Description

...so that it is possible to get to the commandline without ssh from second
machine. Initial p0 firmware got it mostly right: it ran rxvt by default, so it
was possible to click Active Tasks|rxvt and get to the command line.

The goal is to be able to everything without opening a terminal. People that
claim to want a terminal can ssh in or start it manually.

Of course everything should be doable without terminal; but that is not
currently the case.

It is possible to launch rxvt over ssh, but it is impossible to launch rxvt
without access to second machine, and that's a problem. Given that Other| menu
already exists, with "finger demo" (etc), having rxvt along these demos would be
useful.

(I'm not sure if mainmenu is the right component. Openmoko seems to have _two_
mainmenus currently. Having rxvt in one of them should be enough.... but it is
important that it can be started without second machine).

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

We now have openmoko-terminal (a "rebranded" version of gtkterm2) and there is
an icon for it.
