    Some mice don't have a scroll wheel, they only have two buttons.

    i use xterm, you don't need scrollbars, if something scrolls off screen then just pipe it through a pager like less
    Code:
    ls | grep ogg | sort -r | less
    that's one of the great things about linux, being able to directly pipe your output to another program, or sending it straight to a file
    Code:
    ls | grep ogg | sort -r > ogglist.txt
    it's as simple as that, learn the power of pipes

    Yeah, eterm is nice too. Espesially the scrollbar if you compare it to xterm's, aterm's or rxvt's scrollbar...

    I'm using aterm, I don't see a reason to try anything else.

    Eterm, of course...

    I aways use Eterm, aways used Eterm untill I find something more "free will" than it, I may change, but now, I prefer the Eterm --scrollbar no --buttonbar no -O -x --shade 16 --tint (lots of options :P ) -F smoothansi -c (lots here too) , make me feel dancing :P



    Eterm really :rock:

    I usually run aterm, but the latest mrxvt is looking really good so I might play with it some... it features multi-tabs, variable line spacing, truetype fonts, and transparency, and is still lightweight in size.
