Pytermix is a program I wrote for my mother, who was interested in trying Linux, but was unable to play her BBS games without a Hyperterminal equivalent.
You can grab a copy of the latest version, 0.6.5, at pytermix-0.6.5.tar.gz. Requirements are:
- libvte4 (note that vanilla libvte has a bug that breaks color handling, but it's easy to patch if you're adventurous)
- the FreeMono font
I know the program's a little hacky, but I'm not really familiar with better techniques for working with glade.
