While the original Termite maintainers recommend Alacritty now and stopped development, there are still reasons to use Termite—for example if your box does not have OpenGL or Rust does not work for your architecture.

This fork of Termite is actively maintained: it is kept updated with the latest VTE versions, fixes and new features get merged, and whenever enough changes are gathered in the main branch new releases are produced as well :)

Thank you for still maintaining this!

@dlesnoff: You will need to rebuild Termite after the recent ICU update, and it will work fine with the latest version. Please let me know if a package rebuild does not fix your issue =)

termite requires older versions of icu libraries to launch. libicudata.so.71 libicuuc.so.71

If ctrl-shift-t (open new terminal in same dir) broke for anyone else you need to update the init of that in your rc file. The new one is here https://github.com/aperezdc/termite#id5

tldr; run this command: gpg --recv-keys 91C559DBE4C9123B

@joilnen, This error happens when your computer doesn't have public keys that are needed to verify integrity of sources. It is a generic error it may happen with any package.

termite: error while loading shared libraries: libicuuc.so.69: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Edit. To anyone experiencing this issue, It's because the icu package upgraded recently from v69 -> v70. Just clean build and you should be working again.

Should this be communicated to the users of this package?

https://github.com/thestinger/termite#termite-is-obsoleted-by-alacritty

From the author:

You should use Alacritty instead of Termite. It has a keyboard-based selection mode inspired by Termite and Alacritty 0.8 adds a generic regex hints mode comparable to Termite's URL hints mode. The user interface is very much in the same spirit as Termite including a very minimal user interface delegating handling tabs and splits to a window manager like i3. Alacritty is dramatically faster than VTE along with being significantly more robust and secure. It's written in a modern, safe programming language (Rust) and uses OpenGL for efficient rendering.

If you've packaged Termite in a repository, we would highly appreciate if you could communicate our recommendation to end users as part of phasing out and retiring the package. Alacritty is the only proper replacement for Termite and it took until the 0.8 release currently available as a release candidate for us to be able to wholeheartedly recommend it.
