Eterm

Eterm is a vt102 terminal emulator intended as a replacement for xterm. It is designed with a Freedom of Choice philosophy, leaving as much power, flexibility, and freedom as possible in the hands of the user. It is designed to look good and work well, but takes a feature-rich approach rather than one of minimalism. Current features include color support, background images (all Imlib-supported formats), theme support, and pseudo-transparency.

            Re: Eterm compiled ok, but no pixmap loaded

            Run Eterm with the debug option and check the log. Chances are its failing to to load the jpgs.

            If so this could be down to imlib2 and/or libast not building correctly. Or Imlib2 is missing the loaders. If you installed Imlib2 with rpm then you need the seperate Imlib2-loaders rpm.

            If you built from src check the Imlib2 and libast configure scripts to make sure they found the jpeg librarys.

            good luck.

            Eterm compiled ok, but no pixmap loaded
            Ok, I managed to compile it correctly. I start Enlightenment (0.16.5), and then open Eterm: no background image is displayed. Even forcing in the pixmap menu a scaled or tiled image, the background is black. I checked under usr/local/share/Eterm/pix but everything (config. file, images...) seems ok.
            Configure do not report strange messages (initially Imlib2 was missing, but now I've built it and configure does not complain any more).
            I'm looking on the net, but I can't find anyone who is reporting the same problem... what could be wrong?

            Problem compiling
            Ok, some brief history: This is being installed on an
            OpenBSD-3.0-current system. After installing the Imlib
            and libast libraries I had to move them from
            /usr/local/lib to /usr/lib (even after re-running ldconfig
            specifying directories) to get them to work. Strange.

            Now I can successfully run configure, however after
            running make it stops with this:

            creating libEterm.la
            (cd .libs && rm -f libEterm.la && ln -s ../libEterm.la
            libEterm.la)
            /bin/sh ../libtool --mode=link gcc -g -O2 -L/usr/local/lib
            -L/usr/X11R6/lib -o Eterm -rpath

            -R/usr/local/lib:/usr/local/lib/Eterm
            main.c:31: Undefined symbol `_eterm_bootstrap'
            referenced from text segment
            collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
            *** Error code 1

            Stop in /root/eterm/Eterm-0.9.1/src (line 271 of

            Any ideas??
            Thanks

            Run ldconfig, remove config.cache, and try again.

            Can't compile correctly
            After initially trying to compile Eterm I recevied numerous messages about missing libraries. I installed all of the missing enlightenment libs including Imlib2. Eterm compiles but still complains that Imlib2 is missing. Is there a trick to get Imlib2 working with Eterm ? The config message from Eterm is:

            configure: warning: *** Pixmap support has been disabled because Imlib2 was not found ***
            configure: warning: *** or could not be linked. Eterm should still work
            configure: warning: *** not be very happy. Check config.log for more detailed ***
            configure: warning: *** information on why my attempt to link with Imlib2 failed. ***
