Topic: Installing Inproved Terminal

xterm is very basic and has no cut and paste facility.
I therefore decided to install an alternative with those features.
I finally decided on ROXterm.

Having downloaded and opened the compressed file, I tried to run roxterm.
It reports error while loading shared library libicule.so.51.

Trying to find this has aged me.
Any suggestions?

Re: Installing Inproved Terminal

Package icu4c provides libicule.so.

ls /var/log/packages/ | grep icu4c
icu4c-56.1-i586-2

Roxterm package version from slackbuilds.org is out of date (version 2.9.7) so probably it requires icu4c-51
you need to build roxterm with the source package from https://sourceforge.net/projects/roxterm/ (latest version 3.3.2)
assumed that this version requires icu4c-56 which is installed on Absolute 14.2

Thank you for that.

You can probably script-create slackware packages for these. I was too lazy
and just mass-compiled them using a set of ruby scripts.

Thankfully absolute linux comes with very recent gtk/glib so I did not really
have to fiddle with that at all. On default slackware, I'd first have to compile
gtk glib pango atk cairo etc...

Awesome distributions: slackware-family, GoboLinux, VoidLinux and in general all systemd-free variants
