Working terminal emulator
#1
Is there any terminal emulator that I can use with GLES 3.0 in PBP currently?

I tried to use Alacritty and the error log was saying that I need 3.3 or higher support.

for alacritty you need to use cyclopsian's gles3 (or gles2) port patch. i've been playing with the gles3 port with mesa-git and will add to pbp-tools. thanks for the reminder.

Could you let me know where can I find the patch?

Thank you, I really appreciate it.

However, I am new to Manjaro and even Linux so, not sure how to the port patch from there.

Should I build Alacritty from the cyclopsian source or need only a part of it?

the pbp-tools script grabs the commit and patches 0.4.2, but you can do that a bunch of different ways.

fwiw this is working for me on pinebook pro, manjaro arm, with no patches. I had to install the latest mesa driver, and run it with an extra environment variable but it works:

relevant commands:

pamac install alacritty mesa-git
PAN_MESA_DEBUG=gl3 alacritty
