vte291-ng – enhanced vte terminal widget

license: LGPLv2.1+

What is VTE?

VTE is a library (libvte) implementing a terminal emulator widget for GTK+, and a minimal sample application (vte) using that. Vte is mainly used in gnome-terminal, but can also be used to embed a console/terminal in games, editors, IDEs, etc.

What is VTE-NG?

VTE-NG is a patched version of VTE. It is required to run Termite terminal emulator. Termite is also available in my COPR.

Installation Instructions


This replaces the vte291 package, while being fully backward compatible. It "provides" vte291, so nothing should break unless some package needs a version of vte291 newer than the newest available version of vte-ng.

RHEL/CentOS 5 and 6 are not supported since they don't have Vala packages (contact me if I'm wrong).
