A terminal emulator which allows tabs.
I could just use Screen, but mrxvt is so much easier to use. =)
- aka materm
See also: rxvt-unicode (rxvt), which is also definitely light.
I summon it up like this:
mrxvt -cr 2 +sb -ht -fn 9x15 -bg black -fg gray -sl 10000 -geometry 80x24+0+0 -font vga +vbf
-cr 2- green cursor
+actually REMOVES that item. Strange.
+sb- remove the scrollbar
-ht- remove the tab bar. Strange that this one is
+htlike the others would suggest.
+vbf- remove bolding, which looks hideous anyways.
I don't know what the relation to this materm is: http://www.nongnu.org/materm/materm.html

Note: If you use bash version 3.1 or later, then keep in mind that a few distributions set
PROMPT_COMMAND in a manner that destroys the current tab title. You should either unset it, or set it to something useful. The following code snippet sets the tab title to the current command, and sets
PROMPT_COMMAND to set your bash prompt to include a shortened version (3 path components) of the working directory in your shell prompt.
Make sure it is only read by interactive shells. E.g. in the beginning of
~/.bashrc do something like:
[[ $- != *i* ]] && return
NOTE: The above will only work starting from mrxvt-0.5.1 and up. On previous versions replace
If you also want the window title to reflect the current command, then in addition to one (or more) of the above, add the following line to your
