.Xresources for urxvt:

After starting urxvt, if it looks like .Xresources isn't loaded, one thing we can make sure is to see if all specified fonts are installed and loaded in the system. fontconfig is one tool to check which font config files are enabled for the system.

To list installed font config files: # eselect fontconfig list ============================ Available fontconfig .conf files (* is enabled): [1] 10-autohint.conf * [2] 10-no-sub-pixel.conf [3] 10-sub-pixel-bgr.conf [4] 10-sub-pixel-rgb.conf [5] 10-sub-pixel-vbgr.conf [6] 10-sub-pixel-vrgb.conf [7] 10-unhinted.conf [8] 11-lcdfilter-default.conf [9] 11-lcdfilter-legacy.conf ...

To enable a font config file: # eselect fontconfig enable 10-sub-pixel-rgb.conf # eselect fontconfig enable 4

See if above step allows urxvt to successfully load .Xresources.

That's all!

X11:

After installing x11-base/xorg-drivers and x11-base/xorg-server, X11 may exit with errors complaining, missing twm, xterm, xclock. When that happens, installing these components will fix the issue and hopefully X11 will start.# emerge --ask twm xterm xclock
