Hey, you. :) Were you using an anti-aliased xterm before? > UXTerm*VT100.faceName: monotype.com > UXTerm*VT100.faceSize: 8 Well, Andale Mono and monotype.com are not necessarily the same font, but monotype.com is what I use. *Neither*, however, incorporates line-drawing characters. XTerm must manufacture them on-the-fly. That's fine, but XTerm can only do that for AA'd fonts in XTerm-175 and later. For Debian, that means you have to be running XFree 4.3.0. See http://dickey.his.com/xterm/xterm.log.html#xterm_175 I thought you ran testing/unstable, so it should be working for you. :) XTerm-180 also adds fixes specific to Unicode and AA rendering. If you're using -177, line-drawing characters may not appear to touch, among other things. But they should still render. See http://dickey.his.com/xterm/xterm.log.html#xterm_180 I have also just tested. I have line-drawing characters here in UXTerm and mutt works as expected. The sole content of my resources that is specific to UXTerm is: UXTerm*VT100.faceName: monotype.com UXTerm*VT100.faceSize: 12 (that wasn't there before, I added it to test) I tested with both XTerm-177 (what's currently in unstable) and with XTerm-180 (what I use locally). You're not passing +fbx (telling XTerm NOT to manufacture line-drawing characters) or setting the forceBoxChars resource to 'true', are you? -- Marc Wilson | Any programming language is at its best before it email@example.com | is implemented and used.
