The XIM X11R6 check was being attempted before XIM support
was enabled (or disabled) in configure.in. Thus the
check was never actually made and X11R6 XIM support was always off.
This caused the resulting Eterm build to have a bug whereby if
the XIM server (kinput2) exits, as it is want to do when
it crashes from time to time, then Eterm would segfault
on reciept of a focus event. By compiling with X11R6 XIM support
Eterm received an event when kinput2 exits and it is all good.
I am not sure if this should be on for all XIM support or not.

LibAST 0.5 is now required to build Eterm. Hope everyone updated. By
the way, this fixes that old font-starts-with-a-hyphen bug along with
some compiler warnings the resulted from a change in the way the
ASSERT() macro worked.
SVN revision: 6407
Updates to the termcap/terminfo stuff to make everything work on *BSD.
Thanks to Thomas Dickey <firstname.lastname@example.org> and Will Yardley
<email@example.com> for their assistance with this.
SVN revision: 6391
Patches from Paul Brannan <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Klaus Elsbernd
<email@example.com>, and Derrick Moser
<firstname.lastname@example.org> which appeared while I was away.
Fixes for mouse wheel reporting and reset handling (Paul), Solaris
portability (Klaus), and XIM (Derrick).
Getting ready to release 0.9.2 soonish.

I got tired of having to maintain half a gazillion menus.cfg files
considering that the vast majority of them are identical or have
large identical sections. Thus, I took the m4-based menus.cfg from
the chooser theme and hacked on it a bunch. I can now regenerate
the menu files for all Eterm themes from a single source file using
the gen-menus script in doc/.
I also removed the comments from the theme.cfg files of all themes
except "Eterm" itself.
SVN revision: 5263
Okay, first off, I finally found and fixed a typo with regard to the
utempter support on RedHat-based systems. I doubt it's ever worked
properly (sigh). Secondly, I added support for throwing Eterm's
termcap entry into the termcap DB on FreeBSD (and possibly other
*BSD-based) systems thanks to info from Kirby Kuehl
<email@example.com>. And finally, added in a patch from Paul
Brannan <firstname.lastname@example.org> to support some additional escape
sequences for vim.
SVN revision: 5044
Fixed the problem where the wrong font would end up in your menus and
buttonbars if you enable multibyte support but don't have a specific
encoding in use. I also corrected a large number of misplaced
newlines in error messages; I think that was some Perl-fu gone awry.
SVN revision: 4980
All the docs and themes should now be up-to-date. Unless a
showstopping bug turns up in the near future, this is pretty much it
for 0.9.1. Now we just need some testing to make sure there's
nothing horridly wrong.... So you all can test while we finish up
the web site and the backgrounds. :-)
SVN revision: 4919
Okay, first off, I removed 3 scaled backgrounds. See www.kainx.org or
my post to enlightenment-devel for details.
Second, I redid the default bindings for the mouse wheel. Basically,
the wheel alone will scroll by pages. Ctrl+wheel will scroll by pages
in groups of 5. Shift+wheel will scroll by a single line. If you
hold down the Alt key, the same combinations will work the same way,
but instead of scrolling within Eterm, they'll scroll the application
in the terminal (by sending PgUp/PgDn and up/down arrows). This works
in less, bash, and any other application which groks those keys.
I also added a --without-mousewheel option to configure that will turn
off the default scrollwheel bindings. Of course, you can always use
action bindings in the config file to bind/rebind these any way you
While I was at it, I found and fixed a bug in the handling of the
Alt and Meta keys.
I added a scroll() function to the script stuff which allows you to
bind keys/buttons to scroll up and down. While I was at it, I added
comments to script.c for each function you can use.
And finally, the config file parser was moved to libast.
SVN revision: 4806
Added a spec file for Linux-Mandrake which was contributed (ages ago)
by Joakim Bodin <email@example.com>. I don't plan on maintaining
this, so I hope he does. :-)
Also applied a menu change which I am hoping will fix an infinite
recursion bug in the menu system pointed out on SourceForge by
Jonathan S. Keim <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
SVN revision: 4108
Moved the HAVE_SAVED_UIDS define into a configure option so that the
FreeBSD folks will have an easier time with it.
Fixed "make distcheck" which broke at some point.
That X stuff in clean_exit() should only happen if we're debugging.
Nobody but me should have to deal with those random hangs. :-)
Added a patch for multibyte cursor support from Michael C. Wu
<email@example.com> and Sung-Hyun Nam <firstname.lastname@example.org>, along
with some other FreeBSD-related patches from Mr. Wu.
SVN revision: 4065
At the request of Snow-Man <email@example.com>, I added the build
date to the output of --version. While I was at it, I also added the
RCS ident strings.
