Geany uses the Virtual terminal emulator widget for GTK+ 2.0 (libvte9), in particular the libvte.so library.

Since Ubuntu 14.04 LTS uses the Terminal emulator widget for GTK+ 3.0 (libvte-2.90-9), I am wondering if I can install libvte9 alongside libvte-2.90-9


Yes, GTK2 and GTK3 can co-exist. Even on 16.04, I can use older gtk-2 apps.

Geany even works on 16.04 Xenial.
