are you deliberately misunderstanding me?
i pointed you to the latest release - not the same as the current git master.
but even so, there's a bunch of things could've gone wrong when you edited the config.h, and then again during compilation. doesn't mean the software is "not developed enough".

i guess you're not very familiar with compiling software yourself?

Huh? I tried release first. Segfault, that used git. Segfault.

I did not alter config.h (other that changing the default foreground and background).

I'm co-maint of several OS projects, amongst which is perl5 CORE. I port OS projects to HP-UX for the last two decades. I'd say I am VERY familiar with compiling software myself.

Where did you read that I am trying to misunderstand you?

Not seeking an argue here, just clarification. I did hope my previous post was hinting there as well.

I voted for Terminator, because that's what I used in 2017. I'm planning to switch back to st for 2018.

Voted Gnome Terminal, but I really don't care - I'll use whichever one comes with the distro I'm using.

I like Gnome Terminal 2.x, which now lives as MATE Terminal.

I used LXTerminal for a while. It doesn't have screen-split feature, so I ended up switching all the way to QTerminal.

xfce4-terminal
It does pretty much all I want:
  • font set support, because unicode
  • a few changeable preset themes
  • tabs
  • 256 colors (it's a nice touch)
  • scrollback!
  • URL support
  • The config gui is simple.
This isn't the only terminal emulator that has these features.

st, though on second thought I probably should have voted for guake, as it's the one I use the most.

Everyone should have a key bound to a drop down terminal. It's incredibly convenient. I use that silly "Menu" key which has replaced right super on most modern keyboards.
