I am normally a Linux user and my default terminal is urxvt, but because of school (office documents and so) I bought a new laptop - a Macintosh. I think the system itself works nicely, though the bundled terminal is horrible.
I first tried iTerm2, but it doesnt seem to emulate xterm correctly - gnu screen and irssi in combination makes stuff go wrong like character encoding. I guess its because iTerm2 is not able to imitate xterm perfectly. So i went on to find another, sane, terminal that is actually bundled as an cocoa app, so i can get it working with fullscreen, accessibility from spotlight and so on. I was out of luck. Havent been able to find any xterm or urxvt cocoa app package at all.
I have installed urxvt via homebrew package manager, but its cocoa X11 app layer doesnt make fullscreen available, it seems. The window also seems to "weigh" more than e.g. iTerm2 when i moving around and so on. And also, its not available via spotlight because it gets installed to /usr/local/bin (symlinking to /Applications doesnt work) so i either have to open it via another terminal every time, or leave it in the dock. No thank you.
What are my options for getting a sane terminal on Mac OS X?
