Isn't Terminal from Xfce?  I thought KDE had konsole as its enhanced terminal 
program, and GNOME has GNOME Terminal.  You might find konsole more suitable 
than Terminal for KDE?

My memory is from KDE 3.5.8 (?) from Linux Slackware; I found it much more 
difficult to get around in KDE 4.2.4, hardly ever use it.

I remember when I tried to run Terminal from KDE 3.5.8, the computer 
immediately froze, requiring Power Off/Power On reboot, but Terminal ran in 

I am now in Terminal running in Xfce 4.6.1.

xterm has a long man page, so I figure there must be ways of enhancing it, but 
an awful long learning curve.
