A Crux port for Sakura

Sakura is still my favorite terminal emulator — it’s clean and logical, it follows your GTK theme and it handles tabs in the same way Firefox or PCManFM or others do.

I hadn’t set up a port in Crux — I have been using rxvt-unicode for the past few months — but I got a wild surge and decided to make one for it.

This follows, basically, the instructions for Sakura that are bundled with the source code.

# Description:  A terminal emulator based on GTK and VTE.
# URL:          http://pleyades.net/david/sakura.php
# Maintainer:
# Packager:
# Depends on:   gtk vte cmake


build() {
        cd $name-$version
        cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr .
        make DESTDIR=$PKG PREFIX=/usr install 
        rm -rf $PKG/usr/share/locale

Note that VTE is not part of core/contrib/opt/xorg; you’ll have to add the Gnome or XFCE repository to get that (or copy it into a local repo, like I do 😉 ). Enjoy!

  1. passing fancy

    You might want to give Terminator a try — you can have tabs, and also split each tab horizontally and/or vertically. I just stumbled across it, and as a long-time screen user was sold in sixty seconds of actual use.

    BTW, thanks for a fun and insightful blog!
