I mostly use Terminal in non-KDE environments and Konsole in KDE. Usually with tmux.

I've never really found a need to look into other programs such as xterm/rxvt as they seem to do mostly the same job but require a great deal more tweaking..

I decided to switch to (Xfce 4.10's) Terminal.

256 colors out of the box: CHECK

Works with Source Code Pro: CHECK

Displays every character in Quickbrown.txt (out of the box, on Slackware 14.0) while the font is set to Source Code Pro: CHECK (XTerm can't do this).

Kerns fonts properly: CHECK (rxvt-unicode messes this up)

Works with the Solarized color scheme: CHECK

Thanks to all who recommended it.

xfce-terminal. Closest thing to the Bash Shell anyway.

Huh? All these terminal emulators use the shell that is your default shell. If your default shell is Bash then every terminal emulator is the closest thing to Bash, just because it actually is Bash.
But who uses Bash anyways?

Yep, zsh, mostly for the much better command-line completion.

Another xterm junkie, here. Can't stand the new terminals. Sometimes I wish for tabs on my xterms, but not enough to trade them in for something flakier.

Hello,

at first I want to say thanks to dugan who created this interesting thread. It inspired me to try some settings for xterm. So it seems xterm is much more useful than I thought.

But there is one thing I'm missing with xterm. When I use konsole or qterminal, I can paste into the terminal (with CTRL+SHIFT+V).
Question: is there a configuration for xterm which makes it possible to paste text (for example from a website) into the terminal?

Try the following:

1. Middle Mouse Button
2. Shift + Middle Mouse Button
3. Shift + Insert

Thanks for the answer, both Middle-Mouse-Button and SHIFT-INSERT work.

sycamorex: Thanks! Now I can paste with method #3 though my middle mouse button doesn't work anymore.
