    Default rxvt tabs setup

    I am trying to set my rxvt preferences.

    I have got the basics setup from this tutorial.Rxvt-Unicode Configuration Tutorial - AfterWiki which I put into ~/.Xdefaults
    Code:
    # transparency - true or false (default)
    URxvt*transparent: true
    
    # tint with any color; i.e., blue, red, tomato4, olivedrab2, etc.
    #   some nice listings are at:
    #     http://www.nisrv.com/drupal/?q=node/11
    #     http://www.htmlgoodies.com/tutorials/colors/article.php/3478921
    URxvt*tintColor: Blue
    
    # shading - 0 to 99 darkens, 101 to 200 lightens.
    #   Don't use with tintColor; just use a darker or lighter color instead.
    #URxvt*shading: 40
    
    # scrollback buffer lines - 65535 is max on most machines (64 is default)
    URxvt*saveLines: 12000
    
    # font color (default is black)
    URxvt*foreground: White
    
    # background color (prior to tinting) (default is white)
    URxvt*background: Blue
    
    # Xft (X FreeType) with Bitstream, DejaVu, Liberation, or Terminus fonts:
    #  Fedora/debian packages: libXft/libxft2 
    #  An anti-aliased font setup with Xft looks fantastic; it can be a bit choppy 
    #  on older systems. You can always turn off anti-aliasing (antialias=false) if
    #  your terminal is sluggish. Use only ONE of the Xft pairs below:
    #
    # Xft: Bitstream fonts
    #  Fedora/debian packages: bitstream-vera-sans-mono-fonts/ttf-bitstream-vera 
    #URxvt*font: xft:Bitstream Vera Sans Mono:pixelsize=12:antialias=true:hinting=true
    #URxvt*boldFont: xft:Bitstream Vera Sans Mono:bold:pixelsize=12:antialias=true:hinting=true
    #
    # Xft: DejaVu fonts
    #  Fedora/debian packages: dejavu-sans-mono-fonts/ttf-dejavu 
    URxvt*font: xft:DejaVu Sans Mono:pixelsize=12:antialias=true:hinting=true
    URxvt*boldFont: xft:DejaVu Sans Mono:bold:pixelsize=12:antialias=true:hinting=true
    #
    # Xft: Liberation fonts
    #  Fedora/debian packages: liberation-mono-fonts/ttf-liberation
    #URxvt*font: xft:Liberation Mono:pixelsize=13:antialias=true:hinting=true
    #URxvt*boldFont: xft:Liberation Mono:bold:pixelsize=13:antialias=true:hinting=true
    #
    # Xft: Terminus fonts
    #  Fedora/debian packages: terminus-fonts/xfonts-terminus
    #URxvt*font: xft:terminus:pixelsize=15
    #URxvt*boldFont: xft:terminus:bold:pixelsize=15
    
    # Traditional fonts - a more traditional font setup in lieu of xft
    #URxvt*font:-*-courier-medium-r-normal-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1
    #URxvt*boldFont:-*-courier-bold-r-normal-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1
    
    # Replace blue folder colors with a lighter shade for clarity. To
    #  set colored folders and files within urxvt, xterm, and aterm, add
    #  the following line to your ~/.bashrc ($HOME/.bashrc) file under
    #  the heading "# User specific aliases and functions":
    #   alias ls="ls -h --color=auto"
    URxvt*color4: RoyalBlue
    URxvt*color12: RoyalBlue
    
    # scrollbar - true (default) or false
    URxvt*scrollBar: true
    
    # scrollbar position - left=false (default) or right=true
    URxvt*scrollBar_right: false
    
    # scrollbar style - rxvt (default), plain, next, or xterm
    URxvt*scrollstyle: rxvt
    Then went looking on how to create tabs and found this suggestion to put this into ~/.Xresources
    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/rxvt-unicode#Tabs

    Code:
    # Tabs
    URxvt.perl-ext-common:  default,tabbed
    But that doesn't work for me. Any idea on how to set it up?
    looking to get a nice terminal setup.

    Default Re: rxvt tabs setup

    You could at least tell which version of openSUSE you use. May be a desktop is involved, then please tell which one (KDE, Gnome, ........).
