Aterm and text mode, mostly.

There's a zillion but aterm should really be up there and I know a lot of people use Eterm, too.





-- Totally off-topic, scuze me, but real quick: Why'd you finally upgrade, Tink, and how are you liking it?

Several reasons:

1.) in a state of temporary dementia during maintenance
work (I was weeding out stuff I no longer use in /usr/local)
I pressed CrsUp in bash one time to often followed by enter,
deleting /usr/local/lib, and couldn't be bothered to re-install a
ton of stuff manually...

2.) I did want to have a look at soem Gtk2 based things,
and didn't want to resolve the dependencies manually.

3.) I had thought about moving to gcc 3.x for a while, just
because of the changes in respect to ANSI C++ compatibility,
and didn't want to do that manually, either. And no, I don't like
to get slack-packs from other sources :}

As far as happieness goes ... it's OK, I guess, not too many
changes. Took me ages to get my flux 0.1.14 to work again,
though.


Cheers,
Tink

Ow. Sorry about the libs. The other stuff's at least on the bright side. It's definitely not necessary to upgrade every five minutes but eventually it starts to add up. Glad it suits you okay.

Now on with the thread.

I use rxvt like this:
Code:
rxvt -bg black -fg white -sb -sr
White text on black background with a scrollbar on the right.

For me its faster than the alternatives.
