Summarizing the distro offerings: Fedoras/SuSE offer mtr/-gtk (X),
Debians offer mtr (X)/-tiny, FreeBSD offers mtr (X)/-nox11, and
NetBSD offers mtr only without X.
So mtr is ambiguous as it may mean with/without X.
Alternatives mtr-tiny/nox11 and mtr-gtk have the advantages of being
unambiguous and already in use elsewhere, unless there are reasons
to prefer to follow Fedora for consistency in naming?

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
