Updated: .Xresources for urxvt

The information in this site is the result of my researches in the Internet and of my experiences. This information below is solely used for my purpose and may not be suitable for others.

.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!
