@mrdotx: Thanks for this. I must have misread the PKGBUILD. Upon further inspection, urxvt-perls is indeed in the conflicts section.

@ntwk: It is as @Andrei_Korshikov suggested. From my perspective, the urxvt-perls package is not correct and should be fixed. Nevertheless, urxvt-perls has always been in 'conflicts', only urxvt-keyboard-select is in 'provides'.

@ntwk That's the problem with urxvt-perls package.clipboard and url-select both deprecated long ago (in times of versions 9.20 and 9.21), their functionality is supported by urxvt itself (see first paragraphs in both sections for explanation, and keyboard-select is the only extension that should be provided. So, I agree with @mrdotx current decision. Edit: To be clear: urxvt-perls should be fixed, not this one.

Currently, this package states that it provides the urxvt-perls package. The urxvt-perls package installs the following scripts:


However, only the keyboard-select script is installed with the rxvt-unicode-truecolor-wide-glyphs package. The clipboard and url-select scripts are missing.

Either all these scripts should be added to rxvt-unicode-truecolor-wide-glyphs or urxvt-perls should be moved from the "provides" section to the "conflicts" section.

@Andrei_Korshikov: I think you are right. If someone installs this version of URxvt, he will surely want to use special fonts. That's why I'm going to mark this as a 'feature' for now ;) If I have more time and I'm bored, I'll take a closer look at it. Thanks for your tests...

Here are my results on segfaults with no configured font. If I explicitly set -*-fixed-*-13-* as my main font - everything is ok, both terminal-analysis scripts work fine, no crashes.

If (as I said earlier) I remove all font settings, then effectively the same -*-fixed-*-13-* is used, I can press Control+Shift and click somewhere, and it says "fixed" as font name in the blue ISO 14755 rectangle. works, crashes right after starting.

Here is coredumpctl debug output:

The most interesting part is font. It is 0x0 3 times of 10, 0x408 one time, nice numbers (0xc80000000b and 0x1b00000031) two times, and a big number (like 0x137094d04e390) four others times.

I did not use C++ and gdb for ages, so I'm not 100% sure, but I take it that font is a pointer, and it should not be zero.

I'm surely not asking to fix, with configured fonts there are no crashes.

@mrdotx By the way, thank you for sharing your dotfiles. I've read them and learned something new:)

@mrdotx Thank you! I'll dig)

Update: deleted comments about fonts, my fault - mistake in config.

@Andrei_Korshikov: For language/font support in general, the built-in fonts are more of a fallback to display something, not to display everything. For this reason, it is recommended to configure the fonts that are needed in the Xresources files. This means, if you want Hindi, Punjabi, Emojis, Nerdfonts or whatever to be displayed, you have to configure fonts that are support these character sets. Furthermore, the rectangles are displayed as an indicator that the characters cannot be found in the configured or built-in fonts.

I've tried to reproduce your crashes, but without success. It didn't matter if I did it with/-out font configuration, with/-out installed fonts and/or with/-out patches. However, I used my scripts/files for testing:

If you want you can test them too. They should produce enough colors and font properties to stress the terminal emulator.

I can't reproduce your last point either. For testing I used the nvim.desktop and gimp.desktop files (these simply have the most languages on my system and I don't have plasma installed). Hebrew is always displayed, with or without patches and cleared font cache.
