NAME

xterm-conf - change configuration of a running xterm

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    xterm-conf [-f|-force] [options]
    xterm-conf [-is-supported]



DESCRIPTION

Change configuration of a running xterm and compatible terminal emulators (e.g. rxvt).

See XTerm::Conf for a complete option list.

Additionaly, <B>xterm-confB> supports the <B>-fB> option to force a terminal configuration change without checking the TERM environment variable before. This is useful e.g. when running in a screen or tmux session within an xterm.

If xterm-conf is called on an unsupported terminal, then nothing happens.

xterm-conf --is-supported can be used to check if a terminal is support, if so, a true exit value (exit code = 0) is returned, otherwise a false exit value (exit code = 1).

    EXAMPLES

Change the title, foreground and background colors of the running xterm:



    xterm-conf --title "The new xterm title" --fg black --bg white



If running a screen or tmux in an xterm, then the --force switch has to be used because of the different TERM value:



    xter-conf --force --title "The new xterm title" --fg black --bg white
