchitecture]] with AVX instructions. Desktop processors are branded as 3th Generation Intel Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7. Many of the released processors (desktop and mobile variants) are APUs, containing integrated Intel graphics support, and include the Core i7-4800 and 4900 Series Processors. Ivy Bridge Xeon processors include the Xeon E5 v2, E7 v2 and Pentium 1400 Series v2 Families.
* Multiple tabs per terminal window
+
* Most aspects of the terminal, including the toolbars, font, and scrollbar, can easily be configured by using the 'preferences' dialog window
+
* Support for both MultiScreen and Xinerama
+
  
== Installation ==
+
Intel AVX instructions require operating system support and have been in the Linux kernel since 2.6.30. Additionally, they require slightly more power to execute. When executing these instructions, the processor may run at less than the marked frequency to maintain thermal design power (TDP) limits.
If you have emerged the {{c|xfce4-meta}} package, then you should have {{c|xfce4-terminal}} installed on your system. If you are interested in using {{c|xfce4-terminal}} with a desktop environment other than xfce, perhaps in a standalone window manager such as Openbox, you will have to emerge the program using the following command:
+
<console>
+
###i## emerge xfce4-terminal
+
</console>
+
Chances are, if you are installing {{c|xfce4-terminal}} in a window manager or desktop environment different from xfce, it will pull in some xfce-based dependencies that it requires to run. If you do not like the idea of cluttering up your lean system with a few additional packages, consider checking out something with fewer requirements, such as Xterm.
+
  
== Usage ==
+
This subarch does not support non-AVX Ivy Bridge processors, such as the Pentium G and Celeron G series. For these CPUs, use the [[Corei7|Corei7 subarch]].
If you are using the xfce4 desktop environment and {{c|xfce4-terminal}} is installed on your system, it should be located in your applications menu under the category "System." If you are not running the xfce4 desktop environment, launch the xfce terminal as you would any other application that you have installed on your system. After you launch the terminal, you will notice the terminal window has appeared on your screen (what a surprise, right?). You can now begin hacking away to your heart's desire from your newly installed terminal emulator.
+
 
+
=== Configuration Options ===
+
If something doesn't look right with the terminal to you, chances are, you can configure your problem away. To open the {{c|xfce4-terminal}} preferences dialog, go to the menubar at the top of the terminal window and select the category "Edit." Then choose the subcategory "Preferences..." to launch the preferences window.
+
==== Font ====
+
To change the default font that the terminal uses, navigate to the tab  labeled "Appearance" in the preferences dialog. Then, select the first box that says "Font." After selecting this window, you will be able to choose from any of the fonts installed on your system to use as the default {{c|xfce4-terminal}} font. For a really nice looking terminal font, consider emerging the package {{Package|media-fonts/ubuntu-font-family}} and then selecting the "Ubuntu Mono" option from the font selection dialog. The font seems to look best between sizes 10 and 12 in the terminal.
+
==== Transparency ====
+
if you are interested in having a transparent background to your terminal window, navigate to the "Appearance" tab of the preferences dialog and select the box below "Background." After clicking on this box, choose the option "Transparent Background." After choosing the option, a slider should appear below the box that allows you to set the alpha level of the background. The closer the value is to 1, the more opaque the background will be. The closer the value is to 0, the background will become more transparent. If you do not get the desired transparency effect after changing this value, you may not be running a compositor on your desktop, which is required to have active transparent backgrounds on windows like this one. For a fairly efficient, very customizable compositor, consider reading the page on [[Package:Compton|Compton]].
+
==== Scrollbar Location ====
+
To change where the scrollbar is located on the terminal window, open the preferences dialog. In the first tab, choose the second to last option. By clicking on the listbox next to the text "Scollbar is:" you can set the scrollbar location to either be disabled, on the left of the terminal window, or on the right of the terminal window.
+
==== Default Geometry ====
+
if you think that the {{c|xfce4-terminal}} window is too small or too big when it launches for the first time, you can change its default size quite easily. To do so, open the preferences dialog for the terminal and navigate to the tab labeled "Appearance." Above the section titled "Tab Activity Indicator" are two text boxes next to one another. The first one from the left sets how many columns of text the window will have on launch and the second one sets how many rows of text the window will have. By increasing the number of columns, the window will become wider and by increasing the number of rows, the window will become 'taller.' To shrink the width or height of the window, decrease the value for columns or rows, respectively.

Detailed Description

The intel64-ivybridge subarch specifically supports processors based on Intel's Ivy Bridge microarchitecture with AVX instructions. Desktop processors are branded as 3th Generation Intel Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7. Many of the released processors (desktop and mobile variants) are APUs, containing integrated Intel graphics support, and include the Core i7-4800 and 4900 Series Processors. Ivy Bridge Xeon processors include the Xeon E5 v2, E7 v2 and Pentium 1400 Series v2 Families.

Intel AVX instructions require operating system support and have been in the Linux kernel since 2.6.30. Additionally, they require slightly more power to execute. When executing these instructions, the processor may run at less than the marked frequency to maintain thermal design power (TDP) limits.

This subarch does not support non-AVX Ivy Bridge processors, such as the Pentium G and Celeron G series. For these CPUs, use the Corei7 subarch.
