st is a simple terminal emulator for X which sucks less. Though it works find
in Wayland as well (with XWayland mind you :-) ).
Main differences with normal branch:
- patched to have scrollback with basic mousewheel function (Shift+Mousewheel)
- patched to support old schoool clipboard interaction - in Wayland this does not work well, yet
- fonts now scale to match Xorg screen DPI
- Personalisation of
In order to build st you need the Xlib header files.
Edit config.mk to match your local setup (st is installed into the /usr/local namespace by default).
Afterwards enter the following command to build and install st (if necessary as root):
make clean install
Additionally I have created a PKGBUILD under
archlinux/ for building and
installing on ArchLinux.
If you did not install st with make clean install, you must compile the st terminfo entry with the following command:
tic -sx st.info
See the man page for additional details.
