Description sa wu 2009-01-10 03:49:38 UTC
I am trying to use
media-fonts/unifont-5.1.20080914 in my terminal.
Unfortunately xterm scales the fixed size version very badly and cannot handle the proportional ttf version.
Using rxvt unicode resolves this but displays some glyphs differently (i.e not at all).
As an example see (or some of the other files)
On my box the Ethiopian section is fully displayed when using xterm (with both fixed size version and ttf version) and cat/less/vim.
With urxvt (and the same font, both versions) not these glyphs are displayed, instead the box for a missing glyph.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open
2. compare less/vim/cat output of file in xterm and urxvt

Actual Results:  
amharic section glyphs displayed in xterm, not in urxvt

Expected Results:  
same glyphs

Does this happen with x11-terms/rxvt-unicode-9.06-r1  ?

Which urxvt settings do you use?

Created attachment 208450 [details]
unifont fail

Bug reproduced.
We'll probably have to take the issue upstream.

Over 10 years of inactivity in the ticket, version long gone from the tree. Closing.
