CONFIGURE OPTIONS General hint: if you get compile errors, then likely your configuration hasn't been tested well. Either try with --enable-everything or use the ./reconf script as a base for experiments. ./reconf is used by myself, so it should generally be a working config. Of course, you should always report when a combination doesn't work, so it can be fixed. Marc Lehmann <email@example.com>. --enable-everything Add support for all non-multichoice options listed in "./configure --help". Note that unlike other enable options this is order dependant. You can specify this and then disable options which this enables by *following* this with the appropriate commands. --enable-xft Add support for Xft (anti-aliases, among others) fonts. Xft fonts are slower and require lots of memory, but as long as you don't use them, you don't pay for them. --enable-font-styles Add support for bold, *italic* and *bold italic* font styles. The fonts can be set manually or automatically. --with-codesets=NAME,... Compile in support for additional codeset (encoding) groups ("eu", "vn" are always compiled in, which includes most 8-bit character sets). These codeset tables are used for driving X11 core fonts, they are not required for Xft fonts, although having them compiled in lets rxvt-unicode choose replacement fonts more intelligently. Compiling them in will make your binary bigger (all of together cost about 700kB), but it doesn't increase memory usage unless you use a font requiring one of these encodings. all all available codeset groups zh common chinese encodings zh_ext rarely used but very big chinese encodigs jp common japanese encodings jp_ext rarely used but big japanese encodings kr korean encodings --enable-xim Add support for XIM (X Input Method) protocol. This allows using alternative input methods (e.g. kinput2) and will also correctly set up the input for people using dead keys or compose keys. --enable-unicode3 Enable direct support for displaying unicode codepoints above 65535 (the basic multilingual page). This increases storage requirements per character from 2 to 4 bytes. X11 fonts do not yet support these extra characters, but Xft does. Please note that rxvt-unicode can store unicode code points >65535 even without this flag, but the number of such characters is limited to a view thousand (shared with combining characters, see next switch), and right now rxvt-unicode cannot display them (input/output and cut&paste still work, though). --enable-combining Enable automatic composition of combining characters into composite characters. This is required for proper viewing of text where accents are encoded as seperate unicode characters. This is done by using precomposited characters when available or creating new pseudo-characters when no precomposed form exists. Without --enable-unicode3, the number of additional precomposed characters is rather limited (2048, if this is full, rxvt-unicode will use the private use area, extending the number of combinations to 8448). With --enable-unicode3, no practical limit exists. This option will also enable storage (but not display) of characters beyond plane 0 (>65535) when --enable-unicode3 was not specified. The combining table also contains entries for arabic presentation forms, but these are not currently used. Bug me if you want these to be used (and tell me how these are to be used...). --enable-fallback(=CLASS) When reading resource settings, also read settings for class CLASS (default: Rxvt). To disable resource fallback use --disable-fallback. --with-res-name=NAME Use the given name (default: urxvt) as default application name when reading resources. Specify --with-res-name=rxvt to replace rxvt. --with-res-class=CLASS Use the given class (default: URxvt) as default application class when reading resources. Specify --with-res-class=Rxvt to replace rxvt. --enable-utmp Write user and tty to utmp file (used by programs like w) at start of rxvt execution and delete information when rxvt exits. --enable-wtmp Write user and tty to wtmp file (used by programs like last) at start of rxvt execution and write logout when rxvt exits. This option requires --enable-utmp to also be specified. --enable-lastlog Write user and tty to lastlog file (used by programs like lastlogin) at start of rxvt execution. This option requires --enable-utmp to also be specified. --enable-xpm-background Add support for XPM background pixmaps. --enable-transparency Add support for inheriting parent backgrounds thus giving a fake transparency to the term. --enable-fading Add support for fading the text when focus is lost. --enable-tinting Add support for tinting of transparent backgrounds. --enable-menubar Add support for our menu bar system (this interacts badly with dynamic locale switching currently). --enable-rxvt-scroll Add support for the original rxvt scrollbar. --enable-next-scroll Add support for a NeXT-like scrollbar. --enable-xterm-scroll Add support for an Xterm-like scrollbar. --enable-plain-scroll Add support for a very unobtrusive, plain-looking scrollbar that is the favourite of the rxvt-unicode author, having used it for many years. --enable-half-shadow Make shadows on the scrollbar only half the normal width & height. only applicable to rxvt scrollbars. --enable-ttygid Change tty device setting to group "tty" - only use this if your system uses this type of security. --disable-backspace-key Disable any handling of the backspace key by us - let the X server do it. --disable-delete-key Disable any handling of the delete key by us - let the X server do it. --disable-resources Remove all resources checking. --enable-xgetdefault Make resources checking via XGetDefault() instead of our small version which only checks ~/.Xdefaults, or if that doesn't exist then ~/.Xresources. Please note that nowadays, things like XIM will automatically pull in and use the full X resource manager, so the overhead of using it might be very small, if nonexistant. --enable-strings Add support for our possibly faster memset() function and other various routines, overriding your system's versions which may have been hand-crafted in assembly or may require extra libraries to link in. (this breaks ANSI-C rules and has problems on many GNU/Linux systems). --disable-swapscreen Remove support for swap screen. --enable-frills Add support for many small features that are not essential but nice to have. Normally you want this, but for very small binaries you may want to disable this. A non-exhaustive list of features enabled by "--enable-frills" (possibly in combination with other switches) is: MWM-hints EWMH-hints (pid, utf8 names) and protocols (ping) seperate underline colour settable border widths and borderless switch settable extra linespacing iso-14755-2 and -3, and visual feedback backindex and forwardindex escape sequence window op and some xterm/OSC escape sequences tripleclickwords settable insecure mode keysym remapping support cursor blinking and underline cursor -embed and -pty-fd options --enable-iso14755 Enable extended ISO 14755 support (see rxvt(1), or doc/rxvt.1.txt). Basic support (section 5.1) is enabled by "--enable-frills", while support for 5.2, 5.3 and 5.4 is enabled with this switch. --enable-keepscrolling Add support for continual scrolling of the display when you hold the mouse button down on a scrollbar arrow. --enable-mousewheel Add support for scrolling via mouse wheel or buttons 4 & 5. --enable-slipwheeling Add support for continual scrolling (using the mouse wheel as an accelerator) while the control key is held down. This option requires --enable-mousewheel to also be specified. --disable-new-selection Remove support for mouse selection style like that of xterm. --enable-dmalloc Use Gray Watson's malloc - which is good for debugging See http://www.letters.com/dmalloc/ for details If you use either this or the next option, you may need to edit src/Makefile after compiling to point DINCLUDE and DLIB to the right places. You can only use either this option and the following (should you use either) . --enable-dlmalloc Use Doug Lea's malloc - which is good for a production version See <http://g.oswego.edu/dl/html/malloc.html> for details. --enable-smart-resize Add smart growth/shrink behaviour when changing font size via from hot keys. This should keep in a fixed position the rxvt corner which is closest to a corner of the screen. --enable-pointer-blank Add support to have the pointer disappear when typing or inactive. --with-name=NAME Set the basename for the installed binaries (default: "urxvt", resulting in "urxvt", "urxvtd" etc.). Specify "--with-name=rxvt" to replace with "rxvt". --with-term=NAME Change the environmental variable for the terminal to NAME (default "rxvt-unicode") --with-terminfo=PATH Change the environmental variable for the path to the terminfo tree to PATH. --with-x Use the X Window System (pretty much default, eh?). --with-xpm-includes=DIR Look for the XPM includes in DIR. --with-xpm-library=DIR Look for the XPM library in DIR. --with-xpm Not needed - define via --enable-xpm-background.
