I recently started using xterm Terminal emulator as my primary terminal. I found it to be very clean and less memory intensive. Below are some good resources that you may find useful . This is by far the best emulator compared to the Desktop Env versions.

copy&paste fix

Add the following line to the ~/.Xresources file:

XTerm*VT100.translations: #override : select-end(PRIMARY, CLIPBOARD, CUT_BUFFER0)
You can test it with an xterm:
xterm -xrm ‘XTerm*VT100.translations: #override : select-end(PRIMARY, CLIPBOARD, CUT_BUFFER0)’

change background color

Reset current settings and reload Xresource
xrdb ~/.Xresources
