Get URXVT's Icon to display

PostPosted by Dobbie03 » Sun Jun 04, 2017 3:33 pm

Okay, if you use URXVT you may have noticed that the correct icon doesn't show in Tint2 or your panel. This is how you fix it.

Open your .Xresources file in Geany (or your favourite editor), add this line:

Code: Select all
URxvt*iconFile: /usr/share/icons/[i]icon-theme[/i]/64x64/apps/terminal.svg


Where icon-theme represents the link to the terminal icon you want to use. 64x64 could also be replaced with scalable, it just depends on what icon theme and where the icon is placed.

Then in your terminal install from the AUR, rxvt-unicode-pixbuf. This will conflict with URXVT so just approve the removal of URXVT. You could use this:

Code: Select all
yaourt -S rxvt-unicode-pixbuf


Once installation is complete, close any URXVT windows and reopen them. Voila, icon in the panel.

Any issues hit me up.

Cheers

Reload .Xresources first with

xrdb ~/.Xresources

in the terminal
then it will work

or

reboot
