'''Funtoo Linux''' is a Linux-based operating system that is a variant of [http://www.gentoo.org Gentoo Linux]. Funtoo Linux is:

* ...'''fun!''' Our priority is to create a ''great, supportive and responsive'' user community.
 +
* ...'''user-centric and collaborative'''. Everyone is considered a '''user''' of Funtoo, first and foremost. You don't need any special privileges to collaborate with us.
 +
* ...'''production-oriented''': Our goal is to have Funtoo be useful for ''real-world tasks''. We use Funtoo to do stuff, like host our infrastructure. It needs to work.__NOTOC__
 +
* ...'''creative''': We seek creative, elegant and maintainable solutions to problems of all kinds.
  
Urxvt is a clone of [[Package:Rxvt|rxvt]], to which xft fonts and unicode characters support were added. This is an alternative to [[Package:Xterm|Xterm]], the X default terminal emulator.

We encourage you to '''[[Funtoo Linux Installation|install Funtoo Linux]]''', and get involved in our user community. Get to know fellow Funtoo Linux users on our '''[http://forums.funtoo.org forums]'''. If you have any improvements or find any bugs in Funtoo Linux, you are strongly encouraged to report them on our '''[http://bugs.funtoo.org bug tracker]'''. We take all bugs seriously, and all work performed on Funtoo Linux is tracked on our bug tracker, for purposes of transparency.
  
It is very likely that when you will launch Urxvt for the first time, you will want to make some customizations so that your terminal doesn't look ugly and fit your tastes. So we will go into it. If it does not exist, create a file <code>~/.Xresources</code>.
+
Funtoo Linux has a very active [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IRC IRC] community on Freenode, in the <code>#funtoo</code> channel, and you are encouraged to hang out online with us.

{{fancyimportant|You may be used to handle your terminal configuration in <code>~/.Xdefaults</code> which is generally autoloaded when you start X. However, this method is deprecated. So you should use <code>~/.Xresources</code> now.}}
+
Funtoo Linux packages are installed from source code, automatically, thanks to the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portage_(software) Portage ports system.], inspired by the FreeBSD ports system, but written in Python and with full advanced package management functionality. Funtoo Linux is a meta-distribution, which means it is built (fully automatically) with the functionality and optimizations that ''you'' want, not what some distro maintainer thought was best for you.
  
If you use a display manager, <code>~/.Xresources</code> is probably automatically loaded. If this is not the case, you will have to load it manually in your <code>~/.xinitrc</code> with the command <code>xrdb ~/.Xresources</code>. If you want to split your configuration into multiple files, you can also use the <code>-merge</code> option of <code>xrdb</code> so that the last called file doesn't override the others.
+
We use [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Git_(software) Git] for all our development, and we also use Git to deliver our ports tree to you.

In contrast to Gentoo Linux, we offer a number of innovations, including our extensive use of git, [[Funtoo 1.0 Profile|our profile system]], [[Package:Boot-Update|boot-update]] boot management tool, our incredibly flexible [[Funtoo Linux Networking|template-based networking scripts]], [[Metro Quick Start Tutorial|Metro]] distribution build system, support of Debian, RHEL and other kernels, [[Creating_Python-related_Ebuilds|enhanced Python support]], Portage mini-manifests, user-centric distribution model, and a large number of community infrastructure improvements.

{{fancynote|The prefix ''URxvt'' is optional. It is actually the namespace of the property you define.

+
'''Add an Ebuild page:''' (see [[Adding an Ebuild to the Wiki]] for instructions)
  
You can also redefine other colors. For instance, I redefined color0 so that it is close to the background color (to display invisible characters in [[Package:Vim|Vim]]) and color12 to a more readable color than dark blue on black:

When you spend a lot of time on your terminal, it is important to have a lean and readable font. A good font designed for console is '''Inconsolata''. If you want to use it, you have to emerge it first.
