How to install Deepin Terminal on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

Let’s learn the commands to install the simple Deepin terminal app on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Jammy Jelly Fish to replace the default Gnome terminal. 

Deepin Terminal is an open source and created by Deepin Technology, the developers behind the Linux OS. The key thing which attracts the user to the Deepin terminal emulator is its simple interface with useful functions. It offers a tabby interface where you can create more workspaces just like we do in browsers. Further, we can create customized keyboard shortcuts for running different commands. For example, you don’t want to write a system update command to run it manually, every time, then set a keyboard shortcut for it. After that, every time you just need to press that shortcut and the terminal will automatically execute the update command.

For those who don’t know Deepin is a Linux distribution based on Debian. It uses its desktop environment and focuses on an elegant design. The reference to macOS is not to be overlooked – which combines the best of both worlds for Linux users.  However many of us are intrigued with the applications of Deepin but do not want to install the OS completely on our system. If such is the case and you like the Deepin Terminal then in this article we discuss how to install it on Ubuntu Linux systems.
