101 <title>Configuring rxvt-unicode</title>
102
103 <para>The <application>rxvt-unicode</application> terminal emulator
104 uses the resource class <classname>URxvt</classname> and the resource name
105 <classname>urxvt</classname>. You can add X resource definitions to the user's
106 <filename>~/.Xresources</filename> file, or to the system-wide
107 <filename>/etc/X11/app-defaults/URxvt</filename> file.
108 The following example provides a way to load the <classname>matcher</classname>
109 <application>Perl</application> extension (assuming <application>Perl</application>
110 support wasn't disabled), which enables a middle button click to open an underline URL
111 in the specified browser. It also sets a background and a foreground
112 color and loads an Xft font. Accomplish this by adding the following definitions as
113 the <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> user:</para>
114
115<screen role="root"><userinput>cat &gt;&gt; /etc/X11/app-defaults/URxvt &lt;&lt; "EOF"
116URxvt*perl-ext: matcher
117URxvt*urlLauncher: firefox
118URxvt.background: black
119URxvt.foreground: yellow
120URxvt*font: xft:Monospace:pixelsize=12
121EOF</userinput></screen>
122
123 <para>The <application>rxvt-unicode</application> application can also run in
124 a daemon mode, which makes it possible to open multiple terminal windows within the
125 same process. The <command>urxvtc</command> client then connects to the
126 <command>urxvtd</command> daemon and requests a new terminal window.</para>
127
128 <note>
129 <para>Use that option with caution. If the daemon crashes, all the
130 running processes in the terminal windows are terminated.</para>
131 </note>
132
133 <para>
134 You can start the <command>urxvtd</command> daemon in the system or
135 personal startup <command>X</command> session scripts (e.g.,
136 <filename>~/.xinitrc</filename>) by adding the following lines near the top of
137 the script:</para>
138
139<screen><userinput><literal># Start the urxvtd daemon
140urxvtd -q -f -o &amp;
141</literal></userinput></screen>
142
143 <para>For more information, examine the <command>urxvt</command>,
144 <command>urxvtd</command>, <command>urxvtc</command>, and <filename>urxvtperl</filename>
