Putting {{ic|XTerm.vt100.metaSendsEscape: true}} in my X resource file did not change anything about the behaviour of my xterm. However, {{ic|xterm*eightBitInput: false}} did the trick. Can anyone confirm my findings?

"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.

Make 'Alt' key behave as on other terminal emulators

Putting XTerm.vt100.metaSendsEscape: true in my X resource file did not change anything about the behaviour of my xterm. However, xterm*eightBitInput: false did the trick. Can anyone confirm my findings? --Genericaf (talk) 14:02, 28 April 2018 (UTC)
