    rxvt (ouR XVT) - a VT102 emulator for the X window system



    rxvt [options] [-e command [ args ]]



    rxvt, version 2.6.3, is a colour vt102 terminal emulator intended as an xterm(1) replacement for users who do not require features such as Tektronix 4014 emulation and toolkit-style configurability. As a result, rxvt uses much less swap space -- a significant advantage on a machine serving many X sessions.



    The rxvt options (mostly a subset of xterm's) are listed below. In keeping with the smaller-is-better philosophy, options may be eliminated or default values chosen at compile-time, so options and defaults listed may not accurately reflect the version installed on your system. `rxvt -h' gives a list of major compile-time options on the usage line. Option descriptions may be prefixed with which compile option each is dependent upon. e.g. `Compile XIM:' requires XIM on the usage line. Note: `rxvt -help' gives a list of all options compiled into your version.

    Note that rxvt permits the resource name to be used as a long-option (--/++ option) so the potential command-line options are far greater than those listed. For example: `rxvt --loginShell --color1 Orange'.

    -help, --help
    Print out a message describing available options.
    -display displayname
    Attempt to open a window on the named X display (-d still respected). In the absence of this option, the display specified by the DISPLAY environment variable is used.

    -fg colour
    Window foreground colour; resource foreground.
    -pixmap: file[;geom]
    Compile XPM: Specify XPM file for the background and also optionally specify its scaling with a geometry string. Note you may need to add quotes to avoid special shell interpretation of the `;' in the command-line; resource backgroundPixmap.

    Start as a login-shell/sub-shell; resource loginShell.
    Compile utmp: Inhibit/enable writing a utmp entry; resource utmpInhibit.
    Turn on/off visual bell on receipt of a bell character; resource visualBell.

    Put scrollbar on right/left; resource scrollBar_right.
    Display normal (non XTerm/NeXT) scrollbar without/with a trough; resource scrollBar_floating.
    Start iconified, if the window manager supports that option. Alternative form is -ic.
    -sl number
    Save number lines in the scrollback buffer; resource saveLines.
    -tn termname
    This option specifies the name of the terminal type to be set in the TERM environment variable. This terminal type must exist in the termcap(5) database and should have li# and co# entries; resource termName.
    -e command [arguments]
    Run the command with its command-line arguments in the rxvt window; also sets the window title and icon name to be the basename of the program being executed if neither -title (-T) nor -n are given on the command line. If this option is used, it must be the last on the command-line. If there is no -e option then the default is to run the program specified by the SHELL environment variable or, failing that, sh(1).
    -title text
    Window title (-T still respected); the default title is the basename of the program specified after the -e option, if any, otherwise the application name; resource title.

    -xrm resourcestring
    No effect on rxvt. Simply passes through an argument to be made available in the instance's argument list. Appears in WM_COMMAND in some window managers.

    RESOURCES (available also as long-options)

    Note: `rxvt --help' gives a list of all resources (long options) compiled into your version. If compiled with internal Xresources support (i.e. rxvt -h lists .Xdefaults) then rxvt accepts application defaults set in XAPPLOADDIR/Rxvt (compile-time defined: usually /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults/Rxvt) and resources set in ~/.Xdefaults, or ~/.Xresources if ~/.Xdefaults does not exist. Note that when reading X resources, rxvt recognizes two class names: XTerm and Rxvt. The class name XTerm allows resources common to both rxvt and xterm to be easily configured, while the class name Rxvt allows resources unique to rxvt, notably colours and key-handling, to be shared between different rxvt configurations. If no resources are specified, suitable defaults will be used. Command-line arguments can be used to override resource settings. The following resources are allowed:

    geometry: geom
    Create the window with the specified X window geometry [default 80x24]; option -geometry.
    background: colour
    Use the specified colour as the window's background colour [default White]; option -bg.
    foreground: colour
    Use the specified colour as the window's foreground colour [default Black]; option -fg.
    colorn: colour
    Use the specified colour for the colour value n, where 0-7 corresponds to low-intensity (normal) colours and 8-15 corresponds to high-intensity (bold = bright foreground, blink = bright background) colours. The canonical names are as follows: 0=black, 1=red, 2=green, 3=yellow, 4=blue, 5=magenta, 6=cyan, 7=white, but the actual colour names used are listed in the COLORS AND GRAPHICS section.
    colorBD: colour
    Use the specified colour to display bold characters when the foreground colour is the default.
    colorUL: colour
    Use the specified colour to display underlined characters when the foreground colour is the default.
    cursorColor: colour
    Use the specified colour for the cursor. The default is to use the foreground colour; option -cr.

