Recent years there have been a few so-called 'terminal image viewers' 
SlackBuilds uploaded but in these descriptions people are lying through 
their teeth: when I tried these on pure (non-X) terminals (/dev/tty*) 
they don't work at all.  They were made for X terminals (xterms) or 
maybe even newer similar stuff many don't use yet like Wayland.  I ask 
that the descriptions be updated and if they're in system or graphics 
categories they be moved to desktop category.
        What is the world coming to when people SlackBuilding believe 
that 'terminal' automatically means 'xterm' for an OS that doesn't even 
boot to X, just boots to the console terminal (/dev/tty1) non-X default?!
