For those of you running antiX-sid (or testing), you may have noticed roxterm does not open as it did before. This is because gtk3.20 breaks it and the roxterm dev has announced that roxterm is dead.

So users will have to:

- use roxterm as it is
- use an alternative (rxvt-unicode is installed on antiX)

Also, IceWM and jwm themes appear to be broken as well.

Finally, you might need to re-write your .conkyrc

Do we need gtk3.20?

roxterm-gtk2 brings in libgtk-3 (go figure)

BTW - Running roxterm-gtk3 in a tiler (hlwm) is working without issue

What works for me in most cases is editing /usr/share/roxterm.desktop -> Exec=roxterm --geometry=760x460
But it is being called by so many programms that it is a PITA to fix it everywhere.

Hi Anti,
Hopefully roxterm will be resurrected by some other dev, as it is one powerful terminal.

What will be a good alternate terminal that has the power and flexibility of Roxterm? LXTerm or gnome-terminal?

ROXTerm is working fine if you open it with --geometry argument. It is by many criteria the best terminal emulator, imho. And you cannot replace it in antiX AFAIK, because Control Centre opens everything in roxterm. CC would need to be reprogrammed. It would need to be done anyway, either to call roxterm --geometry=760x460 -e COMMAND or any_other_terminal -e COMMAND.
Or I got a new idea to work with an alias in .bashrc !! :idea:
roxterm='roxterm --geometry=760x460'
Will test it and report.

Defining an alias as above didn't help with Control Centre apps, roxterm still opens in a tiny window. What helps for a workaround is editing the profile of roxterm to make it open in maximized window.

This still gives an error message,

but terminal apps like Ceni or sysv-rc-conf open ok.
