The x11/rxvt-unicode port

rxvt-unicode-9.31p1 – clone of rxvt with Unicode and Xft support (cvsweb github mirror)


rxvt-unicode is a customizable terminal emulator forked from rxvt.
Features of rxvt-unicode include international language support through
Unicode, transparency, the ability to display multiple font types and
support for Perl extensions.

The standard package mostly follows upstream's default build options,
with only 256-colour support added.

Other flavours are available:

	everything - built with "--enable-everything" to enable all
	  features, including some heavier-weight ones

	small - built with only limited options (to reduce size
	  and dependencies)

| Running ${PKGSTEM} on OpenBSD

With ssh it is possible to receive errors like "Terminal unknown"
upon logging in. For example, starting ncurses applications like
tmux(1) fails with the message "open terminal failed: missing or
unsuitable terminal: rxvt-unicode-256color".

A convenient workaround for this problem is transferring the right
terminfo files to the remote host:

$ ssh remotemachine mkdir -p .terminfo/r
$ scp ${TRUEPREFIX}/share/terminfo/r/rxvt-unicode* remotemachine:.terminfo/r/

If this isn't possible or desirable, another workaround is overriding
the default terminal type name via the user's "~/.Xdefaults" file.
