I just installed Linux Mandrake 8.0, am using the KDE that came
with it, and XFree86-4.0.3-7, and I'm looking for a terminal program (such
as nxterm, xterm, Konsole, rxvt, etc.) that has as many of these features
-- Pg up and pg down keys actually scroll up and down within that
terminal window, as opposed to acting like the arrow keys and bringing up
that session's history.
-- CTRL-D once too many times does *not* close the terminal, like
-- Supports the -bg and -fg options, or the background and
foreground can be configured from a menu, and the settings would be
-- I like to have the current user's login name in the titlebar,
so support for -title would be helpful.
-- Support for ANSI color codes in some way, as I have them in
root's PS1 so the prompt stands out more.
-- The ability to select and paste with the mouse (left button and
middle button, respectively.) Rxvt and Konsole won't let me paste for
And that's about it, I think. nxterm was just fine back when I
was using RH 6.0, but I can't seem to find it now on this machine
(I do see it as part of the XFree86-Tools-4.0.3-5 RPM on rpmfind.net, but
that package also has files that already exist on my sytem, and I don't
wanna muck things up like that.) If anybody has any idea of what programs
I should try, or where I can get the latest nxterm by itself, I'm open for
suggestions. Hmm, someone also told me once that alot of those features
listed above can be set in an .X* file? Which one, and which parameters.
I'd appreciate any tips. Thanks.
