FingerTerm Nokia N9/N950 MeeGo Harmattan

An alternative terminal emulator for Harmattan (Nokia N9/N950) with a custom virtual keyboard. Started as an experiment because I felt the constant resizing happening with the normal virtual keyboard was annoying, especially with screen and irssi running on a remote machine. I think it might be useable enough for a public release.


  • It's beta. Features are missing and there are bugs.
  • Binary only release for now. Haven't decided yet whether it will be paid/free/open when it's ready. The version released on this website may be freely distributed, but please link to this page if possible.
  • The keyboard layout is what it is. Possibly configurable in later versions.
  • Configuration files are at ~/.config/FingerTerm/
    • settings.ini has some options not available through the UI (hopefully self-explanatory enough)
    • it's possible to add used-defined commands to menu.xml

Download version 0.9.1~beta

  • various terminal control sequence related bugfixes
  • basic pan gesture support (pan left/right to change channels in irssi)
  • some ui tweaks


Download version 0.9.0~beta

  • The first public release
