Recomend a term-emu

Postby cds60601 » 2018-08-08 05:37

I would have preferred that Gnome-Terminal offer transparencies however, it appears that feature has been removed. I looked at xfc4-terminal (as a few folks mentioned they like it) but I assume those folks were using something other than Debian.

So, what would be a decent term that will offer transparencies. Would appreciate feedback.

Cheers
Chris

Xfce works on many distros so why would Debian be any different? Same goes to kde and gnome, they are not written to any spesific distro.

I use xfce, transparency works.

As I mentioned, I tried xfce4-terminal - the option is not there. And as for Gnome Terminal, same. In fact - unless I read some threads incorrectly, the main reason transparency was removed from G-Term was due to the fact it was more trouble then what it was worth to allow it to be available in Debian.
Please see this thread on this forum about G-Term:

UPDATED: Blah - I should have just read through the whole thing. mate-terminal will suffice for now.

Ok, sorry to misinform. It must been during Jessie when I tested it. Now there is no transparency in options of xfce4-terminal. I can confirm that.

Rxvt-unicode (256 colour version) with these resources set:
Code: Select all
URxvt.depth: 32
URxvt.background: [80]#000000

^ The [80] bit sets the opacity percentage.

Don't be fooled by the transparent resource option, it only sets fake transparency, my above configuration utilises the alpha channel (and so needs a running compositor to work).
