Apps :: yeahconsole requires xterm or urxvt

I just started playing with yeahconsole (, which provides a quake-like terminal that hides and reappears with a key toggle...kinda groovy, particularly when using a tiling window manager.

Unfortunately it doesn't work with aterm since the terminal must be embeddable (xterm and urxvt are the only ones it currently supports).

So I was wondering if anyone has already created a xterm or (preferably) urxvt (aka rxvt-unicode) uci/unc extension that I overlooked when searching the repository?
If not, I guess I'll do it myself =o)

After that (and after icewm/lighttpd updates and htop), yeahconsole will hopefully be available in myDSL.

That app sounds like a cool idea to try out

I think DSL 1.x and older used rxvt, if you just want to test out this first.

I'm not sure it would be worth the trouble of digging out an old disk. I assume that rxvt is not capable of being embedded. Aterm is based on rxvt and is not...would they actually *remove* a feature like that?

In any case, if urxvt doesn't exist in myDSL I suspect it's time it did =o)

I have a feeling I might lose interest in yeahconsole pretty quickly, though. It's only been a day and already I'm wondering if it has any real benefit for me apart from one-key toggle and looking cool. And so far I still prefer aterm over urxvt. I think I'll have to look into its cpu/ram usage.

It seems that yeahconsole also requires XFree86, or at least that's the impression I'm getting. It starts with no trouble and no errors, but does not display =op

I think I'm going to pass on this, at least until I have the desire to install XFree

Screwing around with IceWM now. I forgot how much of a pain it was to build for DSL =o)
