Giving URxvt a try again

It’s that time of year again. Some applications come and others go. This time it’s gnome-terminal that goes. The thing with rxvt-unicode is that you need to configure it to be pretty. Luckely I found a page containing nice colors and settings. At the moment I have only tried it for a few minutes, but I already like it. Let’s see how this goes.

Alt stopped working in rxvt-unicode

My Alt key stopped working in rxvt-unicode. Still works in Firefox. I don’t have any idea about how it stopped working. After some searching and trying, I found out that I had to add a line to my .Xdefaults file. URxvt.modifier: meta After reloading the file with xrdb -merge ~/.Xdefaults, the Alt key started working again as it did before.
