At work we have Chromecast setup in all conference rooms. Chromecast for Linux does not cast the whole screen, just to a Chrome browser tab. How do I show my terminal during a presentation?
Install butterfly, a python based terminal emulation program.
Install it via
pip install butterfly and follow the instructions on the
Upstart script for Ubuntu 14.04
Butterfly provides a systemd startup script, which will be great for Jessie and
other distros running systemd. Unfortunately 14.04 still uses Upstart. Here is
/etc/init/butterfly.conf startup script I use
# Butterfly - Python Web Terminal Emulator # https://github.com/paradoxxxzero/butterfly description "Web Terminal Emulator" stop on runlevel  exec /usr/local/bin/butterfly.server.py
I am experimenting with using
tmux in this terminal emulator browser tab and
then only have 1 window open on my laptop to do web searches and write code.
Let us see how that goes.
