@Det: in the vanilla package, font glyphs are spaced out by an extra 10%, it's not noticeable at all font point sizes (it depends on the font) the layoutgaps patch is more of a feature addition than a bugfix (and it was rejected upstream) - in tiling wms you can choose to ignore window size hints, so there's an extra bit of space at the bottom and rxvt usually doesn't draw it, so you still see the background or the window below I know it's named badly but at the time I couldn't think of something better and someone requested this package on irc :P.

So what does this actually change in the layouts' and fonts' widths? Also the naming could've been put a little more thought on.

Imho this patch should be part of upstream rxvt-unicode, or at least extra/rxvt-unicode

The only new patch here is the layoutgaps.patch. The rest is from the community/rxvt-unicode-256color packet. And that patch doesnt get rid of that empty space when you maximize your window. You can get that by ignoring layout hints in your window manager. And thats what this patch is good for: When you ignore these layout hints, the urxvt from the community packet will give you "dead pixels" in the regions where your window got "stretched". This patch should get rid of them. At least this works perfectly for me. :)

@karol_007: i get wide letter spacings with a number of fonts when i use xft, for instance with ttf-envy-code-r. I get gaps around the terminal if i don't use a fontsize that multiplies to the available screen size (12px is the only size that doesn't produce gaps for me). Both issues persist with these patches, so i don't know what the deal is either.

I don't really get what the layoutgaps.patch meant to accomplish, but could someone tell me what that piece of code does? I'm just a newb, but those two lines don't make much sense. I see neither empty space around maximized windows nor wide letter spacing w/ my beloved terminus.

The patches are not working for me either.

How is this supposed to work? Both patches don't seem to do much on my system? I reckon the font-width-patch is supposed to prevent large letter spacings, and the layoutgaps to prevent empty space around maximized windows, right?
