Hi,

my main terminal emulator font is terminus. Unfortunately it lacks quite a lot of characters, so I searched for an addition and found code200[012].
I copied the .ttf files to ~/.fonts.
Code:
$ fc-list | grep -i code
/home/ahuemer/.fonts/CODE2002.TTF: Code2002:style=Regular,Normal,obyčejné,Standard,Κανονικά,Normaali,Normál,Normale,Standaard,Normalny,Обычный,Normalan,Normálne,Navadno,thường,Arrunta
/home/ahuemer/.fonts/CODE2000.TTF: Code2000:style=Regular,Normal,obyčejné,Standard,Κανονικά,Normaali,Normál,Normale,Standaard,Normalny,Обычный,Normalan,Normálne,Navadno,thường,Arrunta
/home/ahuemer/.fonts/CODE2001.TTF: Code2001:style=Regular,Normal,obyčejné,Standard,Κανονικά,Normaali,Normál,Normale,Standaard,Normalny,Обычный,Normalan,Normálne,Navadno,thường,Arrunta

Then I tried to run urxvt with just code2000 as normal font but didn't succeed.
Code:
$ urxvt -fn "xft:Code2000"
urxvt: unable to load base fontset, please specify a valid one using -fn, aborting.

Unfortunately I have no idea what I could try.
Any hints welcome.
Thanks in advance.

what kind of letters are you missing? because I have the same problems, and I think its not the font, but urxvt!

I have tried these fonts:

Code:
 % cat .Xdefaults
URxvt*background:          #000
URxvt*foreground:         #f2f2f2
URxvt*fading:            30
URxvt*scrollColor:         gray30
URxvt*troughColor:         gray0
URxvt*saveLines:         3000
URxvt*cursorBlink:         true
URxvt*scrollstyle:         plain
URxvt*scrollTtyOutput:         false
URxvt*scrollWithBuffer:         true
URxvt*scrollTtyKeypress:      true
URxvt*visualBell:         false
URxvt*mapAlert:            true
#URxvt*font:            xft:Fixed:pixelsize=14:rgba=vrgb:antialias=true
#URxvt*font:         xft:Bitstream Vera Sans Mono:rgba=vrgb:antialias=true:pixelsize=15
#URxvt*font:         xft:Lomonosov V:pixelsize=12
#URxvt*font:         xft:Luxi Mono:pixelsize=12
URxvt*font:         xft:DejaVu Sans Mono:style=Book:pixelsize=15:antialias=true:rgba=vrgb
#URxvt*font:         -misc-fixed-*-*-*-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-*-*


currently I am using "Fixed" and I cannot imagine, that Fixed does not even has German umlauts.

for the record:
Code:
 % eix rxvt-uni 
[I] x11-terms/rxvt-unicode
     Available versions:  9.15 ~9.15-r1 {{256-color afterimage alt-font-width blink buffer-on-clear fading-colors +focused-urgency +font-styles iso14755 +mousewheel +perl pixbuf secondary-wheel startup-notification unicode3 +vanilla wcwidth xft}}
     Installed versions:  9.15(15:26:45 06/05/12)(focused-urgency font-styles iso14755 mousewheel perl startup-notification vanilla xft -256-color -afterimage -alt-font-width -blink -buffer-on-clear -fading-colors -pixbuf -secondary-wheel -unicode3 -wcwidth)
     Homepage:            http://software.schmorp.de/pkg/rxvt-unicode.html
     Description:         rxvt clone with xft and unicode support

check out:

Code:
 LC_ALL=en_US.utf8 urxvt


works for me. I guess I have to check my language settings.

I had a similar problem with the locale en_DK, which wasn't supported by libX11,
