@richese, I will look through this. Our config.h files are identical. The one thing which stands out in your config.log is that you are on gcc 11, and I am on gcc 10.

If anyone else sees this, can you confirm if this is a problem for you, too? So we can see how pervasive the issue is.

Thanks for the help @biell

No, I do not use tmux or screen, just i3-wm for window manager.

I added config.h, config.log from makepkg and my .Xdefaults here:

I tried these things but no luck: - remove my config from ~/.Xdefaults - launch urxvt instead of daemon+client - change my shell to bash (instead of fish)

Are you running screen or tmux @richese? This always works for me without running screen. But, I do notice that screen does seem to be getting in my way sometimes.

Here is a copy of urxvt 9.26 without screen able to display the image:

Seems like the terminal is not able to show background images after update to 9.26 Noticed it in ranger because no image preview was displayed for any files.

I tried to display an image in the same way that ranger does it. Nothing shows up in 9.26 but I get nice centered Firefox logo in 9.22 with the same escape sequence:

printf '\033]20;/usr/share/icons/hicolor/256x256/apps/firefox.png;10x100+50+50:op=keep-aspect\a'

Updated to 9.26 and it builds clean. Comment if there are any issues.

I cannot open urxvt anymore, I get this error:

urxvt: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

And I cannot rebuild the package, I get a 404 error for the source:

FYI for those running into errors while rebuilding: Due to an updated libperl I had to rebuild this package (see earlier comments). However, because I also updated GCC from 10 to 11, libev failed to build due to:

error: ISO C++17 does not allow dynamic exception specifications

The temporary fix was to tell GCC to build using the C++14 (GCC10 default) standard instead of C++17 (GCC11 default). This can be done by adding the following as the first line in the build(){} script inside the PKGBUILD:

The PKG version needs to be updated and the patches refreshed. Please update the package or add me as a co-maintainer and I can do it, I have a working local copy.

As far as I know, this is the only AUR build with pixbuf support enabled, so some people really rely on this one.

adig15 commented on 2021-05-20 19:39

For me the build failed... Since this returns 404 ->

To prevent this, edit the PKGBUILD to update the link to the available version (currently 9.26) from

Consider adding this patch to avoid segfaults on exit.

EDIT: I should mention that due to the segfault, tridactyl's edit-in-vim would refuse to work, this patch solved the segfault and thus it also solved my issue.
