    Which packages are for the terminal emulators?


    Using Slackware 12.2

    I would like to know which are the packages for the terminal emulators?
    I use the shell and the Linux Konsole (applet added to the panel)

    I have some problems with the color: white on black, and I want to reinstall them to see if that helps.

    Thanks.

    xterm and rxvt are the two that I use, I think there is a tarball full of terminal emulators somewhere in the source packages though.
    What specific problems are you having?

    Sorry I just reread your post, try rxvt -rv or rxvt -r to get the white letters on back background, of if you have transparency set up, use the "-ip" switch in rxvt to activate it.

  4. $spacer_open
    $spacer_close

    Is there a way to adjust the text size?

    Thanks.

    You can specify fonts in RXVT with an -fn "/path/to/your/font". move cautiously though, you could end up looking at Chinese characters.
    Read the man page on RXVT ( man rxvt ), don't hesitate to ask again if you have questions. I'm not an expert, but I have messed around with that app quite a bit.