I also applied a patch from Sung-Hyun Nam <firstname.lastname@example.org> that
fixes XIM-related seg faults during clean-up.
SVN revision: 3919
VA bought some licenses for Insure++, so I've been using it to audit
Eterm. These are just the initial results of the collaboration; there
will most likely be more. So far things are looking pretty good. I
just wish Insure++ had more helpful messages. I'd really love to be
able to track down those reads/writes involving freed pointers that
it claims to have found in Imlib2....
I also had to try and make the build work without MMX. I did so; I
just hope it still works *with* MMX.... =)
SVN revision: 3895
Since someone wanted it, if no name is given but an exec line (the -e
option) is given, the name defaults to the first word in the exec line
instead of "Eterm-<version>". For example, Eterm -e ssh foo would get
the title "ssh". NOTE: Most Eterm themes already specify a name, so
this will not work with those themes.
SVN revision: 3886
Fixed the error message bug I noticed. There's also a big5 fix from
Chung-Yen Chang <email@example.com>, and I got rid of some
tiny memory leaks in the X data, the first of which was noticed by
SVN revision: 3844
Several small changes, like freeing pixmaps which won't be needed
later, reducing the default Imlib2 cache size to 0 bytes (we don't
really use it well), and an image path bugfix spotted by Teodor
The big change, of course, is the disappearance of libmej and the new
dependency on libast, which is now distributed separately.
SVN revision: 3793
Okay, everything seems hunky-dorey now. If you have memory debugging
turned on, exiting Eterm will give a dump of the leftover allocated
memory including where it came from and how much there is. You'll
also get a listing of all the remaining Pixmap ID's and GC ID's along
with where they were created.
I also added some macros to the debugging stuff in libmej.h so that
if you pass the --without-debugging option to ./configure, it will
optimize out all the ASSERT and REQUIRE goop. This will make it
harder to trap bugs before they cause problems, so don't do it if you
want to help development, but if speed is critical to you, give it a
SVN revision: 3294
Massive reorganization/rewrite to libmej. It should now be 100%
independent of Eterm. There still may be some gremlins in the memory
debugging code, so don't use too high a number with --debug....
SVN revision: 3282
Okay, there are a few changes here. First off, I made multi-byte font
support the default now, as long as you have ISO 10646 fonts. In
order to do this, I made the default encoding type "Latin1" so as not
to interfere with 8-bit ISO 8859-1 characters. This means that if you
relied on the default multi-byte encoding method to be SJIS, you'll
need to update your theme files.
I also set it up so that Eterm will ignore SIGHUP, at least until I do
something with it (like reloading the theme or something).
I fixed the proportional font size algorithm. If there is more than
a 3-pixel variance between the minimum and maximum sizes for glyphs in
a proportional font, Eterm will set the size to 2 standard deviations
above the average width. This is so that they won't look so spread
out and ugly, but it still doesn't look perfect. Not much I can do on
that front...terminals must have fixed-width columns.
And then there's the biggie. I put in the ability to configure the
now-infamous font effects. I left a black drop shadow in as the
default, but you can now customize it via the --font-fx option or in
the config file using "font effects <stuff>" in the attributes
context. You can even use "fx" instead of "effects" for short.
So what goes in the <stuff> part? Well, you have several options.
To use a single-color outline, say "outline <color>". Likewise, a
single-color drop shadow is "shadow [corner] <color>"; "bottom_right"
is the default corner if you don't specify one. For a 3-D embossed
look, "emboss <dark_color> <light_color>". The opposite, a carved-
out look, can be had with "carved <dark_color> <light_color>". (Of
course, with those last two, the 3-D look will only work if you
choose the colors wisely.)
Those are all the shortcuts. The long way is to specify a series of
corner/color pairs, like "tl blue" for top-left blue, or
"bottom_right green". You can abbreviate using "tl," "tr," "bl," or
"br," or you can spell out "top_left," "top_right," "bottom_left," or
"bottom_right." If you omit a corner name, the first one defaults to
top-left, the second to top-right, and so on as listed above.

Added new shade/tint routines, including some done in MMX assembly, by
Willem Monsuwe <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Thanks Willem! These should prove
to be faster than the old stuff, probably by quite a bit.
SVN revision: 2595
After getting sick of hearing people whining about the obscure error
messages that resulted from trying to build without pixmap support, I
hacked it until it at least built without it. I also added warnings
to configure.in so that people would know if that happened.
It's still not very happy running that way, which is something I need
to fix. But hopefully it will stop the whining.
Yeah, right. =P
