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.
Download the AUR. Then, as a non-root user, run:AUR or AUR package from the
$ makepkg -i
while in the directory of the saved PKGBUILD. All the files will be retrieved, and the package will be built and installed.
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.
