- xterm: X terminal emulator
xterm is a terminal emulator for the X Window System. It provides DEC VT102
and Tektronix 4014 compatible terminals for programs that cannot use the
window system directly. This version implements ISO/ANSI colors and most of
the control sequences used by DEC VT220 terminals.
This package provides four commands: xterm, which is the traditional
terminal emulator; uxterm, which is a wrapper around xterm that is
intelligent about locale settings (especially those which use the UTF-8
character encoding), but which requires the luit program from the xutils
package; koi8rxterm, a wrapper similar to uxterm for locales that use the
KOI8-R character set; and lxterm, a simple wrapper that chooses which of the
previous commands to execute based on the user's locale settings.
A complete list of control sequences supported by the X terminal emulator
is provided in /usr/share/
The xterm program uses bitmap images provided by the xbitmaps package.
Those interested in using koi8rxterm will likely want to install the
xfonts-cyrillic package as well.
