The problem with this is that according to the man page, it has to be compiled with "frills".  In the rxvt-unicode PKGBUILD, the last configuration option is "--disable-frills".

I really wanted to change to this after reading your post, but I think this might actually be more work than simply using the rxvt-unicode-patched package from the AUR.  Thanks for the tip though jasonwryan.

Re: how to change urxvt fonts width?

It works fine with the standard rxvt in the repos:

┌─[Veles ~]
└─╼ pacman -Q rxvt-unicode
rxvt-unicode 9.18-1

For example, I use:

URxvt.letterSpace: -1

Re: how to change urxvt fonts width?

Interesting, I am going to try that.  Thanks.


Edit: It sure does work!  Thanks again jasonwryan.  The fonts look slightly different, but I don't really care too much.  I am not sure if I would really consider them better or worse... I'm not too picky about such things.
