Replacement suggestions for konsole, kate, kcalc
I do NOT run KDE, GNOME, or any DE. I am quite fond of my FVWM2. I do
use konsole, kate and kcalc. Sometimes I startup konqueror to check
compatability, or to quickly load a local HTML help file.
My problem is this. These programs spawn a slew of kdeinit processes.
I have no idea what these are actually doing, but if I kill them they
take the original program out with themselves. Also, every now and then
I get DCOP errors that take more time than I like to track down and
I really like the tabs on konsole MUCH better than opening a new xterm
window. Is there anything else out there that can do tabs that is not
tied to a huge DE?
I use kate for much the same reasons. I can have a lot of files open at
the same time for editing, comparing, cutting and pasting, etc. without
using up a lot of screen real estate.
As for kcalc, I don't use it nearly as much. It does what I need it to
do, with a minimum of fuss. More than a single memory might be nice,
Konqueror is rarley used, and I don't think that I have had any problems
with it and DCOP (as kate and konsole have both done to me). I guess it
stays, so I have another browser to check compatibility with (in adition
to mozilla, firefox and opera). It is also, by far, the most convenient
to pop up from a command line to view HTML docs.
So, does anyone have any replacement suggestions?
