recommend me a good terminal for X-win?


the konsole has small screen bugs and the font mess up the screen sometimes. Can someone recommend me a good terminal?

I know xterm is good but it's weak in i18n and I cannot see 2-byte codes characters.

I always use Eterm.

You can make in transparent and even shade the transparency with any color you wish. It also has nice shadow under the letters. This makes things better readable.

If you don't want shadows, but want to have transparency, you could also give aterm a look.

Thanks! both eterm and rxvt are very good terminal.

When I see eterm freezed up as well, I know it's a minor bug of kde. (Probably in particular language setting)
