Sway Edition - General Conversation!

Drop down terminals are hard to achieve in tiling wm. I will give a try thought. Thank you for the idea!

Alacritty is now “supported” by EOS apps, meaning it works on x86_64, and @OdiousImp tested it on ARM (if I’m not mistaken). Is there still an issue with it?

No.

It doesn’t work on ARM…sorry @manuel! We made you go through all that! But it’s just easier to use a terminal that works in both so we wouldn’t need two config files.

OK. I thought you tested it in ARM but apparently you didn’t.
That means other options need to be used on ARM.

I don’t have a ARM device to test…

Could we not just use another terminal for both…That’s already supported…
I realize that would mean I made you add alacrity for no apparent reason…I rushed sorry, i naturally assumed it would work on ARM too…

Yeah, let’s use the terminals that work. Nothing against it. :wink:

It will most likely be termite (which is already supported right?). @Shjim termite works fine? I can copy and paste. Can you not?

@OdiousImp
I still no copy paste on mouse . No problem if use keyboard on termite.

No forget I use 32bit on Pi4 8Gb , 64bit has usb problem on 8Gb model

That’s weird :thinking:. Perhaps @Elloquin could see he had the same problem?
I can’t add transpency to termite currently…not sure if that’s a massive problem but just saying

Thank You! Your so helpful :pray: Thank You! If Termite doesn’t do copy and paste for @Pudge too then we will use xfce4-teminal. It might be something to with ARM…

i no see mouse support for copy+ paste … pls see if you find

i read on web about a patch. sad i no find yet

Termite starts in insert mode by default. Text may be selected using the mouse

Ctrl+Shift+c is used to copy selected text to the X clipboard, Ctrl+Shift+v to paste.

Install xclip and try again? That may be the problem

keyboard copy paste work fine … pointless use keyboard to copy and use mouse to paste !!! that insane 5555555 if that what you want me try?

Yeah…It says

Hmmm…Weird problem

yes… that work :+1: no mouse right click for box with options (copy +more ) it look only normal terminal keyboard shortcuts for copy+paste ( i use anyway :blush:) i ok with it ! sad new user might no like that no mouse support

Ohhhh…I understand the problem. Not many terminals have that option right…I see only XFCE4-Terminal have it.

I think we have xfce4 and temrite. Is that ok??
