Re: terminal emulator for lithium

Also this: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo … bug=827768

So there's no roxterm in Debian except for a residue of 2.9.5 in Jessie, which has a Release Critical bug related to GTK3, and was abandoned by the developer.

It looks as if the same upstream developer picked it up again and moved it to github (see the changelog), so there's no reason why he should change the name.

Maybe someone will re-adopt the revived roxterm as maintainer and upload it to Debian. Bullseye?

If Roxterm was still under development it would be a better choice than lxterminal... (ducks and runs) big_smile

Oh I really LOVED Roxterm...shame that there was no one offering to take it over from the original developer. Roxterm was the Swiss Army Knife of terminals smile

I think ROXTerm got picked up. It was moved to git and has seen a bit of development; mostly clearing the backlog of bug reports. It's the AUR, don't know what version is in the Debian repos.

Would be nice if this version gets back into Debian. It's been sorely missed.

Oh nice, it must appear the original developer took a break from it and decided to take a fresh look at it again. Hopefully the major bugs are getting fixed up and someone might step forward as the maintainer for it so it can be put back in Debian (hopefully for Bullseye).

Re: terminal emulator for lithium

^ IDK; the Readme reads like not much beyond the name is left from the original roxterm.

Re: terminal emulator for lithium

^But I think those changes/bloatification crept in before the break, not after the move to github. And the developer's name is definitely the same - unless it's been taken over by an imposter.  yikes
