There's no hope fixing keyboard switching for stretch, right?
If so, I believe it'd be a good idea to reintroduce a GTK2 version until
upstream fixes this -- either you or me could do it. The lack of such a
basic functionality makes xfce4-terminal unfit for serious use -- many of us
have 10+ tabs per monitor -- with more on other workspaces. Being able to
switch conveniently is vital: that's why console has Alt-F1..F12, screen
has Ctrl-a 1, irssi has Alt-1, etc.
In theory, I could use mate-terminal which does this part right (on GTK3!)
but then, mate-terminal sucks so in the past I used xfce4-terminal on
Gnome 2. There's terminology that's crashy and also sucks. Etc...
. 6 VTs being too few to even comfortably bring X back up.
u-boot problems can be solved with the help of your old SCSI manuals, the
parts that deal with goat termination. You need a black-handled knife, and
an appropriate set of candles (number and color matters). Or was it a
silver-handled knife? Crap, need to look that up.
