Starting this November 2019, goodies.xfce.org documentation is starting to migrate to https://docs.xfce.org/start. The goal is to remove deprecated projects and, eventually, de-comission the goodies.xfce.org URLs. Additional information will be posted on https://wiki.xfce.org/projects/goodies-decomm/start as the project proceeds.

Written by Benedikt Meurer, Terminal is a modern terminal emulator for the Unix/Linux desktop - primarly for the Xfce desktop environment. It was developed by os-cillation because they saw the need for a lightweight and easy to use terminal emulator in the Xfce desktop environment, that doesn’t require the user to install the GNOME platform, but still provides a worthy alternative to the GNOME terminal emulator. Terminal requires, among other software, the libexo librarie, which is available from our download page as well. Please read the installation guide on the official Terminal page.
