I voted for LXTerminal. Lightweight, has the features we want.

looks like roxterm is now died. https://sourceforge.net/p/roxterm/di...hread/60da6975

LXTerminal does it for me.

KDE's Konsole gets my vote. I like the multiple tabs. You can also detach a tab to its own window, or if you drag the last tab in a window to another window, the former goes away. As clean or as cluttered as you like. LOL

Why not Konsole then? ;)

Konsole is just great if you want to install half of KDE just to get a decidedly average terminal emulator....

(I voted xterm)

vnc is not a terminal emulator.

Seeing as I did 99% of my work in GNOME terminal it has to be that, I suppose.

Years ago it was Konsole. But as time has progressed, I've become a huge fan of st.

Being very interested in terminal emulation on Unix and Linux, I fetched st from git, built it after reading the README, compiled the st.info, started it, stopped it, swapped default foreground and background colors, started it again and ran my tiny Unicode output test (which I need as part of my daily job)

$ ./st

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

So, st is not developed enough to be useful.

For me it's xfce4-terminal. Even if I use another DE, it gets installed ;)

i love the reluctance in that statement!
why don't you just try sth else?
if you "need" gui, maybe lxterminal or xfce4-terminal, you'llbe surprised how much faster they open with virtually identical functionality compared to gnome-terminal.
otherwise, as i've already stated: urxvt!

that's a most likely erroneous conclusion.
many people are very happy with st.
i think you're supposed to compile the latest realease.
if that fails, too, there's likely to be a precompiled version in your repos. which doesn't make much sense in this case, but at least you could test for segfaults.

I used st-git (git://git.suckless.org/st). If that is not the latest, I would not know where to get a more recent one.

The fact that there are many happy users is no guarantee that I would be happy with it or that it is bug-free, but this is the fact for ALL software. It works both ways. The fact that *I* am (mare than) happy with Plasma5/tcsh/elvis/hexchat/claws-mail/perl does not make it bugfree of guarantee that other users will find a fantastic workspace in that combination. It is the advantage of Linux: so much to choose from.

There used to be a hates-software mailing list, but that petered out.

My distro (openSUSE TumbleWeed) did not have a precompiled package, which is why I used the git repo and compiled from scratch.

I had no drive to check out the segfaults and report back. I have enough alternatives available that meet my needs to put my energy in other (OpenSource) projects.
