I'm running 11.4-RELEASE, and when I install the xfce4-terminal pkg and try
to run, it crashes with a missing symbol in the vte library.
(xfce4-terminal:58355): VTE-WARNING **: 16:19:51.317: (../src/vtepty.cc:813):void vte_pty_spawn_with_fds_async(VtePty *, const char *, const char *const *, const char *const *, const int *, int, const int *, int, GSpawnFlags, GSpawnChildSetupFunc, gpointer, GDestroyNotify, int, GCancellable *, GAsyncReadyCallback, gpointer): runtime check failed: ((spawn_flags & forbidden_spawn_flags()) == 0)
/usr/local/lib/libvte-2.91.so.0: Undefined symbol "fribidi_get_bracket_types"
However, if I
pkg install bison
then run xfce4-terminal, the colors show up correctly.
Blue is really difficult to see on a black background, but blue is definitely
blue and bright blue is easy to see.
This is also xfce4-terminal 0.8.9.2
Don't know if this helps or not.
