(show the user a finger, he takes the hand...)
Selectable color schemes would be nice if it is possible, like solarized dark and light (

Your terminal is better than the native one and it works with hack ( with the last font patch.
Thank you!

Excuse me and my big fingers. Configuration available.

Arrow keys and page up/down don't seem to make keyboard visible as the others do.

Don't switch to configuration on first Jolla.

When I start mc in the ru_RU.utf8 locale the panels (all pseudgraphics) look completely distorted and all input characters are typed at an offset. Everything looks normal when I enter throgh ssh from a destop linux box. There is a problem with UTF8 or some aliases in the system (or the native terminals)? Maybe a charset selection setting like putty is worth to add. The jolla's terminal also has this problem.

Great makeover! On the Xperia X the text is small even with a font size of 20. Is it possible to increase this?

ROZZ's picture

Can you change font size in config file and tell what size do you prefer? I will change upper bound then

minitreintje's picture

Will try that and let you know :)

EDIT: you already edit it, 35 is perfect!

Very good job! I like it very much!

Good idea to give fingerterm a Sailfish UI makeover, but based on the screenshots I just have to ask - it supports landscape orientation, right??

ROZZ's picture

It supports landscape, but I decided to cut orientation lock because it was unnecessary

No vibration when typing?

ROZZ's picture

It was broken when I edited keyboard, but I will bring it back with update

Good job, nice app, five stars. Can i use it for anything else the native terminal does or there are any restrictions?

ROZZ's picture

Thank you!
It can do pretty much everything native terminal can
