somehow I'm not getting italic texts displayed in the xfce4-terminal.
When I do
|$ echo -e "\e[3mitalic\e[0m" |
it prints regular text. In xterm it works properly. It seems odd that the "simpler" terminal emulator can do more than the "more advanced" one.
Under terminal preferences --> Appearance, there is a check-box "Allow bold text". Only when it's checked I'm getting bold text.
Unfortunately, there is no box to allow italic text. Is this normal?
I can select a font under Appearance with italic style. But then the text is always shown in italic.
So it seems like italic text should work.
