A GTK2 tabbed terminal emulator

Edit: Unfortunately, the images originally included in this post are gone, because of hosting problems in late 2009. My apologies.

I didn’t think such an animal existed, but here it is — Sakura.

Follows your GTK theme, has a nice right-click menu and copies and pastes like a text editor. Pseudotransparency, customizable backgrounds and excellent font effects. It’s just about perfect. 😉 This might be the end of rxvt-unicode for me.

That’s the Arch version, by the way. Ubuntu users will need to compile from scratch. 😈

    Pretty easy to compile in Ubuntu (Gutsy, at least): just get libgtk2.0-dev (if you don’t have it already) and libvte-dev, and you’re a “./0”, a “make” and a “sudo checkinstall -D” (to get that .deb file as well) away from a really cool term.

    Doesn’t replace urxvt for me, though! I have tabbed urxvt’s by default (Fluxbox rules hehe – I know you’re more of an Openbox guy), pseudo-transparency and acceptable fonts with it, anyway. It’s lighter and also seems faster, so urxvt is still the champ!

    I used to run Terminal a lot, but I kind of abandoned it when I moved to Openbox. And since I mentally associate it with Xubuntu, I have a tendency to skip things that are XFCE-based.

    Looks like there are quite a few more dependencies for xfce4-terminal than Sakura, though.
