joconcepts commented on 2016-01-18 17:43

please change git to this:

It seems to be more uptodate.

The urxvt-tabbedex.install file shouldn't be added to the sources=() array.

Shibumi commented on 2014-03-03 02:23

@linux-ka try to clear your cache in tmp: rm -rf /tmp/urxvt-tabbedex and retry your install effort.

demize commented on 2014-01-27 13:35

Works fine for me too.

First of all, never post localized error messages.
Second, Always post full error messages.

Works fine here.

linux-ka commented on 2014-01-27 09:18

I cannot build the current version.

git fails cloning :

==> FEHLER: /tmp/urxvt-tabbedex ist kein Klon von
Breche ab ...
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build urxvt-tabbedex

cloning maunally before calling the PKGBUILD is successful. There might be kind of a bug in the PKGBUILD.

demize commented on 2014-01-13 11:50

That is correct, I'll update them in a little bit.

karol_007 commented on 2014-01-12 19:24

urxvt-tabbedex.install suggests using ~/.Xdefaults, which are deprecated. ~/.Xresources is the new way.

This is flagged out-of-date but isn't. 0.4 represents the most recent version tag on github. If you want more recent code I recommend urxvt-tabbedex-git.

Remove parentheses around install file.

donniezazen commented on 2012-04-03 05:20

install file does not exist.

ypoluektovich commented on 2012-02-23 15:13

Why is an .install file listed in the PKGBUILD when no such file exists in the tarball?

thanks for the offer, as you probably have seen by now, I sent you a patch file.

For anyone interested, the newest version of my version is available at

Hi zsd, like Schnouki says, GitHub is the best thing to use.

I'm afraid I've not been able to devote much time to maintaining this, so there is already several pull requests waiting on GitHub. I hope to deal with them soon. Alternatively, you can email me a patch file and I can apply it upstream, mailto: mail4stb at gmail dot com

Schnouki commented on 2012-01-03 10:09

@zsd: The best thing would be to get that merged upstream. GitHub is quite nice for this (fork original repo, add your changes, send a pull request).

I have some updates to
- add some functionality
- name tabs via an escape sequence
- ensure the current tab's name is shown in the tab bar
- fix / work around some bugs
- work around bugs in 9.12 which cause tabbed windows to open with
the wrong number of rows and columns. (Unfortunately, the urxvt bugs
changed in 9.14, but if anyone wants to improve/fix this for 9.14,
that would be great.)
- the old code threw away all command-line args except for -e <cmd>, which
means that args like '-ls' were ignored. This code fixes that.

I could put a patch file (or the whole thing) here, but what is the
politically correct way to do it in this part of the world? In the
interim, interested parties can pick it up from

No, the only way to do that would be to edit the tabbedex Perl script yourself.

I don't have time at the moment to add new features. If you want to have a go yourself feel free to clone my github repo and send me a pull request.

Can I use this for starting urxvt in a specific tabbing mode,with like 3 tabs opened,one called 'mail',the second called 'irc' and the last one 'irc'?It would be quite cool!

Schnouki commented on 2010-09-29 16:09

Nice package, thanks! :)

This pkg only includes the tabbedex plugin, so you can install it with any version of rxvt-unicode. In community is the 256 color patch (rxvt-unicode-256color). If you want this patch, first remove rxvt-unicode:
sudo pacman -Rs urxvt-tabbedex rxvt-unicode
sudo pacman -S rxvt-unicode-256color
yaourt -S urxvt-tabbedex
(or whatever AUR wrapper you use instead of yaourt)

Anonymous comment on 2010-07-27 04:13

You should add the 256 color patch, though.
