https://bbs.archlinux.org – Hey all,I've been trying out and reading up on different terminals lately, and have been gradually tweaking my .Xresources along the way.I spent some time working in urxvt, and getting unicode and font support working there was pretty straight-forward. Now I'd like to learn how to do the same thing with xterm, and if possibly also in in the virtual console.Currently, when I try to display unicode characters (e.g. 中文) in either, I just see rectangular blocks.Here is what I have in .Xresources now:xterm*faceName: Droid Sans Mono:pixelsize=24 xterm*dynamicColors: true xterm*utf8: 2M (HowTos)
