Work environment


Default installation of Arch does not contain any Desktop Environment and therefore forces users to choose one themselves. Most Arch boxes run some X11 Window Manager and/or Desktop Environment but precedents of doing everyday tasks in bare console are also present (proofs?).

  • dvtm — performs dwm-style window management in console || dvtm

Support applications

Login managers

Terminal emulators


Power users use terminal emulators quite often, so unsurprisingly lots of X11 terminal emulators exist. Most of them emulate Xterm that emulates VT102, which emulates typewriter, so you will have to read Wikipedia article and other sources to master these things. Some of listed emulators have "quake"-like sequences in names or refer to Quake terminals. If you hove not played Quake (really?) or did not pay enough attention to it's terminals – those have no border and are hidden from the desktop until a key is pressed.

  • Xterm — It is doubtful that you would need more functionality than present in the Xterm, but be ready to tune it a bit to get nice look and working copy-paste || xterm
  • aterm — An xterm replacement with transparency support || aterm || kdebase-konsole
  • yakuake — drop-down terminal emulator based on KDE Konsole technology || yakuake
  • LilyTerm — A light and easy to use libvte based X Terminal Emulator || lilyterm
  • rxvt — popular replacement for the xterm || rxvt
  • urxvt — A highly extendable unicode enabled rxvt-clone terminal emulator featuring tabbing, url launching, quake-style dropdown, pseudo-

transparency, and is extensible with perl || rxvt-unicode
  • mrxvt — tabbed X terminal emulator based on rxvt code || mrxvtAUR || etermAUR
  • Stjerm — is a GTK+-based drop-down terminal emulator. Stjerm sets itself apart from similar programs by providing a minimalistic interface combined with a small file size, lightweight memory usage and easy integration with composite window managers such as Compiz. || stjermAUR
  • terminator — terminal emulator supporting multiple resizable terminal panes || terminator
  • Tilda — A Linux terminal taking after the likeness of many classic terminals from first person shooter games, Quake, Doom and Half-Life || tilda
  • Termit — simple terminal emulator, extensible via Lua. Includes tabs, bookmarks, and the ability to switch encodings || termitAUR


Terminal Vidget, developed during early Gnome days, gave birth to many terminals with similar capabilities:

  • ROXTerm — A tabbed, VTE-based terminal emulator with a small footprint || roxterm
  • Sakura — A terminal emulator based on GTK+ and VTE || sakura
  • mt — written as nice light-er-weight replacement for sakura (the binary is one third the size), keeping most of the functionality, except settings are defined during compilation, and removes some stupid features || mt-gitAUR
  • lxterminal — VTE-based terminal emulator and c part of the LXDE DE. || lxterminal
  • evilvte (The name apparently is a reference to evilwm, although the two projects do not appear to be related).
  • gnome-terminalGNOME default (standalone) terminal with support for Unicode and pseudo-transparency || gnome-terminal
  • guake — drop-down terminal for Gnome Desktop Environment || guake-gitAUR
  • terminal — Xfce default terminal with support for a colorized prompt and a tabbed interface || terminal
