Hi, I am going to write GTK+ application, that will use something like console window as one of possible ways to interact with users. I looked on libvte, but it's require to have another application to run, but I need something looked as console widget to integrate it to my application. Can anybody help me?

If I undestood you concern about libvte, that is, if you think you need to run an application inside the vte, I can assure you that is not true. You can have a vte that does not run anything, and use the vte_terminal_feed() to add text to the terminal. It should similarly be possible to capture the user input in the vte, but I cannot say much about that because in my application I use vte's as output-only widgets.

I don't think, that such usage of VteTerminal is a really good idea.
I decide to write custom widget, that will use GtkTextView to catch user input and show output, but I'm in confusion about what GTK-widget should be parent for my custom widget. Can anybody suggest newbie?
