116 <para>The <application>rxvt-unicode</application> terminal emulator uses the
117 resource class <classname>URxvt</classname> and the resource name
118 <classname>urxvt</classname>. You can add X resource definitions to a user's
119 <filename>~/.Xresources</filename> or <filename>~/.Xdefaults</filename>
120 files or to the system-wide <filename>/etc/X11/app-defaults/URxvt</filename>
121 file. The following example will load the <classname>matcher</classname>
122 <application>Perl</application> extension (assuming
123 <application>Perl</application> support wasn't disabled), which enables a
124 left button click to open an underlined URL in the specified browser, sets a
125 background and foreground color and loads an Xft font:</para>
126
127<screen><userinput>cat &gt;&gt; /etc/X11/app-defaults/URxvt &lt;&lt; "EOF"
128<literal>! Use the specified colour as the windows background colour [default white]
129URxvt*background: black
130
131! Use the specified colour as the windows foreground colour [default black]
132URxvt*foreground: yellow
133
134! Select the fonts to be used. This is a comma separated list of font names
135URxvt*font: xft:Monospace:pixelsize=18
136
137! Comma-separated list(s) of perl extension scripts (default: "default")
138URxvt*perl-ext: matcher
139
140! Specifies the program to be started with a URL argument. Used by
141URxvt*url-launcher: firefox
142
143! When clicked with the mouse button specified in the "matcher.button" resource
144! (default 2, or middle), the program specified in the "matcher.launcher"
145! resource (default, the "url-launcher" resource, "sensible-browser") will be
146! started with the matched text as first argument.
147! Below, default modified to mouse left button.

151 <para>In order to view the defined X resources, issue:</para>

155 <para>In order to add the modifications of the new user configuration file,
156 keeping previously X configurations (of course, unless you are changing any
157 on previously define), issue:</para>
158
159<screen><userinput>xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources</userinput></screen>
160
161 <para>The <application>rxvt-unicode</application> application can also run
162 in a daemon mode, which makes it possible to open multiple terminal windows
163 within the same process. The <command>urxvtc</command> client then connects
164 to the <command>urxvtd</command> daemon and requests a new terminal window.
165 Use this option with caution. If the daemon crashes, all the running
166 processes in the terminal windows are terminated.</para>
167
168 <para>You can start the <command>urxvtd</command> daemon in the system or
169 personal startup <command>X</command> session script (e.g.,
170 <filename>~/.xinitrc</filename>) by adding the following lines near the top
171 of the script:</para>
172
173<screen><userinput><literal># Start the urxvtd daemon
174urxvtd -q -f -o &amp;</literal></userinput></screen>
175
176 <para>For more information, examine the <command>urxvt</command>,
177 <command>urxvtd</command>, <command>urxvtc</command>, and
178 <filename>urxvtperl</filename> man pages.</para>

180 <para>If you use a Desktop Environment, a menu entry can be included,
181 issuing, as the <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> user:</para>
