Ok I've been using this console for a few days now and let me tell you its great, You can copy/paste with the mouse. Set an image as the background or even have a transparent background, all within a menu, Plus you can have terminal tabs just like a browser, really cool.
have fun

its located at Menu/Utility/Sakura
also icons were included if you wanted a desktop shortcut

Thanks ttuuxxx, I like it and it is working fine on Dingo, but how do you get the Commodore 64 look?

You do know there was already a .pet in the official PETget repo, right? Or is this just a newer version?

One problem with replacing rxvt with sakura is that some scripts change the colors in rxvt, but sakura doesn't accept those parameters. So either those scripts would need to be altered, or a wrapper would need to be set up that drops any options that sakura doesn't handle.

like this
right click --> Otions --> Set Opacity Levels
untick -->Disable Opacity --> set to "0" or a bit higher to give it a glass kind of look
enjoy !!

Barry tried replacing rxvt once already, a few versions back, and there were enough howls by the dog pack that he relented and put it back in. Rxvt should be kept until it dies. Any other console should be in addition (probably as a pet package), not as a replacement. Anyway rxvt works just fine, and lots of users have set up parameters to customize it and don't want to fiddle that again. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Rxvt does that too.

Well lets just say Rxvt is nice in a simple way, It does its job very well, If you want eye candy which most of us do, Then Rxvt falls behind, kind of like if you want to go out to a night club for some drinks, Well lets see
-The first bar is called, "Club Rxvt"
it has drinks, bar, table and chairs and a few nice looking ladies. You spend your whole night setting back admiring the scenery and go home alone. Evil or Very Mad THE END
-The second bar is called "Club SAKURA"
it has drinks, bar, table and chairs and a few nice looking ladies
But wait all of a sudden it has music and a dance floor with lasers and lights, The ladies get off their chairs and start bust'in a move.
You then get off your chair and start doing the grinding monkey dance.
Then you accidentally slip on a banana peel and fall on your butt. The ladies start to laugh and so do you, The tall blond bends over and and reaches out her hand to you. Meanwhile your face is red and blushing and the blond says "How Cute, your blushing, I like it when a Man is in touched with his inner feelings."
You then get up and dust your pants off as she walks away, Suddenly The blond yells out " Come over to my table."
You then strut your stride over to the blonds table where you spend hours talking and drinking. 3am rolls by and the Bar tender comes over to your table and says, "Ok its 3am time to go, you don't have to go home but you can't stay here."
The blond says to you thats ok we can always go back to my place for a night cap. Which you did without even giving it a second thought. What a great night indeed.
The next day you wake up and your not alone, The blond is laying beside you and you look over on the nightstand. A book of matches was setting on the table. you grab the matches and read the text, it says "SAKURA just what your Console Needed"

Hope this helps LOL

ps sorry I was bored.

i suggest VTE as a console replacement ( maybe sakura uses it also) because it supports unicode input/output for non-english languages ( for oriental languages it need's scim to be used)
that's very good for russian language because you do not need to load spacefic fonts and keymaps
it work by itself!
also you can set a transparent windows

for puppy 3 vte can be installed via gslapt

yes it uses the vte libs Smile
probably the same just more options. More of a desktop application than a server application. I don't think it will ever replace rxvt well not right now anyways, because I tried to replace it and it worked fine, But when I ran the petget manager it wouldn't work right, once I uninstalled .Sakura. rxvt/petget was working fine again.
How I did it was I renamed Sakura as rxvt and made a pet and installed it. The open terminal here in the right click menu worked fine, The desktop Console Icon worked fine, Just petget didn't work right, Might be a coding issue. Oh well I'll use the 2 applications for now until I can figure something out.
