RFE: Merge rxvt-unicode subpackages
Last modified: 2016-07-19 13:30:47 EDT
Description of problem:
Running this perl script:
in a urxvt term shows that colours beyond 87 are missing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download the script above and run perl colortest
2. Compare the output with what you see in xterm or gnome-terminal
OK, so, I see that 256 color support is provided in a separate packagerxvt-unicode-256color , and a separate binary, urxvt256c. This is really confusing for users, and is inconsistent with 99% of the web documentation. Why don't we switch to building 256 color support by default?
Similarly, I don't see any reason not to ship the default binary with multi language support. Shipping the four separate binaries really doesn't seem to serve much purpose? Or am I missing something?
