I have xterm and rxvt-unicode installed.
I always use rxvt-unicode.

Now, I installed vim and using it for editing text files.

Vim opens in INSERT mode in rxvt-unicode.
But vim opens in COMMAND mode in xterm.

I want vim to open in COMMAND mode in all of my terminal.

I am checking ~/.vimrc and googling online.
But solution not found yet.
Please suggest if anyone can.

It doesn't sound like a urxvt specific as in my terminal vim opens in command mode.

Anyway, this is how to make vim starts straight to:

INSERT mode:
Code:

vim -c startinsert


Or avoid INSERT mode (it should means to start in COMMAND mode):
Code:

vim -c stopinsert

That is the problem of Vim with transparency of rxvt-unicode.
There is a thread about it at ArchLinux forum.
That is the reason I admire ArchLinux, I no longer use it though.
