I'm an Austrian writer living in Montpezat (South France), and I just decided to
switch from KDE to XFCE. I'm a die-hard Slackware user since 2001.
Since a terminal emulator is the app I use the most, I downloaded, compiled and
installed Terminal from os-cillation.de, as well as its dependencies (dbus, vte
The app seems to run fine, but there's one thing that annoys me. The PS1
variable isn't read correctly. I have a colored shell prompt, defined as
follows in a personalized .bashrc:
PS1="$VERT[$BLANC\u$NC@$BLANC\h$NC:$BLANC\w$VERT] \$ $NC"
It seems that Terminal has troubles displaying the colors, and I'd say
especially the NC variable above is giving it a hard time. BTW, colors are the
only thing displayed incorrectly. If I leave them out, my prompt is OK.
Anyone has a suggestion here?
