Which terminal emulator is least bloated and has most features? Which one are you using?
I am on urxvt right now.
since I'm a wm user, there is no need for me to use terminator. urxvt was great and very customizable until it failed on me doing basic copy/pasting. now i'm using termite and it does the job. idk if you can run it on one of the *buntus though.
Man, I really like that 80s green on black display, but I can't use it because dumbass normalfags would think I'm trying to be a hax0r or referencing the matrix or something gay like that.
terminator but right now am using xrvt for customization without limits
it literally has no features, not even scrollback.
I could find it useful on a machine with very limited resources.
But on a regular desktop urxvtc (and a daemon running in the background) performs similarly if not better and has a SHITLOAD more features.
I just tried using st for a few minutes. Can't apply patches. Can someone explain it to me?
I downloaded the 0.6 version, downloaded the 0.6 argb patch, rangit apply st-0.6-argbbg.diff, but when I run make it just throws a bunch of compiler errors.
Am I supposed to fix all this? Or am I missing something?
Check the st version you downloaded, and the version in the patch, maybe? I've never gone through that process though, I usually git clone st in some dir, go to suckless' website, download the patches, and apply them in the way I described...
I dunno, argbbg still doesn't work. I guess I'll stick with my already riced urxvt.
Thanks for the pre-riced st, though. Might serve as a good example for when I eventually switch to it and rice it myself.
I looked at st, which shits on other terms for being "bloated" yet requires external patches to add missing features, and this is presented as a feature in of itself.
And these features are basic things, like scrollback or compatibility with stdin from an external program
Is this what autism looks like?
