lightweight terminal emulator for X?

lightweight terminal emulator for X?

Post by giacomo boff » Tue, 18 Mar 1997 04:00:00



i have installed RH4.0, and i have access to the following terminal
emulators:

 - xterm
 - nxterm, aka color_xterm & xterm_color
 - rxvt

with rxvt promoted as the lightweight one... but it seems that some
featuritis gravis hit rxvt, as ps -aux reports

USER       PID %CPU %MEM  SIZE   RSS TTY STAT START   TIME COMMAND    
root       489  0.0  3.7  3476  2360   2 S   13:51   0:00 nxterm
root      1265  1.8  3.5  3276  2252  p0 S   14:21   0:00 xterm
jim        503  0.9  3.4  2964  2164  p0 S   13:52   0:16 rxvt

i hope that some savy user could address me to a real low-fat
emulator, that possibly compiles out of the box on linux

thanks in advance, ciao

  src        975  0.0  2.3  1676   936  ?  S   17:51   0:00 rxvt

Try recompiling rxvt with less features.

1. Terminal Emulators/ Virtual Terminals

Look in your current or $HOME directory where you normally run 'ate'.
There should be a file called "ate.def".  Edit this file and at the
end of it you should find three lines that read something like:

CAPTURE_KEY  002
MAINMENU_KEY 026
PREVIOUS_KEY 022

These lines define the ASCII values of the three control keys in 'ate'.
By defaults, CTRL-B toggles file capture, CTRL-Z returns to the main
menu, and CTRL-V returns to the previous screen.  To change these,
simple edit the file.  Specify the decimal version of the ASCII value
that you want to do these functions.
