A better console for Windows – cygwin + console March 22, 2007

Posted by maxmil in : Utils , trackback

Tired of cmd.exe in windows i am pleased with my new set up with cygwin within console. Console has a very tasty and easily customizable gui and cygwin offers all the basic Unix commands.

This is how to install an set it all up:

1) Download setup.exe from cygwin and install (note: cannot install to directory that contains spaces (linke “Program Files”)
2) Download Console (Version 2) and unpack.
3) Run program Console.exe
4) Edit settings, in main tab put shell -> C:\cygwin\cygwin.bat
