Hello,

I use this ~/.Xdefaults for a while now, and since I switched to Gentoo I noticed that fonts in urxvt are really bigger than xterm.

Code:

! Xterm
XTerm*faceName: xft:Dejavu Sans Mono:pixelsize=11

XTerm*foreground:     rgb:dd/dd/dd
XTerm*background:     rgb:11/11/11
XTerm*color0:         rgb:19/19/19
XTerm*color8:         rgb:25/25/25
XTerm*color1:         rgb:80/32/32
XTerm*color9:         rgb:98/2b/2b
XTerm*color2:         rgb:5b/76/2f
XTerm*color10:        rgb:89/b8/3f
XTerm*color3:         rgb:aa/99/43
XTerm*color11:        rgb:ef/ef/60
XTerm*color4:         rgb:32/4c/80
XTerm*color12:        rgb:2b/4f/98
XTerm*color5:         rgb:70/6c/9a
XTerm*color13:        rgb:82/6a/b1
XTerm*color6:         rgb:92/b1/9e
XTerm*color14:        rgb:a1/cd/cd
XTerm*color7:         rgb:ff/ff/ff
XTerm*color15:        rgb:dd/dd/dd

! URxvt
URxvt*font: xft:Dejavu Sans Mono:pixelsize=11

URxvt*foreground:     rgb:dd/dd/dd
URxvt*background:     rgb:11/11/11
URxvt*color0:         rgb:19/19/19
URxvt*color8:         rgb:25/25/25
URxvt*color1:         rgb:80/32/32
URxvt*color9:         rgb:98/2b/2b
URxvt*color2:         rgb:5b/76/2f
URxvt*color10:        rgb:89/b8/3f
URxvt*color3:         rgb:aa/99/43
URxvt*color11:        rgb:ef/ef/60
URxvt*color4:         rgb:32/4c/80
URxvt*color12:        rgb:2b/4f/98
URxvt*color5:         rgb:70/6c/9a
URxvt*color13:        rgb:82/6a/b1
URxvt*color6:         rgb:92/b1/9e
URxvt*color14:        rgb:a1/cd/cd
URxvt*color7:         rgb:ff/ff/ff
URxvt*color15:        rgb:dd/dd/dd


It always worked before, I used it on FreeBSD, Fedora, Ubuntu ... But look at this screenshot, as you can see (top is xterm and bottom urxvt) spaces between letters are really bigger than urxvt.

rxvt-unicode is compiled with these use flags enabled: 256-color focused-urgency font-styles mousewheel perl unicode3 xft

Do you have any idea? I personally think about a fontconfig / xft issue.

Maybe antialiasing?

Offtopic: Maybe you want to switch
Code:
static const Bool resizehints = True; /* True means respect size hints in tiled resizals */
whit False in your dwm config.h ,that gaps around urxvt looks weird :P
Ontopic: Try to enable USE alt-font-width (in urxvt ) for your font problem maybe it helps :)
