My question is using only Ubuntu and/or open source components, how is full terminal emulation with keyboard mapping, logging, and printing achieved in Ubuntu without purchasing a product? By using the term terminal emulation, I am referring to having keys that are mapped to functions, and behave in a couple of but not limited to two standard cases, a VT100 or standard Unix/Linux terminal.
I have very good terminal emulation in Ubuntu, because I went out and purchased VanDyke's SecureCrt for Linux. My customers use the Windows version of VanDyke's SecureCrt, and I also need it on Linux.
However, I have to believe there is another to do keyboard remapping and obtain some, if not all, other things an emulator provides without purchasing a product.
If so, where does an end-user turn to achieve terminal emulation?
