Seems like the Icon attribute in the .desktop file should be utilities-terminal, not terminal. See rxvt-unicode here

Hi, do you know if this version contains the patch for mouse wheel in second screen ?: This cause that scrolling with wheel in tmux is not working.

If not, could be possible to integrate it ?:

About my previous comment, I just removed all the downloaded aur files and aurget downloaded fresh stuff, and it just compiled fine. I guess I had old, messed up content in the build directory that was causing the issue.

I am upgrading an existing installation. This is not a fresh install. Any ideas?

I'm getting the "Unable to load base fontset, please specify a valid one using -fn, aborting." error, as well, but only on a newly-installed instance of Arch Linux: it still works fine on the installation I've had for years (on another machine). Both are (trying to) run rxvt-unicode-patched 9.22-9, which implies that it's not the package itself. Additionally, the rxvt-unicode-cvs-patched-wideglyphs package doesn't work on the machine that's failing on this package. I'll report back if/when I figure it out.

[Time passes.]

I didn't have pkg-config installed on the new machine, which meant all the feature checks during configure failed. Installing pkg-config resulted in a working rxvt-unicode-patched.

Solution: please add pkg-config as a build dep.

I maintain this package, but use myself (with xft fonts), which is quite similar.

I do not think it is related to the update / rebuild.

Can you try rxvt-unicode-cvs-patched-wideglyphs maybe?

kylebaked commented on 2017-06-12 22:13

After updating perl and rebuilding I'm getting the following when trying to launch:

"Unable to load base fontset, please specify a valid one using -fn, aborting."

It appears this is related to using an xft font. I can confirm that urxvt is able to use non-xft fonts and that xterm can use xft fonts fine. Is anyone else experiencing this or is this just something on my end?

Maybe it helps!?

It also contains the patch for reporting focus events and other niceties/fixes not released yet.

blueyed commented on 2017-05-06 04:35

there are several patches in here, and the crashing one was enable-wide-glyphs.patch, which is not included here. I am using another PKGBUILD based on the cvs version with it. I can publish it in case anyone is interested.
Not sure if it would help in your case - maybe it is related to wcwidth(3) even, in case tmux is using another method?!
Check the ISO14755 mode: press ctrl-shift and click on the glyphs. Then compare it between tmux and non-tmux.

Hi, this patch finally solves all my font problems (powerline + awesome) for powerlevel9k.
Hower tmux does seem to have problems.
It does not crash for me like it does for aflavio but take a look:


rxvt-unicode (urxvt) v9.22 - released: 2016-01-23
zsh 5.3.1 (x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu)
tmux 2.4
archlinux 4.10.13-1-ARCH

Maybe the problem is on tmux side, but vte terminals (e.g. termite) works with the same font.
