I am using Emacs running in an urxvt, and I cannot get italics to work in Emacs although the terminal supports it.
Here’s my current setup:
- I haven’t set
$TERM, so it is the default
URxvt.font: xft:Inconsolata:size=15as the terminal font.
echo '\e[3mitalics\e[m'in the shell indeed yields
italics, so italics in the terminal do work, basically.
When customizing the “Italic” face, it doesn’t make any difference whether I select
roman as the value for the
Slant attribute, nor does it if I don’t set the
Slant attribute at all. I also tried this in combination with explicitly defining
URxvt.italicFont in my
~/.Xdefaults, but to no avail.
Bold works fine, italic doesn’t work at all. Any ideas?
