What terminal emulator does /g/ use? right now I'm using xterm but I'm just wondering if there is something better.
>>
rxvt-unicode (urxvt)
It's pretty decent.
>>
URxvt

>>51416306
if you're a fag, try termite. otherwise, go with urxvt. nothing else is worth the time of day
>>
>>51416306
I use mate-terminal
>>
xfce terminal & Terminology
>>
e-term

>something better.
>something better than xterm
Doesn't exist lol.

I used urxvt but after moving to wayland I couldn't find a way for it to parse my settings again. So I started using terminator. I must say it's pretty noice after a bit of configuration

This.

termite

>>51416365
I'm pretty anti-bloat generally, so I tried st once. Never again. It's really shit.

But the source code is very clean, so I might use it as a base to build a better terminal emulator. One day. Maybe
>>
xterm is fine and actually fills in spaces too small for terminal text as well.

urxvt is only useful if you need your terminal to run as a daemon because it takes your shitbox more than a split second to spawn a new terminal

>>51416365
>The configuration is done in config.h (like in dwm).

oh god
>>
>>51416365
>Recompile to change colours
>Need to maintain ABS tree to automatically patch in config whenever program is updated
No thanks, urxvt works and is fast enough.

sakura is p cool <3
>>
>>51419172
>>51419178
I thought it was cool, and a good reason to do a bash script.
>>
>>51416306
terminator with zsh configured in the oh-my-zsh framework.

>muh hipster shell
to be honest family it is really /comfy/
>>
>>51416306

So far we have three contenders for best terminal emulator:

>urxvt
>terminator
>xterm

Advantages and disadvantages of each?
>>
>>51419414
terminator is redundant, just use tmux.
xterm is really old, but still performs in a pinch.
i prefer urxvt because it can run as a daemon and clients (urxvtd and urxvtc)
>>
I just use xfce4-terminal with dwm, desu. Works like a charm.

Terminology

urxvt
