st is a simple terminal implementation for X by suckless. It is intended to serve as a lightweight replacement xterm and urxvt. It currently supports 256 colors, most VT10X escape sequences, UTF8, X11 copy/paste, antialiased fonts (using fontconfig), fallback fonts, resize, shortcuts via config.h, and line drawing.

Installation

Download the stAUR or st-gitAUR package from the AUR. Then, as a non-root user, run:

$ makepkg -i

while in the directory of the saved PKGBUILD. All the files will be retrieved, and the package will be built and installed.

Configuration

st is configured through its config.h file. A sample config.def.h file is included with the source.

Consider maintaining your own PKGBUILD with sources and md5sums for your own configuration file.

Weird glitches/Visual bugs

Vim: Background colour of the text in Vim will not fill in anything that wasn't a character.

Solution: set TERM variable to screen-256color in your config.h file.
