rxvt-unicode

Yeah, there could be some need for a urxvt.
Lightweight fast unicode friendly terminal which is highly configurable.

you can install it from slackbuilds.org
there's rxvt-unicode and it optional dep libAfterimage

but I agree that a package in the repo could be most useful, as I like to use it for my minimal setups, besides it supports 256 colors! :geek:

Any advantages over e.g. Sakura?

it supports 256 colors whereas other terminals only support 16 colors
it can be ran as a daemon(server of terminals), and any instance of a terminal is treated as a client so if you have a lot of terminals open you use less resources :ugeek:
it has antialiased font and transparency support indenpendent of WM/DE
it can be extenden with perl scripst, but I have never done that because I don't know perl :P

besides the color support and the light footprint that's it, because sakura has utf-8 support as well.
and urxvt has to be edited via the .Xresources/.Xdefaults file and that could be a turn off to some people, but it's a great lightweight terminal :P

as a side note it appears that it is the terminal of choice of people who use minimal(istic) environments :ugeek:

I have added it to the repos, along with libAfterImage. But to be honest, I don't see what the fuss is all about.
