fbterm: A fast frame buffer-based terminal emulator for Linux1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0]

FbTerm is a fast terminal emulator for Linux that uses the frame buffer. It is mostly as fast as the Linux kernel's terminal when accelerated scrolling is enabled on the frame buffer device. It allows you to select fonts with fontconfig, auto-detect and convert text encoding with support for double width scripts like Chinese and Japanese etc, dynamically create and destroy up to 10 windows, record scroll-back history for every window, and copy/paste selected text between windows with mouse the when the gpm server is running.
