Havoc is a minimal but modern terminal emulator for Wayland. It supports everything you would expect from a terminal emulator on a PC, including 24bit colours and TUI features that Fingerterm and, to a lower extent, Toeterm, cannot handle. Havoc being developed for PC originally, it is meant to be used in landscape with a hardware keyboard.

You can still use Havoc with no hardware keyboard, using qCommand, any other terminal, or .desktop files to print command outputs that do not render correctly in other terminals. To issue a command in Havoc from another application, use "havoc -l COMMAND", where "-l" is to hold in case the output does not keep a process running.

# Features
- 24bit colours
- Full support for ncurses features and other TUI
- Easy multi-touch text selection; ctrl+shift+c/ctrl+shift+v for copy/paste
- One finger scrolling; no more conflict between selecting and scrolling in terminals
- User configuration in ~/.config/havoc.cfg by default (font, font size, colours, opacity of the cover, etc.), see "havoc -h"
- Support for compose and dead keys if your hardware keyboard is set to use a xkb layout with those (additional package required)

# Disclaimer
I am not the developer of Havoc, I just packaged it for SFOS. Havoc is being actively developed by Murray Calavera (ii8) at https://github.com/ii8/havoc/. The SFOS port is at https://github.com/kabouik/havoc/.

Default scrollback should be fixed with version 20200616. It was working only with a havoc.cfg file before.
