Package: xterm
Version: 210-3
Severity: wishlist

Hello Xorg-Team and Maintainer,

While localizeing and themeing the Xresources/app-defaults, I do not
know whether the Toolbar is compiled in or not.  I know, there is an
Option to disable/enable it. but I have found nothing releated.

Please can you tell me HOW to enable the Toolbar?

OR, it this XTerm was not compiled with it, PLEASE can you enable it.

And if you are interested in localization of Xresources/app-defaults,
please look at the attached Screenshoot because this E-Mail was written
with a localized (german) "xedit" and and the "lightblue" theme.

On the right in the background you can see "editres" working.

Thanks, Greetings and nice Day

Probably not, since this aggravates some known problems with layout.
One might suggest adding a different executable packaged with the
toolbar.

I already responded to this (it's not my decision, but I recommended
that a separate package be made for this configuration).

As I explained, that option aggravates known problems with the layout -
though I almost always use that configuration, the problems would annoy
enough regular users that it should be a separate package.

What do you mean with "problems with the Layout"?

If the toolbar is enabled, you will get automaticaly a new ITEM in the
"VT Options" menu and CResource to set the default to "true" or "false".

I'll try to describe the problem.

Background -
When xterm is built to support the toolbar, that adds another level to
the widget hierarchy.  xterm's layout computation does some special
things to make the screen size in terms of whole characters.  Part of
the problem is in xterm, part in the X libraries.  Some window managers
(the ones that don't _negotiate_ layout changes, but dictate) aggravate
things.

Problem -
One of the ways to see the problem is to switch font-sizes, e.g., making
the vt100 window narrower than the toolbar.  Switching back/forth, e.g.,
with shift keypad plus/minus, for _certain_ screensizes will cause the
rows/columns of the vt100 window to change.  In some cases, it will
shrink, and cannot easily be restored.

In testing, I set xterm's border to be a different color, making it
simpler to see the problem.
