sterm - simple terminal
sterm is a simple virtual terminal emulator for X which sucks less.

In order to build sterm you need the Xlib header files.

Download, build and install latest K8Jam from

* On Mac OS X, install pkg-config by executing
* sudo port install pkg-config
* set environment variable
* PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/X11/lib/pkgconfig



to configure and


again to build.

Copy .sterm.rc to ~/.sterm.rc
Copy ./sterm to /usr/local/bin
Type "sterm" to run sterm in rxvt mode.
Type "sterm -T xterm" to run sterm in xterm mode.

sterm searches config files in this order:


Features that will not be added
  * transparency
  * ttf font support
  * scripting
  * japanese and other strange languages
  * unnecessary (for me) bloating

Based on Aurélien APTEL <aurelien dot aptel at gmail dot com> bt source code.
