1. NAME

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

2. SYNOPSIS

uxterm [ xterm-options ]

3. DESCRIPTION

uxterm is a wrapper around the

R xterm(1) program that invokes the latter program with the (oqUXTerm(cq 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 determined, the locale (oqen_US(cq (the English language as used in the territory of the United States) is assumed. The

R 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

R 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 (oqxfonts-base(cq package provides the fonts that

uxterm uses by default. To change the fonts

uxterm uses, edit the /etc/X11/app-defaults/UXTerm file.

A similar wrapper,

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

4. ENVIRONMENT

LC_ALL\fR, LC_CTYPE, \fBLANG

    The values of these variables are checked, in order, to determine the character set used by the current locale.
