Urxvt PET runs rxvt fix

December 19, 2019 — BarryK

Puppy Forum member 'zygo' reported that menu "Utility -> Urxvt terminal emulator" actually runs rxvt. This is in both Easy Pyro and Easy Buster.

Actually, /usr/bin/rxvt is a symlink to /usr/bin/urxvt, so it is really urxvt that runs, however, it behaves as though it is rxvt, including using bitmap font.

I have fixed the Urxvt PET package so that the menu entry now runs urxvt, with truetype font.  Also, in woofQ, rootfs-templates/rxvt-unicode/usr/share/applications/urxvt.desktop is fixed.
