Hi guys,

I just updated world and now the "user@localhost ~$" that used to be bold face is not bold face anymore; however, it is still bold face when I open "terminal".

Any idea?

Thanks

Efo

Are other items in *rxvt still bold, like directories and such?

Thank you for the answer WakkaDojo,

The directories are not bold face anymore, and it looks like nothing is bold face anymore.

It sounds like it might need be enabled in your ~/.Xdefaults or ~/.Xresources (one or the other, you should only have one). That is to say that this was manually configured not to allow bold fonts, which is likely not the case since the problem you're describing wasn't from manual configuration.

What might have happened is your terminal's font either doesn't have a bold counterpart, or your environment isn't defining a bold font. By default it is the bold version of the terminal's default font. In x terminal emulators they automatically selects the bold font counterpart based on the font path loaded when X starts. So, if you updated X and got a new /etc/X11/xorg.conf or something then you might have lost your font paths and this would make it so the x terminal emulator doesn't know what to do about bold fonts because (a) your local configuration file (eg ~/.Xdefaults) doesn't specify it, or (b) You don't have it on your font path. Try adding this to /etc/X11/xorg.conf under files:
Code:
Section "Files"
    ...
    FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/misc:unscaled"
    ...
EndSection

Then restart X. If that doesn't help, post back with the following information:
1. Which terminal emulator you are using
2. Your ~/.Xdefaults or ~/.Xresources (whichever you use), or if you don't have one set up
3. Your /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Also, check out this website: http://howto.wikia.com/wiki/Howto_configure_xterm/All_configs[/url]. Though it is an xterm configuration site, most of the configurations are supported by all xterm type emulators (aterm, eterm, rxvt, etc.), with the exception of truetype fonts which require more specific emulating programs.

Ooops, my first post may be confusing (sorry). In xterm the bold face works fine, it is in mrxvt that the bold face disappeared. I would assume it has something to do with mrxvt configuration file. What do you think?

Well you still haven't posted whichever terminal configuration file you have... if you have one that is. Post one of the files mentioned above, and if you don't have one I'll come up with a line to force the font to see if that works.

Why don't you try to duplicate your xterm font configurations for mrxvt by adding the following to ~/.Xdefaults
Code:
mrxvt*font:-*-terminus-medium-*-*-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1

Since everything is working fine in xterm it is obviously not a X11 problem, but just a configuration problem.

I like terminus too, it's awesome. :-)

That doesnt work. I think it has something to do with the configuration file for mrxvt because it used to work and the update may have changed something. Here is my .mrxvtrc (I dont think the update changed this though):

# Sample configuration for mrxvt-0.5.0. To use, copy it to ~/.mrxvtrc.
#
# This sets up a pseudo-transparent terminal with black tinted background, Xft
# font, a transparent Firefox style tab-bar, and a next style scroll bar.
#
# Additionally, using the -name option you can get the following behaviour:
#
# Full screen:
# Start mrxvt with "mrxvt -name FullScreen". Produces a full screen
# terminal.
#
# Kitchen Sink:
# Start mrxvt with "mrxvt -name KitchenSink". This produces an mrxvt
# window with three tabs on startup. It loads your shell in the first tab,
# and vim and mutt in the other two tabs. There aren't any other
# applications you need to load anyway... ;)
#
# FvwmConsole:
# Produces a small blue tinted terminal, mainly for use as an fvwm
# console. Just load the FvwmConsole module with
#
# FvwmConsole -terminal mrxvt
#
# and these settings will be used.
#
# Root:
# Start mrxvt with "mrxvt -name Root". This produces a green tinted mrxvt
# windows which loads a root shell in the first tab. Ctrl+Shift+t opens a
# new tab as root, and Ctrl+Shift+n opens a new tab as a regular user.
#


#

# Make the terminal title the same as the active tab title.

Well we can check when the last modification of that file was. Execute the following command as your user, not as root:
Code:
ls -alh ~/.Xdefaults | awk '{print $6,$7,$8}'

Is the output sooner or later than the last update your ran?

That file is pretty old,;however, it looks like that file modifies the behavior of xterm, which works fine.

Okay I forgot to mention something earlier about when we did the font line in .Xdefaults. It is required that you either restart X or run "xrdb merge .Xdefaults" for that configuration file to be loaded. Try that again.

Also, lets find out if it indeed has to do with the mrxvt configuration file. If the above doesn't work then just copy the .mrxvtrc to another name (.mrxvt.bak or something) then restart X and see if the the problem persists. It might create a new .mrxvtrc in it's place with the default settings, which most likely allow bold fonts. I use rxvt and the defaults for that program do allow for bold. However I doubt this is the solution. The above is more likely to work.

EDIT:

By the way that file doesn't modify the behavior of xterm. If it does then I'm missing something, and please fill me in :-P

I restarted X and everything is the same, except for the colors and layout of .mrxvt that changed to the default setting, but still no bold face.

hmm I'm really running out of ideas here! I can't imagine the USE flags have anything to do with this, so remerging probably won't change anything. So, sorry I can't help you any further. I'll look into it here and there.

My advice is to go to the xterm configuration link and mess around with bold font configurations by adding mrxvt*configuration and options to your .Xdefaults and hopefully that will help. Keep me posted on this thread.

Ok, I downgraded to an early version and the bold face is back. The file updated bu etc-update are:

/etc/mrxvt/default.menu
/etc/mrxvt/mrxvtrc
/etc/mrxvt/mrxvtrc.sample
/etc/mrxvt/submenus.menu

I tired to use the old ones instead of the updated one but no luck, it may be a bug in x11-terms/mrxvt-0.5.3-r1.
For now I will keep the old version.

Thank you four help.

Sounds like a bug to me, but you never know. Are you unmasking mrxvt? If so then perhaps you have some unstable version. Anyway, it was my pleasure trying to work things out with you.

Hi,

I can confirm this. Same mrxvt version. From what I know, they had some major changes from 0.4.x -> 0.5.x. Doesn't really bother me, but just to let you know you're not alone. Haven't taken a closer look yet.

Cheers,
Drag0n

Hi,

appending the following two options to my ~/.Xdefaults fixes the issue for me:

Code:

mrxvt.boldColor: False
mrxvt.veryBright: True


Hope that helps.

Cheers,
Drag0n

Hi guys,

I got back to the problem now that I found a new mrxvt (0.5.3-r2) in portage. It looks like Drag0n suggestion was close to what I needed. I added:

mrxvt.boldColor: True
mrxvt.veryBright: True

to the the FONTS section in my .mrxvtrc and that did it.

Thanks to all.
