I have been using roxterm for a while now. I really like it, there are only 2 things urxvt does better:
- is lighter (no issue, since ram usage won't climb after first terminal)
- maintains shape of multiline prompt better when windows are resized. All vte based terminals seem to draw afterimages of my prompt if window is resized.

roxterm looks like a great choice. I don't know if it is a bspwm problem or a roxtern problem but when I launch roxterm through sxhkdrc five instances open. I changed the super + z binding from $Terminal to roxterm but made no other changes.

I sometimes get two. For me,this is because there short delay of varying length sometimes, and think falsely that forst keypress did not register. But your problem sounds something else...

I too would bd up for a roxterm being the default. It's a nice terminal and in my opinion urxvtd isn't exactly something you can just drop in. Eventually someone will run htop, not know what it is and kill it, or not launch it because they don't know what it does.
I cannot always be at a computer, thus replies may be delayed if they require being at one.

I also start to like lxterminal-gtk3 - for its dumb simplicity. ;D

Cool, I did not know there was gtk3 version. It would be lighter, and would have all required features. iage preview in ranger does not work, but that is minor issue.

However, I have stopping issue with it: It exits immediately if shell it runs is zsh or fish. It works with bash, and I can run zsh just fine after terminal is started, but if I run just (my default shell is zsh)
Code: [Select]
lxterminalor
Code: [Select]
lxterminal -e zshterminal closes so fast it is hard to see that it even started.

If I can solve this, then lxterminal-gtk3 is a serious contender.

And it is not about my zshrc, because I tried renaming the whole thing and problem persists.

lxterminal -l -e zshworks. Login shell is bash for some reason.

lxterminal-gtk3 seems to be part of the project of porting LXDE to gtk3. No wonder that it seems not ready yet.
