Final Term is an interesting and promising terminal emulator with advanced interactive features like semantic text menus, smart command completion, GUI terminal controls, reflow support and more.
I contributed an initial Hungarian translation for the project just to soon find myself hacking on an ebuild, and on minor features. All in all, as of 2013-07-11, Final Term is now available in Gentoo’s Sunrise overlay. You can find usage instructions here.
- Philipp Emanuel Weidmann for creating Final Term and blogging about it
- GitHub user Richard-W for letting me know that I’m not the only one who would like to use Final Term on Gentoo
- Julian Ospald (hasufell) for reviewing my ebuilds, suggesting a modification to the build system, and finally merging the ebuild into Sunrise
