Opening a terminal¶
A terminal can be opened up with Enter on an empty tag or Super+Enter at any time. You can also use the mouse by middle clicking on the status bar in the top right. The Super+Space application launcher can also launch any application in a terminal. Press Shift+left/right arrow key while using the launcher to switch ti terminal mode.
To highlight text, hold down the shift key and drag out the selection using your mouse. You can then press Ctrl+Shift+C to copy the selected text and Ctrl+Shift+V to paste it.
By default, all terminals open in a tmux session. This allows for features like tabs, split windows and detaching from the session. Tmux is very well documented so this manual won't go into detail about it.
The terminal emulator in use is st-instantos which a build of the suckless terminal. It is nothing special and deliberately kept barebones because most of the things you could add into a terminal emulator can be done much better and reliable using tmux.
