PostPosted: Wed 18 Nov 2009, 07:02    Post subject:  Stjerm - Dropdown Terminal Emulator  

Home: http://code.google.com/p/stjerm-terminal-emulator/
Version: 0.13
Quote:
Stjerm is a GTK+-based drop-down terminal emulator similar to the consoles used in PC games such as Quake and Half-Life 2. Stjerm sets itself apart from similar programs by providing a minimalistic interface combined with a small file size, lightweight memory usage and easy integration with composite window managers such as Compiz.

As stjerm needs a starter-script, i've renamed the bin to stjerm-bin and called the script stjerm. To alter the look and feel, you'll have to edit
Code:
/usr/bin/stjerm


Sterm is started (and stopped) from menu => utility. it runs in the background and will be 'dropped' down by pressing 'F11'. this could also be altered in /usr/bin/stjerm.

Needs vte from here: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=363109#363109

Compiled and tested in 4.31.

One thing i forgot:

It does not have to be that 'ugly'. You could also have background-images, fake-transparency...

doc is at /usr/share/doc . remember you'll have to change the settings in /usr/bin/stjerm.

Subject description: will improve with use & user-familiarity
 

I like it. Not clear on how to start other tabs and a few things (but then I'm pretty much a lightweight with cli or even keycommands for that matter), like trying 'stjerm -help' made it terminate itself (but it did start arora and I can edit the html help a bit to suit, Composer is good at that). But for most everything else it's real handy and looks good. Not really sure that it does a true translucency (Jwm-beta with kcompmgr will show a serial focus-trans with overlaid windows) from the little I tried it there, but it's quite good at automatically getting out of the way if focus isn't held.

Nope, not ugly at all - easy to preset the options for as many different looks/ways as you like (but only one may be on-deck at a time, I believe .. one of the reasons it'd be an advantage to have tabs like mrxvt). I'll figure it out soon enough, probably.

`f00,

Code:
Ctrl+Shift+T => new tab
Ctrl+Shift+W => close actual tab

the 'ugly'-post was because of my grey-preset.

translucency/transparency:
the doc says, that is uses real transparency if a compmgr is found, else uses fake-transparency.

yes '--help' and "--info" terminates the app, seems to be a bug. another one is, that if you toggle to fullscreen (right-click option) you can't toggle back to the previous size, it allways stays in fullscreen until you restart.

multiple pids is normal for some apps (try tree view in htop to see the relationship) - nothing to 'fix', really .. that's just how it works. ipager's another one that does basically the same thing. Wine apps generally have a slew of 'support' when loaded .. and so on.

Other than being a bit 'heavy' for a terminal emulator, stjerm's a nice handy alternative (yup, it does do tabs Smile
