LXTerminal 0.2.0 released.

LXDE own implementation of terminal emulator that is based on libvte library, got no releases for very long time. Now its time has came and it got a new featured release. We all thank to the new developer Jonathan (also known as FinboySlick) for those updates.

  1. I know this blog post isn’t about LXQT-Panel, but I want to thank y’all about it.

    I just now noticed that the volume applet is so much better then LXDE’s now. The addition of the ability to change which sink to make default is needed for me, thus I had been using pasystray, and now I don’t have to use it :). It is so awesome. Even more love for LXQT now :). It is already my favorite, and just keeps getting better. 🙂

  2. Stephen Bell, thanks for a comment.
    Don’t worry about LXDE, LXPanel in version 1.0 will have not only the feature mentioned by you, but much more, it is in active development again. 🙂

  3. Is it possible to add a login shell option like Gnome’s terminal emulator does? I’m having a difficult time trying to get the login shell feature to persist. I don’t mind editing my application shortcut (btw I have to do this manually.. trying to do it from the start menu does nothing at the moment.. with Lubuntu 14.04) but it only works for the FIRST tab I have open. As soon as I open a new tab, this feature seems to go away.

    I would consider this to be an important improvement to LXTerminal as login shell feature is needed to use RVM and that is a core piece of software used by ruby programmers.
