So what's the best terminal out there? I used to use terminator but I feel it's a bit bloated, I would just use the default terminal for XFCE4 but it's missing a lot of features I use, any suggestions?

I'm using urxvt right now. It's basically unusable without configuration though.

Use ST from suckless.Its code is small and simple and most functionalities you'll want are either already built in or can be added trough patches.

>I would just use the default terminal for XFCE4 but it's missing a lot of features I use
out of curiosity, what features do you use that xfce4-terminal is missing?
>>
>>61853349
Yeah, I've tried urxvt a couple times but didn't have the time to config it, might try it again soon
>>61853360
Thank you.

>>61853375
using shift and arrow keys to select text

Xfce4 builds on the already excellent gnome terminal. I can't imagine any major features missing from it. Urxvt is okay, but to truly make the most of it you'd need knowledge of Perl, otherwise it has fewer features than xfce4/gnome terminal. The major draw is its lightness but those mentioned before are light enough in my opinion. St is barebones as well and in my experience I couldn't get the delete key working even after patching it, so I don't think it's worth it either.

seconding st, literally the only thing it doesn't (and can't without a major patch that doesn't currently exist) properly display images w3m/neofetch, ranger works fine though. fast as hell and tiny
>>
>>61853517
please enlightenly about this "stock" terminal
>>
>>61853360
>>61853564
I'm having trouble installing it and the README is no help, can I have some help from you guys?
>>
>>61853531
>>61853407
That's fair enough. Though surely xfce4 has some sort of method for selecting text with a keyboard? I use the mouse for that so I hadn't considered it.
>>
>>61853577
??? the basic terminal that comes preinstalled on your OS
>>
>>61853600
extract it
cd into st dir
install dependencies (?)
make
sudo make install

Off the top of my head
>>
>>61853564
Not OP, but how do you copy / paste by default in st? That was the only issue I had with it and it was a fatal one.
>>
>>61853327
Try guake.
>>
>>61853695
>trying to copy paste through intended methods in linux
just give the fuck up on this and cheat your ass off:

>use parcellite (or whatever clipboard manager) to keep your x selection and clipboard synchronized
>install xdotool and bind a keyboard combination to xdotool click 2: middle-clicking seems to be the one 'paste' command that works pretty much anywhere
>on console, use `xsel` (or $(xsel) if you like) when applicable
>if you use vim, install a version of vim with system clipboard features enabled and you can copy/paste from there using the system registers

sidestep all the bullshit
>>
>>61853655
Alright, have it installed
>>
>>61853880
eesh, shift+arrow keys doesnt work
>>
>bloated
stopped reading there. most of you wouldn't know bloated if it fucked you in the ass.
>>
>>61853922
Me-ow anon.
>>
>>61853695
You do shift+alt+v to paste and +c to copy.
>>
>>61853901
What program are you running? Also what do you use those keybinds for?
>>
>>61853901
Maybe you could use tmux instead and learn the copy mode, anon.

Try using it with w3m to display images, it's bugged sadly.
>>
>>61854041
Oh that I think you didn't properly use the term info that comes with the source code. Or maybe just read suckless page on St I think there's a patch to that.

i use terminology, dead nyan cat meme theme is also cute

Joke's on you, I'm only sucking cocks in secret.

>>61854902
Didn't do shit with it for years, so you probably would have to update the code to work with the current site.

Terminology. It is magical!

Gnome terminal is slow as shit.

>>61853577
xterm. It comes with X11 and is the most portable and one of the most featurefull
>>
>>61853360

st is basically the opposite of bloated
there is no reason it needs to be configured from source and not a small file in your home directory

features no one ever uses
