Yakuake is my favorite, and Terminal while on XFCE. Terminator seems interesting, since it has logging facility. I will give it a try.

Konsole mostly, xterm sometimes. Whatever is default with other DE/WMs.
Liberation mono font.

xterm, as it works well for what I do, and maybe out of laziness to try another one. Alt+F1 in Fluxbox to launch one without any customization.

I've been using Konsole from KDE for as long as I remember. Love it for tabs and the ability to do most of the tasks (like creating/moving/closing tabs) using keyboard. Have Linux color scheme set up with DejaVu Sans Mono font (bold disabled).

I'd just thought I'd mention, while I use Konsole a lot. I also frequently log out back to the console or Ctrl-Alt F# to a another.

I primarily use Terminal of XFCE since it's very stable and included by default. Besides, I really like Terminator with its "tile" arrangement and use it occasionally. However, Terminator still has crash issue in some use cases, so it's not stable enough to become my main emulator.

Regarding xterm, maybe it does not have full Unicode support (only shows a subset of Chinese characters here).

I use Monospace in 9 if that's any help - I've tried to clone Terminal as much as possible, I like the look but not the overhead.

xterm started with the command:

Code:
/usr/bin/X11/xterm +sb -fg black -bg white -geometry 99x49+64+0 -fn 9x15int
where 9x15int is defined in fonts.alias from /usr/share/fonts/misc as:

Code:
9x15int        -misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--15-140-75-75-c-90-iso10646-1
it fits perfectly my Window Maker desktop.

Thanks for that, successfully changed to Xterm and it looks like my old Roxterm config now, except the missing transparency, but that is something I can live with. In fact, Xterm is much lighter on CPU usage when scrolling large amounts of text than Roxterm.

Thanks for that again!

I have cobbled one together myself over time, but yours is more complete and comprehensive - it just replaced (most of) my own.
