uxterm (1)

Name

uxterm - 8) environments

Synopsis

uxterm [ xterm-options ]

Description

UXTERM(1)                       X Window System                      UXTERM(1)



NAME
       uxterm - X terminal emulator for Unicode (UTF-8) environments

SYNOPSIS
       uxterm [ xterm-options ]

DESCRIPTION
       uxterm is a wrapper around the xterm(1) program that invokes the latter
       program with the "UXTerm" X  resource  class  set.   All  arguments  to
       uxterm  are  passed  to  xterm  without  processing; the -class and -u8
       options should not be specified because they are used by  the  wrapper.
       See the xterm manual page for more information on xterm-options.

       The environment's locale settings (see "ENVIRONMENT" below) are used to
       discern the locale's character set.  If no current locale can be deter-
       mined,  the  locale "en_US" (the English language as used in the terri-
       tory of the United States) is assumed.  The locale(1) utility  is  used
       to  determine  whether  the system supports the selected locale.  If it
       does not, uxterm will exit with an  error  and  report  the  output  of
       locale.

       Note:  uxterm  may  produce unexpected results if the current locale is
       set to one in which the UTF-8 character encoding is not  supported,  or
       if fonts using the ISO 10646-1 character set are not available.  In the
       Debian system, the "xfonts-base" package provides the fonts that uxterm
       uses   by   default.   To  change  the  fonts  uxterm  uses,  edit  the
       /usr/share/X11/app-defaults/UXTerm file.

       A similar wrapper, koi8rxterm(1), is available for KOI8-R environments.

ENVIRONMENT
       LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE, LANG
              The values of these variables are checked, in order,  to  deter-
              mine the character set used by the current locale.