    Use the specified XPM file (note the `.xpm' extension is optional) for the background and also optionally specify its scaling with a geometry string WxH+X+Y, in which "W" / "H" specify the horizontal/vertical scale (percent) and "X" / "Y" locate the image centre (percent). A scale of 0 displays the image with tiling. A scale of 1 displays the image without any scaling. A scale of 2 to 9 specifies an integer number of images in that direction. No image will be magnified beyond 10 times its original size. The maximum permitted scale is 1000. [default 0x0+50+50]

    keysym.sym: string
    Associate string with keysym sym (0xFF00 - 0xFFFF). It may contain escape values (\a: bell, \b: backspace, \e, \E: escape, \n: newline, \r: return, \t: tab, \000: octal number) or control characters (^?: delete, ^@: null, ^A ...) and may enclosed with double quotes so that it can start or end with whitespace. The intervening resource name keysym. cannot be omitted. This resource is only available when compiled with KEYSYM_RESOURCE.


    Lines of text that scroll off the top of the rxvt window (resource: saveLines) and can be scrolled back using the scrollbar or by keystrokes. The normal rxvt scrollbar has arrows and its behaviour is fairly intuitive. The xterm-scrollbar is without arrows and its behaviour mimics that of xterm

    Scroll down with Button1 (xterm-scrollbar) or Shift-Next. Scroll up with Button3 (xterm-scrollbar) or Shift-Prior. Continuous scroll with Button2.  


    To temporarily override mouse reporting, for either the scrollbar or the normal text selection/insertion, hold either the Shift or the Meta (Alt) key while performing the desired mouse action.

    If mouse reporting mode is active, the normal scrollbar actions are disabled -- on the assumption that we are using a fullscreen application. Instead, pressing Button1 and Button3 sends ESC[6~ (Next) and ESC[5~ (Prior), respectively. Similarly, clicking on the up and down arrows sends ESC[A (Up) and ESC[B (Down), respectively.  


    The behaviour of text selection and insertion mechanism is similar to xterm(1).

    Left click at the beginning of the region, drag to the end of the region and release; Right click to extend the marked region; Left double-click to select a word; Left triple-click to select the entire line.
    Pressing and releasing the Middle mouse button (or Shift-Insert) in an rxvt window causes the current text selection to be inserted as if it had been typed on the keyboard.


    You can change fonts on-the-fly, which is to say cycle through the default font and others of various sizes, by using Shift-KP_Add and Shift-KP_Subtract. Or, alternatively (if enabled) with Alt-> and Alt-<, where the actual key can be selected using resources smallfont_key/bigfont_key.  


    rxvt tries to write an entry into the utmp(5) file so that it can be seen via the who(1) command, and can accept messages. To allow this feature, rxvt must be installed setuid root on some systems.  


    If graphics support was enabled at compile-time, rxvt can be queried with ANSI escape sequences and can address individual pixels instead of text characters. Note the graphics support is still considered beta code.

    In addition to the default foreground and background colours, rxvt can display up to 16 colours (8 ANSI colours plus high-intensity bold/blink versions of the same). Here is a list of the colours with their rgb.txt names.

    color0 ` (black) ` = Black
    color1 ` (red) ` = Red3

    color2 ` (green) ` = Green3

    color3 ` (yellow) ` = Yellow3

    color4 ` (blue) ` = Blue3

    color5 ` (magenta) ` = Magenta3

    color6 ` (cyan) ` = Cyan3

    color7 ` (white) ` = AntiqueWhite

    color8 ` (bright black) ` = Grey25

    color9 ` (bright red) ` = Red

    color10 ` (bright green) ` = Green

    color11 ` (bright yellow) ` = Yellow

    color12 ` (bright blue) ` = Blue

    color13 ` (bright magenta) ` = Magenta

    color14 ` (bright cyan) ` = Cyan

    color15 ` (bright white) ` = White

    foreground `  ` = Black

    background `  ` = White

    It is also possible to specify the colour values of foreground, background, cursorColor, cursorColor2, colorBD, colorUL as a number 0-15, as a convenient shorthand to reference the colour name of color0-color15.

    Note that -rv ("reverseVideo: True") simulates reverse video by always swapping the foreground/background colours. This is in contrast to xterm(1) where the colours are only swapped if they have not otherwise been specified. For example,

    rxvt -fg Black -bg White -rv
    would yield White on Black, while on xterm(1) it would yield Black on White.


    rxvt sets the environment variables TERM, COLORTERM and COLORFGBG. The environment variable WINDOWID is set to the X window id number of the rxvt window and it also uses and sets the environment variable DISPLAY to specify which display terminal to use. rxvt uses the environment variables RXVTPATH and PATH to find XPM files.  


    System file for login records.
    Color names.



    xterm(1), sh(1), resize(1), X(1), pty(4), tty(4), utmp(5)

    See rxvtRef.html rxvtRef.txt for detailed information on recognized escape sequences and menuBar syntax, etc.



    Check the BUGS file for an up-to-date list.

    Cursor change support is not yet implemented.

    Click-and-drag doesn't work with X11 mouse report overriding.

    Graphics support is fairly crude.
