  1. [ubuntu] Re: Setting function key macros for xterms?

    I avoid using xrdb (it's too blunt an instrument to be useful). Instead, I set XAPPLRESDIR to my own app-defaults directory, and customize things there. :)

    [ubuntu] Re: xterm and xdiagnose

    xterm is shipped because the alternative terminal is not suitable for "safe" startup. For what it's worth, Ubuntu exists in a sort of time-delayed mode (a year or two) from current development. ...

    [ubuntu] Re: I have three different terminal versions

    It depends - they're not all the same. xterm is the most actively-developed terminal emulator, followed by rxvt-unicode. VTE-based terminals (notably the ones mentioned above) are fairly stagnant...

    The reason for xterm/uxterm showing up is mentioned here:

    Essentially, the xterm icons show up in the menus because the safe-settings use...

    [ubuntu] Re: I have three different terminal versions

    More likely (noticed originally as a Konsole (mis)feature), the terminal may be starting in some other directory than the user's home directory, e.g., the Desktop. That's easily checked by using...

    [ubuntu] Re: Which TTF font for XTERM?

    xfontsel only looks at XLFD fonts (those reported by xlsfonts). There's no technical reason why it couldn't have been modified as was xfd and xterm to look at a listing from fontconfig, but rather...

    [ubuntu] Re: xterm sometimes doesn't display text

    The usual reason for display problems in Ubuntu is the buggy compiz feature that they've been providing for the past 3-4 years. (Sometimes this affects emacs as well - perhaps it's "improved"). ...

    [SOLVED] Re: Terminals

    XTerm always "has" UTF-8 (Unicode) support, because it is compiled-in.
    But by default, XTerm is compatible with DEC VT102/VT220/etc, which
    do not provide that feature (long technical explanation)....

    [SOLVED] Re: ^s makes xterm hang

    That's odd - since the feature is (from xterm's point of view) implemented
    in the operating system's terminal drivers. Whether XON is initially enabled

    Re: Terminal v. XTerm

    Probably not. There are two "uxterm" instances that I recall: (a) a very old
