Re: rxvt-unicode

Hi dibble,

my apologies, I focused on anew package and forgot to call the
post_install message on post_upgrade. Here is a fixed .install file.

Sorry for inconvenience.

-neri
moreover I gave the worng filename to the compiler, fixed in script beneath
rxvt.install

# arg 1:  the new package version
post_install() {
  echo -n "compiling terminfo file... "
  /usr/bin/tic /usr/share/terminfo/r/rxvt-unicode
  echo "done."
  cat << 'EOM'
  --> urxvt is a 88 color terminal, to achieve that you have to set your $TERM
  -->          export TERM=rxvt-unicode
  --> Some ncurses application and editors like are capable of diplaying more
  --> than 8 dark + 8 light(bolded) colors. To honour rxvt's capabilities you
  --> have to mess with the respective applications' configuration then.
EOM
}

post_upgrade() {
  post_install $1
}

op=$1
shift

$op $*
# vim: ft=sh

Re: rxvt-unicode

Still playing around with this and found that the following seems to allow rxvt-unicode to work properly if placed in .Xdefaults:

urxvt*termName: rxvt-color

edit:  hmm... maybe not, will report back later...

Re: rxvt-unicode

would love to know when I can use pacman to grab a problem-free version of this.

Your discussion has made me want to try it.

I played with putting it to $TERM and it worked as expected, also the things
I do in mlterm still worked nicely ecept mutt, this becomes completely b/w
sad
So I tried your approch by exporting either mlterm(i have an mlterm
terminfo, which will part if the next version) or xterm-color to $TERM and
URxvt*termName: rxvt-unicode to .Xdefault. This worked closely to the
way I expected it to work. All my terms work now with nice colors - urxvt
with even 88 colors.

just one thing is important, if TERM!=rxvt-unicode, vim doesn't set &t_Co
automatically to 88 and sticks with 8 instead! You guess it, that sucks. But
on condition $COLORTERM=rxvt-xpm, which is exported by urxvt
automatically, you can redifine set t_Co=88 and every thing is fine. Watch
the "vim in terminal" thread for more details.

Re: rxvt-unicode

Question:
urxvt is supposed to have other than - /me vomits - rxvt scrollbars. They
are even compiled but I never got one of them (plain,next,xterm) displayed :shock:

All the different scrollbars worked for me through .Xdefaults:

urxvt*scrollBar:true
urxvt*scrollstyle:plain
urxvt*scrollBar_right:true

Just replace "plain" with the type you want. I like the plain because it's really minimal.

Re: rxvt-unicode

I think there's 2 man pages, too BTW - I'm not at my arch box, but I seem to recall .1 and .7 - so maybe it's in the other one...

Re: rxvt-unicode

Ok I've updated the one in community, it's mostly like the pkgbuild here with the exception of that menus section and some post_install echo is a bit different.

Neri will be taking over and it should appear in [extra] when he has time.


The suggestion box only accepts patches.

Re: rxvt-unicode

Note to self:
urxvt*scrollSytle != urxvt*scrollStyle
just to find out that it desn't work either.
but "scrollstyle" is case sensitive while Urxvt* isn't ... yuck

-neri
anyway thanks,  copy and paste did the trick

Re: rxvt-unicode

As I'm writing that, urxvt has been moved. Just wanted to say thanks to all
contributers and that I like this way of moving an application from
aur->extra. It improves packages, it makes all people learning a bit and
finally it's just fun. It's not like rushing in stuff but maturing down things.

I agree - now... I wonder if there's anything actually in place to remove the package from the AUR... heh

Re: rxvt-unicode

pretty much exactly like that. I think I can track it down to some ttf fonts.
At least it happens when I have ttf-ms-fonts installed and some of my own
fonts. The Bitstream and Luxi fonts coming with X doesn't create the crash.

It might be either a misencoding in the fonts or some trouble in urxvt calling
freetype maybe.

Re: rxvt-unicode

Hi,

show me yours I show you mine tongue
I hacked a stupid!(could someone please eliminate that second loop and
combine the functionality in the first one) script to check the 88 colors that
can be shown in urxvt.
http://www.justdreams.de/archlinux/down … rstest.vim
what does it looks like here?
vim88test8rt.th.jpg
...featuring this http://www.justdreams.de/archlinux/downloads/Xdefaults .Xdefaults
I figure the that the dark colors (1-8) can only be displayed normal. The
moment you force the bold, they are shown in the 9-16 range :shock:

I read somewhere in the manpage or elswhere that the colors >16 can be
manipulated by some printf '33];code;%s07' magic, yet I dunno the
code numbers. Anyone?
