Hello radky,

Many thanks for all your work.
I have installed UrxvtControl-1.2 into my personal remaster of Dpup Wheezy 3.5.2.11 which remains my most-frequently-used Puppy.

Also I wanted to try compiling the latest version of urxvt which is 9.22 so I did that with configure options --enable-everything --disable-startup-notifications (are these used or needed for anything in Puppy?).

Then I used your perl modules .pet as a guide to figure out which perl files I needed to move from the devx into the main Puppy .iso

Are you aware of any pitfalls that I might encounter with this urxvt upgrade or do you have any other advice or suggestions?

Otherwise everything seems OK so far. I will report any issues that may arise as I continue to test it out. Thanks again.

@OscarTalks,

Thanks for your comments.

I'm currently testing the tahrpup64 6.0.5.3 beta which also has urxvt 9.22.

As shown below, the urxvt in tahrpup64 was compiled with all the configure options you could possibly require and works great with UrxvtControl.
Code:
rxvt-unicode (urxvt) v9.22 - released: 2016-01-23
options: perl,xft,styles,combining,blink,iso14755,unicode3,
encodings=eu+vn+jp+jp-ext+kr+zh+zh-ext,fade,transparent,tint,
pixbuf,XIM,frills,selectionscrolling,wheel,slipwheel,cursorBlink,
pointerBlank,scrollbars=plain+rxvt+NeXT+xterm

I see no functional utility for the startup-notication option in urxvt, but I do find the perl extensions very useful, particularly the multi-tab interface and auto-copy of selected text to the X-Clipboard.

At the moment, I'm not aware of any problems with the upgrade to urxvt 9.22.

-------

PS - Dpup Wheezy 3.5.2.11 was a great release by pemasu. I fully understand why it may be your favorite Puppy. Smile

hi radky,

one really annoying thing i've found with urxvt over the years is when you try to scroll back when it's processing stuff, the focus shifts back to the bottom, so you can't read what you wanted to look at!

this is from the archwiki and fixes that
add to /root/.Xdefaults
Code:
URxvt*scrollTtyOutput: false
URxvt*scrollWithBuffer: true
URxvt*scrollTtyKeypress: true


also it would be nice to get the change fontsize on the fly working https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/rxvt-unicode

cheers

phil

Thank you so much! It works perfectly in Fatdog64. That scrolling back really annoyed me.

I usually use Ctrl-S / Ctrl-Q combination to pause and unpause the output before scrolling up and down.

The scrollTtyOutput and scrollTtyKeypress parameters are already defined by UrxvtControl. I'll add the scrollWithBuffer parameter in the next release.

Yes, this should be possible for the next release. In fact, on initial testing the font-size perl extension is working very nicely in tahrpup. I'll configure UrxvtControl-1.3 to support changing font size on-the-fly for urxvt >= 9.2.1.

Thanks for your interest in UrxvtControl. Smile

Also, thanks to step and jamesbond for helpful comments.

Is it just me or does urxvt only allow monospace fonts? When I use UrxvtControl-1.2 to choose a proportional font for urxvt, such as dingbats, Urxvt won't even open a console when I click on the desktop "console" icon. It works fine for all monospace fonts. I'm using Quirky Werewolf 64 bit at the moment.

@Flash,

xerrs.log shows the following urxvt response for Dingbats and FontAwesome in Quirky Xerus64:

Code:
unable to calculate font width for 'Dingbats:style=Regular:pixelsize=14:antialias=True:hinting=True:minspace=True', ignoring.
unable to load base fontset, please specify a valid one using -fn, aborting.

unable to calculate font width for 'FontAwesome:style=Regular:pixelsize=14:antialias=True:hinting=True:minspace=True', ignoring.
unable to load base fontset, please specify a valid one using -fn, aborting.


All other fonts in Quirky Xerus are valid in urxvt, so use those instead.

Typically, monospace fonts provide the best visual experience in urxvt.

If you prefer proportional fonts, the text in the terminal window may have relatively wide spacing but you can adjust this with the 'Spacing' option of UrxvtControl.

UrxvtControl-1.3

- Available in first post
- Add support for 'scrollWithBuffer:true' which enables active scrollback to buffered terminal text
- Add perl-extension support for changing urxvt font-size by hotkey (resize-font plugin)
- Add Resize option to the main GUI (enable/disable resize-font plugin)
- The resize-font plugin provides the following keyboard shortcuts
• Ctrl+Up: Increase font size of the current terminal
• Ctrl+Down: Decrease font size of the current terminal
• Ctrl+equal: Reset font size to original numerical value
• Ctrl+slash: Show current font resource in popup dialog

Please see caveats in the first post concerning urxvt plugins (resize-font and tabbed).
