Wow, been spending a lot of time researching (non-X) rxvt & fonts.
Finally found "Lucida ConsoleP" (google for LuconP.zip) which allows
Midnight Commander to run with the correct line-drawing characters. But
even it has a flaw, at least on my system (Thinkpad A22p):
Everything I type at the command line, vi, etc. has a thin vertical bar
to the left and right of each character typed. For example, if I type
$ ls -Fla
it looks something like
$ |l|s| |-|F|l|a|
(The resulting directory listing doesn't show this, it's just what *I*
All the other fonts I tried exhibited this same characteristic, except
for two: Fixedsys and Courier New.
So I have to choose between Fixedsys/Courier New (which screw up the
linedraw chars in Midnight Commander), or LuconP (which does that
vertical bar weirdness). I would like to use LuconP without the weird
vertical bars. Any ideas?
