urxvt

Hi

Star did install Urxvt. It is a good terminal. But the view of the text is very to small (generally: in the terminal as well as in terminal applications like nano, my prefered editor). Second problem is the choice of colors in nano (accentued, of course through the fact that the size of text is to small).
Is there a REALLY easy way to change that how to desinstall this (in my case not operable) application without benefit for me?

(actually, I log into an other console in using CTRL+ALT+F2 the size of those texts as well as the colors in nano are best for me! it would be enough to extend the settings of pure console to consoles in Xwindow! Why complexe if it would be so simple? The problem changing the console is that you can't compare two or 3 texts at the same time!)

It is very easy. Just create file

.Xresources

in your home dir

nano .Xresources

and past this to that file

URxvt.scrollBar: false

Re: urxvt

Note that rxvt-unicode will read ~/.Xdefaults if there are no resources set (ie, if ~/.Xresources does not exist). The file is read automatically on startup so there's no need to run xrdb --merge to apply any configuration changes.

The man pages are very good, especially section 7 (the configuration options).
