==<s>Fix the alt key section</s>==
 
For a user which is customized to emacs keybinding, such as {{ic|alt+f}} and {{ic|alt+b}} to move a word forward and backward, {{ic|alt+d}} and {{ic|alt+backspace}} to delete a word forward and backward, one may want xterm to behave as such. For this type of user, {{ic|XTerm*eightBitInput: false}} or {{ic|XTerm*metaSendsEscape: true}} is needed so that {{ic|xterm}} behaves as expected.
 
 
For a user which is customized to default xterm settings, such as {{ic|alt+d}} to type {{ic|ä}} and {{ic|alt+f}} to type {{ic|æ}}, the default {{ic|xterm}} behavior, i.e. {{Ic|XTerm*eightBitInput: true}} and {{Ic|XTerm*metaSendsEscape: false}}, is more suitable.

"some unusual features"

What is this referring to? I'm curious to know. Brianbaligad (talk) 06:07, 20 October 2013 (UTC)

The Tek terminal emulation, changing from Xlfd to xft type faces by a menu selection, and the Ctrl-Mouseclick pop-up menus, all seem unusual to me. Being able to customize the mouse-click text selections using regular expressions is a newer feature of xterm that might be considered unusual. Too bad the wiki article doesn't cover that how-to.

trannset-df with xterm emulators

I use xfce-terminal. I think it emulates xterm when compatibility is needed, is it the same as being defined? 'Cause I'm getting errors. Lelele (talk)

Xfce-terminal does not set or use the $TERM variable in the same way as xterm. Xfce-terminal man pages refer to termcap and Archlinux uses terminfo. See this forum thread.
