[SOLVED] The terminal in the Arch installation

I've notice that the terminal in the Arch installation has interesting features: the TAB autocompletion shows lots of information, typing a command and using up/down arrow only navigates through the history of this command... I love it. I'm using Arch with LXDE and its lxterminal does not have those features. Is it possible to install the Arch-installation terminal in LXDE? Or maybe adapt lxterminal someway? Thanks.

The new isos use zsh apparently...

That's not a property of the terminal, but of the shell running there. The installation runs zsh instead of bash. Install zsh, and maybe some of the extra things from http://grml.org/zsh/, and you can have such a setup.

It's zsh, the new default shell for the Arch installation. You can read some more about it on the Archwiki.

What a great and quick answer! Thanks to all of you wink I will start from grml, and gradually changing things.
