Currently installed version 9.18-7 of rxvt-unicode ignores -icon parameter due to being compiled with --disable-pixbuf. -icon is used to display an window icon instead of default icon.

I took the pkgbuild and replaced --disable-pixbuf with --enable-pixbuf and it compiled fine. When testing it, it displayed the icon again.

Additional info:

* version 9.18-7
* [2013-07-06 22:50] [PACMAN] upgraded rxvt-unicode (9.18-5 -> 9.18-7)

Steps to reproduce:

1. try "urxvt -icon youriconfile.png" with 9.18-7
2. opened window has default icon
3. compile as described above
4. try "./rxvt -icon youriconfile.png" with compiled version
5. opened window uses specified icon instead the default icon

Same as  FS#35329  which was closed as Won't fix.

Yeah, but just yelling “WONT FIX” does not solve the problem, that without pixbuf neither an own icon nor an own background is possible anymore.

Did you also see  FS#34862 ? They removed the gdk-pixbuf2 dependency on purpose. If you don't like this you can either use ABS or one of the custom AUR packages for rxvt-unicode. Also FWIW, someone did upload a rxvt-unicode-pixbuf package but it was later removed.

Yeah, but removing an important feature is still BS …
