Strange what happens when you hit a key at the wrong time. I pressed the tab key by accident last night, and found this.
Where did that come from? I’ve been using rxvt-unicode off and on for years now, mostly because it can display antialiased fonts and pseudotransparency, but more recently because it can display Japanese text too. I never knew there was a tabbed version … or rather, I never bothered to look for one.
Serves me right. I’m guilty of running three or four terminals at a time and wringing my hands because I wished it would show tabs, and here all along (or at least sometime recently) tabs were a possibility. Once again, I’m late to the party.
Personally, I prefer Sakura still, just because I think Sakura is a little more considerate of graphical environments. urxvt-tabbed doesn’t seem to have any configurable points from the program itself. In other words, if you want to adjust pseudotransparency or set other options, you still have to do that from the .Xdefaults file. Sakura, on the other hand, has a nifty right-click menu that gives you the chance to change things while it’s running.
But this is very useful, and good to have on board. Arch has this in it by default; the Crux version will comply if you include gtk-perl when you build it. Ubuntu … I haven’t looked yet.
And that, again, was my original mistake.
