Attached rxvt-2.7.20.pet is compiled with
Code:
--enable-utmp --enable-mousewheel --enable-static --disable-shared --enable-xpm-background --enable-transparency --enable-menubar --enable-languages
using uclibc and linked static - so might work in most Puppy versions.

1. In P412 the pet install just breaks - no sign of what goes wrong - and no install happens. Turns out that /root/.packages/packages.txt have the line:
Code:
"rxvt-2.7.10" "rxvt 2.7.10: x terminal. do not use, pasting not work properly" off "Utility 180K" \

After deleting this line the package installs correct. Did not know that some packages was eliminated by design. I do not know if other Puppy versions behave the same. The warning is correct though, but seems to depend mostly on the source from which the paste are done (fx. from geany it does not work, from seamonkey it works).

2. Getting transparent background by adding
Code:
Rxvt*inheritPixmap: true
to your /root/.Xdefaults file. This "works" in version rxvt-2.6.4 too - but it is the real root window you see and not fx. ROX-Filer wallpaper.

3. Getting an image background by adding
Code:
Rxvt*backgroundPixmap:/usr/share/pixmaps/yellowlined.xpm
to your /root/.Xdefaults file. This works fine in version rxvt-2.6.4 as well.

4. Getting a menu in rxvt by adding
Code:
Rxvt*menu: /root/.rxvt.menu
to your /root/.Xdefaults file (and create a proper /root/.rxvt.menu)

Above might be old news - but new findings for me.

The mentioned yellowlined.xpm and .rxvt.menu are included in package.
